GE draining issue.
« on: May 17, 2013, 10:10:47 AM »
 I'm working on a GE dishwasher MOD:GDWT260R10SS, and the problem with it is that it wasn't draining correctly. It's getting 120V to the drain pump, and the drain hose isn't clogged. Also it's pumping some water just not enough you have to run the drain cycle about three times for it to drain out. the drain pump is rated for 30 OHMS but when I checked it it only had 25 OHMS. So I called the drain pump. I was wondering what you thought about that.i worked on a few maytag washers where the pump was pumping, but it was really slow and it didn't have enough volume or velocity.so I'm thinking its the same thing.
