SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher won't drain? Model#DU5000xw

When it is suppose to be draining, do you hear the pump running.
If not, then the pump or controller/timer is bad. If the controller is sending power to the pump and the pump doesn't run, it's the pump. If no power is getting to the pump, then the controller is bad.
You'll need a voltmeter and know-how to diagnose this electrical problem. This is high-voltage power with water in the area. So please don't try to use a voltmeter unless you are confident of your skills.

If you do hear the pump, then the drain valve (solenoid) is the problem.

The solenoid valve and the pump are all underneath the unit. Accessibility from the front, bottom panel.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

How do I replace a check valve in Whirlpool dishwasher model #WDT710PAYM5

The drain check valve is in the first part on your drain hose, the part attached to the drain pump. You have to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet . you will see the drain hose on the left side of the dishwasher. It is a whitish opaque plastic tube. Detach it from the pump and from the drain extension, a pan may be needed to catch remaining water. Carefully remove the loop from the plastic fill channel. Reinstall in the reverse order

There should be a check valve in the drain hose to prevent that.

DU801 is not the complete model number. Find the complete model number. It should be just inside the door on the right side of the tub.
Go to sears parts direct. And enter your model number and find the part number for the drain hose of your dishwasher. The number in the video may be the correct one.

Whirlpool dishwasher wdf310plab4 will not drain

If the pump can be heard running, check for blockages (filter and hose), What sort of head (siphon height) is involved ? (ie. is water running back). Do you have a "check valve".

If no no pump then ....
a) check you are at the start or end of a cycle.
b) the pump may be seized or defective.
c) machine thinks it is drained.

It is most likely the pump unit, but you will need to investigate that yourself. Download a parts book. The pump is about $50.
I gather it is out of warranty. So this is my best guess.
