Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

In our KitchenAid dishwasher, there is often a puddle of standing water in the bottom of the washer after the cycle has finished. It never seems to drain and I have to "bail" it out. Is there any easy fix for this problem?


Answers :

Check the drain to make sure its not plugged with food (the most common problem). If the drain is good then check the hose to make sure its not plugged anywhere inbetween the dishwasher and drain under sink. If all those check out, chances are your pump on the dishwasher is gone bad..
Hello. Your problem may have an easy fix. Remove the lower front panel from your kitchenaid. you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver to do this. Once the lower panel is removed you will see where the drain hose connects to the drain pump, in the front left. Unscrew the hose clamp and remove the hose [plan on some water so have a couple of towels handy]. Once the hose is off remove the pump [two screws] and look into it. You will probably find some debris [a chunk of broken glass or food debris], remove it and reassemble. If the pump is clear, disconnect the drain hose under the sink and check the entire length of it and the drain line under the sink. Somewhere there you will find a partial blockage. Regards, Joe

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

Brown scum accumulates under the large circular aluminum plates on the bottom of the drawers. Has to be cleaned out every 1-2 weeks. We have never had a dishwasher that required so much maintenance. We think it is the size of the drain. Can this be fixed by installing a larger drain hose. We have cleaned out the drain hose and it doesn't stop the problem.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

Hello, I had a problem with my Bosch dishwasher not washing properly. I have fixed burnt out wires, replaced the water inlet valve, AND tested with a new control module. Nothing is helping. When I start the cycle, it completes the initial drain and water does flow into the unit for about a minute, maybe a minute and a half. I can hear the clicking of cycle changes but it is not washing. Eventually it will drain the inch or so of water in the bottom, but it never washes. Any help???

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher that is 4 years old. Model No. GLD2440RES1. The problem is that there is a high pitched whine and a "rattatt" sound from the pump/motor when the d/w is running. Not hearing this sound when the d/w is draining. Sound seems to be getting louder. What is the issue and how would I fix the problem. Thank you!


Hello. That sound is coming from the dishwasher's motor. This is a costly repair and honestly not worth doing on a four year old dishwasher. If you do choose a repair, you can purchase a motor for your model at this link ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

Broken Glass Hi! A glass bowl shattered into 10,000 pieces inside out dishwasher. We cleaned out what we could but there is glass stuck in the bottom. It seems like a no-brainer not to run it, but I will ask, will it hurt the dishwasher to run it and let the glass drain out? Is there an easy way I can fix it or do we need to bring in an expert?

Does the small in line rubber valve under the dishwasher in the transition piece to the hose have any real need to go back? and which direction it is cupped slightly. Also are there any assembly instructions? I cant seem to get it back quite right, or a white washer has split. not sure which.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel front- with buttons on the inside top( same as display, and the washing cycle won't start. Water seems to be running into the washer, as I can hear it, but the cycle never starts. Recently, I had clogged garbage disposer issue that has been resolved. The dish washer drains into the disposer, and I had free standing water left behind in the washer for 2days during this time.. Could this be the issue? Can you help me figure out this problem?
