Is it the number 506 your having a problem with ?
On this breakdown its number 505 and you have to remove the two clamps number 452 and 330, why do you want to remove the sump.
Hello John, Let's try this again. I just get that your answer was bloked.
What I have done so far is to remove part #585 the pipe that transfers the water to the upper level. I have also removed part # 506 the cover and cleaned it out. I was thinking of removing Part #508 the filter but it is just filled with water which I took out and I do not know if removing it would help at all. It just jiggles around and I was wondering if it was screwed down or just a clip somewhere. Do I really need to pull it out and if so How?
Just received your answer. The reason I want to remove the sump is that the water will not drain from the dishwasher and one of the answers was to replace the sump filter and cover, or at least clean it. So I am. But now that I see what the sump filter is and whare I do not think I have to. Just clean the cover? If not the next thing I was told to try was to replace the Drain Pump part #325 which would be expensive. I have allready replaced Part #328 the RED rubber valve seal that says "OUT" as it was broken. That was the original reason I thought it was for not draining, but it is not. Am I on the right PATH??
Is the pump motor going in the drain cycle if its not the impeller in the pump could be blocked with debris.
You don't have to do anything else but check the water pump .
I think the pump motor IS going but not sure?
When it was working you could hear the water flow down the exit pipe and into the drain.
How do I check the water pump to see if the impeller is bloked with debris?
This is the pump in case you need to replace it.
Thank you John,
This is the page where they said that it could be the Sump Filter and Cover, but they did not give instructions on how to remove the cover so that is why I got in touch with Just answer.
Thank you for all your help
Have a good night
