Motors for tall tub whorlpools are over two hundred dollars. If its less than a year then its under warranty. You did not indicate model. If you can get back to me I'll look more in to seeing if it is feasable to repair or replace.

Dishwasher will not drain I think it:s the pump


It will help if you provide the make and model of dishwasher. There can be several reasons for dishwasher not draining. The most common is blocked filters or drain hose. Also ensure the kitchen side of drain is clear. If pump is running but making grinding sounds then something is blocking the drain pump. If you do not hear pump running sound then the dishwasher may not even be getting to the drain cycle for other reasons.

Dishwasher makes grinding sound during wash cycle.I cancelled and drained due to the sound.


Hello,
This means that some debris is trapped inside the motor. You can complete this repair yourself, it's simple. Remove the lower spray arm followed by the screws on the top of the motor housing.
The impeller will be below the part that lifts off with the screws removed.

It sounds like you've done a lot to try and fix your dishwasher. Make sure your air gap is not plugged up and double check the drain hose. If those are clear change out your drain hose. Part#8270145 the elbow connector sometimes have a bad check valve and could keep it from draining.
Hope that helps Thanks please rate me

A loud noise from the pipe that connects the dishwasher under the sink. Would that be a problem with the machine??


When the solenoid turn on to let water into the dishwasher and when it turns back off it can cause the pipe to jump. I will assume that it is banging into something. If so over time it could create a hole in the pipe or tube. I'd try and figure out what it is hitting and move one or the other things.

Grinding sounds


Grinding sounds that last for longer than 3 minutes at a time are usually an indication of something in the wash pump. If the grinding is only for about 2 minutes at a time it would be something related to the drain pump.

It depends on the make and model on how to clean out the pump or drain pump. If you happen to have a tall tub Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool or Kenmore this link has instructions on how to do that.

Water remains in Whirpool Gold Quiet Partner dishwasher


sounds like an issue with the drain pump, disconnecting the drain hose fromm the trap and run the unit, pointing the disconnected drain hose into a bucket. You should get a fairly strong stream of water until most of the unit has drained, if not you either have a blockage or ,with the grinding sound, a bad pump.

Whirlpool Sound During Drain


Yes, you can pull one of the pump's leads to find whether the noise comes from the pump. You should unplug machine's power cable first and be sure that the disconnected wire is isolated. Before replacing the pump look that it clean from any foreign object/ Good luck!
