Appliance Parts :

Hi my name isXXXXX have been an appliance servicer since 1992.
Can you please provide me the model number off the dishwasher itself? This can be found when you pull the door open and look around the door frame and cabinet. This will allow me to help you to the fullest!
thank you


Model #FFBD2407LQ0B

Appliance Parts :

This model has an external drain pump. You will need to determine if the voltage is there at the drain pump when advanced to drain. If you hear the motor, it is a good chance it is good, but you would have to remove the drain motor from the bottom of the dishwasher to see if the impeller fan is not stripped.Do you have a volt meter? You should be able to gain access through the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove the toe plate and you should have access to check only. Dishwasher will have to removed to replace the drain motor: #154736201 drain motor.
Let me know, thanks
