Dishwasher no longer drains, and does not always shut off at the end of the cycle. I have used a shop vac to drain the water, disassembled the filters and removed the lid that is held down with torx screws. The impeller seems to be intact with no debris. I also disconnected the drain hose and used the shop vac to clear the line...there was nothing in it, either, and I can feel the air moving in the dw. I did turn the small screw in the center under the kickplate (the adjuster socket shown above), just to see what it does. Couldn't tell what it did, but also now can't tell if it's in the right position. Any thoughts on where it should be, and what I should check next. Forgot to mention that the machine makes a lot of noise -- it sounds like it's grinding something up -- when it's in "drain", which is why I thought there must be something in the impeller.
ANSWER Hello Jay. If the hoses are clear, and the unit does not drain, you will need to replace the drain pump 167082. The adjuster socket 00165329 raises and lowers the back leveling legs on the dishwasher. Hope this helps.
