The plastic nut looks fragile. Is it OK to try channel lock pliers on it?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX Now we are down to the plate covering the filter. Do we remove the 6 (star head) screws in order to access the filter? We actually were able to remove the plate by removing the screws.
Now that we have removed the filter, we notice that there is water sitting in the bottom of the dishwasher. Is this normal? The filter is dirty and we are cleaning it now but should we do something else to get rid of the water?---We notice there are bolts below where the filter was.. Do we need to remove them.
Also, looks like we need to clean the top spray jet. How do we access that?
We cleaned the filter with a stiff brush but some pores are still filled with what looks like soap. What is a good way to clean it better? Will vinegar or bleach help to dissolve the residue? About 10% of the pores are still plugged.
Thanks. Should we clean the top water jet as well? If so how do we remove it?
I do see deposits coming out of the holes. How do you suggest that we remove the upper spray arm? Thanks
That worked. Thanks! We are now trying to reassemble and will get back to you if we get stuck in the process.
The dishwasher is all put back together and we are running it for a trial now. Thank you soooooo much. What we really appreciated in addition to your expert advice was how timely you were in getting back to us. We will definitely plan on contacting you for our appliance questions again. Have a good day!
