My dishwasher wont drain and I dont hear the pump. When I checked out the pump, it was extremely hot. Is it bad?
You will want to pull the drain pump and make sure that there is nothing clogged in the drain which would cause the unit to not drain. If it is clear then the drain pump will most likely be faulty.

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.
