PhilR has been visiting and while here, besides talking about Frigidaires (of course!) and checking out our new Whirlpool stacker set, we've been trying to diagnose a problem with our compact 18" GE (Danby?) "made in China" dishwasher. with an old school mechanical timer and on/off dryer switch.

The main pump and inlet valve seem ok, and the timer is working. The problem seems to lie with the Hamming drain pump. It's impeller spins but seems a bit reluctant when disassembled, but doesn't seem to spin when together and powered. The part is # 5304461725. The d/w is model GSM1860NSS. The part is available on the 'net but super expensive. Anyone have a good used one, or know of a reliable discount source? The one cheaper source is a 3rd party drop shipper, are those legit/'safe to use if there's a problem? Seems like there's no parts houses around in town any more. Thanks for help!

Hi Roger, I probably have a good used pump. If you post a few good pictures of the drain pump, thereís quite a bit of interchangeability on these drain pumps. John

I was very surprised to see a pump made by a German company in a Chinese dishwasher!

Drain pump for Chinese 18 inch dishwasher

Hi Roger, itís GE part number WD 26X10021, GE says it is no longer available. It would probably be pretty easy to match something up if I had the old pump.

There is one under that part number on eBay right now for $35 including shipping for a used one, they donít fail that often the most common problem I see with that model dishwasher is there something caught in the pump? Have you disassembled it to see if itís jammed

Let me know if I can help, John

Thanks John...

Phil & I did disassemble it, there appeared to be nothing in it, but he did feel it turned less freely than it should when we re-assembled it again. we're kind of grasping at straws here?

Good evening hi Roger, I assumed you were going to buy the one on eBay. If you want to send me your defective one Iíll see if I can match one up and send it back to you.

I wasn't sure if the eBay one was the correct part. Does it look right (see pics)?

Otherwise if you send your snail-mail add'y to: firesweep (at) verizon (dot) net I'll mail it off to you.

Hi Roger the one on Ebay for $35 looks like the exact one.
