Dishwasher -- food trap -- I have a round top on the bottom

Customer Question

Dishwasher -- food trap -- I have a round top on the bottom right of the dishwasher. I cannot figure out how to get this lid off and clean the trap. I have tried pulling and pushing on the top, turning it clockwise and counterclockwise but it just spins and doesn't disengage the top to get at the trap. The user instructions aren't specific enough to tell me what I am missing. Advice??
Thanks, Carolyn

Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? And can you take a picture to point out what trap you are talking about? There is a paper clip above the text box which you can click on to attach a picture so I can see it.
