My Whirlpool Gold built in dishwasher purchased 12/2002 pumps water into the machine but that's it. It will drain when I press the cancel button. It has been very noisy the last few times we ran it, but there is no water leaking anywhere.
The model number is worn off the paper label but I have the serial number FM4309573. I suspect the pump.

This is a possible sign that the water pump has failed in some way or the control circuit for the water pump has failed. You MIGHT be able to access the pump without pulling the dishwasher out of the cabinet space through the front kick panel. You may have to remove a few screws to get it off. You'll have to work low, on your belly, but it'll beat taking the dishwasher out and turning it on its side. Especially considering it's probably still full of water!
With the machine on and "running" at the point where it's supposed to be spraying or draining, check for voltage at the pump. If you see 120V there, the pump motor has failed. If you don't see any voltage, the control board assembly has most likely failed in some way. It's located at the top of the door. Again, remove a few screws and tilt it out. I would first check for a blown fuse, burnt board, etc.
I hope this helps! :) Let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter.
If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.
The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.
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.
Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.
