When opening the door after a wash cycle, I found that a 5 inch Pyrex bowl had somehow broken and the shards had collected around and into the gray screen below the lower arm. I removed the larger pieces but would like to disassemble this arm and screen and remove the smaller shards that slipped through the screen before running another cycle. How do I do this? Thank you.

ANSWER Mike, Here's some basic help "Remove the two (2) dishracks from the dishwasher tub. Remove the two (2) screws securing the Inner Feed Tube to the inside of the dish washer tub. Rotate the rear feed cap ΒΌ turn clockwise. The entire inner water tube assembly and the lower spray arm assembly can now be removed from the dishwasher tub. Remove the four (4) screws securing the soil accumulator from the sump base. The soil accumulator will now lift free of the sump base. Remove the screw securing the foreign objects protector to the sump base and remove the protector.Remove the screw securing the inlet protector to the pump base and lift the inlet protector out. Remove the chopper assembly from the impeller shaft and lift it from the sump base. The check valve, located between the wash motor and the drain can be removed with a pair of needle nose pliers. With the wash motor removed, the separation screen can be removed from the sump base." A small "shop vac" works very well for removing the glass and water. Thanks
