The pump will not completely drain the unit, only partially. I want to check the voltage feeding the pump while its draining. Also thought I'd pull wires from motor and connect 120 volts to it and see if if ran (if it takes 120v and not go through a transformer). Thanks so much. David
ANSWER Hello David,
The pumps 154580301 on these are rather prone to failure. Before replacing it though, I would remove the hose from it that comes from the tub and see if it is restricted. While this hose is off, reach inside the pump with a small screwdriver to verify that the impeller is still attached to the motor shaft. This is verified by turning the impeller and if it is attached, you will feel the magnetic field of the motor windings. This all, of course, is with power turned off to the unit. If the unit still doesn't drain after the drain lines are verified, the drain pump should be replaced. This is a 120Vac motor.
