Question about Dishwashers
I checked the capacitor wiring - OK.
I pulled the motor to see if anything was obstructing it. Problem is I don't know what it should look like. pulling the motor was easy. one screw and it twisted right out. the shaft on the motor may have disintegrated. not sure. the tip of it looks like a sharpened pencil.
There is a round plastic cover that covered the entrance to the inside of the housing. I pried it out, it has a heavy O ring around it. the pieces on the inside fellout, to not sure of the order. but there is what appears to be an impeller which also has a shaft just like the one coming out of the motor, that looks like a sharpened pencil. the other end of this impeller has a little white ratchet that looks like a large version of the ratchet you find inside a ball point pen. It appears that the end opposite the ratchet is broken.
