How do I check to tell if I have a bad pump Part # AP5650269 The water does not have enough force to drain out into the drain pipe, but when i remove it and put it into a bucket on the floor the water drains. I already checked all possible places for clogs and removed the pump to check if it is bad. I am getting a reading of 12.85 Ohms when checking the pump is that correct? I saw a video on youtube showing only 0.15 Ohms when tested and that was on a new pump similar but not exactly the same as mine. The washer has been working for 2 years so its not the height of the drain on my wall, is it possible the pump is weak?
The drain pump reading should be between 10.5 and 14 ohms resistance. This would indicate a good drain pump on your unit as far as the motor is concerned. You will want to check the impeller to make sure that it is not damaged or bad. Make sure that it does turn and not seized up.
