Dishwasher machine won't drain. I've checked for blockages and do not detect any. There is a grinding sound coming from the pump area when it should be draining and the water only comes about 3/4 up the semi clear tube to the vent on my sink to be re-routed to the dishwasher. Does it sound like I need to replace the drain pump?
ANSWER Hello. It sounds like something is either stuck inside the pump or the pump has gone bad. You can look for an obstruction inside the pump 5304463777 and see if that helps. If nothing is inside of the pump, you will have to replace it. Thanks!
