I'm getting an E6 alarm and the water is not draining. In hear it trying to start the pump but it stops after a couple of seconds and the E6 alarm comes back. What should I do?
Answer Hello Greg. Check and see if the pump and the drain hose is clogged and needs to be cleaned out. If all is clear and the water is not draining, you will need to order and replace the pump W10428023 on the unit.
Are there plastic parts inside the body of the drain check valve other than the flat round black flap, or is it clear straight through other than this flat black flap?
Answer Hi Issac. Great question. Check valve part # 675238. No other then this flapper it is clear system all throughout the pump assy. Look at the oposing drain hose end to see if there is any restrictions there as well. Thank You.
My dishwasher will not drain. When the pump tries to cut on, it makes a clicking sound once but nothing happens. The drain pump is not activating.
What could be causing this?
Could it be the check valve?
Could it be the motor relay?
Answer Hello Butch. You will need to check and make sure the pump and drain hose is not clogged. If they are clear, you will need to check and see if power is coming to the pump. If there is power there, but the pump does not run, then the pump is bad. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
