Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If water still sprays out the lower arm, you have 2 possibilities. ither you have a bad circulation pump and motor assembly or your disposal screen is getting clogged and needs to be cleaned out. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to clean out your disposal and take your pump apart.

If you clean out the screen and it still won't wash the dishes properly, then the entire circulation pump and motor assembly will need to be ordered and replaced, and that's a $150 part. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to replace the pump and motor if you wanted to do that
