Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dishwasher today.

The drain pump and circulation pump are 2 different pumps on this dishwasher. Your dishwasher fills, drains, and heats--that means your circulation pump is either jammed or failed. You'd have to uninstall the entire dishwasher and tip it on its back in order to access the circulation pump below the tub. Remove the pump and check for debris inside that would jam the pump. If you find nothing, then the circulation pump would need to be replaced. Given the age, I would think it's probably better to just replace the dishwasher rather than repair it if the circulation pump needed to be replaced.

It has done 4 beeps

4 beeps is an error code telling you the circulation pump is bad--nothing you didn't already know.
