Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Under the lower spray arm is a large object filter. There are two 1/4" screws holding it in place. Remove that filter (number 506 in the diagram at the link below). Pull number 508 out and see if that area in there is plugged with food and debris. Let me know what you find.
