Question about Dishwashers
We have hard water deposits on the pump and motor and need to take it apart for cleaning. We removed the 6 screws in the housing but the sprayer arm and top to the motor won't come off. How do we get it apart so we can use CLR and clean out the housing and sprayer? Our dishes are not getting cleaned because water is not getting out with enough force.
Without a model number, or even a brand / manufacturer, it is nearly impossible to tell you how your product comes apart. Many brands have a screw (often times with left hand threads) holding the spray arm on, while others may come off by just lifting on the spray arm while turning it CCW, or might have locking clips which need to be released.
In any case, before going that far, go to a hardware, appliance parts, or possibly grocery store to find a product called Dishwasher Magic. It is in a small rectangular bottle. Use that as directed in a cycle to clean out your dishwasher. The spray arms may need to be cleaned out of blockage from candy wrapers, toothpicks, seeds, etc., or possibly even replaced if unable to fully clean out. Also, dishwashers will not clean very well if you are using hard water. I'd suggest looking into installing a water softener.
