My kitchen aid dishwasher will sometimes not finish draining at the end of the drying cycle... have checked to make sure that there is no obstructions in the hose and garbage disposal (took drain hose off totally)… when hose was disconnected i poured a glass of water in the bottom and it ran right out thru the bottom of the machine... tried resetting the system using 3 buttons in sequence 3x then the cancel button and also cut power to it.... after sitting for a couple of hours i can press the cancel button and it will drain.... could it be this sensor part or maybe a bad pump??

Hello Bryan and thank you for writing.
It certainly sounds like a faulty drain pump PS11738151 you should check for signs of damage, and replace it if needed. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.
My dishwasher is only 2 years old. After i cleaned the filters and the spray arms the problem started. The machine would fill and drain, but would not wash, most of the time. I did get it to wash a couple of times while trying different cycles, removing and replacing the filters, and running the diagnostic cycle, though i can't say there was any clear cause and effect between what i did and it suddenly working briefly. Now it won't wash at all. Could this be the sensor? Or more likely the motor?

Hello Lee, Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds more like the pump and motor assembly part# W11032770. You can test it with a multimeter to see if it functioning properly. Hope this helps!

What are the ohms supposed to be on the drain pump, and do I need to buy the sensor along with the pump?

Hi Thor, Thank you for the question. The pump shoudl be around 37 ohms. Replacing the sensor would depend on the issue you are having. Hope this helps!
