For the mentioned part how I can test the electrical motor before I install new impeller kit part # 167085 and seal kit part # 171598?
You will want to turn the unit on and let it fill with water. Let the unit cycle until the motor should be on and then check with a voltage indicator at the control board on the wire that goes to the motor to see if there is power. If there is power but the motor is not turning then the motor is bad.
Dishwasher not working and capacitor (shinny aluminum cylinder) hooked to side of pump/motor getting hot. Does this sound like a bad capacitor or a bad pump/motor?
Answer Hello Chazz,
The capacitor should never be hot and more than likely has an internal short. You will need to replace the circulation pump 00442548 as the capacitor does not come as an individual part.
