In Topic: GE Dishwasher Overflows into Spillway, Triggers Pump and 'Heated Dry'...

Is the drain pump difficult to remove/replace?  It looks like it screws off from the sump housing (after disconnecting the drain hose and wires), but there doesn't appear to be enough clearance to rotate the entire unit.

 

Thanks

Thanks Samurai, I think you're right about the drain pump.  Now it's not draining at all.  The pump is making kind of a humming/groaning sound continuously.  It continues to run unless I leave the door open (I haven't tried resetting the breaker yet).  The light blue 'box' on the side of the pump is pretty hot (not sure if that's normal).  

 

So does it sound like the whole pump unit is bad, or could it be some component of the pump?

 

Thanks

Thanks for your reply PDuff.  I don't see any cracks or debris.  Does the pressure switch control the water level?  If so, could the pressure switch be malfunctioning sometimes?  I disconnected the hose to the pressure switch and it was clear.  I blew into the switch and can hear it operating, but I'm not sure if that really proves it's working correctly.

 

Thanks for continuing to research.
