Question about Samsung DMR57LFS Stainless Steel Builtin Dishwasher
Items that fall into the sump need to be removed ASAP here's how you do it. First shut off the electricity and the water. Open the front door and remove both the racks. Next you need to remove the wash pipe that goes from the sump up the back of the unit and over the top to the top wash arm. To do this simply apply pressure forward and unsnap the plastic pipe from the holders, next pull upwards to take the lower end of the rectangular pipe out of the sump, put this aside. Now you will see many screws that hold down the screen, remove these, they are about 2 inches or so long. Pull up on the sump cover and you will see the white/yellow nylon wash pump wheel. (note that the black seal will most likely stretch out and not fit back into the channel that it came out of, you can either buy a replacement seal or do what i did and cut the excess and re-attach it using hi-temp permatex gasket sealant this worked for me for over three years) remove the plastic wash pump wheel by turning the bolt counter clockwise (it is a left hand thread). it will pull up and out. Next remove the bottom grey plastic (this is were the seal sits) just gently pull it up. you will now see the bottom of the sump along with the cutting blade. You will also see any debris that is stuck in there. Remove all the debris, glass, straws etc. Use a wetvac as this might be the safest, I prefer to dig the stuff out by hand to see what actually caused the pump to make so much noise. After this re-assemble and remember to pre-rinse your dishes the next time before putting them into the dishwasher, mashed potatos will gum up the sump and drain valve like you have never seen. Be sure to clean all the parts well before re-assembly and then you will have a brand new machine!
