I knew I should have waited a little longer, new part already ordered.

I'm tired of taking this thing apart and being without a dishwasher.
Everything else will get the vinegar and brass brush treatment when the new part arrives.

Thank you again!

Steve

Make sure you clean the slits in the back flush arms, so it won't do it again. Also I run a cup of white vinegar once a week in mine to clean things out. With dishes wait until it starts washing then open the door and dump it in. Close the door and let it run the cycle.
