If the model number is correct, this model dishwasher has a cutter blade that is used to beat or chop up coarse food deposits into fine particles to make it easier for the dishwasher to drain them. If you go to pcappliancerepair.com and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" section, you will see it listed as item 18 in the parts index.

With that said, these chopping assemblies are NOT garbage disposals! This does not imply that you can place anything in the dishwasher and expect it to be chopped and disposed of. There are certain things that should NOT be placed in a dishwasher. Here's a short list of items that I have found that will clog the pump and drain assemblies:

celery
meat gristle
water chestnuts
lima beans
chicken bones
popcorn kernels
broken glass
toothpicks
match sticks
birthday candles

Basically, anything that is stringy (like celery), has waxy skins (like certain beans), or otherwise cannot be chopped (like meat gristle and popcorn kernels) should not be placed in a dishwasher. Always refer to the owner/operator's manual for clarification.

If you have any additional questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Kitchen aid food processors 's chopping blade gets stuck . Very hard to take it out


The shaft sleeve (the one on the motor shaft) is likely damaged. The correct solution is a new shaft sleeve and chopping blade. If you do not replace them both together the one you do not replace will damage the other one again.

Motor spins but blade doesn't


If there is a shaft sleeve available from Kitchen Aid you will need to replace that and most likely the chopping blade if there is any damage up inside it.

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.
