Here’s the breakdown of the model number, the # 1 is very important to keep clean it's a very fine filter and grabs all the food particles.

Not cleaning dishes, food particles and slime remaining on dishes. No rinsing clean. Had the machine for 5 years, never cleaned the filter. Worked properly until last week.

There's a good chance its only the # 1 in the breakdown I sent you also clean in front of the door food always collects at the location, also make sure you turn the kitchen sink on first to get steaming water before you start up the unit.

How do you get #1 off? I unscrewed the (3) screws but nothing budges. Looks like it should twist off.

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
It lifts off with the three screws out, if the screen is dirty clean it at the top with a soft brush you might not have to remove the screen.
