My Repair & Advice
After seeing that the problem was either the pump or circuit board, I watched the appliance pro video on how to fix the problem. It looked easy enough so I ordered the pump. It was here in 2 days. Oh, and I had called the parts department to make sure I ordered the correct one, very nice customer service. Well the video was correct, it took 5 minutes to replace the pump, unfortunately it took 2 hours to get the dishwasher out of the cabinet! No fault of Appliance Pro, but when the plumber put it in originally, he put the water value in backwards, then we had to disconnect the electricity and drain hose all in about 2 inches of space! After installing the pump and another 1 hour of reconnection, we tested...........still wouldn't drain!!! Went back and started at the beginning. Read blog and looked at video again. There was a little blurt about disconnecting the drain hose and running a cycle. Tried that and low and behold......drained perfectly! Crawled under the house and there it was....a clogged drain hose! Snaked it out and works perfectly!!! My advice? Do the easy stuff first, it's usually something simple!
