My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help? Thanks.


In the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a screen. Remove it and clean it and the drain underneath it. Make sure the POWER IS OFF before you start. ... Dishwashers

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out. The intake/drain light starts blinking mid way into the dishwashing process. The dish washer fills up, rinses, drains, water is hot, everything seems to function just fine.

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with

Is it common for Kitchenaid dishwashers to have water pooling inside them? It's almost like the valve for water coming in isn't shutting all the way...in the middle of the day, we'll find water inside the dishwasher...it drips out the front when you open the door...but when you turn it on, it doesn't have any problem draining the system...mysteriously, we find water in the bottom...what's up?


There is a rubber flapper valve that keeps water from running back into your dishwasher. It's a $5.00 part, but it's a bear to get to,\015\012\015\012You have to pull the drain pump to access this flapper.\015\012\015\012Also ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP02FRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

Won't drain I'm helping my daughter long distance,their dishwasher won't drain. I had her remove the course strainer to check the well for debris. She said she cannot get in it because the sprayer is in the way. How is the sprayer removed to access the drain well in the Maytag DWU dish washer?


In most cases the blockage is at the end of the drainhose, where it connects th the "peatrap", simply removing the hose clamp, then hose and inspecting. If no blockage found there you will need assistance. If you want, you can funnel your hand over t ... Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher

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.

When washing dishes, the washer drains okay at the end of the cycle. However, ir seems that for some reason in the mornings we are finding water in the bottom of the dishwasher--sometimes so much that some has leaked out to the floor.

I cannot find a relevant wiring diagram online and therefore cannot tell which is the correct way around. I then guessed and re-assembled it anyway, and as you might have g
