If you could help, my Hotpoint Dishwasher isn't draining... washes, fills, etc. Purchased a drain solenoid from you, after first attempt at troublshooting, that isn't the problem. The Flapper in the pump housing AP2039468 has the little black insert. Checking the sump, AP4300603 I see the little ball AP5645087 is way down at the bottom on the side closest to the motor. I'm assuming, the motor is okay, since it sprays, the impeller spins with the motor shaft... that must be okay, the flapper in the pump housing is a little stiff, but is being activated by the solenoid... so, does that leave the ball out of place? The q/a I looked at for the part mentions right/left orientation of the ball, but I'm not sure of inlet or where it goes. Thanks!
ANSWER Hello John. Check and make sure the hose is not clogged and if not, replace the motor. The ball does not affect it.
