Thanks for the picture. The model number that you provided appears to be slightly off (by 1 letter). Based on your picture, I suspect that you have Whirlpool dishwasher model DU890SWLU0 (the second letter is probably a U instead of an L).

The grate that you are describing is not removable from inside the dishwasher. I recommend that you clean it from the top. You should be able to pick up the debris on the top of that grate using a paper towel. You can use a shop vacuum or other methods if you want to.

That grate is part of the soil settler system. To remove that grate, you need to shut off the breaker for the dishwasher and pull it out from under the counter. I don't recommend that you do that unless you are having a problem with the dishwasher draining properly.

If the dishwasher is not draining, you could have a clog in the soil settler system. I provided information on that system in the images below. The 4th image shows how to remove that component. You need to shut off the circuit breaker and the water supply then pull the dishwasher out from under the counter to access the soil settler. You will normally find mounting clips that are screwed to the underside of the counter securing the dishwasher in place. Remove the bottom service panel and those clips then carefully pull the dishwasher out (with the circuit breaker shut off and the water supply turned off). Follow the steps in that last image to remove the soil settler assembly. After you remove that assembly, you can remove the grate if necessary. I don't think that you will need to remove the grate but you can if it is damaged. According to your image, it does not appear that the grate is damaged. Here is a link for an image of the part on the Repair Clinic.com website: Cap, Lid or Cover .

This information should help you with your dishwasher problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
