Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher is not draining. Wet-vac'd all water out cleaned filters still does not want to drain. Less than 2 years old.


Answers :

The pump has gone bad or the drain hose is plugged, or the pump is OK but has gook (technical term) in the impeller. check the drain hose when the washer is supposed to be pumping out. Also listen for a noise. Does the pump sound like it's running? can you hear any water noises? does anything at all come out of the drain line (you may be able to see this by shining a flashlight done the drain it's hook to) If there is no noise the pump my be out or perhaps a connection came loose. Make sure you turn power off at the breaker panel before poking around underneath it, just not having it on is not enough there will still be live power to it. \015\012You might just try putting more water in and aggressively sucking water out with the shop vac in hopes of undoing a clog.\015\012Hope this helps

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective. I feel as if something is clogged with lime or calcium since a pan placed in there on bottom shelf still had

Hi. I have a 3 year old LG dishwasher. It will not drain. Display shows OE. I completely cleaned the drain assembly inside the DW. I checked the discharge line, it is completely clean. I disconnected the drain line from the air vent assembly at the sink and ran the DW, still will not drain. I disconnected the discharge pump wires and ran current directly, the pump works. I replaced the main control PCB, still will not drain. Please advise. Thanks

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

I have a Neff Dishwasher and I think the problem is due to the cold water inlet valve. When the dishwasher starts it drains any water and then should stat to fill. If I monitor the voltage to the valve it does switch to 240V but still fails to fill. I have verified that the cold supply works OK and the filter on the inlet is clean. The dishwasher is a NEFF GB5121 and is about 20 Years old.
