Restart it again maiking sure the DW is level and the hose is good and maybe that checkball in the pump will go back to the correct position after it does a wash. What ya thank?

I can certainly do that.I did run it once after I reassembled it...never did hear the drain pump run or water sounds in the disposal.  I blew the tube out when i had it out and it was clear...same for the drain pump...I suppose I could have reversed the leads on the pump?  not sure if that would do anything.  Everything else worked on the cycle though, all the the electronic lights, fill wash, heat, dry, timer...just not the drain.

Symtom:
Dishwasher will not pump out.
Check the following:
1.Drain restricted
2.defective drain pump
3.air lock in drain hose
4.blocked impeller
5.open windings
6.wiring or terminal defective
7.electronic control board defective

Yup saw that in the repair manual.  How likely is it that the drain pump would go out?  Is that common in these units...or is it more common that the control panel would go out?  As above, I just replaced the dishwasher vent...could the two problems be connected in anyway?

Did you tip the machine over to replace whatever you replaced? Maybe that checkball inside the pump is jammed in a bad position. Have you looked in the pump?

Yes I had the machine upside down.  But the pump was not pumping before that either.

OKay. I tried it again and no luck...won't pump out and the pump motor never runs...I removed the drain motor and applied 120v to it and it does not move. Replace?
