The metal band between the control knobs and the oven doors is actually a draw - pull out and voila 'grease trap' / crumb /spill tray

Hi footitrncs- Here are some generics instructions on how to clean out the pump. I advise to please be very cautions.

1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

5. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

6. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

However, if you are looking to replace the pump completely, I strongly suggest consulting a professional for further assistance due to the difficult location of the pump itself.

I have a double sink with the ACE 2000 garbage disposal on the right side. The disposal will not drain. The disposal drain runs straight to the down pipe for the left sink. That pipe goes straight into...

If it is grease you could boil a pan of water and pour down the disposer but you would only move the grease further down the line to cool and possibly cause a bigger problem. Disposers are far too easy to remove to take that chance. There is a bolt or screw located on the disposer where the horizontal line hooks to it. Simply remove that bolt or screw and then spin the attachment ring directly beneath the bottom of the sink and the disposer will come right out and you can look right into it to see what is causing the restriction. Be sure to unplug the disposer from the electrical outlet before you start. If there is water in the sink where the disposer is located, dip it out and pour it down the other side before you start too, it will reduce the mess you are going to make.

How do i service the grease trap without calling a service man to do it?

Be clear that an in-ground grease interceptor cannot be cleaned without a grease trap pumping company. We are referring to a metal grease trap that sits under the 3-compartment sink. Yes it can be cleaned by anyone (crazy enough). I still suggest a professional service company perform the task. I have full directions or instructions now at . Old clothes and a mask are a must.

Water is not spraying well while dishwasher is running. We had a service call and the technician cleaned a trap clogged with food near the water pump. I think the same thing happened but do not know how to...

You have to remove the sprayer arm, it's cover, and the cover underneath that located on the bottom of the dishwasher, inside the dishwasher. If you find a large amount of grease/food under these covers then you are not rinsing your dishes enough before placing in the washer.
The disposal unit in these units are nothing more than a cheap metal blade spinning over a metal grate. Anything tougher than a piece of cake and it's frosting runs the risk of breaking the gears that drives this.
Clean all the food/grease that you can access. Be careful while removing the gunk, I have found glass shards from broken dishes. Locate the disposal impeller and screen. It can be removed. Inspect it for damage and reinstall after cleaning.
Your water flow can be restricted if this is plugged.

Do Whirlpool dishwashers have a food/grease trap that needs cleaning? If so, how is it accessed?

No there is no grease trap on any dishwashers. Are you having a problem with your machine?

There is an "anti-trap" feature in your sunroof motor that will prevent the sunroof from closing if it "thinks" somthing is in the way.
The next time you have the problem, try helping the window by pushing it forward when you activate the close switch. This will tell us if the "anti-trap" is active. By helping the motor, it takes away some of the resistance and the motor thinks its OK to close.
If it works with your help, try cleaning the glass rails, sand, dirt, leaves and debris add friction to the system and cause a "false anti-trap".
Once cleaned apply the approved lubricant and work the window several times to spread the grease up and down the track.
Good luck and let me know.
