I have a 7-8 year old whirlpool dishwasher. I need to remove

Customer Question

I have a 7-8 year old whirlpool dishwasher. I need to remove and clean the food strainer at the bottom rear of the dishwasher. I have tried to pull it out but it doesn't move. I don't want to break it. Is it pressed in or is there a screw that I am not seeing.

Thanks,
Bill

Please see the picture below for the instructions to access the collector chamber. The screen is secured by screws that you need to access from the bottom of the unit.
