Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech onthe site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. Does the unit fill with water at all or just grinding then stops?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it just filled and ran. The grinding was in the draining process
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
Ok then you likely have a piece of glass or something in the drain pump you need to slide the unit out of the cabinet and remove the drain pump from the sump assembly on the unit. Check it and you will likely find a foreign object inside, the pump could be bad but doubtful. All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving. Thank you very much for using this service and if you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
