It runs for 8 minutes seems like it wants to drain but throws up OE code on the display.I checked the drain hose, no blockage at garbage disposal.How do I know if I have a bad pump ?
The OE is a drain error and you will want to make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or blocked. Check to make sure the wiring is not corroded and has good connection. Check the drain outlet of the sump to make sure that it is not blocked. If these check ok then the issue is in the drain pump/motor or circuit. Measure that electric resistance of the drain motor which would be between 20 and 40 ohms. Replace the drain motor.
Hi. My dishwasher is continually draining. If I add water once it stars it usually works just fine...but not enough water is allowed to collect at the bottom I think to activate the pump. Do I need a new circulation pump if drain line is elevated and ok?
You will want to check the guide assembly on the side of the dishwasher to make sure that there is not clogging and that the impeller is working properly. The circulation pump would not cause the unit to continually drain while filling but the guide assembly or the drain not being installed properly would cause this issue.
