Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Disposal plugged up and water backed up into dishwasher. Cleared disposal and dishwasher drain line. Checked around sump but dishwasher won't pump out. Sounds like pump is trying to run. I can blow air through the drain hose from the disposal and get bubbles in the water. Turned off breaker for 1 min. then tried reset. Can hear pump humming.


Answers :

The pump is humming because its still trying to get all the water out of the unit. Deinstall the dishwasher and pull the entire dishwasher out from under your cabinet. Next step would be to disconnect the drain line from the drain pump and check to assure that there are no obstructions in the line itself to where it connects to the pump if the entire line is free from all obstructions you next step would be to remove the drain pump itself from the unit and assure that not only the impellar is spining inside the drain pump but also that there is no foreign debris stuck inside the pump as well. also before pulling the dishwasher out reassure that there is nothing blocking the drain line to where it goes into the disposal if the drain line is cleared and the pump is cleared you can also bench test the drain pump by taking a extension cord and cutting off the female end of the cord and adding two electrical c-clip connectors to the cord this some call a powered jumper or a suicide wire it allows you to test the drain pump outside of the machine in order for you to see if the impellar is actually moving if you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks Rick

You will have\015\012to take the drain pump assembly apart and clean it completely, after this if\015\012the problem is not solved then the pump motor is bad and needs replacement. Please\015\012get back to me if you have any other questions.

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

GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer.

I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher. When the rinse cycle ends the water pumps out into the garbage disposal like it should, but then water backs-up from somewhere into the bottom of the dishwasher.

It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

I have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water.

I can run the dishwasher on normal, it cycles but I still have stagnat water left beneath the bottom rack. How do I check my pump to see if it is working or could it be a short of some kind?

The problem is a solenoid under the unit. It is a small black cylinder that operates a valve to change from the wash cycle to the drain cycle. You can probably order a new one from Kenmore for pretty cheap. ... Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher will not drain. It appears to us that the pump simply is not pushing the water out. We have disconnected the hoses and then the water drains, but there is nothing clogged up. The garbage disposal works fine. We can hear the pump when we push drain but nothing happens.

My Kenmore Elite UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people

Bosch Model SHV46C03UC/14 Dishwasher won?t drain completely. The drain hose is not kinked or obstructed and it drains into the garbage disposal.

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.

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

Shu9925uc/14 bosch dishwasher leaves standing water in the bottom of the pump. The pump seems to be bad because it wont drain out the back hose. I have run the diswasher full cycle and put the drain hose into the sink to test. It wont drain at all now and I dont hear the pump. Perhaps unrelated: Pump seemed to stop working after the back hose disconnected itself from the back of the unit spilling water all over the floor.

There is gum stuck somewhere in my dishwasher drain line. The water won't go down. I took the inside apart and can see the hole where the drain water goes.

SHU66C05 Unit will not drain at the end of a cycle. I can use the cacel/drain to manually get dishwasher to drain so don't think it is the motor/ drain pump. I replaced the air trap and the hose to the disposal, (neither appeared clogged) so I think it a problem with the swiching board.

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.

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?
