Answers :

It sounds like you have something in the small water pump at the base of the dishwasher that pumps the dirty water through the hose into your sink drain. Remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, unscrew the hose clamp and pull off the hose, then unscrew the pump so u can inspect it. Usually you will find a chunk of glass, or bone or other debris which is blocking the pump partially.

Our Hotpoint Dishwasher Model HDA200X-73BA has two little white plastic pipe stubs poking out of the bottom of the dishwasher. During one of the cycles--(I don't think it is the drain cycle)-- some water is being released from one of these pipe stubs and then it stops and the other one runs some water. They each only run for a few seconds, but the water is just running on the floor. These little pipe stubs are about one half inch in diameter and project out of the bottom of the dishwasher about

Hi, I'm having trouble with my maytag jetclean eq. I've removed everything down to what I think is the drain impeller and can't figure out how to remove what seems to be this last piece. Fwiw, the trouble is dishes are dirty/cloudy, soap dispenser is still half full, and there is an inch or two of water in the bottom, like it never fully drains.

New SHE4AM16UC, professionally installed eight months ago. Worked fine with very light usage until now. Dishwasher starts normally but stops and signals "clean" after less than five minutes on any cycle. One inch of water in bottom that (I think) drains when a new cycle starts. Soap tablets are not ejected from compartment.

I have a kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, Model 15825691. We were recently hit by lighting. Once hit, the dishwasher started up. Since then, all cycles work, however, at the end of any cycle, the dishwasher continues to run and fill the bottom of the washer up to about two inches and then cuts off, so when we open the washer, there is approx 2 inches of water inside no matter what. I have pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button, in which drains the water after two minutes, but when that is finished, the

Dishwasher won't drain. (Kenmore 3380957Rev A) It's been not draining that well for a couple of months, but then a couple of weeks ago, it just won't let the last inch of water out. --I can't see in the center area under the plastic to see if something is clogging it. --I tried running it on three different cycles to see if that changed anything (Pots and Pans, Normal, and Water Miser). No difference. It never seems to overflow, but when the cycle is over, it has a couple of inches of

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

When we do not use the dishwasher for a week or more water seems to back up into the tub. The water has a foul smell to it and can be as much as an inch or so deep. The dishwasher drain hose is attached to an insinkerator disposal. By the way this dishwasher is only a couple of months old and we have had to have it serviced three times. No one has been able to explain the water accumulation and it can not be demonstrated unless the washer sits unused for a while.

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB7130AWB started making a grinding noise tonight during drain cycle. We just had some work done on the sprinkler system and the water main to the house as well as the check valve for the sprinkler system have been turned off and on a lot the last two days. I noticed that we had some dirty water come out of a sink in a bathroom, after that repair. Don't know if that could be related to this problem but it was worth mentioning.


Shut off water to the machine, remove the hoses at the machine and inspect & clean the mesh filters in the water inlets. If dirt did get into the line, it would be from the water main work, not the sprinkler work.It doesn't hurt to clean the ... Maytag MDB7130 Dishwasher

I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it.

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I went online to the Bosch website for a installation manual and it describes this hose as a air venting hose. Does the end attach anywhere or does it just hang loose on the unit. My husband detached it from its original position and thought it was part of the water line. HELP!
