You need to blow through that discharge tube from the drain pump.  Looks don't count.  Don't be squeamish-- I do this all the time and I've only gotten diarrhea twice... or twelve times... or maybe a couple hundred... hell, I don't remember, I crapped those brain cells out long ago.

Time to call in the repair team.  It's been an overall slow process on my part, I was waiting for the terminal block to come from RepairClinic (and then find time to install it once it came), did that this morning, ran a quick wash and it counted down but nothing was happening (Start @ 32 Min, by 24 min, nothing in the tub), meaning no water was filling the tub.  Yes, water is turned on under the sink.

 

That being said, the pump is working again, I poured a glass of water in the dishwasher, cancelled the quick wash, and the water was pumped away.

 

Anything last minute to look for regarding the not filling with water issue before making a phone call to a local repair shop?  Was there another valve I may have closed on the dishwasher side that i forgot about?

 

Under sink: HW-Red Handle 1 (to sink, works), CW-Blue Handle1 (to sink, works), CW-Blue Handle tee'd to dishwasher (wide open, even tried "open/close" while waiting for the tub to fill in the event it was sticking).

Sounds like a different issue now?

What fixed the problem of it not draining?

Did you blow through the discharge hose from the drain pump?

Water will not fill if the door switch is bad or disconnected.

Are you getting 110V to the valve?

Sorry for the delay in response.  Things have been hectic.  Been washing dishes the "old fashioned" way.  Everything works now.

 

Quick overview.

 

1. Wouldn't drain

2. Replaced drain pump

3. Still wouldn't drain

4. Pulled dishwasher out

5. Checked float switch/float, all good

6. Pushed back into place

7. Would now drain, but wouldn't fill (did before pulling it out)

8. Sat for about one month not working on project

9. Called repair service

10. Red float rod was stuck (happened when pushing back in place apparently)

11. Repair serviceman moved that back into place, and left.  No charge

12.  All works again!

 

Unless there was something that was stuck in the drain line that got loosened by moving the dishwasher out, I did nothing other than replace the drain pump (and put the original one back in too and it still drained)  I've ran several full loads and everything works great.

 

Thanks for everyone's assistance along the way!

 

One final question, where do these two pieces go back into place at?

Hmmm, where've I heard that before? Lets see....

Your punchlist, please respond explicitly to each:
 
- In front of this assembly should be the float assembly with a gray plunger and red piston.  Move the gray plunger up and down a few times to make sure it isn't stuck in the up (flooded) position.  
 


11. Repair serviceman moved that back into place, and left.  No charge


He probably lurks at these forums and read the solution right here! :dude:

I'll bet the drain hose was kinked where it went through  the wall. Been there done that.
