This dishwasher has been doing a crappy job of getting the dishes clean since new 2 years ago. I pulled the unit today so I could do some tile work and found that the drain line was crimped almost flat. My questions are:
1. Is this most likely what is causing the dishes not to get clean? The drain must be allowing some liquid through because there is no standing water when the cycle is over.
2. Is there a way to repair the crimp so I don't have to buy that $35 part?
3. Should I give in to the wife and buy a new dishwasher?
