Should there be any discharge of the sump well with this condition?



Is there any way debris could be cleared from the impeller or does the entire pump assymble have to be ordered?

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Well there can be some discharge of water from the sump but if it's slipping on the shaft of the motor which is probably what's going on you're not going to get full drain power, you have to water the whole pump assembly if it needs to be replaced, you can pull the machine out from under the cabinet and remove the pump and see if maybe there is something in it stopping the impeller from moving, but if that happened most likely the impeller has slipped on the motor shaft, the only fix the that is replacement, thanks, Bryan

So the only accessible way to pull the pump is to remove the appliance?

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.

It's a lot easier if you have the machine out, reaching the pump from the front is difficult, you may be able to do it however but getting it back in is even more difficult, I usually Pull the appliance it's just much easier to access that way, a little more work though but you are able to lay the machine on its back to work on it, which makes it a lot easier
