I have removed the pump, and opened it. Where the propeller fits it had water. Is that suppose to have water in it?
Answer Vince, Yes there will be some water left in the drain pump DC31-00054A, also in the recirculation pump if you have that option on your washer. The drain pump is the lowest portion of the drain system and there is water left in the drain to form an air tight "sanitary" trap, to reduce the possible "stack gas" and odors from forming and back flowing into the tub.
