Question about Dishwashers
If you have hard water, it is likely that the sprayer in the bottom of the dishwasher has become clogged with hard water deposits. This may be the case, even with soft water.
On most models, the sprayer looks like a propellor, and can be removed by carefully unscrewing the fastener at the top and carefully removing the sprayer. If you have a digital camera, I recommend taking pictures at each disassembly step, so you know how to put things back together (in the reverse order that they were removed). It should not be too difficult to remove it, but you may have to gently work with the fastener at the top to get it to budge.
You will need to clean all the spray holes and ensure that none are clogged. I used an ice pick and toothpicks to clean out the holes recently on my dishwasher. (We have hard water).
You may need to soak the sprayer in vinegar overnight if you're not able to completely clean out all the holes.
