Question about Whirlpool GU1200XTLS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
I got a screw stuck in the bigger of the two holes behind the chopper blade. When I look down in the hole I can see the screw but cannot reach it with anything. IT looks like there is a second chopper blade in the housing and the screw is wedged between that and the housing. How do I get the entire assembly out like you did in the picture?

Catriver, Great advise and excellent instructions. I had the exact same problem. Once I removed the chopper housing, I noticed the chipper rotated a little snug then got tougher. A couple turns clockwise and counter clockwise and free as a bird.Maybe somenting gooey was stuck.
One thing I did notice after the repair, when motor started, it was growling but quickly stopped. Could this mean the motor assembly is starting to wear??? Is this an easy fix?? What parts are needed and any idea on the approximate expense???
Considering all I have read on the poor service of the Kenmore, I'll look elsewhere next time. 2 years 2 months and I have this problem. Go figure. Thanks for all your help!!!!

Bert, to get to the sump and chopper assy. First remove the lower spray arm by holding the top tab and turning the spray arm off. Next grab a hold of the rear feed and turn it to the right until it unsnaps from the rear feed assy. Now you remove the filter and accumulator assy. It has torq screws, remove and lift off. Now the chopper cover will be on the left, one torq screw and it will lift off exposing the chopper blade. This is probably where it's jammed. Look at the attached pics. It will help you. Catriver.
