Broken Glass in Kenmore 15685 & can't remove Wash Impeller Screw

\015 Hi! Can Anyone Help Me?! \015\012\015\012I have a Kenmore 15685 dishwasher, and I broke a big glass pot lid in it today. Thousands of shards immediately gravitated into the little crevices between the vents and screen of the filter. \015\012\015\012It looks like I could shop vac the glass out pretty easily & thoroughly, if I could only get the filter assembly off! It's bolted in there by what looks like one centered hex bolt atop a black rubbery-looking disc (maybe the top of the pump?), but when I try to loosen the bolt, it just spins--not like it's stripped or anything, but like it's spinning because that's what it's supposed to do when the dishwasher's running. \015\012\015\012I'm really hoping this is something I can do myself, although my gut tells me this is some weird thing Sears has done to keep their service dept. busy. Hopefully I'm wrong. I've got houseguests coming in 2 days and I have to run the dishwasher constantly as it is!! Thanks!\015

I have a whirpool Quiet Partner III, and the top layer of glasses is not getting clean.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #665.13842K601. The problem that it has is that it does not seem to be pumping the water around the tub after it fills. It will fill and drain fine but will not wash. I have removed the spray arms and checked all the parts that I can get to from the inside but fear that it may be a pump or jammed impeller. it does make a faint buzzing sound when it should be operating. Any input would be great. Thanks, Matt
