For Frigidaire Circulation Pump Motor Kit (Part Number: AP5272390)

Two questions: First, my dishwasher's circulation pump does not turn on while cycling. I tested the connection to the motor and get 120V... but not just when the pump should be cycling, all the time, even when the dishwasher is idle. I'm ignorant as to what dictates the running of the motor, whether the control panel supplied power when needed or if it has something to do with the Hall Sensor attached to the motor. If I jump the Hall sensor, the motor runs. So I would assume it is the pump/motor/hall sensor assembly, however it bothers me that I get 120V from the control panel even when the dishwasher is idle (not cycling under any program). I'm not sure whether to replace the control panel, the pump/motor/hall sensor assembly or both (which seems unlikely). The second question is my model number is FDB4050LHS1, yet the motor p/n is 154683201. The manufacturer's p/n listed on this website for my model number is 154859201, will this one work? Thanks

Brad for Model Number FDB4050LHS1

ANSWER Brad, You do have the correct part number for the motor assembly (154859201) 154859201 the manufacturer has "substituted the original motor to and updated motor assembly,so you're OK, if you need it. At this point, it sounds more like a faulty control board 154757002, you're not completing the neutral circuit from the control board to the motor. Recheck and make sure the power supply in the junction box behind the kickplate is proper(L1-120 VAC is attached to the Black wire and neutral no VAC is attached to the white wire, and ground to the chassis) and that the connections are good and tight. Thanks
