Usually this is a clogged drain pump especially if you heard that sound but it was faint.

If you are just a little handy this part is a pretty easy to replace component.

I can also provide the best place to order the pump.

I will be here to help you make the part replacement dont worry.

The best place to order a new drain pump is:

Since there are so many different ones out there, I would call espares with the part # and let them pick the part for you so you are sure to get the correct pump the first time lol ;-)

Brush light flashing again
Expert:  Michael replied 8 months ago.

Hi, ok, the problem is that there is either a clog in the drain pump as I mentioned earlier, or a clog in the drain line going to the sink trap.

I can walk you through the repair it really is easy ;-)

All you will need are a few basic hand tools to fix this one.

Please rate kindly at this time, no cost for that. But it ensures I can remain with you until we have this fixed.

I would pull off the drain line to the sink trap from the dishwasher and see if it is gunked up with grease or food particles.

Please rate kind;-)

You wont lose me;-)
