HI!
Thanks to the video I found here I was able to find out that the chopper assembly of my dishwasher is screwed up. The blade is not even attached to the shaft anymore. I found the blade, cap, and metal washer inside on the bottom of the chopper chamber. I found one round metal shaped like a dime and I can't figure out where it came from. Is it even part of the dishwasher or is it just something that got in there somehow?

I attached a picture of it. Sorry about the pic, I used my cell phone :)

Hi,

Can't think of what part of the dishwasher that would have come from.
Maybe it's just something that got in with the dishes.

reybie:
Thanks!  O0
I'm hoping my part comes in today so I can go ahead and install it and give my first dishwasher repair a try!  :D

AJ:
That would be great!
Keep us updated. Glad the video helped you out.

I guess shipping takes a while from where I ordered it from, not due til Monday. Oh well, while I'm at it. I attached a picture of the heating element from the dishwasher and I'm a little worried that it too would need replacing. That or it just got covered by a couple of years worth of buildup.  Please advise, thanks.
