kudc210s2 Kitchenaid dishwasher lower spray arm removal problems

1 post in this topic

I've managed to keep my late 80's kitchenaid dishwasher running well with minor repairs in the past few years.  Repairs like water valve replacement, rebuilding the detergent dispenser etc.  Now I find that the upper spray arm doesn't always rotate. I've cleaned it and made sure it seats well on the water line in the rear.  I suspect that the filter is clogged.  I can't get to it though because I can't remove the lower spray arm assembly.  I've had it off in the past, but now it won't budge. I don't want to get too rough with it, because they are hard to find if I break it, and I'm worried about breaking something in the pump.

The machine fills properly

My questions:

1. Do you think that cleaning the fine mesh filter is what I should be looking at?

2. If so, any ideas on how to get the lower arm assembly out?
