my washer turns on, and the motor runs, and the water fills, but the machine does nothing else. Does not pump water into the washer arms, or out. I guess it is the pump or relay, but can't seem to find the pump itself. Also, is there a site that I can look at a parts digram?

Re: motor runs but
This is issue with the spray arms........
There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.
If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

In order to have a spinning wash '''blades''(arms)...the machine must take water from the tank ...through one pump...manifold...wash arms...dishes..
Can be..impeller of the pump is broken..especially if is plastic one
the wash motor is not running
What it sounds like to me is the water fill solonoid plugged or not opening all the way. Check to see if the washer fills with water when starting, that should be the first thing it should do. If it does, then the whining noise could be your water pump inside the washer trying to run, which means it could be a bad motor or the impeller may have come off of the motor shaft. I would pull the screen off the inside of the machine and inspect for damage from a bad impeller. You will have to pull the washer arms off first, they just pull up and off, and the screen you can do the same to. If it is motor or impeller problems I would suggest calling an appliance repair man or just check to see what it might close to get repaired.
First thing to distinguish is which motor are you hearing working is it the wash motor or is it the drain motor. Describing what you have above I would tend to think that it would be the drain motor that you are hearing on the drain pump itself. This happens for a couple reasons in a dishwasher. One your Float switch could be defective. Two you could have a leak condition in the unit and the drain pump is trying to pump out the water due to this issue. Three you could have a clogged drain line or exit port where your drainlines goes into your sink or in the drain line itself. Four would be a clog in the drain pump itself or the impellar of the pump is not turning. How much water do you have on the inside of the machine and is the machine draining if it is draining then I would look at the float switch first in the unit. I will await your reply as to your finds and if you have any further questions message me back Thank you Rick
even if the pump is running does not mean the impeller shaft is turning, You could unplug the machine and disconnect the washer and pull out and drop the hose to see if water will drain when you lower the hose to about 8 inch's does it run out freely? if not check for a plugged water pump or water pump hose if the water flows freely you will need to drain the washer if it's on rollers roll it out side to allow the water to drain out the machine from the porch. while it is draining check the hose that the washer connects to see if you see any plug in the pipe. put the sink drain plugs in and fill half way with water put a bucket under the sink after filling the water to half full pull the stopper out of the sink that connects to the dish washer. Hold your hand on the hole of the connection to the sing watch to see if the drain allows the water to flow. If it flows freely you can assume that the water pump is bad. If thats the case it's best find someone to replace the unit the pump can be replaced but you need tools to do so and you did not state if you had any. thanks for using fix-ya.
IF THE WASHER IS NOT PUMPING THE WATER THROUGH YOUR DRAIN, AND YOU HEAR THE PUMP RUNNING, YOUR DRAIN LINE FROM THE WASHER TO THE SINK DRAIN IS CLOGGED. DISCONNECT HOSE FROM SINK DRAIN AND VACCUM OUT, OR RUN A WIRE OR SOMETHING SMALL BUT STIFF TO LOOSEN THE CLOGGED HOSE. NOW RUN THE WASHER AND ALLOW SOME WATER TO BUILD UP IN THE WASHER, IF WATER ALREADY EXISTS THEN TURN KNOB ON WASHER TO DRAIN. MAKE SURE YOU HEAR WATER DRAINING IN SINK AND PROBLEM SOLVED. IF THE PUMP MOTOR IS NOT TURNING AT ALL , BUT YOU CAN HEAR IT ENGAGE, THEN TURN WASHER OFF, TAKE FRONT BOTTOM PANELS OFF, LOOK FOR THE MOTOR AND TAKE YOUR HAND AND ROTATE THE MOTOR CLOCKWISE A FEW TURNS AND THEN COUNTER-CLOCKWISE A FEW TURNS, IT WILL FEEL LIKE A DISC IN THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR. IF YOU DON'T FEEL A DISC AT THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR, THEN LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE MOTOR AND YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT LOOKS LIKE SOME BLADES. NOW TAKE A SCREWDRIVER AND ROTATE IT CLOCKWISE AND THEN COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. MAKE SURE YOU GET SOME ROTATATION WITH EITHER METHOD THAT YOU HAVE TO USE. YOU WILL FILL RESISTANCE AT FIRST, BUT KEEP TRYING TO TURN THE MOTOR. AFTER GETTING IT TO MOVE, TURN THE WASHER ON NORMAL CYCLE AND ALLOW TO RUN. IT SHOULD DRAIN WITH NO PROBLEMS. REMEMBER THIS IS JUST BUILD-UP INSIDE THE WASHER AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE PUMP AREA. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BREAK IT LOOSE. IT MAY SOUND LIKE A HARD TASK , BUT IT IS QUITE EASY. YES IT IS WORTH FIXING, BECAUSE IT WILL COST YOU NOTHING. IT TOOK LONGER FOR ME TO TYPE THIS THAN TO FIX YOUR PROBLEM. TO KEEP THIS PROBLEM FROM COMING BACK, OR COMING BACK MORE OFTEN, ALWAYS SCRAPE EXCESS FOOD IN TRASHCAN AND RINSE THE DISHES OFF WITH WATER BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE WASHER. ALSO PULL THE BOTTOM RACK OF THE WASHER ALL THE WAY OUT AND CHECK THE FILTER SCREEN TO SEE IF IT IS CLOGGED. IF IT IS UNCLOG IT . THIS TAKES APPROXIMATELY 30 TO 45 MINUTES, AND SAVES YOU $$$$.
if hot or both cold and hot fill try to switch the pipes
if not filling it may be a problem with program and or filter blocked
check also the pump
did you check the water is on as sometimes people forget to swith it on
if the motor has carbons as in the washing machine and if they are worn the water will not fill or better the motor is not going to turn and will not pump in water
as it is possible the pump may not work
this will make a sound like emptiness and with air in it
no their is no fuse. sound to me like your motor is not working, however
the pump should still drain out.push cancel only and unit should drain if it does then id say motor bad. you can try to take apart and check motor blade ive seen toothpics, food , other objects hold motor impeller from turning making it seem like its the motor but actually its just stuck..remove btm wash arm and filter cover thentake two or 3 small screws from a plastic cover covering motor impeller, look to see if anything is in their if so remove. warning if you see a white ball down their leave it alone reinstall and see what happens. hope this helps.
f code is a fill fault problem to much or to little water to determine the problem is to hit cancel drain buttons on the front of the machine and wait for cl on the display turn off machine and wait 30 seconds turn back on and the first thing you will hear is the drain motor turn on for 15 sec then you should hear the water filling into the machine if you dont hear water filing then check to see if the valve under the sink is open to allow water to fill machine
Nothing by the sound of it. The humming may mean the main pump is stuck. If you are able, remove the pump & turn the impellor by hand (or screwdriver) just to make sure its free moving. Put it back into machine & see what you get. Could also mean that the capacitor on the main pump (if it is a capacitor start motor) has failed.
