modalController.create() throws No component factory found for [object Object]

Hey, in a nutshell i am trying to run this on click:

public async showModal(paycheck): Promise<void> {
        const modal = await this.modalCtrl.create({
            component: ModalPaycheckComponent
        });
        await modal.present();
    }

However i get this error:

ERROR Error: "Uncaught (in promise): Error: No component factory found for [object Object]. Did you add it to @NgModule.entryComponents?

So i have read a lot of forum topics regarding this specific error. However none has solved the issue for me and i am way too new to module concept to solve this myself in fairly quick amount of time.

Here is the involved page and component i have defined the entryComponent in both places, not really sure why as i dont think it should be needed. Can anybody spot something wrong with this?
