Similarly, you may ask, how much does it cost to replace a motor in a dishwasher?
Circulation pumps and motors are expensive and usually not worth repairing. Most wash motors/electronics (out of warranty) generally can exceed $400-$600 with trip, labor, and parts costs. So do not spend money on a repair to any major part of a dishwasher.
Accordingly, how do I know if my dishwasher motor is bad?
Set your multimeter to the R x 1 setting. Touch each of the meter's probes to one terminal each. Your motor should show little resistance (a reading of zero, or close to zero). Now check the ground connection.
A dishwasher may not be worth repairing depending on what the problem is. If the dishwasher needs something simple but important, such as a door latch or seal, soap dispenser, pressure switch, drain pump or fill valve, repair may be worth it.
