This model has a chopper blade, that if it breaks, the screen clogs and the pump moves very little water. It is part #6 on this link, and located under the sprayarm, filter and chopper cover. AND MOTOR PARTS&documentId=W0702221&blt=06

is this part accessable in front of the pump or under the accumulator in the tub
Under the sprayarm. You need to remove the sprayarm , then the manifold for upper spray, then there are 4 T20 torx screws, then there are 1 or 2 T15 torx screws on the cover for the chopper blade.
