15-mo old Whirlpool Circ pump troubleshooting
Model Number: WDF520PADM3 Brand:
1 - 5 years
I'm trying to decide between DIY or hiring someone:
My dishwasher is only 15 months old, and the spray arms won't spray or move. It fills, drains, and heats, but during the part of the cycle where I should hear spraying, I don't hear anything from the circulation pump even with the kick panel removed. A few months ago my water heater started shedding particulate which ended up blocking my kitchen faucet, and I needed to replace both the kitchen faucet and water heater.
I'm wondering if the circulation pump got blocked from that, and could possibly be cleaned out, or if it's broken and needs replaced. Is there anything I could test to determine that?
My biggest worry is that I DIY the circulation pump only to have it not work and need to call a repairman anyway.
