After looking at several remedies, I zeroed in on the problem... non-functioning waste water pump. I also noted that the valve flapper was in rough shape so ordered both. Once I got the new parts, I replaced the old ones in less than 30 minutes. When I removed the old pump assembly, I discovered that the four-blade waste water wheel had broken off. For about $75, I repaired what no one in my small rural town could. I think the retail on the dishwasher was somewhere between $300-350, so I figured it was a good deal. Also I scored BIG man points with my wife!
