    Not cleaning well, especially the upper rack.
    Based on troubleshooting guidance from this site, ordered 3 parts: middle and top spray arms, and a chopper. Removed upper rack and flipped it over to get to the middle spray arm. Removed a single screw to remove the spray arm an replace. Noticed a small hole in the manifold that supplies water to the middle spray arm. (Will need replacing soon.) That was the easy part. We have very hard municiple water that has left a lot of mineral deposits, even with regular use of cleaning tablets. So, the upper sprayer also needed to be replaced: it was not spinning freely. This required removing the feed tube for the top sprayer enough to pop the sprayer off. (There is a video describing how to do this.) Because the chopper was also being replaced the whole sprayer feed tube needed to be removed. Between the videos and the part diagrams I was able to get down to the chopper protector, but removing the screw did not "free up" the protector. The minerals from the hard water nearly "welded" it in place. Was finally able to carefully pry it up from the screw tab with a paint can opener. The chopper had come apart and the chopper's screen was almost completely clogged with gunk. Replaced the chopper and reassembled. Also, all through the whole repair process I did a lot of scraping and soaking with white vinegar to get a lot of the mineral deposits off areas exposed during the repair, though not neArly all deposit. The site was a great help. Thanks to all who contributed.

    Top tray not clean-spotty residue on dishes and glasses
    The discharge hose was replaced, the original was loaded with residue but not blocked. Next I checked the possible parts to cause the problem-ordered and replaced. I did use a device, small wooden shim to assist installing the chopper. It was used to depress the spring during the installation.

    Tab on the top level spinner broke
    This was truly one of the only "10-minute jobs" I've ever done. I pulled out the racks, took out two screws, popped in the piece and replaced everything before anyone knew I had even started. The video provided was a nice touch.

    Pin holding spinner broke & had to be replaced
    The instruction video did not apply to my model of Whirlpool dishwasher, and because of that, the repair was more difficult than I expected. The manifold, for example, has to be re-attached differently, so I had to figure things out on my own.. and there are screws instead of snaps. So beware..if you think this repair will be easy, and take you maybe 15-mins, tops, think again. And yeah, the video *should* tell you to cover the floor of the dishwasher. Many thanks to the consumer who posted that info on his or her own.
