Customer Question

Re: Model SHE47C. Dishwasher is about 9 years old. Has worked perfectly until now. Dishwasher seems to function properly until well into the drying cycle, whereupon it makes a terrible "grinding" noise, like maybe it is still trying to pump out the water and there is none to pump. We open the dishwasher and the dishes are dry for all practical purposes. Help!

Hello, the pump may be running and the impeller may just be bad on the drain pump. Can you take the drain pump out and check the impeller to see if it is loose as would be standard for a unit that old.

What is the best way to do that?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 years ago.

You should slide the unit out of the cabinet and remove the left side cover to get at it, watch this video
