Customer Question

whirlpool du840swpu1. 3 years old. Not draining completely, only about 70%. Just took pump and collector apart and everything looks good. No clogs, impeller is fully intact, diaphram in drain valve is good, air gap is clear, no kinks in drain line. Drains well into bucket but not completely. Drain cycle runs for 60 seconds. Needs another 30 to drain fully. Is there a timer adjustment for the drain cycle
