I have a new problem with this Kitchenaid dishwasher. The tub gets filled with water but the pump does not circulate the water and nothing comes out of the spray arms. Dishes are dirty in top and bottom rack.

I suspect this is the end of a 2.5 year old dishwasher and it probably needs a new wash pump.

What do I do?

I'd use a multimeter to check for 120 volts at the wash motor after it fills and should be running, if you get 120 volts and the wash motor is not running, then the wash motor is bad.

Here's the wash motor for your model:
Circulation Pump W10902589


Here's the video:


Let us know what you find.

Thanks for sharing this Jake.

This is a significant repair and is the second repair in 3 months after replacing the diverter motor and lower spray arm earlier. I got a lemon KitchenAid unfortunately - am moving away from this to a Bosch.

Ok, but I don't work on Bosch. LOL And having a Bosch repair tech come out is extremely expensive.

I'd get a Maytag! That's what I own!

Thanks for the update!
