Can the secondary filter be taken apart for cleaning?
ANSWER Mrs. Johnson, Yes the both the filter plate and the micro mesh filter can be removed and cleaned 6-914124 and 99001791, You will need to remove the lower rack and unscrew the wash arm cap and remove the nozzle ( make sure you install the nozzle back the same way when you reinstall). Lift the spray arm and guard plate off the spray arm support, and remove the 1/4 inch hex head screws holding the filter plate to the pump housing, and lift the plate off the assembly. Do Not loose the plastic ring(s) that attach to the spray arm support under the plate. Remove the micro mesh filter and soak both components in hot water and White Vinegar, A soft scrub brush can be used to clear any heavy deposits, but be careful don't damage the filter area. Thanks and Good Luck
