If you remove the inner filter
You will see a screw (t20) in the bottom holding the cover to the drain pump down
Remove that screw and cover see if you can rotate the impeller by hand
Also check for kinks or clogs on the sink end
If there are not any then run the drain cycle and see if water is gurgling in the dishwasher. If it's gurgling there has to be a clog or kink in the line and you will need to uninstall it to see
If it's not gargling then you have a bad pump
Because we have and inch or so of water in there I can't see numbers, is it on the left? right?
its on the left
it's a t20 size screw
there won't be anything printed there
the screws. Also, how do we run the drain cycle?
only scre down in there
Press cancel drain or start a new cycle
Cancel drain works if it's running, starting a new cycle works for about 30 seconds
We tried to run a cycle last night without dishes and nothing happened, didn't overflow either.
screws and cover removed, "impeller" rotating by hand. still clogged. No kinks on the sink end
try and see if it runs with power
it runs with power
then you have a kinked or clogged line you will need to pull the dishwasher to access behind the line
If it's running and not kinked or clogged where you can see you will have to uninstall the dishwasher and blow the hose out fully
you can remove it easily once the dishwasher and blow through the hose easily
Thats what all the websites indicated too. So we can just pull the dishwasher out, un-kink the hose and put the dishwasher back?
yes if you have a flex water line, and long enough electrical, if not you have to disconnect these items
Once you do then it just slides out
did you need any other help on this one/
