I'm at an elderly friend's home. She noticed water dripping

Customer Question

I'm at an elderly friend's home. She noticed water dripping from the mainfloor when she was in the basement. I tracked it back to her dishwasher that didn't drain out. I don't dare start a new cycle in her washer, so I'm trying to figure out how to clean the filter, abnormal I can't find anyone who knows how. It's a maytag model DWU5902AAE.
Can you help?

To clean the filter you need to unscrew the center piece on the top washer are. It is a large flat round plastic washer. Once that is off lift the wash arm off, then remove the 8 screws around the round upper bell hub and the filter is right below that once off, it is a large round filter to get out and clean.
