MY DISHWASHER AIR GAP IS SHOOTING WATER INTO THE KITCHEN SINK WHY ? ... Dishwashers

Hi. I have a 3 year old LG dishwasher. It will not drain. Display shows OE. I completely cleaned the drain assembly inside the DW. I checked the discharge line, it is completely clean. I disconnected the drain line from the air vent assembly at the sink and ran the DW, still will not drain. I disconnected the discharge pump wires and ran current directly, the pump works. I replaced the main control PCB, still will not drain. Please advise. Thanks

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?

LG LDF6810ST had OE error. Disassembled found no obstructions blew air through and vacuumed hoses to air gap and to disposer, no obstructions. Never heard pump run when starting cycle, so replaced drain pump. Still doesn't run. Looked at the service manual, and the only other suggestion is repair circuit? Is this the circuit on the bottom right of unit or the pcb up top? Wires and connections all look fine. What else could it be. Any suggestions appreciated!

Whirlpool dishwasher will not drain. All hoses are clear. I replaced the air gap too. The dishwasher will drain into a bucket when I detatch the hose from the air gap, but not into the drain/disposal when I replace it.

I am replacing the drain hose on my LG Dishwasher LDS5811BB. The new hose they gave me has an additional piece connected onto the hose. I don't know what it is or what it is for. The original drain hose was composed soley of a gray hose with the to end connectectors. This new hose is similar with an additional white, hard plastic, U-shaped hose with a black hose extending off the end of the U-shaped end. Is this an air gap extension, and if so, what do I connect it to or can I cap it off?

I have a Craftsman 2700 psi pressure washer with a Briggs and Stratton 850 engine (80 year anniversary special addition) . It is about 2 years old and used very little and will not start. I filled it with fresh fuel and checked the oil. I also replaced the spark plug and air filter. I checked the fuel line thinking it may not be getting fuel, but there is no obstruction from the tank to the end of the fuel line. I am out of TS options short of taking it to a service center.

There is gum stuck somewhere in my dishwasher drain line. The water won't go down. I took the inside apart and can see the hole where the drain water goes. I disconnected the drain hose under the sink. I got the water to drain out when there was alot in there, but now it won't drain again. I blew compressed air from a compressor backwards through the hose and it makes a big splash and bubbles inside the dishwasher, but the water still won't go down. I put Boiling hot water and vinager in there t

Our GE model GSD4320Z00B is having a problem with the drain system. I've run the unit in the test mode and it does pump the dishwasher down. The problem is the unit does NOT pump down during a normal wash cycle. The fact that the unit works in test tells me it is not the pump. I've checked all the hoses and drain paths and there are no obstructions, again verified by the fact it works in test mode. Any test that can be used to determine the problem besides replacing parts one by one?

I have model KUDS301VBL2, we have noticed a build up of sludge at the lower front of the dish washer, below the door. We have to keep an eye on it and wipe it off often. could this be caused by a faulty disposal unit in the dish washer. I have double checked the level from front to back and all the drain hose and air gap. I have found no problems.

Kenmore 665.16762000 We were washing dishes the other night and my husband walked into the kitchen to find water pouring out of the "air gap" in the sink. Now we cant get the unit to come on. Ive tried some of the various combinations of button pushing to re-set, but so far still not operating. I am thinking it may be the "thermal fuse" due to some other questions here, but how can i confirm.... and the biggest question... how much is that gonna cost me to replace if i do it myself?

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher.

It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye
