Default Having trouble getting to chopper
Model Number: DU1050XTPSO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

My upper spray arm is not rotating and thanks to what I've learned from this sight it's most likely a clog somewhere. I want to get to the chopper to see if it's full of stuff but I'm having difficulty prying open the protective cover. I actually broke the tab!! If that's not the culprit the next area to look at is the inlet hose.

1. Does anyone have any tips as to how I get this sucker open?
2. Am I on the right track with my thinking?

Thanks in advance,
BC

Thanks for the tech sheets...I finally got the protective cover off only to find that the blade has completely sheered off the chopper assembly. It was lodged underneath. I went ahead and cleaned the screen and now need to order a new chopper and check valve. How does the screen come out? I see two notches in the screen which line up with the housing but it doesn't want to come out and when I try to push in on the spring I get nothing. Any ideas?

Gene,

Thanks so much for the useful information. I was able to finally get it to pop off. Now I'm faced with a chopper blade that completely sheered off from the assembly.I'm off to order a new chopper and check valve. How does this one come out? I tried lining up the notches in the screen with the housing and lifting and got nowhere...ditto when I tried to push on the spring behind the screen. Please advise.

BC

You can find the instructions in the tech sheet provided by denman. A small pliers might help.
