My dishwasher is heating up the water, however it sounds

Customer Question

my dishwasher is heating up the water, however it sounds like the water does not get pumped around in the cycle. The dishes are not getting clean. I took the bottom water blade off and did not proceed any further. Any suggestions?

Thank you the model number is ***** not MD8

So once the unit fills with water the water circulation pump is not running?

Do you have a volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it to be able to do any component or voltage testing?

And if you press cancel once will the unit then drain the water out of the unit?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I do not have a volt meter. I am not sure about hitting cancel and the water draining out. I do know that the water drains out once the cycle is completed.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 10 months ago.

ok so that tells me that the drain pump is working and the issue is the water circulation pump.

After the unit fills for the 2 minutes do you hear the water circulation pump even trying to run ? humming sound from under the unit

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I did ask my wife and she stated that the water does drain out if you hit cancel.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I just hear a humming sound. I think the sound starts when the pump should be starting up. Is the pump something a non-professional could replace?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 10 months ago.

sure the pump can be replaced with basic hand tools .
