Question about Viking DFUD042 Built-in Dishwasher
Viking dishwasher. We have two of them. One works great but the other sometimes leaves grit on the glassware on the top rack. I'm wondering if the upper spray arm should be checked and if so, the proper way to do so. Do I just pry off the upper arm? I see two plastic clip-type of things holding it on.

the spray arm just screws back on, unless of course its cracked in which case needs replacing( chances are since it fell off its cracked) heres the part num 154478202

Sounds like the hose assembly that attaches to the rear of the upper rack has come undone. just pull out the upper rack and reconnect it.
please rate my answer as a fixya! thanks.

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water
shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to
the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill
cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at
the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either
side), in which case replace the water valve.
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

I removed the lower spray arm, and then the filter. I found that there was a lot of buildup under the filter area. I scraped the buildup off. I found that it was restricting the input of water flow to the pump
