Does it hum?
The bubbles alone will NOT cause the pump to fail
Yes, it still hums.
And you get nothing pumping?
If you get no pumping it's likely just something stuck in it and coincidence with the bubbles
there is NO way bubbles caused a pump to lock up
I can get water pumping out into the sink, but there is no spray inside..
ok, what area is the clog likely to occur?
Right at the impeller
Lemme see if I can find a diagram for you to help
that would be great.
Ok, I'm posting a diagram but it's HORRIBLE!!!! This is all they have available unfortunately
The pump is 46
The impeller in the pump would be the issue
It could POSSIBLY the an issue if there was soooo much soap it dried and clogged the pump
Your probably gonna have to get to the bottom and actually PULL the pump to get to the impeller
You won't be able to reach it inside
I can work with it.. What is be best way to access this - from the back or under?
I doubt you can get to it easily from the back
If your VERY nimble maybe
Under it is...
I'm happy to try and help further, but I will be honest unless you post a picture for me to go by the diagram is soo crappy I probably won't be much help
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX at it tomorrow and if I can't do it I'll find someone who can. It's nice to have a target to look at.
That humming is the motor trying to turn the impeller
If you get it moving by hand you will be fine, if not you can order that part from www.searspartsdirect.com and replace it
that's a good sign!
You shouldn't have to hire someone if you can get to it and are reasonably handy
