Anyone else out there have advice for us looking to fully remove/clean drain assembly?


I have been trying to figures out how access/clean the filter for quite a while, let me know if you know how.

Hey guys. This is the post I found when I was looking for directions to access my waterfall dishwasher from Samsung.  I took some pictures for the next guy.
My problem was a broken chunk of glass made its way into the impeller. Careful with the bottom flap. It has some little tabs that could break easily. The last movement once you've popped the bottom is to flip it up.
Also the pump, grab it and turn it clockwise and then pull out.  Your model might be different. But that's what mine was. And yes, you have to put it on its face, so put a blanket down and drain any water out with a sponge and bucket.
Cheers.

One more thing;
It's a perfect opportunity to adjust the back foot if you're out of level.
I had to detatch all the hoses, and take disconnect the power. Remember, be safe. Don't eff with it with the water or power on.

I found that wooden door shims work great too for leveling dishwasher with hard to reach back legs. Or even dishwasher with no adjustable back legs.
