Have you cleaned the spray arms? Cleaned the filter?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No how do I get to the filter?

Sorry for the delay. Pull out the bottom dish rack so you can access the lower spray arm. Use pliers to loosen and remove the spray arm retaining nut. Lift the spray arm from the bottom of the dishwasher to access the screws holding the filter cover over the filter flow plate.
