Underneath the drum, behind the bottom face plate, you will find the solenoid with a return arm and spring. It is close to the front of the dishwasher- Just remove the spring and replace it with a new one using needle nose pliers to reconnect. If your dishwasher is filling with h2o and then draining the water without washing this could be your problem. This spring holds the lifter arm, inside the bottom of the drum, in the right possition to make the dishwasher (wash). A cheap fix as art was less than $4.00. Happpy Fixing!
