Question Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain

Portable Whirlpool Dishwasher 14 years old.

How do I remove the drain impeller to see if there is anything clogging it? I have removed the wash spray arm and the wash impeller, the macerator and the macerator spring. I have also checked that nothing is blocking the drain hose.

How do I, or can I remove the drain impeller? There doesn't seem to be any screws holding it in - does it just lift off?
