Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Drain problems I have a Kenmore 665.17292992 portable dishwasher. I've changed the filter and the seals however it still does not want to drain. It will drain but extremely slowly and since it's on a timer, it only drains maybe 10% of the water out. My next step was/is going to be the Check Valve... but I am at a loss right now. I thought for sure it would be the filter. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, PM


Answers :

This may not be the solution, but look for an air in-take somewhere on the top/back of the unit. It's probably covered by a stainless steel cover that can be taken off. Unscrew this cover and see if the air intake is blocked with lint. This is usually the cause of dishwahers (whether portable or built-in) failing to drain.

Magic Chef DU4K is not draining all the water. There's at least a gallon of water standing in the bottom. I have cleaned the air gap assembly and drain line completely. They were even sanitized in hot water. I do not hear the water draining like it use to. When it worked properly you could always hear water draining into the GD. Now I can hear any draining. Again, there is no clogging anywhere in the drain line assembly. Is it a bad pump. I don't know where to go next with this.

Please could you tell me which pipe brings water in the salt tank, and what level of water should be visible, How is the water replenished in the salt tank? and how that level is maintained. Would you be kind enough to give me a wate

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

Our dishwasher (a Maytag - MDBH970AW) will not proceed past the intital intake of water. It has done this occasionally in the past, but with repeated attempts to start a wash cycle, it would eventually work and continue to work for some time afterward. However, in the past week, it will not go through a wash cycle. I have ran the water, prior to starting, to ensure that it is intaking very hot water. When it quits, I can push the start button again and it will go through the 2 minute drain c

Cloudy Dishes This condition suddenly started after couple of years. Water heater is 7 yrs old, never drained, therefore I think this could be the problem. I am going to drain it and report. I do have a whole-house water filter which I change out monthly or every other month. My guess is that without it, this problem would have surfaced long ago.

My DX303 is constantly bringing up error 30. I have had it apart, and there are no water leaks. If I pour water into it, it will drain no worries, however it seems like it wants to continuously drain with this error 30. Sometimes it will come good and go through its complete cycle hassle free, but it's not now. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse

When the washer drains it comes out of the, what i thought was just the vent, on top of the sink next to the fouset knob. isnt the water supposed to drain into the existing drain for the garbage dissposal under the sink. we just bought this house with this problem. not sure of the model but figured that the drain would be the same concept.

Frigidaire fdb1500lsfo built in dishwasher. Have had for maybe 3 years. I push the start button, and it starts like usual, filling the tub with water. After filling, it will not do anything for about 5 mins, where then it drains. It seems to go through the whole wash cycle, but after it has pumped the water out. Dishwasher steams all of the dishes, but there is no water in it to wash them with.

We just installed a Fisher & Paykel DD603 dishwasher. Intially it would not drain correctly. And, proceeded to flood the bottom and set off the F1 error code. I dried out the bottom to get the F1 code to stop, which it did. After adjusting the leveling the dishwasher drained both drawers correctly, once. A few minutes after the rinse cycle had finished and the drawers were empty of water the F1 code started again. Now it will not go away unless I unplug the machine. I dried out the bottom very w
