Sorry. Ge monogram dishwasher doesn't drain. Model zbd6920p30ss

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

There is either something in the drain pump that has it stopped up and not allowing it to drain properly or the pump is just bad considering you say its been making vibrating noises lately the pump is likely just bad but you can inspect it to be sure before ordering a new one. The replacement is listed below:

Dishwasher Drain Pump

Part #: WD26X10048 - click here for part info at sears

Below is a video that shows how to access and replace the drian pump motor on a GE profile unit, it's the same pump and same replacement procedure as your monogram:

I got and installed the part number you listed. It was somewhat different that the pump I removed and the little metal tie bar attachment no longer reaches the pump. It is only held in place by the hoses and hose clamps. Is that acceptable? Will it loosen and leak?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The pump I bought is genuine ge part and the correct pn on the box. The end that goes into the sump on the new pump is rigid and short. The old one and the one in the parts diagram has a short piece of hose attached to it before entering the sump.

That pump is only held in place by the hose clamp that is correct, see image below:
