I need a drain motor replacement. What part number should I order?
Answer Hello, the drain motor suggested by the manufacturer is part number 642239. Thanks!
The drain pump makes a lot of noise however if I put pressure on the housing its quit. I noticed the impeller has some play in and out. I also noticed the motor housing in plastic has water in it. Is the water the reason its making noise and vibrating?
Answer Hi. By all means if the pump part # 642239 armature is water logged then replace it since it is running shorted. The water got past the internal impeller housing into the motor itself. All the reason for the unnatural noise. Make sure the drain hose under the sink is looped and mounted as high to the back of the under counter wall. Forming a P-trap so the sink water does not back up into the pump and dishwasher. Thank You.
