    Default Whirlpool dishwasher fills but does not wash

    Model Number: GU2451XTSB0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher (model GU2451XTSB0) that fills and drains but does not wash. It hums when it seems like it should be spraying water. I disassembled washer and checked for something jamming chopper blade. It spins freely. I replaced pump motor about a year ago because of noisy bearing. I was wondering if this pump could have gone bad already or is it something else?

    It's not the drain pump motor but the circulation motor. Remove the lower panel and unplug or remove power from the machine. Take the wires off the capacitor that is attached to the motor and check for any corrosion on the terminals. replace the wires and try it. If no go, replace the circulation motor:

    Thank you Rick for your reply. It was the circulation motor that I replaced about a year ago. Today I removed the pump and unplugged everything and plugged it back in and put it back together, still fills and drains but instead of washing it hums. I was able to spin impeller by hand easily.
