My daughter sprayed fruit cleaning spray on the screen and it got behind it. There must be two layers to the screen because there is liquid behind the front screen. When I peak behind the screen I can't clean it and I cant' get the whole thing off. Any ideas on how to fix?
Actually, I had the same thing happen to me. I was considering taking the unit in to have it serviced, however, after a few days the liquid finally evaporated. I live in AZ, where it is dry ... I guess it helps.

Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.
For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.
This model relies on the top spray arm to 'wash' the detergent out of the soap dispenser - and that is the problem. Your top spray arm will not be turning properly. Check the angled jet on the very tip of the arms for blockages with food or fruit pips etc - it's this angle only that makes the arms turn.
if blocked, clean out with a pin or wire, and running water - make sure you get every bit out. If not, buy a new spray arm. If the arm is split, you will need a new one.
Other problems may be low water level or a faulty circulation pump - BUT check the spray arms first.
Remember a dishwasher is NOT a garbage disposal unit, so scrape any food particles of plates etc before putting them in the machine. Run a dishwasher cleaner through with no load once in awhile.
Take a clean cloth and spray some windex on the cloth and then wipe down the screen and it should come nice and clean. Never spray it directly on the screen cause if the liquid goes down inside of the screen then it could damage it.
It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.
get a bottle of canned air, about 10 bucks. hold it upside down, and spray the liquid on the gum(despite what the directions tell you to do). gently pell off from one side of the gum, constantly spraying underneath the gum so it stays frozen. follow up with windex, or a normal LCD screen cleaner. Be careful not to get the liquid on your skin, as it can cause 3rd degree burns, and in worst cases, FROSTBITE. Trust me I know(1 Freshmen + 1 bottle canned air X 1 senior = pain for both parties) What this does, is freeze the sugar molecules in the gum from contracting when it is pulled by freezing them to a near sub zero temperature.
