So you need to make sure you have 110 volts going to the drain pump while the wires are plugged into the pump. Sometimes there is a voltage drop and it'll drop to 90 volts or something like that which will make the pump spin slowly. Either way, if you're definitely getting 110 volts to the drain pump and the drain hose is clear and you can blow through it, you need to return the drain pump because it came faulty and you need to order a new one---I'd suggest not ordering a re-conditioned one.

You just plug the pump in like normal. Then you shove the probes from your meter into the back of the plug holes so you can test power between the 2 wires while it's plugged into the pump. You should have 110 volts when the pump should be running between the 2 wires or else the control board is bad.
OK perfect, than you have the correct power which means that either your drain hose is clogged or the drain pump is just faulty so make sure the drain hose isn't clogged (which it doesn't sound like since you can lower the hose and it drains out) and return the pump and get a new one because it came faulty.
No, you definitely will not. It can only push out water, not air.
