Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If it is able to drain and the motor runs, thew issue is likely with the controller. What exactly happens when it stops?

Dishwasher stops during cycle still

Does it stop with water in it, like it is unable to drain?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
You there?

Any suggestions?

It stops with water in it

Can you hear the drain pump trying to run when it should be draining?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The machine just stops during its cycle
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can here the draining sound
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The red light keeps flashing
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

So there is a blockage in the drain path. Can you remove the hose from the home's plumbing connection and see if it will drain into a bucket?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No the drain is not blocked.I have used the garden hose to clear it. Also used a plunger inside the machine
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Then the pump has to be faulty if you can hear it running but it will not drain. The impeller may be broken or worn or may have come loose from the motor shaft.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Just turned it on
It makes a grumbling noise.
No water coming in
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Water won't enter if it has not drained from the tub during last cycle. The grumbling is the pump and would support its likely failure.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
now what?
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

The drain pump will need to be replaced.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Who does that?
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Well, you can if you think you are able to perform some moderate disassembly, electrical connections and water connections. If you are not completely comfortable, I would phone for an appliance technician because a water leak could be disastrous.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

You are very welcome, take care, thank you!
