Answers :

Hi, well usually when a DW will not drain, it has something to do with, the Pump, the outlet hose, or the internal pipes being blocked, or all of them..\015\012
\015\012What you need to do, is check for anything blocking the outlet or pump etc. To do this one must obtain a service manual, for the exact make and model. In these manuals are step by step instructions on how to troubleshoot and remedy common problems.\015\012

It would be helpful in identifying the causes for the problem if you provide the make and model number of the dishwasher.

\015\012It is likely the chopper assembly is clogged which is preventing proper ciruculation of water through the wash arms.

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle

We have a Bosch dishwasher SHX46A06 UC/21. It continually runs. We couldn't find a diagnostic test for our model, but we did for another model. We held down the power scrub and regular wash cycles then turned it on and pressed them again. The delicate/econo light started blinking. Looking at some of the blogs, most often it seems to be the heater or the control panel - does this diagnostic test help to pinpoint what could be wrong? Also, where can we find a good manual for our model - we're havi

My 13 year old Frigidair dishwasher (model FDB221RFR2) is not disolving the soap tab that drops in during the later cycles. We sometimes find the soap sitting on dishes or on the bottom. It appears that there may not be enough water but I'm sure of how much there actually should be. It also appears that the soap may be dropping late but again I'm not sure of when it should normally drop. I checked the inlet value and it appears to be ok. I also checked the timer (to the best of my ability) and i

My Brandt VF300 dishwasher is not draining properly. If I empty the residual water (by hand) I can still use it but the water still remains in the bottom at the end of each cycle. How can I fix this? It's driving me nuts! Also the door is not functioning properly something has broken that supports the weight of the door. It can only be shut completely or open completely! Is there a part that can be bought to fix this?
