Amana Dishwasher circ. pump pulses, does not spray
I have an Amana MOD ADB1400AGW1 that is not spraying water in the wash cycle. Water fills and the drain pump works. Initially after filling the recirc pump made no indication of running or attempting to run, dead quiet. I replaced the pump assembly and now after filling the recirc pump surges, or jogs, momentarily. When it does this sometimes water will squirt out of the bottom sprayer arms but with no force. The duration of the surge is less than a second long, and usually 2 to 4 surges in fairly rapid succession, followed by silence again for some time, then maybe a couple more. It goes through a number of drain and refill cycles if I let it sit as well. Just to see, I hooked the old pump to steady 120v 60hz and it seems to turn away just fine. What am I missing?
