It still doesn't clean, though, and through quick door-opening action I see that the lower spray arm isn't spinning. Some water comes out, not enormously forcefully. The little tower in the middle goes up, but the roof of the dw's still dirty.
The gasket around the metal grate's more or less rotted, and this thing is 12 years old. Call it a day or fight on?

...and the DW is now washing merrily away, thanks to manual addition of 2.5 gal hot water from the tap. Spray arms spinning away, water dripping from top. Drains fine. New water inlet valve: $45. New DW plus installation: Minimum of $325 for crapola DW, more for better. I might even spring for having a pro hook it up so's I don't risk setting my house on fire. (Circuit diagrams, I'm just fine. Real-world application: er...better get someone else.) It's also clear that the dead disposal needs...er, cleaning out. Or something. Replacing, eventually. Water backs up in that side of the sink, drains slowly.
I'll let you know how it goes. Thank you, Samurai!
