Oh Great Samurai,

The dishwasher quoted above is still full of water at the end of things.. the unit fills with water, the motor spins and seems to do everything else ok.. but it won't drain..

Do cheapy low end washers have solenoids triggering the drain valve.. or ? 

Thanks in advance, oh beery one..

Brett

Checked some more things:

drain hose is clear, removed the drain hose from the motor, no check valve evident externally..

doesnt appear to be any solenoids on the drain section either..

Tried pulling diagrams on your d/w-- no go.  Are you sure the model number is correct?

yup.. confirmed it on the tag inside the door..

canadian model only maybe?

Im not too familiar with AC motor theory.. but Ive got 4 wires going to the motor

2 from timer/front panel area, 1 Line voltage, and 1 from an unknown component (3 terminal, one end has terminal going to motor, 2 terminals (on same end of device) going to front panel.. wire wound item, looks like xformer or inductor?)
