The pump ejects the water from the dishwasher through the drain hose.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Dishwasher would not drain. I confirmed it was the drain pump by starting the DW and pressing reset 10 sec. later. When functioning properly, pump will engage and drain the DW. In my case, nothing except a blinking light for 30 sec. I turned off power at circuit breaker, remove base plate (no need to pull dishwasher), disconnected pump from hose (DW side) and caught water, disconnected hanger hook from DW (requires a little twisting), disconnected on house drain side, marked two sets of wires (1,2), removed wires by shoving nail into coupler (otherwise hard to disconnect), and removed pump. Repeat in reverse order to connect new pump.

I unplugged the fridge before I did the repair. Took out the ice bin, then I took out the two screws located at each side of the plate that holds the dispenser motor using a nut driver. I then disconnected the whole assembly from the wiring harness in the freezer. Took out the two screws (one on top and one on the bottom) that holds the plastic back cover of the assembly,popped out the back cover. I used the hack saw to cut the shaft of the motor because the auger drive has a reverse thread and won't come off from the motor. I then took out the three screws that hold the motor to the plate and disconnected the wiring that's attached to it noting which wire go where. Put in the new motor, the auger drive, reconnected the wires, put the back cover on, reconnected the wiring harness to the freezer and attached the whole assembly in the freezer. Done!
First, I pulled out the drain hose under my sink that connected the dishwasher to the disposal and overflow valve. I drained all the water out of the dishwasher and ran it to see if it would drain. It did not. So I drained the water out again and then pushed the hose back in the hole it came through from the dishwasher. My water for the dishwasher is hooked up under my sink as well so I pushed the excess length of hose through the same hole to give me enough play to get the dishwasher out. Other people may need to disconnect the water first, but regardless, turn off the water at source under the sink.After concluding that the drain pump was running at the end of the wash cycle (I could hear a slight buzzing sound), I figured that the timer was working as it was telling the pump to run and determined that the pump was not working properly.I unscrewed the screws that held my kick plate on below the dishwasher door. Turned off power. Took a digital pic of the wiring so I could refer to it when putting back in. Unhooked 3 wires that supplied power.Then I unscrewed the screws that held my dishwasher under the countertop (2 small screws).I gently pulled out the dishwasher until it was free of the space it was in under the counter. I put two 3ft 2x4's on the kitchen floor with a few towels under to soak up the extra water that was unable to drain ealier. I turned the dishwasher on its side so that the bottom was now visible.I then took a digital pic of the broken drain pump all hooked up so I could refer to it when putting the replacement in. After removing the two wires hooked up to the pump and loosening both sides of the pump from the drain and drain hose, I removed the broken pump.From that point, I installed the new pump and tightened both ends securely, hooked up the wires, picked up the dishwasher on it's bottom, hooked up the three wires for power supply and gently put dishwasher back under counter. I had to pull the drain hose gently and water hose so they would not kink behind the dishwasher. I hooked up the drain hose to the disposal and overflow valve, turned on the water and the power and ran a test cycle. Good to go!
i looked on this website and found out which part was the drain pump. the pump was fastened to a drain hose, the dishwasher and power supply. unhooked power supply, noting which color wire belonged where. loosened the hose from the pump, got the new pump, installed. viola!
I had to pull out the built-in dishwasher by removing the top two screws and pulling it out. I unhooked the fill tubing and drain hose. I removed the drain hose hose clamps pulled the hoses off and replaced the new part by attaching the hoses w/ clamps and pluging in the two small electrical wires and it was done. worked great! This was the only site that I was able to find MY EXACT model and the part was a perfect match!!
i removed the screw holding the drain pump to the wire that held the pump to the dishwasher frame, i then unscrewed the hose clamps that connected the pump to the drain hose and the other part of the dishwasher i disconnected the wires , put the other pump into place wired it up and now my dishwasher is as good as new .
