purchase in 2005 or 2006

Thanks for that information Dave..Two most common problems when this happens is either the top spray arm is blocked with food..(Check the small holes in the spray arm..Clean as needed) Or a weak circulation pump..At 7 years old the washer unfortunately is on a fine line as far as pump wear is concerned..But first check the spray arm and manifold leading to the spray arm for blockage or and splits etc. Which will cut down on water pressure.

approx. replacement cost?

If the problem is the pump...To replace the pump..You would need to remove the unit from the cabinet..Turn it bottom side up..Replace the pump..Before replacing the can try replacing the pumps impeller .Fairly straight forward..Cost for pump is $137.00 cost for impeller $15-20..
