Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDR24SEBLO does not drain 100%. I have removed the drain hose and chcked the sink P-Trap, [it drains thru the garbage disposer]. Unit is 10 years old, otherwise works fine. I am having difficulty removing the impeller and items above the pump to see if it is clogged. Do you think I have a partially clogged pump or a timer issue that prevents the pump from completely emptying the bottom of the dishwasher? We have run the dishwasher 20-30 times since observing the problem.

My new Dishwasher Won't Drain, ehat to do? I have a GE model GSD2300N00WW dishwasher. A few days ago we noticed that it isn't draining. This dishwasher came installed in our new doublewide mobile home. There is no disposal, the drain hose isn't clogged, there is no air-gap installed, and the sink drains just fine. I have removed the filter and cleaned it (wasn't really dirty). Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a Bosch dishwasher that was working just fine until I spilled a bag of uncooked pasta. I sent the pasta down the drain and ran the garbage disposal, subsequently clogging the pipes. I had to get a plumber to fix the drains, but he wouldn't unclog the dishwasher. I have tried myself to go under the sink and drain some hoses, but it didn't work. I also put some baking soda and vinegar into the drain, but no luck. What can I do?


It may simply be where the dishwasher drain attaches to your garbage disposal. There should be a hose clamp and can easily be taken off. If the clog's not right at the connection, chances are it's far. If there is an air gap, it will be within a f ... Bosch 24 in. SHU66C05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine. BUT, since the water was not properly draining from the disposal, apparently the dishwasher was not draining properly either. A repairman came to fix the disposal before I knew about the dishwasher issue. Now, the dishwasher won't turn off "draining mode" - button pu

I have a Bosch Dishwasher SHU3302UC/14 that will not drain. We initially thought the problem was the disposal because water kept backing up into the sink. We replaced the disposal, removed the dishwasher plug in the disposal, but the dishwasher still does not drain. I would like to check the drain line, but am unable to access it. I removed the kick plate and the screws that secure the dishwasher to the underside of the counter, but the dishwasher will not move. Can you access the drain li

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow


Smell is not the fault of the dishwasher but your waste disposal unit - they stink!it may be awkward, but arrange your drain so that there is a water barrier. better still. install a standpipe for the drain, again with a water barrier ... Bosch SHY56A02 / SHY56A06 Built-in Dishwasher

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

My garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i did not know and the sink was backed up. i started the dishwasher and it sounded like the motor was running like a drain emptying...i thought it would stop but continued. i unplugged the dishwasher, freed the garbage disposal and the drain is now clear. i turned on the dishwasher and the sound is the same. the large POT light is lit up and when you try to shut it off it doesnt stop running. i unplugged it for fear of breaking something.

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. The overfill protection drain seems OK...the water doesn't overflow. It doesn't have a air gap on the sink. The drain hose goes directly from the dishwasher to the inlet on the garbage disposal. It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye

Water not going into dishwasher. We turned off the water temporarily because we first had a leak. Fixed the leak and tried the dishwasher. It would not drain, the garbage disposer was clogged. We put in a new garbage disposer, hooked up the water again to the dishwasher and now the water will not go into dishwasher. Help!


Is the drain attached directly to the side of the disposal? If so, you didnt take the "knock out" out. Where the drain goes for the washing, there is a block in case the house does not have a washing machine. U need to knock this out with a screwd ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA2000Z Built-in Dishwasher

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.

Hello, My GE dishwasher stopped draining. Model Number: VSD2304JOOWW I emptied out the dishwasher of the liquid, removed the cover and checked the filter. (Didn't look bad.) Checked the drain pipe under the sink and there was a little debris (slime) but very minimal. The garbage disposal was installed at the same time as the dishwasher 3 years ago (brand new place). What else could it be? Any advice would be helpful as my new home seems to be falling apart and it is getting pretty e

Dishwasher does not drain, instead drains through overflow valve in sink. No apparent clog seen.


Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash i ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

In between wash cycles, water seems to back up into the dishwasher. I had a plumber take a look at the drain and disposal in the kitchen sink to see if there was an issue there. He suggested to have appliance repair tech to come look and indicated that he believed that the issue may be the "cylianoid" valve. Does the this valve prevent water from backing up into the dishwasher after it has drained?
