no


 

Can I get the complete model number of the dishwasher?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Where do I find the model #?


 


Also, I ran a cycle and never heard water go in or out, but the "drying" light is on, there's steam coming out, and there's a metallic smell.

Inside the door opening area of the machine there should be a label with a model number on it..

The model number will have 3 digits then a period them more numbers or digits after it, it will also show the serial number of the unit on the sticker..

And I do hear the drain pump for a couple seconds, but then it turns off, I think.

When you press the cancel button the drain pump should run for about 2 minutes

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, but it doesn't. And I ran a cycle with the dishwasher empty in hopes that the drain part of the cycle would remove the water in the bottom, but now there's even more water.

Do you have you dishwasher drain hooked up to a garbage disposal unit under the sink?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Maybe. The disposal wasn't working either, but I managed to reset that and now that's working again. How can I tell if the dishwasher drain is hooked to the garbage disposal?

You should see a tube that goes into the side of the garbage disposer, remove that hose and make sure that it is not blocked going into it from backup waste from the disposer...


Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I did that, and the tube seems clear.

Okay, Then your check valve is stuck underneath. this is a messy job as when you remove the check valve it is going to let all the water out of the unit, you will need to use a shop vac and suck the unit dry to keep the mess to a minimum, then remove the bottom cover on the dishwasher, remove the hose from the drain, then unscrew the check valve from the pump., on the pump side of the check valve you will see a ball, it needs to be loose and free, once you have it free you can reassemble the unit and try it again, the check valve is item 15 in the diagram below

How much would it cost to have a repair person handle it? And how can I save the image from your last answer? Will I be able to access this conversation after I close the web page? And in the diagram it says the gasket has to be replaced each time the pump is detached and re-attached. Is that true?
