I tried to take it apart, clean it an put it back together. In the process I found the valve flapper to be old and in need of replacement and the lower spray arm assembl tabs broke and required replacement of the entire assembly when I only needed the bottom half. I cleaned all hose/wet connections, coated with plumbers grease and put back together. No leaks, drains properly. Took a bit more time than expected due to door within pump housing that was removed for cleaning that didn't want to be put back on.
