How do I remove the drain pump in order to check proper function?
Answer Hello Keni. You need to uninstall the dishwasher and lay it on it's back. Then remove the clamp securing the motor to the tub. Then you can remove the motor from the sump from the unit.
My dishwasher won't drain. How can I tell if I have a bad pump? I removed the pump. The impeller seems to operate correctly.
Answer Hello Kin,
If you can put 120Vac on the pump and it runs, you will either have a clog in the drain or a screen or you have a bad control that is not sending voltage to the drain pump. We could assist further in the diagnosis with the model number from the units' I.D. tag.
