Need to check the pump on my KitchenAid KUDS01IJBL Dishwasher (about 3 years old).  It fills and pumps out but doesn't pump any water on the wash cycle.  After removing the 3 Torx screws I'm stumped.  The filter at the top of the pump assembly looks like it should turn a bit and come right off, but it refuses to budge.  The plastic tube to the upper spray arms might be holding it, but I can't see how to remove that either.  The "mini-manual" under the toe kick got lost when some unmentionable person tucked it away, and it's not on the KitchenAid website, so I have no guidance at all.

Thanks in advance !  Karl

Just testing it now.  There was a piece of dish stuck in the chopper - I removed it and all seemed OK.  But the pump is still just humming so I guess there's something else jammed in there.

Suggestions ?

Thanks!  Karl

That's the wash motor that's not working.  And it's not jammed, it's fried.  Been an epidemic of these.  You need a new motor/pump assembly:

Just a follow up question about the servicematters site referral. Is there a site like this for GE or Maytag appliances?
