Dishwasher part found in filter assembly

Samsung dw80j755us with Waterwall dishwasher was not draining. 


Removed exterior filter, extra water and internal filter, cleaned them up but also found a random plastic piece laying in the filter. Unsure it's part of the filter itself or part of the baskets/something else. 

Can anyone identify this piece / where it should live? it's about an 1.5 inches long. I don't see any obvious places for it in the filter nor on any part listings.

Hi there, Thanks so much for reaching out about this. I can definitely understand the concern of finding an unattached part inside your dishwasher. Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm if, or where, this part may have come from based on the photo and description. At this point, we would recommend having a technician come out and inspect the unit to make a determination. There are a few options here we can take based on your warranty status. 
If you’re in the one-year manufacturer’s warranty, please gather together the full model and serial number of your unit, and have ready your name, street address, 2 phone numbers (Best contact, alternative number), email, and place of purchase.
