Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5740 Free-standing Dishwasher
my dishwasher has got me stumped, it will fill with water, water gets hot. it will drain properly, but it will not push water around the inside, i have taken out the pump (larger one) and taken apert the impellor housing and found that the impellor was loose on the magnetic shaft, i found this to be a sealed unit with no access to get the impellor itself out and figured that this was the cause of the water not circulating, due to free spinning on the shaft. i drilled a hole in the end of the impellor and filled it with locktite glue which held the impellor in place properly as i felt resistance when i put the magnetic end back into the coil housing, but again no luck, it will fill to the required amount, the heater is working it will go through the cycle but no water pushing through any of the jets. (they have been cleaned and are not blocked) even without the arms connected still very little water coming out with no pressure. when i pulled the motor out is was hot, so i can only assume it its tying to work by powering up, i put the test meter on ohms and was showing resistance, so can only assume the windings are intact.
i have had very little satisfaction with whirlpool as they don't sell spare pasrts to the public, i got onto one person who will sell me a motor but costs $210aus with no guarantee that is the problem it is doing my head in, i don't like failures when fixing things and would hate to think it is something else simple, maybe even something to do with the control panel on the front for all i know, i don't want to throw it out as it is only purchased 4-5 years ago and would like to think i would get a bit more use out of it than what i have. any help would be appreciated.
Try stareast sales in Sydney, they have generic pumps that should work
