Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher will not drain but you can hear the pump running


Answers :

If you hear the pump trying to do the job but with no result then you must not strain the washer. First of all shut off and get access to the drain, open out the hose and fittings connected to the pump and check for accumulation of waste/dirt. this could have cclogged up the pump. So remove and back flush or clean .Use a jet hose or ari hose to clear out the dirt and confirm the passage. The replace the pump and check out. I am sure it must work. Good day

I have a Jenn-Air JDB9910AWB dishwasher. The problem I am having is everything seems to work fine until the drain cycle. It sounds like the pump is frozen. After selecting the drain button you can hear a click in the control panel followed by a 1-2 second growl in the pump but it doesn't turn or pump. I am assuming the pump runs in reverse for draining? Is it safe to assume the pump is bad?
