Something is causing it to overheat; the shut off is automatic and is saving the pump from burning up. The pump may be failing or there is something overloading it causing the heat.

Try to make sure it is clean and free of any blockages not allowing air to flow around it.

Otherwise, plan on a new pump soon.

Shallow water pump keeps stopping

new pump --not big enough for the job
old pump --motor windings problem, faulty start run capacitor
I suspect that as the motor is 1/2 hp if will run good when there is a need for water but under pressure the pressure switch is set to high so the motor overloads and gets hot

Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.

Many times a problem like yours can be traced to a failing fuel pump. When it gets hot it binds and stops, later after it cools off it functions normally 'till it gets hot again. Next time is dies, immediately turn the key off, then to the run position and listen for the pump (humming in tank) if you don't hear it, likely that's the problem. Never buy parts without testing though. A pump alone can set you back over $200.!!!

Pump works for about 20 seconds then stops for 40 seconds then starts again.

this sounds as if motor is overheating and the thermal switch is stopping it (why it restarts by itself) if a pump is overheating then a few reasons need be looked at , is pump encountering higher viscosity's than designed for and is having trouble moving liquid fast enough , is distance pump has to lift liquid over what it's designed to do most of these pumps use liquid it's moving to provide cooling to pump , is liquid it's moving warm/Hot allready if so use different type of pump (non submerged) and last but not least is pump worn out and is failing moving parts wearing together make heat !!! ?

First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.

Won't stop pumping

H android1968 and danimaldds

The reason it keeps running is because there is water in the pan under the dishwasher. firs this to do is shut the power off, then take the kick plate off, remove all the water that you can. this should fix it , if it happens again there might be a leak from a seal or from suds. hope this helps
