Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..doyou have a model number ? there is always water in the tub?
Kenmore quiet guard model 587.16193400. Yes, but it seems to be a bit much.
have you tried anything yet? does the dishwasher drain hose drain into a garburetor under the sink or into the existing plumbing ? is there any abnormal noise when the machine goes to a drain cycle?
I have cleaned screens, taken off drain hose and cleaned. I disconnected the small hose between the sump and pump and the sump does drain. Pump works but stopped pumping when water is about 1/2 over the bottom plastic screen. Drains into garbage disposal. No abnormal noise.
both ends of the drain hose and garburetor end are clear , screwdriver in each end ?sounds like you have checked all the obvious things , if all the hoses are clear i have run across a few pumps where the impeller overheats and strips and doesnt move the water out again , drove me crazy , because i couldnt find a blockage ..if all the the hoses are clear i would suspect the pump itself
That's what I thought but it seems to works fine until it gets to a certain level and then stops. Is there a float somewhere that can be adjusted or cleaned?
pump has a check valve ,just a little flapper that allows the water to leave ,and closes when water out , its not much ,other than that it should just run for a few minutes and drain all the water, ive taken the pumps apart and checked them and swore they were working ok ,blew thru the hoses with no resistance ,still didnt work properly ,changed the pump ,worked great..maybe under a load ,they strip out quicker
Okay. I'll replace the pump then and see how she works. Thanks.
ok good luck , any problems let me know ,
