Dishwasher won't drain, the pump seems to be working but it's like it's clogged or something, any ideas?


Answers :

OK, first using a sponge and bucket, drain out all the water of the dishwasher (DW) as you can. You can also use a towel too.
\015\012
\015\012Check the discharge/drain cover at the bottom of the DW for any obstructions. Sometimes small pieces of all sorts of things get sucked into the drain port.
\015\012
\015\012There should be a protective shroud/cover over the drain and you might have to remove a small hex head screw to get into the drain sump inlet. Some can be popped off without any tools.
\015\012
\015\012Once you have the cover off, be VERY careful in probing the drain area trying to see if there are any small broken pieces of dishes or glasses that may have gotten into the sump area. You'll want to use a towel or sponge to get the water out of the sump area.
\015\012
\015\012If you don't get anything out of the sump drain, it could be that the obstruction has worked its' way into the motor disposal impeller and you'll have to remove the DW from under the counter in order to get at the motor and pump assembly. This will require possible disconnection of the water supply line, AC power line or plug, and the drain line going to the sink or disposal.
\015\012
\015\012Before getting into removing the DW, you can also check the drain line for blockage by disconnecting it from either the sink drain connection or disposal and blow into the line. If it's not clogged, you'll get air coming into the DW. If not, then the drain line is clogged. Also check the Air break connection, mounted on the sink, (if so equipped) and clean it out. You can also pour warm water down the Air break to verify that the line is clear.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't work, please check my other solutions under dishwashers for a complete step-by-step for getting to the discharge pump section.
\015\012
\015\012I've seen blockages occur fairly often on these models and it's usually caused by broken bits getting into the discharge pump and jamming the impeller. Once removed, normally the DW will work fine, unless the impeller has been totaly chewed up by the blockage, then you may have to replace the discharge impeller to get it able to pump out properly.
\015\012
\015\012Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

I have been interacting with Daniel about my Dishwasher Smart Dispenser problem. The last thing he had to say to me was that I needed to replace my drain pump.

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 mod KDSU01DJ that will not drain. I've had it all apart, there are no clogs, nothing stuck. I bench tested the motor and the pump, both run ok. It seems like the pump isn't pushing hard enough. Should the motor be running with the pump during the drain cycle. I"m stumped. Thanks.

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A05UC/40 is making noise when draining. I have cleaned the screen and hose back to the drain and removed all debris. So it seem to be the 'drain pump'. But replacing it - now that seem complex - is it? Looks like I would have to stand the DW on its head and remove the base and then replace the pump. Anyone know if I am on the right track? Could it be something else?

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?


Don't buy a power that doesn't work.There are many expensive parts on a power washer. If it was cheap and simple to fix, the seller would fix it and the washer would not be for sale.Would you buy a car that doesn't work? Especially ... Pressure Washers

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out.

I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

Magic Chef DU4K is not draining all the water. There's at least a gallon of water standing in the bottom. I have cleaned the air gap assembly and drain line completely. They were even sanitized in hot water. I do not hear the water draining like it use to. When it worked properly you could always hear water draining into the GD. Now I can hear any draining. Again, there is no clogging anywhere in the drain line assembly. Is it a bad pump. I don't know where to go next with this.
