GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer. I have discovered that the plug for the disposer was not taken out where the dishwasher hose attached. The dish washer stopped working after a new disposer was installed. I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

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

We had a problem with our garbage disposal and it resulted with water leaking from our dishwasher. The disposal is fixed, I removed the excess water from the dishwasher. I tried to run the dishwasher empty to clean it. It runs but then the E-2 alert shows on the control panel meaning high water level. I read in the book that I may have to have a service person do some sort of a reset. Is this correct?

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

I have a Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel front- with buttons on the inside top( same as display, and the washing cycle won't start. Water seems to be running into the washer, as I can hear it, but the cycle never starts. Recently, I had clogged garbage disposer issue that has been resolved. The dish washer drains into the disposer, and I had free standing water left behind in the washer for 2days during this time.. Could this be the issue? Can you help me figure out this problem? Thanks!!

Dishwasher will not drain. It appears to us that the pump simply is not pushing the water out. We have disconnected the hoses and then the water drains, but there is nothing clogged up. The garbage disposal works fine. We can hear the pump when we push drain but nothing happens.


Hello. I suspect that the dishwasher drain pump has a chunk of debris in it or that the hose is clogged or kinked. Do this. Get a #2 phillips head screwdriver and remove the lower front panel on the dishwasher. Once that panel is off you will see ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

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

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor. We have to run a wash cycle to drain and dry out the dishwasher. What do you think the problem is?

I have the Kitchen aid KUDS01DL dishwasher. It was working fine until last week. When starting a cycle, the washer fills with water. Once filled, the motor makes a humming noise and does not circulate the water. I end up stopping the cycle and the discharge pump empties the water. I took apart and cleaned the basin this morning. I did find some random garbage but it did not seem blocked. Do you have any ideas?
