Hello all,

I have a problem with my Candy CDI 2010 dishwasher. It is not draining away. I have checked hoses and pumps for blockages but there do not seem to be any. Both drain pump and circulating pump aare moving freely although still have the twang from the motor. I was trying to measure the resistance accross the pump motors to see if they were faulty. The circulationg pump is giving around 55 ohms which i believe is normal. The drain pump however gives 250 ohms......is this too high and indicating a faulty motor....any other way to test it safely.

If you are getting a supply to it, then I would say it is fair to say it is u.s.
stick a continuity tester across the 2 pins on the pump make sure its upluged first it should bleep if its working
