i am not sure but, doing the middle cycles the dran pump is not making any loud noises. but not 100% on is it at very end or not. i just know it dont make it now when in middle of cycle as far as draining.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay well if it happens at the end of the cycle it has to be something in the drain pump itself. remove the access panel under the door and check the pump. # XXXXX on this diagram. if theres nothing in the pump like a piece of glass then the pump would need replacing. towards the end of the cycle the pump has run a while and if the bushings in the pump heat up it will make a squealing noise. Most of the time its a bad pump. these pumps are famous for failure. one of the things that happens to these is the impeller get loose on the motor shaft. heres a link to order the pump. thanks and best wishes, Bryan
