disassemble the top of the dishwasher pump, remove the bottom spray arm and remove the screws on the top of the pump housing this will get you started

YOUR MAN WAS OF ABSOLUTLY NO HELP IN SOLVING MY PROBLEM. I ENDED UP CALLING SEARS AND THEY SENT A TECH OUT. YOUR MAN SAID TO TAKE THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TURN IN ON IT'S BACK AND I COULD ACCESS THE PUMP. THE TECH SAID THIS WAS NOT TRUE. YOU CAN ACCESS THE PUMP FROM THE INSIDE OF THE DISHWASHER. IT IS APPARENT TO ME THAT YOUR TECH HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE MACHINE. AS IT TURNED OUT, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE DISHWASHER. IT HAD A KINK IN THE DISCHARGE HOSE.....P

I have the same model -- and USED to have the same problem!
We tried lots of things (bleach in the water, etc.). . . . and finally discovered it was a simple, standard concern. The drain tube from the dishwasher to the sink pipe was clogged with grease (looked like lard).
The way i knew it was clogged is that I disconnected the tube from the sink pipe, and tried to blow through the tube. It wouldn't let any air get through.
So once the dishwasher was empty of water (i removed the tube, drained into a big pan, and bailed a lot), we disconnected both ends of the tube.
With the tube in a trash bucket, I blew from one end (cleaned it off a bit first), and the "lard" came out. Drains beautifully now -- and did not require a plumber.
If you do this, be SURE you place the tube back ON the fittings EXACTLY in the same position and shape as before. This makes there are no new kinks or bends introduced into your drain tube.
Hope this helps.

Take thre drain hose off from disposal. Pour hot water down the hose until full. Cover end with hand. Press cancel/drain while holding hand over hose - over bucket. That may unstick checkvalve balls and or fix air lock. I have to do that every 6 months or so. Started happening 1 month out of warranty. Go figure. Not a fix - just a work-around...
