What would cause the water not to pump up to top arm of the unit.
Answer Hello Andy. This could be several things, but the most common is a bad water valve not letting in enough water to circulate properly. If the water level is good, then check for clogged spray arms, filters, and a bad motor.
The water does not drain. I cleaned the filter. Still doesn't drain.
Answer Hello Bob. If there is power to the pump, and the hoses are not clogged and the unit runs. You will need to order and replace the drain pump 5304475805 on the unit.
The water does not pump out of the tub on any cycle. Is there a way to test the pump separate from the control panel? Is it line voltage 120V? I don't think it's an issue with the timer control, but I just want to be sure it's the pump before purchasing.
Second question: the handle which engages the micro switch when the door is shut is not compressing the switch contact to activate the control timer. Is it possible the handle has become distorted, or has the switch moved enough to not allow the handle to make contact? Is there any adjustment in the door handle assy to correct this issue?
Answer Don, Yes, the drain pump motor will operate on 120 VAC. you can use a 120 vac test cord, and attach the clips and ground wire to the motor terminals and plug the cord into a stsandard 120 VAC outlet, and the motor should run. You're also going to need to look inside the pump, and use a tool, to check the impeller vanes, they could be damaged, and the motor may run, but can't move the water, because the vanes are "shot". The door latch/switch assembly, has no adjustments, chancwes are one of the retainer pins holding the door switch to the assembly is distorted or broken and the assembly will have to be replaced.
