All four glasses are filling up with water and the tub is completely covered in water after letting it run a few minutes.
Also, I took the drain pump and tube off and cleaned them out. It didn't look like there was anything significant blocking it.
I found out which part is the filter pump. I've had it out twice and the only thing of note there is that one of the membranes appears to have separated from the casing.
We have softened water and the inside of the dishwasher is as clean as a whistle except for the heating element. Also, I cleaned out the catch basin and the drain pump and drain line, so I know there isn't any residue in the washer. Do you have any other ideas?
Do I need to disconnect the heating element to check the continuity? Where should I touch the probes to check it?
I checked the continuity and it was OK. Thanks for the help. Now I know all about my dishwasher .
