Major Appliances/Whirlpool dishwasher wont drain fast enough

Question
QUESTION: Hello! I have a Whirlpool DU930 Dishwasher.We are having a problem with it not draining fast enough and overflowing the bottom pan and leaking on the floor.If I run the "drain" cycle it will empty slowly.Something is obviously plugged up I think.Any suggestions on what to check first(and second)? Thanks Mark

ANSWER: The model number is to short for me to identify your correct model of dishwasher.  A digit or so can make a difference in the pump/motor assembly in your unit.  Please supply an accurate model number and I will supply you good advice....to repair your unit.

QUESTION: Hello! The complete model # is DU930PWSSO Ser# FU2008430 Thank you!

Answer
Thanks for the model number.  On your model the drain pump is built into the circulating pump.  You will have to remove the lower dish rack and begin disassembling the unit  from this area.  You will have to go all the way down to the drain impeller to check and see if it is stripped.  You up for that?  If so, let me know and I will instruct further....  Figure about an hour....
