Dishwasher does not drain. Cannot hear pump running,. Pump works on washing cycle.
Answer Hello Geno. You need to test for power coming to the drain pump. If there is power there, and the unit does not run, you will need to order and replace the drain pump on the unit. This model has 2 pumps. A circulation and a drain pump.
My dishwasher fills ok, pumps out ok, but does not pump/spray to wash the dishes no matter what cycle is chosen. A buzzing noise can be heard in the area of the control knob. Do you think this is a bad timer or is there a relay somewhere?
Answer Hello J.H.,
This sounds like a bad circulation pump. It could be the timer, but if you test for voltage at the motor, you can easily isolate it. If you have voltage at the circulation motor, the motor has failed. If you no voltage at the circulation pump, you have a bad timer.
My dishwasher makes a buzzing sound and no water is going into it. We have check all the hoses and they are clear. Could it be the pump?
Answer Hello Jean. If the buzzing is coming from the water valve, and not water is coming into the unit, then you will need to replace the water valve 154637401 on the unit. Hope this helps.
In previous conversations told to replace timer knob and timer. Ordered and replaced parts. Unit still runs for 2 hours and still not on drying cycle. Helped dial move along to get to next cycle. What could be problem?
Answer Hello Arlen. Make sure the water is hot at the sink before starting the dishwasher. Also, as for the heating issue, test the thermostat 154290204 and the heater 154665201. They should read closed for continuity. If one of these are bad, it can cause the unit to run for longer periods of time. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
When the dishwasher is changing cycles, it is rattling and struggling to get to the next cycle, timer?
Answer Hello Jim. Is the noise coming from the timer? If so, it sounds like the timer is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
