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?

Thanks.
