I disassembled the bottom assembly to get to the discharge pump housing, removed it and saw that the disc was detached. I cleaned the assembly and all screens in the sink. The built up soap scum actually needed some scrubbing bubbles cleaner to loosen and soften, then came out with warm water and sprayer in the kitchen sink. I carefully reassembled, being mindful of over-tightening the screws in the plastic parts. Ran a cycle to wash out any remaining soap scum and chemicals and it runs like a champ.
