Have you checked the drain hose for a blockage?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yes, I don't think that's the problem. where is the most likely blockage?

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 7 years ago.
If the hose is not blocked than the next likely place would be the pump.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
How can I check if the pump is broken. It has been making a growling sound lately.
Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 7 years ago.
The pump is located under the unit you need to remove the front lower kick plate to access it.Empty out as much water as you can and remove the pump and check it for a blockage.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Also is it possible that the water level detector is broken? where is this and should it be replaced? Where do I get these parts from?

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 7 years ago.
I dont think the water level switch is the problem.If you need parts go to www.appliancepartspro.com
