Hello. Slow and no draining of dishwasher. Checked drain hose. Ok. I tested drain pump and seemed to work fine when connected it directly to 120 power. I took off plastic part of drain pump and now it continues to leak. So, I'm thinking of just ordering a new pump and seeing if that takes care of slow drain. Is that part supposed to come off pump to check for clogs in drain pump?
You are on the right track of replacing pump assembly on unit. It is possible for the pump to pump some of the water out but still be bad and not pump all of it out. Since you have already checked for clogs then the pump would need to be replaced.
