Question about Dishwashers
I have been working on the issue for 2 days now. History: floor model installed by Sears a year ago. It never cleaned well or drained completely. Started getting worse dishes coming out dirtier than when they went in. I pulled it out cleaned it well, tested hoses, pulled rusty metal and shards of glass out of pump area. Re-assembled, opened up the punch out on disposal better, hung hoses higher under sink and then tested. It cleaned very, very well but left a ton of water in the bottom. It is draining but not well at all. Any suggestions before I buy a $150 pump?

disassemble the top of the dishwasher pump, remove the bottom spray arm and remove the screws on the top of the pump housing this will get you started

I have the same problem. The part you're talking about can be released from under the dishwasher to clean it. www.searspartsdirect.com has useful diagrams. I cleaned everything but still have the problem which is caused either by the "check balls", the "check valve" or the "pressure check" thing. I still have to figure it out. A good way to know if the system is obstructed is to press the drain button when there is some water left in the bottom.

check for a clogged discharge hose where it connects to the plumbing under the sink...this is the most common area for a clog. if no restriction is found, the discharge valve will need to be tested

try to clean the filter by taking off the bottom section of the water jet, it might be clogged, if that does not work, u got the same problem as me, it just wont drain. The pump is probably broken.
