After more calmly thinking about it a bit longer I was able to remove the pump and found a replacement one in stock. Have the washer back together now. Peace and harmony prevailing.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. The easiest way to remove the pump on your dishwasher is to uninstall it. First, turn the water and power off to the dishwasher. Then disconnect the drain hose from under the sink. I recommend having towels on hand to soak up the water that will leak out. Then remove the lower access panel on the front of the dishwasher. Next, remove the water supply line and disconnect the electrical. Finally open the door and remove the screws that secure the dishwasher to the counter top. Once they are removed, close the door, and slide the dishwasher out of the hole. To remove the motor tip the dishwasher on to its back. Then disconnect the wires to the motor and loosen the hose clamps. Now place a towel under the motor and disconnect the hoses from the motor. To install the motor reverse the steps above.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. I would need a complete model number to be able to give you a part number of the solenoid. I checked the part number of the motor to other models and was not able to find model with a solenoid. I can give you the instructions for replacing the solenoid. First, make sure to turn the power off to the dishwasher. Then remove the lower access panel. It should have four screws two just below the door and two closer to the floor. Once the panel is off you should see the solenoid on the left side of the pump motor. The solenoid has two wires that need to be removed. Then remove the two mounting screws for the solenoid and unhook the link to the lever. To reinstall the solenoid reverse these steps. I hope this is helpful. If you need to order the solenoid you can check our parts web site Sears Parts Direct .

If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details and a complete model number.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thanks Mark, The model number for the dishwasher is 363.1441590. However, I replaced the motor a couple years ago, so the motor is not the original. I ordered the drain solenoid for my model of dishwasher, but it is different than the one that is on the dishwasher. I'm guessing the reason for that is that the motor is a replacement motor. So what I'm looking for is the drain solenoid that goes with the replacement motor. The part number for the replacement motor is WD26X10013. Would you be able to find the part number for the drain solenoid that goes with that motor? Thanks

Hold off on researching any further. I think I found the solution. There is a bracket for the solenoid on the original model. With the newer solenoid the bracket is integrated with the solenoid. I ordered the bracket; hopefully that will be what I need to make it work. Thanks much.

I would like mention if the old solenoid was melted, you might want to check the voltage to the solenoid. It should only have voltage when the dishwasher is draining. If it has voltage all the time, it would cause the solenoid to melt. If this is the case, the time most likely has fused contacts.

Thanks for the advice. The old solenoid was melted. I replaced the timer as it was getting stuck midway through the cycle. I'm not sure if the solenoid melted before or after I replaced the timer. Assuming it happened prior to replacing the timer, should it be OK now since I've replaced the timer?

A:

That is hard to say if it melded before or after the timer replacement. If you have a volt meter, you can plug the leads into the wire connector for the solenoid and start a cycle. If the meter shows voltage for more than five minutes, the timer is defective.
