\015\012The pump is not difficult to remove and replace. If you have a little bit of mechanical ability, you can replace the pump easily. You can find the pump by following the drain line into the bottom of the dishwasher. The drain line connects to the pump.
The pump will come out fairly easily by removing a couple of fasteners. Make sure you find an exact replacement part or you could be in for a world of trouble.

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

GSD4000N Dishwasher not draining. I removed the sprayer arm, the round flat screen, the cage over the drain and the other plastic fixture that sits down in the drain area.
