Question about Kenmore 15121 Built-in Dishwasher
No apparent blockage....there is a guard around the drain to catch big things. Water ran out onto kitchen floor. Would like to take guard off to further examine, but is attached with unique screws...not philips, hex, etc...something I am unfamiliar with.
If it looks somewhat like a elongated and cropped figure 8 it is what we around here call a clutch drive. if it looks like a 6 point star, it is a torx drive.. Be aware, the screws holding the guard in place may also be holding the pump in place under the unit. if so removing the screws would allow the pump to fall off the bottom of the unit.
If the unit washes, the motor and pump are working (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes also drains the unit)
if the motor is not running during the drain cycle, it is most likely the timer or a connection to the timer
if the unit is not running at all, it could be the motor or timer
if the motor/pump is working, I would first ensure the drain line is not clogged (pump may be trying to drain the unit and forcing the water out were ever it can due to a blocked drain hose, this would explain the water on the floor. I have found that when a drain line is blocked, it is usually blocked where the drain hose connects to the drain pipe under the sink.
