Check that the drain hose is set at the correct height, as specified in the manual. Otherwise machine will not drain correctly.

Check that drain lines are clear.

Check Part # 328 VALVE FLAPPER, and Part # 505 SUMP INLET , Sump filter and parts (see diagram).


If there is no problem with parts above, and pump is new, then the control module must be tested reading volts at pump. For safety reasons the test is better done by a technician.

It is probably getting energized through a direct short. Normally this would trip the breaker but sometimes installers take shortcuts and don't properly ground the the unit. Find the correct breaker in the main panel and turn it off (double check with your VOM). then pull off the lower cover below the door. you should see where the romex cable enters a small junction box. pull the cover off and pull out the wires and see if you find any nicks in any of the wires. while the wires are pulled out and not touching the j-box turn the breaker back on. see if you get any voltage on the inside metal case. if not then you know the source of the problem. if you still see a voltage check the motor and see if the outside of the motor case has any voltage on it. if yes then the wiring to the motor or the motor itself is faulty. Without looking at it my first guess is a hot or neutral wire is in direct contact with the metal frame. Keep in mind neutral wires can carry returning current on them and thus can shock you as well.

It is not very unusual to find 120V on the door panel. The voltage is fed straight to the control board from the mains from which it gets distributed to different components like door switch, detergent detector, motors and pumps. The layout is shown on this schematic

It is likely the door switch connection is leaking. You will need to take the multimeter (on ohms setting) and carefully measure the points on different components on the disassembled door panel for short to the panel body. Make sure the dishwasher is disconnected from the mains power.
