Purchased DW 1 1/2 yrs ago. There is standing water(alot) in bottom. Repairman said pump is pumping water out but not very much. He said I needed a new pump and it would cost me $170. The pump you have listed is only $58 so I don't know why he is charging $170. Do I need a new motor as well? Does this sound right? Do you think I just need part #AP3872950 or do you think it might be something else? Also, what does ASM stand for?
ANSWER Hi Tim. Look at a couple of things first. Use a bucket to put the drain hose in and make sure the hose or the sink itself is not clogged. Place the drain hose as far up at the rear top of the inside cabinet. It has to be looped and secured to the cabinet , then taught to the sink drain. This will create a "p-trap" for the sink stink and the drain water from backing up in the tub. Explains all this in the installation manual. Unhook the intake and drain hose at the pump and see if they are clogged. Is the impeller turning on the pump shaft stripped? Make sure the drain pump output check valve is inside, not damaged. This part # is WD01X10175. Is the pump getting 120vac from the board (Humming or check coils for 35 ohms), not open. Pump part # is WD26X10043. Remove top motor parts and see if any filters are clogged. Thank you.
