Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

After adding Jet Dry to the dispenser my dishwasher started to leak water and suds from the bottom of the door. I now will not drain completly.


Answers :

BE Sure you are not using detergent that has the softener/rinse agent\015\012already included. The electrasol 3in 1 tablets will cause an over\015\012abundance of suds if you use the two together. The water becomes\015\012very soft. You have locked up the pump with suds.
\015\012use 1/2cup salt to flush followed by 1/4c oil.

Hello, I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model FDB750RCC1. It will not fully drain. There is water in the bottom of the unit after the cycle is complete. As it is not full of water or leaking out of the unit when I open the door I am suspecting it is the pump that has broken? (the water must be draining to the overflow point and then stopping as there is nothing pumping it) Any thoughts or ideas for me anyone? Am I on the right track?

The dishwasher top drawer is leaking all over the floor during the cycle.

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model DA 6141. For some time now it has not been completely discharging the water at the end of a cycle. But sometime it does completely dicharge.Two days ago it started leaking water from its bottom at the end of a cycle.I tried to locate the leak but was unsucessfuly. All the external plumbing is ok andf there is no leak from the discharge pipe nor water intake pipe. So perhaps its something to do with the water pump?

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.

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't.

My bosch dishwasher runs fine, cleans fine, drains fine....but after it has been just sitting for a while, the bottom very slowly fills up with water. Each time we run the machine the water level drains back to the normal amount in the bottom of the washer after the cycle is complete. The problem is if we are away for a few days, the bottom fills up and overflows onto the floor.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard - will not drain at end of cycle. After cycle is complete, water (not clean) sits at the bottom of the washer but I still unload the dishes and then turn the cycle dial around again - going past all the water heating and filling and washing - and land on the drain cycle, it will drain. Any ideas why it will not drain when I let a cycle run, but will drain once I cycle it through to the drain option?

I have a bosch dishwasher SHE43C06UC22 (non-LED version). It's stuck in the drain cycle and continues to run even when opening the door (it should stop, but it doesn't). As a test, I poured a large glass of water in the bottom of the dishwasher and it drained it into the sink as it should, but it continues to run in the drain mode with no water in it. I've heard I either have a float stuck or an emergency drain switch or leak somewhere causing the dishwasher to continue in the drain mode. Ho

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water.

I have the GLD 4560 NSS and it is no longer draining. The tub stays completely full. When you start it, the water in the tub is reused then it does not drain. No noise or anything when the draining or filling should actually be taking place. Hoses are not kinked, no leaks, no air vent, it drains directly to the disposal. Everything seems OK but it is full of water. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
