Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool DUL200PKQ1 dishwasher won't drain. There is nothing blocking the drain and I've installed a new chopper-impeller kit. What's next?


Answers :

Hello there
\015\012during the extraction cycle their is a drain solonoid valve that is supposed to open and let the water out, and the extraction pump will pump it out, so knowing this first when the unit gets to the point where it is supposed to drain listen carfully and see if you hear any clicking and if so good the solonoid is getting power next listen and see if you can hear the pump starts to hum if it does i would have to suggest that the solonoid is probably bad solonoid valves normally fail in the closed position which will not let any water pass thru it ok ?

Check for a blockage or, kink in your discharge hose (make sure the knock out has been removed on your garbage disposal hose nipple where the discharge tube enters it) always happens

My new Dishwasher Won't Drain, ehat to do? I have a GE model GSD2300N00WW dishwasher. A few days ago we noticed that it isn't draining. This dishwasher came installed in our new doublewide mobile home. There is no disposal, the drain hose isn't clogged, there is no air-gap installed, and the sink drains just fine. I have removed the filter and cleaned it (wasn't really dirty). Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello, My GE dishwasher stopped draining. Model Number: VSD2304JOOWW I emptied out the dishwasher of the liquid, removed the cover and checked the filter. (Didn't look bad.) Checked the drain pipe under the sink and there was a little debris (slime) but very minimal. The garbage disposal was installed at the same time as the dishwasher 3 years ago (brand new place). What else could it be? Any advice would be helpful as my new home seems to be falling apart and it is getting pretty e

I have a Bosch Dishwasher- I installed a new garbage disposal and forgot to knock out the drain plug (dumb-i know) and I ran the dishwasher that night- well in the morning I noticed it was full of water and the bottom and the drain was humming. I then realized what I had done- so I knocked out the plug and the dishwasher drained immediately. but now the drain continues to run - even with the door open and I cannot get it off the drain cycle. Any suggestions?

My catering boss has installed a new midi 50 but the drain is to high and it won't drain. I'm I right in thinking this is a manual drain machine without a drain pump.our old machine had a drain pump. Is there any legal height that a commercial dishwasher has to be installed off the floor in regard to health and safety. thanks.


Lower height can be a violation, higher won't be. Pumps are only used to drain in a high volume environment. Many commercial clippers and washers don't have them. ... Dishwashers

I installed a new bocsh dishwasher and garbage disposal. The water is not draining. I routed the drain hose on the floor rather than looping it up the back of the dishwasher, due the short lenght of drain hose.


If at least one part of the drain hose is not at least 19 inches off of the ground the dishwasher will not drain properly. I would actually put a loop in the drain hose if possible. This will help with draining. ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support
