water does not pump out dish washer smells bad solenoid does kick in can turn pump impeller by hand found nothing on screen at pump
Answer W.R., Did you disconnect and check the drain hose for a clog or kink ? You may need to remove the motor and pump assembly and check for a damaged impeller WD19X10032 and varify that the interior flapper in the pump, opens and closes when the solenoid linkage is activated and deactivated.
Hey guy's , I have a G.E dishwasher ( pot scrubber 600 ) about 10 years old , and lately the dishes on the top rack have not been getting clean ,I've even tried washing dishes with the bottom rack empty and only the top rack loaded , now I've even fooled the door latch and looked in side the washer while it was running and verified the pop up tube is coming up and water is pumping out but not sure if the water pressure is enough . Thanks .
Answer Steve, The first thing to check, is the water level, and water temp. Start the dishwasher and let it run 3 to 5 minutes, unlatch the door and remove the lower rack,use a ruler and measure the depth of the water just in front of the lower sprayarm. The water depth should measure 5/8 to 1 inch in depth. Then check the water temperature, it needs to be at least 120 dgrs.F. on the first fill. There has to be enough hot water in the base of the tub to pressurize and move the water up to the upper sprayarm components. If all's OK, then remove the pump assembly and check the sump and impeller WD19X10032 for blockage or damage.
This is the correct model number for my previous question....Pump leaks water when running. Will the impeller kit fix the problem? THANKS
Answer Bryan, We're going to presume the pump leak is between the outer pump housing and the motor, in which case, Yes, the impeller / pump seal kit WD19X10032 will solve the issue. " Once you remove the motor and sump assembly from the dishwasher, its a matter of unscrewing the chopper blade, grate, ring etc. Then separate the sump housing from the motor and press the... more shaft seal out of the housing. Here's some help " Hold motor shaft, remove old cutter.Remove the grater by rotating clockwise. Remove wear ring and wear ring retainer. Hold the motor shaft and remove the old impeller by turning clockwise. Separate motor from pump by removing four(4) screws. Remove protective sleeve from the motor shaft if present, and discard. Press seal out of the pump housing from motor side of pump and discard. Install new seal assembly by pressing seal firmly in pump housing seal pocket. Make sure seal is completely seated in the pump housing pocket." Thanks
