Hi everybody,
i had a chance to dig into the dishwasher after work and found the problem.. a pistachio shell stuck between the inlet hole and drain pump impeler.. I took some pictures and hopefully these will help the people with the same problem diagnose their issues faster and makes it easiyer on them. i have one question.. How can i bench test the drain pump before installing it to the dishwasher?
Thank you
Sammy

Regardless of whatever else might be going on, you have a bad piston check valve-- the gasket is boogared up and I could see daylight through it. Come git you one ==> http://www.repaircli...24X10018/821081

In the future you should hand wash your pistachios.

Sorry. I have been a few hours imagining pistachio washing.
To answer your drain pump test question, make a 115 volt cheater cord and plug in to the pump terminals. If it runs,it is good.
