Water is remaining in the dishwasher and I've checked the drain pump impeller for debris. There are no obstructions and the impeller spins freely. I also hear the drain pump motor activate but no water discharges. I don't hear the expected impeller noise, just a hum. The discharge line is clear and I've verified no blockages. Does this sound like a failed drain pump or are there additional items to check before ordering a replacement?
ANSWER Hello Al,
This would be a bad pump 00167082. If the impeller spins freely then the pump has failed, there should be resistance to the impeller like a magnet pulling it back as it spins.
