model 665.17579 unit is used daily. 2 weeks ago dishes were not drying. Everything else seemed to be working. Element was bad. Put in new element. Cleaned filters in bottom of unit of debris. Turned on unit still not water flowing through spray arms. tried diagnostic by pressing: high temp scrub, air dry, high temp scrub, air dry. Went through cycle no codes showing. restarted dishwasher, same problem. Water drains when i press cancel drain. my assumptions are the same pump handles both.
I removed lower basket, removed the piping that runs to the top of unit. removed lower spray arm. removed the screws, lifted the cover from the inside of the bottom of the unit and cleaned out unit. I also remove the cover over the food grinder. and found it OK screen was clean. I pulled rubber flapper valve to make sure it was working okay. Reassembled the unit. i did all this after changing element and finding water was not pumping correctly.
the dishasher appears to run all the cycles. I can see the time counting down on the unit.
The water is heating so I am sure the wires are connected to the element. Is there away to check the circulation pump?
