Default Dishwasher not draining
Model Number: fdb125rhs2   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dishwasher cycles normally until the drain cycle. It then is quiet till the timer starts the rinse cycle. I cleaned the trap which had a couple pieces of glass in it.( don't put your hand in water you can't see into) but it looked clean. The impeller seemed to spin freely. do i need to install a new drain pump? is it an easy repair? should I look for a new unit. Thank you in advance for your help.

Do you not hear the drain pump run at all? If not, and you have a meter you can see if you're getting voltage to it when it should be. If you have power to it and it isn't running, it's bad. Also make sure the hose to it, and from it are clear. Below is the part # along with a link to your model for reference.

Part number: AP2109108

Thank you, I do not have a voltage meter. Can I use the cheep one to test outlets. Also. Do I need to pull the unit out to do this. and is the pump easy to replace. One more. If the hoses are clogged, would the pump at least hum while it is trying to drain the unit?

One that will test outlets should work. You'll have to be able to reach back in there to make the checks, it's hard for me to judge for you whether you can do that without pulling it out or not. Changing the pump wouldn't be considered real difficult. Granted, if the unit was removed from under the countertop it would make it much easier.

Yes the pump would still hum if the hoses were clogged.

Sorry, but it's hard to give definitive answers in this type format.

Frank, I pulled the unit out,turned to the drain cycle and the pump was humming. I then took the pump out and pulled a stem out of the impeller area. reinstalled the pump and it seems to be working fine. Thank you for your help.

You're welcome, and I'm glad you got it going.
