Replaced the belts but won’t drain all the water. The drain hose goes directly into the main sewer line about 7 foot off the floor. The owner claims it has been like that for 22 years but has recently had problems with the machine draining. The machine will pump out water from a small load but not a large load. What am I overlooking?

I have checked and replaced belts. The machine will pump out a small load but will not pump out a large load. I have not yet inquired with the customer as to whether their septic system has been pumped out recently.

Trust me, I worked on these machines when they were in their prime 35 years ago. The pump is the problem.
