cleaned out the entire system down to the chopper inlet, but the dishwasher is still whining. The rest of the system is under the machine and it looks brand new under there : no leaks, no rust, etc. What now?

You need a torx head wrench. Hardware store about $15.00 for a full multi set. The second screw that covers the chopper is one size down from the upper's.

does removing the 4 screws in the soil accumulator require a special type of screw driver. Mine don't seem to fit. Are these screw drivers available at hardware stores or is it a Sears-only screw driver.

I referred to your profile and see that you have Kenmore dishwasher model 665.16033400.

The image below shows how to access the filter and sump area of your dishwasher.

Turn off the breaker to completely disconnect electrical power before beginning this procedure.

Use the procedure below to disassemble the dishwasher to access the accumulator filter at the bottom of the dishwasher tub. The entire procedure below provides access to the chopper assembly in the sump. You may not need to precede this far in the process. Only go as far as needed to access and clean the filter that you are referring to in your question.

If you need more help (or you are trying to get to a different component), resubmit your question with additional details.
