How to remove Sprayer Arms

I have a Maytag dishwasher that's not cleaning well.
My guess is that the spray rms need to be cleaned,. I saw some clogged hole, but can't figure out how to remove the arm.
I can see that the sides unclasp, but that's it.

Thanks

    I can't find a thumbscrew. The metal sleeves are fastened by two tabs on each side. I removed one but there is nothing there.

    I located it. It's the top plastic piece thatlooks like a doughnot.

    Thanks for your help.

Dishes on top shelf do not get clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.

Also, dishwasher detergents need HOT water, so be certain the water is at 140 degrees. Make sure your detergent is fresh!
Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.

And of course, when you're loading the dishwasher, be sure none of the items are resting ON each other. This will prevent the water from circulating and cleaning.

Top spray arms dont work.


Most likely you have debris blocking the holes in the spray arms. The spray arms can be removed and cleaned out in your sink. (blocked holes in the lower spray arm arm almost impossible to clean out)

Dishwasher appear to be clogged


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck
