Customer Question

Hi. I have a DSFN 1532w. No water. Hold the cancel button and wash and dry button light. Saw a previous thread for a different model...taken the white plastic bottom bit off but there's just another gray plastic panel...was hoping to find a drain pump? Continuous Low rumbling sound but no water...any ideas? Thanks

Hi, welcome to Just answer .... I hope you would have tried to clean the pump filter and, also would have removed the mesh filter and cleaned the inside of the impeller cavity. If you have already cleaned the filters then you need to check drain pump assembly.

I hope you have already removed the kick plate, now you need to pull out the dishwasher. Make sure your dishwasher is unplugged before you attempt any repairs.
You would be able to see drain hoses connected to the drain pump and there would be a drain motor in near vicinity.
You would now need to remove the hoses and check for any possible blockage. You can twist the pump and remove it.
Try and check whether pump impller turns fine and if it is resisting turns then it means drain pump needs to be replaced.
Now put the hoses and pump together and, plug the dishwasher and check.

Good luck

Hi. Taken the tube off that feeds water in...that's fine. How do we remove the gray waste pipe pump? Appears to go inside the machine...these r the only 2 pipes
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I've attached a pic of the back of the machine
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

It needs to be removed from the inside. If I'm not wrong this grey pipe is connected with pump using a clamp, so, don't try to pull it from outside. Please check the clean filter and check for any blockages in drain pump assembly.

The inside of the dishwasher is a sealed unit...can't find any point to access the pope...should I remove the silver plate on the back of the machine on the outside?
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

The picture you have attached is back of the dishwasher. You can gain access to pump by removing front kick panel of the dishwasher. And, then follow the steps in my initial post to remove the pump.

This is the front...kick plate removed...grey plastic panel remaining...can't see any pipes??
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

Ok, I thought you would have removed the grey one as well. There are two clips and I believe two screws underneath hold this facia plate, please remove it to access the pump.

Had to go in underneat the machine...removed the gray pipe from the pump...can't physically see any blockages...how can I check for blockages further along the pipe??
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

the pipe looks pretty clear unless there's something deep inside. Try and pour some water inside the pipe and check if it goes through the other end. The other thing to check is the filter attached on top of the drain pump assembly and the impeller assembly on top of motor.

Unfortunately, put it all back together and is still not working. Thank you for trying but think will have to call someone now
