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.

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

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

OE Error I'm getting an OE error which is a drainage trouble error. I checked the hose and the drain, and everything is clear. My diswhwasher runs 98% of its full cycle and usually with 2 minutes to go I get this error. I have 2 opinins as to why this is happeneing. 1. Maybe the clog is in my trash compactor, however that seems to be working fine and my sink is funning with no slow down. 2. My 2nd theory is I have to reset the progam within the dishwasher.

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

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.

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.

After replacing my garbage disposal, my dishwashr stopped working. I did forget to remove the stop plug from the disposal unit. But even after doing this the unit still does not work.

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

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.

My GE Profile Performance dishwasher (GSD 4910) doesn't drain. I hear the pump working, and water draining into the sink (not a disposal) as it should, but water is left standing in the tub about as high as the heating element. I have taken it apart and removed a few small items stuck in the system in various places, but that didn't affect anything.

Hello. my dishwasher leaves gunk on the inside of glasses that were wiped clean before washing. It seems like that would mean the drain to the disposal is clogged but the hose is clear and the impellar is free.
