That clear cover (sometimes called the inner door screen) is very important.
It protects the metal mesh / screen from debris and corrosion. The metal screen allows you to see "what's cooking" (*grin*) but prevents microwaves from leaking out of the door due to the precise size of the openings in the mesh.
If the mesh rusts or gets grease or food on it, it can arc, and this can damage the screen, then microwaves can leak, causing a burn or fire hazard. (No "radiation" threat, though)
If no arcing or other damage has occurred yet, you can clean the area squeaky with alcohol, then dry it completely and use the smallest possible amount of clear Scotch tape or packing tape to cover the tear and make sure it's flat.
If this fix doesn't work, or it's too big an area, you will have to replace the sheet, which can be ordered.
You'd have to heat it up with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly, then clean the area with something like acetone, then peel and stick the new one.
If you need to or prefer to order it, I would need your brand and model number to help you further.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: The dishwasher will not drain
Can you here it drain pump when it time to drain. If you do not Then your pump is bad or the control board is not sending a signal to the pump. To see if you get a signal to the pump you can use a electrical tester to see if you get current.

Check for a leaking O-ring/Washer/Seal and replace. Sometimes the internal parts of the sprayer head will wear out. Replacement sprayer heads can be obtained from your local hardware store.
I'll look forward to hearing back from you. :-)

Yes it is stuck in the discharge pump and your arm removal is the wrong direction.
Here is a parts and price catalog.
Look at the "pump and motor parts" diagram. Open it in its own page for best viewing.
The discharge pump is on top of the motor and needs to be disassembled from the bottom. Looks like a big job unless you want to follow this diagram to instruct you how to remove it. You may have a damaged impeller when you get it open, either way you will still need a gasket part when you put it back together or it might leak. Hope you forgive her first then good luck with your effort.

if this is the only place in the home where water pressure is a problem then the lines may very well be the issue. if you have low pressure throughout the home then there may be a problem with the main water supply in the home. if the lines are galvanized pipe then they may be restricted due to rust or other deposits forming on the inside of the pipe. unless you are good at plumbing then i would suggest having a professional come out and assess the condition of the lines.

Empty the dishwasher and remove the dish racks so that you can easily locate the drain inside your dishwasher. The drain is under a drain grate, usually at the back of the dishwasher.
Remove the drain grate by either popping the grate out, or by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. Different types of dishwashers will have different options.
Use the soapy water and the toothbrush or scrub brush to clean inside the drain area and the grate.
Rinse the drain area with clean water. Then replace the drain grate.
Pour ½ cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar into the drain (in that order). The mixture will bubble. This will clean the drain and the drain hose.
Wait until the vinegar/baking soda mixture has stopped bubbling. Then pour 1 cup of bleach into your detergent dispenser. Replace the dish racks and run the empty dishwasher on a regular cycle. This will clean the entire machine
