Answers :

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual\015\012reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point\015\012where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household\015\012drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the\015\012hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting\015\012the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an\015\012electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve\015\012opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or\015\012the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining\015\012or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the\015\012lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump\015\012assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one\015\012direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other\015\012dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the\015\012dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a\015\012drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

My 1yo slimline hotpoint dishwasher LST216 has developed a fault when trying to run the 'normal wash': washing stops after a couple of mins, the lights start flashing and the alarm comes on as soon as the water is being drawn into the machine. When I open the door I can hear a whirling/grating motor noise coming from the bottom of the machine. I have cleaned all filters and have run other programmes to check overall functionality and they all work as expected most of the time. I cannot unders

Smeg DF612S All starts well but after 40 minutes stops with a beep and will not progress to the main wash cycle. Instead all programme lights come on (located on the left), along with the first 2 phase lights (the first two of the lights on the right hand panel). This indicates error code 3 (cannot pump out water), but water is entering and draining perfectly. Please advise.

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

Hi, I have a Siemens SE44 dishwasher with Aquastop, which I bought recently. It was doing great for first 3-4 wash cycles and then it stopped functioning :( Now all it does is let the water in, and then drains it out- it doesnt do anything else. I can hear the water going in and then the machine drains the water,and this repeats. I tired resetting the dishwasher, checked the drain pipe, aquastop etc, and all seem to be in order to me. Any suggestions? Many thanks, stonerockyy

I own the Siemans SL34A006UC dishwasher which had the recall repair completed. Now it doesn't work right. The unit goes through any of the cleaning choices but when it comes time to drain, the unit stops for a few seconds, swishes water for a couple seconds, stops again, then swishes for a couple seconds, stops and then goes back in to regular cleaning mode until the timer reaches zero. At each drain cycle, it does the same thing earlier mentioned 3 times in a row, then back to washing. The unit

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!
