I have a kitchen...

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher purchased in 2013. The top spinner is not working and I need to clean the filter. It is not cleaning well, which I think has to do with dirty filter. Thoughts?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

5 years old, model # W10502127A. Might be 6A

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes I own a construction company and I am very capable

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No that's it Im told the filters may be the main problem

The number you have listed is a part number. Do you have a full model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the TUB (not the door itself) and can be seen if you open the door so that I can better assist you?

This can be caused for two reasons, either you have a bad circulation pump and motor assembly or your disposal screen is getting clogged and needs to be cleaned out. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to clean out your disposal and take your pump apart.

If you clean out the screen and it still won't wash the dishes properly, then the entire circulation pump and motor assembly will need to be ordered and replaced, and that's a $150 part. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to replace the pump and motor if you wanted to do that
