I check all that, and did all that. In the service manual it says.

"Is the coil of the drain pump too high or low?

(resistance of coil is 10-20Ω)"

"Yes"

"Replace the DRAIN PUMP ASSEMBLY"

Is the resistance suposed to be 10- 20Ohms or is it if you get 10-20ohms, replace the drain pump?

The hose is clear, nothing in impeller.

The drain motor? Thats what Im thinking.

Took the drain pump motor out, and the impeller was ground down to nothing compared to the new one. Something got through the trap and chewed it up. People check those pockets, before doing wash. Replaced pump motor drained in about a minute and a half, all is well.

Thanks for all the help.
