How long does it run normally?
Not quite sure what you are asking...normal cycle is it starts runs a few minutes, stops and starts a few times and them runs continually until cycle is complete...I assume the initial start and stop is a pre-soak step. It has run fine since we bought it, this is the first problem we've had. The unit is over 2 years old but I believe less than 3.
I thought you said it kicks in hums and does not run?
If the pump runs, what is your question?
Perhaps I did not express myself well. When you turn the unit on water starts going to the unit however motor does not start right away which is the normal delay. After a few minutes, when the unit was working the motor would start and washing cycle began, now instead of running it starts humming but does not run.
...don't know if this is important but you can hit the "Cancel Drain" button and it will empty the dishwasher
There are seperate motors
Did you actually take apart the filter and check the pump, or did you just shine a light down in the middle
I did not take anything apart, I was intending on doing that but felt some direction would be in order and I'm not sure how to remove things to get down inside.
oh ok .... well best case scenario something is wedged in the pump
Worst case you have a bad pump
get you a T15 and a T20 torx screw driver handy and a pair of needle nose pliers and let's dive in
Can you give me step by step that I can follow tomorrow morning as I cannot get into it at this time. I was hoping for instructions and possibly a detail drawing (something from a service manual)
Best I can do is a parts drawing
I can't really do a perfect step by step from memory, I will do the best I can
You unscrew counter clockwise the spray arm, then remove the 3 screws you can see
Then you rotate the piece hooked to the back spray tower
And you can then remove it and remove the other (4th) screw you cannot see
Then you lift out the filter system
Once you remove this some models have 2 screws left down in there, some have just 1 but either 1 screw holding a plastic panel and 1 holding the pump cover, or just 1 holding the pump cover
Use the needle nose pliers to remove the pump cover and your looking at the pump impeller
You can see if anything is wedged in there
Just reverse to put back toegther. Thanks!
