Dishwasher not working and capacitor (shinny aluminum cylinder) hooked to side of pump/motor getting hot. Does this sound like a bad capacitor or a bad pump/motor?
ANSWER Hello Chazz,
The capacitor should never be hot and more than likely has an internal short. You will need to replace the circulation pump 00442548 as the capacitor does not come as an individual part.
