Question and Answers

Q:

I have a GLDB653AB2 dishwasher and have replaced the drain pump but there is still a lot of water that is not draining now what can it be ?

A:

That's great to hear that you were wiling to change the pump on your own. I was able to find further information upon what else can be causing it from draining. The link down bellow had a similar question, perhaps the response will help you understand a little bit more on the mechanics of the unit.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. I must assume the glass trap and the soil filters are clean. I must assume you're finding water left in the bottom of the tub right after it completes a drain cycle and not hours later.

Since you have already replaced the drain pump and it's still leaving water and can't see it being a problem with the drain pump, it sounds more like a partial blockage somewhere in the drain hose between the drain pump and where it enters the drain pipe under the sink or partial blockage in hose between the drain pump and the sump.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

The melted spray arm and cups are most likely the result of a broken water heat delay thermostat. There are two such delay thermostats. The dishwasher has one thermostat for wash and one for the rinse cycle.

If these thermostats fail then the dishwasher would stall in the water heat area. This sometimes happens but it doesn't usually result in melted spray arms and dishes.

The element is protected by a hi-limit thermostat which should protect the dishwasher from overheating and melting dishes.

So far there may be as many as three failed thermostats.

The leak from the bottom of the door is the most important problem right now. The worst case would be a hole melted in the tub. If the spray arm and cups are melting then a hole in the tub is possible.

Make a visual search and check for damage to the tub or gasket.

Try holding the door tighter and see if the leak stops.

I'd suggest a technician check and fix the problem with the thermostats and the stalling in water heat. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears�s technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

You should first try and find the cause of the leak. Leaks can be difficult to pin down sometimes.

The melted spray arm might be spraying water in the wrong place causing the leak.

If the tub has a hole then replacing the dishwasher is a better option than repair.

I hope this gives you some ideas of what you're dealing with and what to check.

Give me a reply with any additional details for further assistance and I'll help you resolve this problem.
