Question about Tappan 18 in. MDR251RE Built-in Dishwasher
The drain hose is fine. I hear some grinding when it is supposed to drain. I also found some porcelain about the size of some broken down pork chop bones under the grill inside the dishwasher. Turf it???
Some of that porcelain is in the pump which drains the dishwasher. This is an easy job but you will need a phillips head screw driver.
Remove the lower front panel and you will see the drain hose. The end of the drain hose at the base of the dishwasher is connected to the drain pump. Loosen the clamp and remove the drain hose. Check the hose for pieces of porcelain. Next remove the drain pump and look inside of it. I am quite sure you will find a piece of porcelain in there. Remove it and reconnect everything. That should solve your problem.
