Those are the only two possibilities that I can come up with to explain how those two items on the left managed to get around TWO screens and work their way into the bowels of the dishwasher and into the impellers of two different water pumps.
We had a glass frying pan lid shatter into a thousand pieces here about a year ago or so and plugged one of the water pumps up solid. I had to take the thing apart and use my shop vac to get it all out. Apparently there was one shard hiding out somewhere that managed to work it’s way back down in there.
That little plastic nipple thing however, is a complete fucking mystery to me.
I have no idea where it came from or what it went to and I also have no idea how it managed to get past the screen because it is literally bigger than the openings in it.
It did though and it stopped the impeller solid.
The damn dishwasher wouldn’t drain so I had to go down to Horror Fright and get a little cheapie $7 hand pump and suck all the water out and pump it into the sink, tear the damn dishwasher out of the cabinet again and flip it over to get at the water pumps.
Imagine my surprise when I find that shit down in there.
I did learn something new however.
Because I am just barely domesticated and not familiar with the inner workings of such an infernal machine, I thought it was still messed up when I put it back together and gave it a test run.
An hour and forty five minutes later, the thing acted like it was stuck in the Wash Mode so back to the internet I went trying to figure out why.
Come to find out even on the Light Load setting the fucking thing takes TWO FULL HOURS to run one cycle.What kind of bullshit that is is beyond my reckoning abilities but I turned it on this morning and just let it go, had to run an errand and when I got back it said it was done finally.
So I screwed it back into the cabinet, mounted the kick panel underneath,filled it back up with the pretty much clean dishes that were in it that I had taken out and now I am running another test cycle
Fucking thing anyway.
Like I don’t have enough shit to do as it is.
