Having problems with your GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher ?

Water in dishwasher will not drain.

\015 We have a GE dishwasher and there's water at the bottom of it that will not drain.\015

Answers :

Check the following to address this issue--


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in\015\012the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the\015\012top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is\015\012no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there\015\012is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the\015\012air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the\015\012hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\011Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0112. Broken belt
\015\012\011\011\011Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it\015\012might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt,\015\012because it is probably too stretched out.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0113. Pump
\015\012Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller,\015\012takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the\015\012water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the\015\012dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0114. Drain solenoid
\015\012Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to\015\012drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the\015\012water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful,\015\012you might have to replace the pump assembly.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0115. Motor
\015\012\011\011\011If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\011Replace the motor if defective.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0116. Timer
\015\012\011\011\011Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

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.

My asko d3250 thinks the drain hose is blocked. but when i pour water in the dishwasher to see if the water is being drained, the dishwasher is draining properly. Yet the dishwasher after it has drained the water, will shutoff and start flashing the Large Pot icon (drain hose is blocked error code). Is there a sensor that is faulty?

Water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher. I pulled the dishwasher out, blew through the drain tube, disconnected the drain tube and felt around inside. Ok there.

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?

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.

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged.

Dishwasher keeps running I have a Bosche dishwasher and the water keeps running. As long as we run it and don't stop it, the pump will continue to drain about every 3 minutes.
