Thank you for the guide. I took out the circulation pump and from what I can tell, it's not spinning too freely. I use a long screwdriver, and even though I am spinning near the center of the impeller (that's all I can reach), I can definitely feel a little resistance. Any way to open this thing up?? I also want to power it up outside of the dishwasher and just see if it spins on its own, but not sure where to apply power. I see there's a heating element, with red/white and purple lead, but there is also a 5 wire connector. (blue, grey, red, white, black) of which blue/grey is (i think) the thermal protection sensor. Any help?
Also any idea how to take this thing apart and just give it a cleaning?? Please see the pics attached.
