My Maytag dishwasher works well but it does not drain water. i checked the bottom and drain pipe, nothing is clogged. I also changed Wash Impeller Assembly. Dishwasher does not drain.

Manoj for Model Number mdb8600awq

ANSWER Manoj, You do have a separate drain pump 6-917641 located in the right rear area of the tub. you didn't mention if you could hear the motor running or not, but the test isn't that hard to perform. The test information is listed on the tech data information sheet located in a plastic bag taped to the backside of the kickplate panel. Drain Pump The Drain Pump will drain water from the Dishwasher in various cycles. If a failure is suspected, the entire Pump Assembly needs to be replaced. 1. Disconnect power to the machine. 2. Remove Support and Toe Panel. 3. Disconnect lead wire from Pump Assembly. 4. Disconnect drain hose from Pump Assembly. 5. Remove Torx™ screw through bushing in Pump Mounting Plate.6. Rotate Pump Assembly to unlock from Tub. It can be difficult, but in most cases you can access and remove the drain pump from the dishwasher without removing the dishwasher from the cabinet.
