    Default Kenmore Ultra Wash Not Draining

    Model Number: 665.17012401
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 1-5 years

    My dishwasher is probably about 5 years old. About a week ago, it started making a grinding noise when the drain cycle would started, but it eventually went away so I chaulked it up as fixed. Now the dishwasher won't drain at all. If you run it, the dishwasher will shut off when the drain cycle should start leaving the tub full of water. If you hit the "Cancel/Drain" button, it makes a click sound like something is trying to engage then a light hum. I have taken the inside filter apart down to what I believe was the impeller looking for a clog and didn't see anything. I have disconnected the hose that connects to the house drain and it's not clogged at that point. Have I checked everywhere a clog is possible? Does it sound like the drain pump is bad?

    Hi,

    If the drain pump is not jammed up with something then the drain pump is likely bad.

    Drain pump will just twist to come off...power off first!

    Is the only way to tell if the drain pump is jammed up with something by pulling the machine and disconnecting the drain pump as the RepairClinic video for replacing the drain pump shows?

    Visually is the only way to tell.
