Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Diswasher is not draining. The bottom is full of water. What is the problem, how do I correct it?


Answers :

Always when posting make and model are very helpful. most likely there is something blocking the drain ports on the basin. the most common article would be the clear wrap of a tv dinner.. or something like that .. or a paper that was surrounding a can or bottle that you put thru your dishwasher cycle. most often it is reocmmended not to wash your recycling in the dishwasher as this is a common problem that can ruin your machine. is it new ? is this the first time using it? who installed it. would be my next questions and if it is any of the above then chances are someone didnt uncap and port for drainage... if you have used it before and now all of the sudden it is blocked then it is something like a paper or clear plastic blocking your drain ports at the base in the middle of the dishwasher you will see a grate with holes if they are blocked it will not drain.

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

Water remains in the bottom of the diswasher after the cleaning cycle has completed. We recently had a new kitchen faucet and garbage disposal installed. The dishwasher also hums during the dry cycle, I never noticed this before. Are these problems related? Do I need to get a repairman out here to fix the problem or can I do it myself? Thanks, Robin Pomazal Naperville, IL

Diswasher A couple of days ago my dishwasher would not start, there are lights on the front panel and it starts a washing programme but doesn't actually wash anything. I removed the filter from inside the dishwasher and it is full with water, it seems like there is a blokage somewhere. Would a blockage cause the diswasher not to start. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

We have a 12 year old kitchen aid diswasher model kudpo1ilbs2. It is not cleaning the dishes. Everything is loaded correctly and the proper cycle and soap is being used. We have had no problems until the last 2 - 3 months when a greasy food film is now appearing on the dishes. Some food is left on but not a great deal. The question is what could be wrong and what kind of cost are we talking? We are trying to make an informed decision as to whether fix or buy new. Thank you in advance

Whirlpool dishwasher, model DU1050XTPQ1, type 575-0; problem: showing no sign of power to unit and bottom of dishwasher is full of water---it apparently stopped during cycle. Is there a reset button?

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

We have a Bosch Model SKT5102GB/07 and the problem is as follows; we load the dirty washing and start the washing process, the machine then goes through the full cycle of wash. Once finished you open the door and notice that the washing is still dirty and a large pool of water is laying in the bottom of the machine.
