Based on some threads and error code 43, my recirulator pump is bad. Are the pumps repairable or rebuidable? I think list price for a replacement is $340. We bought the dishasher on sale for $300.
And (maybe this is a whine) - this is our third dishwasher in 12 years. Is it normal for something to fial every three to four years?

Jeff,
Thanks for your response. Turns out I have had this dishwasher about 5 and a half years, so I guess we are just on the lower range of expected life. Time to go dishwasher shopping. And with a family of 6, I guess we got OK use of it.

For sure ours would get a lot more work when all of the kids where home......funny how things lasted longer and got beat up less when the kids moved out :unsure:
