Do you own a steamer basket? (one of those things that you put inside a pot and it has lots of perforated "petals"?)

I can't view the picture. However, if you go to sears parts http://www3.sears.com/ and put in your model number you can view diagrams and part lists for your machine. Or you can go to www.repairclinic.com and view the actual parts for your machine but it won't tell you necessary where it goes. This will only help if the part is from the dishwasher.

Just for the record, the link is better put as:

(embedded spaces in file names can be quite a nuisance)
