I am going to replace the pump on this dishwasher. Is it best to take the DW out or replace it by removing the sump. Thank You , Tom
The easiest way to replace the pump is to pull unit out and turn on its back to access the pump. It will give you easier access.
My dishwasher wont drain, no sound from pump? Any ideas?
Answer Hello Steve,
Remove the kick panel and check the wires with a test meter. If there is no voltage, (120Vac), when the unit is supposed to drain, check for voltage at the control board on the same wires. If there is still no voltage there, replace the control 154815601.
If there is voltage at the drain pump when it should be draining, replace the drain pump A00126401.
I have standing water in the DW ,and I was wondering if on my model Dw is their a check value to keep the drain water from coming back into the DW,or should I always run the garage disposal.
Answer Hello Jerry,
You will want to make sure that your pump has not got debris in it causing slow drain. Also check your drain hoses. This is the most common problem of having water standing in the unit. Also double check to make sure that the drain pump impeller is not bad or damaged.
I took the sump housing off my dishwasher while checking for clogs as my dishwasher was not draining properly once out I realized I could of checked for clogs without removing it, however it is off and I can not seem to get the gasket to set correctly when I tighten the bolts on the bottom. Is there a trick to this? Please help I have dishwater hands and would like to get the dishwasher in working order. Thanks in advance for your help.
Answer Brian, The sump 154365902 has a "lip" around the circumference of it. The gasket 154246801 has a recess molded in it that fits over the lip. seat the gasket onto the pump housing first. Before you set the pump into the opening in the tub, apply a thin film of liquid dishwasher rinse agent, or water soluble oil around the opening, then set the pump in the opening. When you tighten the retainers, use a "criss cross" pattern to turn and partially tighten the retainers. Once everything it seated and aligned, finish tightenning the retainer screws.
Frigidaire dishwasher FDB1050req0 runs normal for a few minutes and then starts a loud humming noise. I think the main pump works but when it switches over to the top its making a horrible humming.
Answer Becky, You want to check mand make sure you have the proper amount of water in the bottom of the tub. low water level can and does make a motor run "noisy" and with a split wash system, it's even more prevalent. Check and make sure theres nothing holding the float 154767801 up causing it to open early. Start the dishwasher and let it cycle for 3 to 5 minutes, unlatch the door and remove the lower rack, The water level should be slightly above the filter 154252401 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. If alls OK, you'll need to chrck the filters and the interior pump for deposit build up causing improper water flow and pressure. Thanks
I bought this dishwasher for my son from an individule and it didn't have a drain hose. and i need to see a diagram of how to hook one up. Thanks
Answer Hi James. Since you bought this unit, you probably did not get the installation instructions along with the user guide. The main thing to remember is to drill the 1-3/4" hole in the side wall to get the drain hose into the sink area if you do not already have one. Then after you connect to the drain pump, we will talk about the sink area. Then you need to get 2, - 1/2 " conduit clamps and screws to use on the back inside sink wall. You will form a complete drain loop into the hose and screw/clamp at the highest area behind the sink. Then taught into the sink connection. You will also need 2 clamps part # 5300807813. Thank You.
