How do I gain access to the mesh screen? Does the filter come apart?
Answer Hello Chris. No, you can not remove the screen from the filter 6-914124. If the screen is bad, you will need to replace the filter in the unit. Hope this helps.
Does the inlets on the secondary filter cover have to align with the ones coming out of the dishwasher?
Answer Hello Paperman. Yes, you will need to align the inlets on the sump assembly and the filter 6-914124. Hope this helps.
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
