Having problems with your Danby DDW497W 22 in. Countertop Dishwasher ?

I don't use my dishwasher regularly and the last time I used it (5 days ago), didn't completely empty out, leaving water in the bottom of the machine. I bailed out most of the water and poured vinegar into the remaining and let it stand for an hour or so then ran the machine through a cycle but no luck. Suggestions?? Dawn [email protected]

Hello there:
Here is how to manually drain the pan (it's a little rubber\015\012stopper behind the plastic fascia along the bottom front). Voila,\015\012fixed. check to ensure that the surface that it is on is completely level, other wise it wont drain properly
also arrange the appliance in such a way so the rinse water\015\012drains fully, ok
Now if this still doesent help you will want to open the unit up and look for the pump and see if it is getting clogged or is not working properly and if needed replace the pump with a new one
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
Let me see if I understand; The DW doesn't drain?

If so, perhaps food particles are clogging the drain hose.

Could you provide more (detailed) information about exactly what is the issue and what solution are you looking for?

Dishwasher not emptying at the end of its cycle. If water siphoned out will work temporarily then fails again, with water remaining standing inside machine. Check water indicator light is on, goes off when water siphoned off, then comes on again when machine again fails to drain


Not sure of your light indicator; check the manual. But fyi there should be a little water left in, so the rubber seal doesn't dry out. More than that, and could be clogged drain or bad solenoid, which tells it to open and drain. See: http://www.part ... Bosch 24 in. SGS45E02 / SGS45E08 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher

Tricity Bendix DH090 water valve closes too early. Insufficient water causes program to stop before first heating cycle. If I switch off, open the machine & pour an extra pint of water in, shut the door & switch on again the wash takes place and completes perfectly to specification. OK so the problem seems to be that level detector No 1 switches off the water inlet valve early and level detector No 2 (apparently) halts the cycle since it detects insufficient water in the machine. I cannot see t

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all

Ran the dishwasher and the water didn't drain completely. Checked the drain line for clog - it was clear. Scooped out the remaining water (barely covered the flat wire mesh filter in bottonm of the machine) and cleaned off the canister mesh filter and carefully relocked the filtyer in place. Tried to run the machine last night. Soap tray opened but apparently no water cycled through the machine as all the soap was in the bottom of the machine. The heat never turned on to dry the dishes and

Help! My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II isn't working at all. Water was standing in bottom at end of last 2 cycles, but on the last cycle, I came home to clean looking dishes, standing water, and a machine that won't turn on at all- no lights on any buttons- nothing works. I've tried the reset codes published here and elsewhere, but there are no lights on any buttons at all. The circuit breaker is fine. I have 3 young kids and can't function long without my dishwasher!

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.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?


After 8 years service the seal may have perished, so you should feel for a crack by stretching the rubber where you noticed the leak. ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II model DU1100XTPQ7. The top rack is not clean after the dishwasher runs. We cleaned both sprayers with pipe cleaner & ran water through the lower sprayer with a hose. Then we let the dishwasher soak overnight with a gallon of vinegar in it. After running that through a cycle, we still see no improvement. We do have very hard water here; I add 1/2 cup of vinegar to every load. Any suggestions? Heather

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
