Most likely your transmission is about to fail, Run it into the ground if you can stand the noise. Prepare for transmission replacement. Online applaince parts are usually very helpful. Parts probably $200. plus. If you are tool literate, you may be able to do it. If not I don't recommend. You might want to consider a lightly used replacement, or New.

The pump housing could be clogged with food. You can sometimes Access the strainer from inside the dishwasher. If that looks ok you will need to look at pump below by removing the hose clamps and checking the pump intake. If all that looks good you could have a bad solenoid or pump.

Not spinning

If its a front load, do you know about the clean out drain behind the lower front panel? Get ready with a bucket to catch all the water, lint, money and bobby pins coming at you. Under the door there is a panel, you will need a screw driver to get it off. Under that panel is a knob to unscrew a pull out.

Doesnt agitate or spin.

Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!

You are correct in that the belt seems overly tight. This is what I did.1) Get the belt on the large pully2) Using several ZIpTies every few inches, secure the belt to the pully3) Get a metal hanger and loop it through the belt making a safe handle at the end.4 Cover the handle with a cloth to protect your hands and to also provide grip.5) Have my 300 lb, 6'7" hulk of a son pull as hard as he can while you assist getting the belt on the motor spindle.

NO, after the last rinse and before the final spin the machine pump should pump all of the water out of the machine. most likely the timer.
