This video provides step-by-step instructions for replacing the drain pump on Whirlpool dishwashers. The most common reason for replacing the drain pump is if the dishwasher won’t drain and the drain pump proves to be defective, or if it makes noise and fails during operation because it gets clogged and you are unable to clean it.

Step By Step Instructions

1
As with any repair, be sure to turn off the power to your dishwasher before beginning.
2
To make it easier to access the drain pump, we recommend removing the outer door panel.
3
To do this, remove the screws from inside the door which secure the outer panel.
4
With the screws removed, pull the panel down then lift it up and out.
5
Now rotate the lower access panel fasteners counter-clockwise to remove then pull out the access panel and sound dampening pad.
6
Reach under the dishwasher and disconnect the wire connecter from the drain pump.
7
Now depress the tab and rotate the pump counter-clockwise to remove.
8
Install the new drain pump by inserting it into the sump housing and rotating it clockwise to lock it into place.
9
Connect the wire connecter to the new pump.
10
Reposition the lower access panel and sound dampening pad then secure the panel with the fasteners.
11
Reinstall the outer door panel by first aligning it on the door hinges then slide the panel up and reinstall the screws in the inner panel to secure.
12
You’re now ready to restore power to the dishwasher and confirm that it’s working properly.
