Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
I checked. There is no sheet of any kind inside or below the door of my Whirlpool dishwasher.
In any case, opening up the non-washing washer revealed that the filter behind the chopper assembly was clogged with food. I cleaned it off, put the thing back together again, and it was washing dishes again, until about three days later. I took it apart again and found food clogging the filter behind the chopper. I thought the chopper wasn't chopping, so I replaced it. It was around $16. About three days later it wasn't washing dishes again.
Further examination (dis-assembly of the sump motor and impeller) revealed that the end of the impeller (which is designed to engage the chopper) had broken off, thus the chopper no longer spins with the sump motor. The impeller costs about $20 and isn't too hard to replace, as long and you keep track of what you've dis-assembled and put it back together in reverse order.
On whirlpool dishwashers, the sump motor drives the impeller (it's connected via the threaded end of the motor shaft) and the impeller, in turn, drives the chopper. The chopper you can replace from inside the tub, without removing the dishwasher from its home or taking apart the sump assembly. But save your $16, as that probably isn't what is wrong... The impeller, being screwed onto the motor shaft, requires complete removal of the dishwasher so that you can completely remove the base assembly that holds the motor assembly.
If you have a GU-series whirlpool washer, the tech manual can be found here:
It has complete instructions for the replacement of every part.

I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not drain
Here is a link with exploded views and parts lists for your dishwasher for reference however based on your description, have you made sure you don't a blockage in the check valve? That's part of the pump drain assembly. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
You may also have a problem with the pump itself so the documentation on the website will help you evaluate that.
In many instances, its just a blockage of food byproducts inline with the drain system so chances are thats what you will find.. Good Luck on that.
