Question about Electrolux 134743500 Fridgidaire Washer Motor Control Board
M washer was not draining a year ago and it was under warranty. The repairman said it was the drainage pipe under the sink, not being elevated correctly? I really did not watch him. Now it is doing the same thing and I do not want to call someone for an easy fix. I already cleaned out the filter, etc.
Our dishwasher drains into the same pipe our sink does, which I think is the case with almost all of them. If the drain pipe is getting clogged, it will be difficult for the dishwasher to drain. I would suggest to try drain cleaner (BE SURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS) and if that does not help I would remove the hose from the drain under the sink and see if the hose itself is getting clogged. Our sink drain also gets to the point that drain cleaner does not work, so I remove the "trap" and clean it out.

There may be a hidden blockage. Try putting a garden hose into the outlet pipe, tightly gripping the joining point of the hoses and turning on the water briefly. This can sometimes clear things.
Check also that when the machine is set to the "Drain" position that you can hear the whirr of the drain pump motor. If you can, then the electrics are intact and the pump impelllor inside the pump may have come loose on its shaft or be jammed with a small foreign object. It would be necessary then to remove the pump and dismantle it, or just replace it with a new one.
As always I warn non-technical people to beware of attempting repairs. Not because they may not be mechanically apt...........it is more about them not being used to the Strict Self Safety Disciplines that experienced servicing personnel have in place that protect them from possible injury or even electrocution.
It is simply not worth risking life and limb by trying to avoid the cost of a professional service call after all a life is surely worth much more than that.
Importantly ALWAYS unplug any appliance from the power point before doing anything !!
