Dishwasher repair. I have a whirpool dishwasher gold series model #wdf750saym3 that had a problem with the pump and motor assembly. The unit is only a few years with
very little hours of use. I replace the pump and motor assembly just December 2017 and the dishwasher worked fine again. Now less than a month its not washing, but doing the other functions. Why the pump fail again?

ARe you sure the main motor is not running?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When the unit is running proper after it fills with water you can hear the motor going and the sprayer arms rotating.
But what's happening now the unit would fill with water and you would have time past then the water would pump
out and the unit would fill with water again but no wash activity.
