Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Water is not getting drained from the botom of the machine


Answers :

Hi,

There are several possibilities as to why water isn't draining from your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
The filter is usually at the bottom of the wash compartment. You didn't state which model of dishwasher you have, so please refer to your user manual for instructions for cleaning your filter. If you don't have a manual, please post back here with your dishwasher brand and model number for information on cleaning your filter and where to download a manual if one is available.

\012
\0122. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages both in the end of the hose and at the sink attachment. If there is a lot of dirt in the hose, it may be blocked somewhere further back.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

Hi there My dishwasher (Miele G975 PLUS) drain light keeps coming on and the water won't drain. I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged. I opened up the bottom, and pulled off the drain hose to the disposal, and that had no water in it, so the clog is somewhere before the water gets to the hose. If I run the dishwasher drain cycle, it is not pumping water into the hose. What next?


The clog could be in the hose,or on up in the mouth of the drain,air pressure might dislodge the clog,or dissasible of the drain pan in the machine. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise.

Hi :) We have a Bosch slimline dishwasher type SRS56A02 GB/08 - it doesn't draw in water - the timer counts down but nothing happens. We checked these pages and cleaned the filters on the inlet water line but no change :( I saw that it might be the inlet water valve - is this easy to get to - do we need to take off panels? if so, is there a manual available please? Over the past week or so it had got noiser - it was at its quietest while the water was draining out of the machine.

My chef classic dishwasher is not completely cleaning the dishes. There is no obstruction to the tablet/powder door opening, although there is a small amount of powder left at the end of the cycle. Both top & bottom spray bars are clear & rotate, the water is heating & there appears to be plenty of water getting water into the machine. Drain filters are also clear.

I have an Asko D3230 which has activated what is probably the overfilling protection and the pump continues to run. The overfill activated because we had to pull out the machine to get to something and when putting back in there was a kink in the hose. Then we ran a cycle and the water wouldn't drain out. There is now no kink and we have removed all the water we can find. It is now completely empty but the pump continues to run even when the dishwasher is switched off, e.g. the off switch an
