Dish washer When i turn on the dishwasher as soon as it cycles i have water coming out of the air vent on top of the sink. it is connected to thegarbage disposal

The overflow air drain on top of the sink that is connected to two hoses under the sink is leaking. It leaks out the top onto the counter. I took it abart but am afriad I did not put it back together right. There is a rubber ring that I think must be for sealing and I put it directly on the counter and then screwed down the air valve over this and water s coming out of the air flow valve and all over the counter.

Leaving more water in than bottom than used to. I cleaned the silver cap on top of the sink (overflow or air)? Water comes out the cap which enters into the sink. Just a little bik. I recently replaced the old and my wife think started then. I install new host from dishwasher up to the plastic "Y" the silver cap sits on above the sink. Any suggestions Mdoel lokks like 665 but there i another number right below FH50022184


Hi, yes this Y and chrome cap is the air vent for the dish washer, If you have any water coming from this cap at all, you do have a blockage in one of the hoses. I'm not sure which one you replaced, but here is how the hoses work.From the dishwasher ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Water comes out of air gap during drain cycle. There is no garbage disposal. Discharge line connects to the tail piece coming from the sink. It has a "y" connection if you will. I put a new air gap on

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).


HI. I agree with your assessment. There may be some sort of blockage within the hose assembly. I recommend to inspect all hoses that correspond to the actual recirculation pump. Check the drain hoses as well. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01ILBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Water escapes on top of sink.


Check all your pipes under your sink to the outside grate for blockages, water does come out at some force, the pump would be faulty if it didn't, if its just volume of water, locate the outlet into another pipe further down the drain away from the s ...

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

My first question is the dishes are not coming out clean. When it was installed they said not to hook it up to the aireator on top of the sink. Is that correct even though in California it is code. We have hard water and that's why we bought this dishwasher. I have changed detergents and that still doesn't help. There is food left on them along with white stuff. help. the dishwasher was bought 12/2010.

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

F1 error code due to water coming over the top of the top drawer at beginning of cycle. Previously, I had this code and followed the instructions found here and resolved the problem (a foreign object had blocked the drain). This is different and I need to find out WHY the water is flowing over the top. Could the top drawer just not be sealing properly when closed?

I have a F&P Model DD602I. I had a repairman out to change out hoses that were bad and now I have this problem: When I just run the bottom unit, it works fine, but a bunch of water ends up in the top unit that I have to drain out. If I just run the top unit, water collects in that unit causing a default. Now if I run both units together and I start the top unit about 3 seconds after starting the bottom unit, both units work fine! When I look at the hoses under the sink, they loop down quite a bi

I have a De Dietrich DV640JE1 built in 45cm Dishwasher, working fine for over 3 years. After replacing the connection under the sink to fix a leak it has stopped working. But I dont think this is related. I run a cycle and it fills water in the bottom of the machine, it drains it out in the end but the 2 arms are not rotating and no water comes out. I checked the arms and they are not blocked. A faint clunking sound can be heard at some part of the cycle. I did also run a cycle with the dr

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ). The high limit switch works and as I said, th

My Miele G575 isn't pumping water through the top. Just stopped. Making all the right sounds and goes through the cycle; including drying without any problems. Water is coming through the bottom but not the top. Tried cleaning the spray arms (they didn't really need it). Time for a repair man or replacement?

After the initial drain cycle when the first rinse cycle starts the water flows up out of the air vent hole at the top of the water manifold and fills the overflow tray in the bottom of the machine causing engaging the micro switch starting the drain pump which then stays on continually.

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any i

We have a miele G665 SC dishwasher. Cycle is fine but when it starts drying water now comes out of the vent on the front of the machine where previously all we'd get was hot air. It creates quite a puddle of water so it's not just the hot air condensating it's more than that. Hope you can help. Regards Paul
