I just pulled the unit out of the cabinet and found that the drain line has a major kink in it. Looks to have been that way since it was installed three years ago. Would this have damaged the water pump over time?


No it should be ok once repaired.

Then use the magic you will see a huge difference in the wash

yes you can Move the timer to a drain cycle or push cancel drain
