The Dishwasher will not drain. I found bits of glass (the hard way) while removing the water from the bottom. There is no sound when the drain pump should be active. It is possible, I guess, that the pump is clogged, but with no sound at all, I'm guessing a piece of glass prevented the impeller from moving and either the motor is burned out or (hopefully) there is an internal circuit breaker I can reset.

How hard is it to get to the pump to check? How likely can I fix it without replacing the pump? How expensive would it be to bite the bullet and call an appliance repair person? I'd hate to buy a new unit since this one is only 18 months old.

Thanks everyone.
