Hi
\015\012Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due\015\012to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that\015\012the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is\015\012present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and\015\012drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump\015\012completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller &\015\012clean the chopper assembly. Hope this helps...\015\012Please post back for any further assistance.

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help? Thanks.

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

Hi there, The error code 'strong and economy light flicker fleetly' is showing. the manual says that this means too much inlet water. We have drained the machine, cleaned waste pipe and tried to operate with a reduced flow from the inlet pipe but it's still not working.
