Have you ever wondered—for some strange reason—what the under belly of a dishwasher looks like?
Wonder no more:
The new motor arrived very quickly. It only had to come from Jacksonville, Florida.
The old is on the left, the new on the right.
Really, it is not the most convenient appliance to work on. Poor Mike, with all his recent aches and pains—but he got it running although it pretty much killed his Saturday morning.
He spent the rest of the day taking the defective motor apart and problem solving exactly what went wrong. He found the defective part. Next time it will be “much easier” to fix. He also did research on the net to confirm his trouble shooting and find some better method of putting the thing into storage mode.
I would be doing all the dishes in the sink OR buying a new dishwasher. By the way, he did go to an appliance repair place early in the game, but got nothing more than shoulder shrugs. He snatched the motor away and left when one guy took out the “universal tool in one gadget.” Mike is a real problem solver. Nice guy to have around.
