I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine. BUT, since the water was not properly draining from the disposal, apparently the dishwasher was not draining properly either. A repairman came to fix the disposal before I knew about the dishwasher issue. Now, the dishwasher won't turn off "draining mode" - button pu

My dishwasher leaks water from the top of my sink when in the drain cycle mode causing a mess on the counter top. How do I stop this leak? The plastic cover to the part which is located next to the faucet is cracked but there appears to be no leaks on the hose or on the part itself. Also, what is the purpose of this part? Is this the actual drain for the dishwasher and if so, why doesn't it tie directly into the drain?

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADG 450. Start as normal and it keeps intermittentlly stopping and starting. Washs / drains fine, but sometimes cycle seams to last for a couple of hours. I think it is four beeps when it is stopping and then immediately starts again. We had a problem months ago where as the sink was draining into the dishwasher out pipe, so dishwasher wasn't draining / filling up. Fixed the problem by turning the pipe the other way so water couldn't flow that way - but I don't know if that

We have an Asko 1385 dishwasher. It drains via the same drain into which our kitchen sinks drain. We had a blockage there. When that was fixed we noticed that the dishwasher does not drain properly and does not fill at all yet it seems to go through its cycle. I am wondering if a float switch or some such is stuck but I cannot find one in the bottom of the tub!


It is a plastic circular float in the bottom of the tub.With an exact model # we can point you in the right direction.Thanks!! ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

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

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

During the drain phase water bubbles out of this little vent like gizmo that is attached to the dishwasher by a white flexible hose under the sink and is mounted on the counter top at the back of the sink. It floods the counter top?


Hello. You have a partial blockage of your drain under the sink. This is causing the discharge from the dishwasher to come through that "gizmo". If you also have a garbage disposal under the sink the blockage could be there as well. Begin by disc ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so

I own a build-in LG Stainless Dishwasher (modle: LDF1178ST). It stopped draining water during its recent startup due to its idle (no operation) for about a year:). I can only feel the hose full of water by touching the drain hose between the washer and the sink desposal. It's hard to check other part of dish washer since it's built in our cabinet. Could any dishwasher expert help to advise how to trouble shoot or fix this problem. Thanks, Alex Chen 571-220-7484

I have a brand new Blanco dishwasher but im unsure if it is a DWF6XP, DWF4X or DWIN7 model. It does not have a salt dispenser if that helps.

Frigidaire 2405 Dishwasher has a direct drain into the floor and is too far from the sink to be able to drain into the sink pipes. Can I add a loop of drain hose from the floor drain up to the counter height, about 30", then back to the floor to mimic the loop that would be created by running to the sink drain? I have been told that these new types of dishwashers require water remaining in the pipes to work properly. Thanks, John

I have a De Dietrich DV640JE1 built in 45cm Dishwasher, working fine for over 3 years. After replacing the connection under the sink to fix a leak it has stopped working.

I checked the arms and they are not blocked. A faint clunking sound can be heard at some part of the cycle. I did also run a cycle with the dr
