Hi, Im Daniel and welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your dishwasher, Hopefully i can help you on this.

You may get an offer for a phone request, Now im afraid i dont do them as i only do the online chat so if you dont want the phone request then just ignore it.

Once its filled with water and when it should be washing do you hear a slight humming noise from the bottom?

Also not sure what part you mean by impeller jar.

Regards

There is no sound at all

Ok so it just fills with water and just stops?

It fills with water
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 days ago.

Ok so it fills with water and just sits there doing nothing?

In this case its usually down the wash motor as once its filled with water the wash motor should kick in.

As its not then the wash motor needs checking and replacing it faulty.

So if you are looking at fixing yourself then you need to access the motor underneath and check this and see if theres any blockage in there or if the impeller is jammed.

The impeller is new
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 days ago.

So you have replaced just the impeller and not the complete motor?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
That is right
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 days ago.

Ok its usually the motor itself thats faulty rather then the impeller if its not blocked.

So it may need a complete wash motor replacing on this.

How do l access the wash motor
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 days ago.

Sorry a bit confussed here as you say you have replaced the motor impeller and now asking how to access the motor.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I replace the impeller only
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I did not replace the motor
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 days ago.

Ok when i said check the motor and impeller in there you replied back the impeller is new so i thought you had already replaced the impeller.

To access the motor this is located under the dishwasher so you need to lie the dishwasher on its back and remove the base cover.

Once this is off you can access the wash motor from there and swap it out.
