Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher not draining,took side off but cannot get to pipes to clear them, please help!!


Answers :

Have you cleaned out the screen in the bottom of the dish washer. Sometime's food will get in the drain there past screen to stop the drain up. That would be the first place to check.You could use a shop vac to get up excess water to get to drain to clean out inside unit.
\012 If this doesn't help I have included a little information on how to remove dishwasher from cabinet to acess drain line.
\012
\012If you can't acess the drain line you may have to take dish washer loose and slide out to get to it. To do this remove 2 screws that are connected from tabs's near the top of the door under the cbainet top.
\012 Open door and look up and there should be two metal tabs with screws in them holding the washer in place. Next you will need to shut water off and disconnect the water line which will be located near the left front at bottom once you take the removable panel loose.
\012 Also shut power off to washer and you may have to disconnect the power supply if it isn't enough wire to pull unit out. If you if has enough wire and water line you maybe able to get it out without disconecting them.
\012 On the back side of the pump the drain line is connected to it. You may be able to take it loose from underneath, not much room if it can be taken loose with unit in place .
\012 Anyway I hope that I have included something that maybe of some help to you.

Hi I have a Siemens SE26T252GB/01 dishwasher which won't drain. (The "check water" light comes on). I have checked all the filters/drains and I think the fault is the drain pump which I would like to replace. I can remove the side panels but cannot remove the base to get access to the pump.

I am not getting any water out of the bottom spray arm in my bosch SGS47E02GB35 dishwasher. I have cleaned out the plastic pipe assembly on the left hand side of the machine and the plastic tubes that sit to the right of the pipes. I have blown through many of the other pipes to and dislodged quite a lot of debris which has now been cleared out of the machine. The machine completes its cycle and water comes out of the upper spray arm (there may not be as much water coming out as there should be)

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc
