Hi,

In most dishwashers, the water pump is located under the lower sprayer arm. This component pumps the water through the dishwasher. The pump has two impellers, top and bottom. These, as well as other components, can become clogged with food or detergent. Here's how to disassemble the pump:

Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.

Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.

Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.

Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.

Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.

To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

    On
    some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type
    of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible
    motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine
    possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from
    the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the
    problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.

The most likely is either a defective drain pump or a clogged drain hose.

    A faulty pump is often cause for machine not draining, but it is not the only possibility.

    Check first the drain hose at the bottom inside the machine, ensure it is not clogged.

    See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:






    The water doesn't drain from the machine

    If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

    Drain line/air gap
    Pump
    Drain valve and/or solenoid
    Belt
    Motor
    Timer



    Drain line/air gap

    A
    clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason
    that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where
    the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain
    line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose
    or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the
    dishwasher again.




    Pump

    Your
    dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly
    to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can
    reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove
    the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

    Look
    for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins
    around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the
    spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is
    similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller
    pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the
    pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace
    them.




    Drain valve and/or solenoid

    Many
    dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When
    electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the
    water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever,
    sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly.
    Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may
    have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the
    motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain
    valve diverts the water.

    Other dishwashers simply reverse the
    direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have
    a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the
    pump housing.




    Belt

    One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.




    Motor

    If
    the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check
    to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section
    "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may
    need to be replaced.

    Some dishwashers are susceptible to
    getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the
    dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the
    motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it.
    Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.




    Timer

    Part
    of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the
    timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to
    replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.


    You can get replacemen parts and diagrams inserting the model number here.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Oct 11, 2008

    You do not know if the pump is faulty, before replacing it you need to test the solenoid that activates the pump, and energize the pump directly to see if it works.

    On some model you also need to test the motor assembly, and the motor relay.

    To replace the pump you need just to access it, usually removing a small panel, remove it and replace it.

    Here is a generic diagram, move the mouse on top of the picture to locate the motor and pump assembly.


    You need to give us exact model number to get the diagrams.


    See here if you need help finding the model number on your appliance.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Oct 11, 2008

    Start checking the drain well here :



    Then you need to remove bottom panel, and check 0321D Non Return Valve and 0161 Drain Pump.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining

Hello Tony,
Before pointing the finger at the pump.. try these few things first..
Make sure your drain screen filter is free of food by products and not restricting water flow out
Make sure your drain hose is not pinched, clogged or restricting water flow out
Make sure the place your drain hose drains into is not restricting water flow out

If you have water remaining in the base of the wash compartment, bail out as much as you can then run a dishless cycle to see how much water remains in the comaprtment. If it drains completely, then you should be ok.. if not then, you may have a bad pump, obstruction in the line into or out of that pump.. Let me know how it goes after you run thru the checks listed above and the outcome of the wash cycle. Hope this helps..

Regards

Hi, hoover hed6612-80 when the door is opened the


The problem is most likely that the drain is blocked. Remove the lower front panel on the dishwasher. You will see the drain hose connected to a small pump close to the floor. disconnect the hose and remove the pump. There will be some water so be prepared with some paper towels, or rags. Remove the small pump so you can visually inspect it on the inside, remove any debris you find. If there is no debris there go under the kitchen sink and disconnect the other end of the dishwasher hose. you can then remove the entire hose to inspect it for a blockage. If no blockage in the hose, you must then check the path of the drain water through the garbage disposal [if you have one] and then the trap.

Drain pump probably not working. Put machine on cycle 7 and it should turn on the drain pump straight away. you can hear this near the bottom of the machine. if it is silent hten the pump probably needs replacing. I repaired mine be removing it and then dismantle the magnet from the tube then give it a good clean out.
