Kenmore dishwasher 15791 wont drain - Kenmore PRO 24 in BuiltIn Dishwasher with Ultra Wash HE Filtration 13173


Answers :

There's a few things you can look into that won't cost you any money.
\015\012
\015\012First, manually remove as much water as possible and then check the\015\012sump area for paper or any other large object clogging the drain. A cup\015\012or so of water in the sump area of your dishwasher is normal and it is\015\012there to prevent the seals from drying out. The dishwasher will pump\015\012this old water out before beginning to wash.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure the door is properly latched as the pump will not drain if the door is not latched properly.
\015\012
\015\012Check the belt, drain line, air gap, drain valve and solenoid assembly,\015\012the motor, and the pump. If your dishwasher uses a belt to drive the\015\012pump, and it has broken or come off the pulley, replace it.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012If you have recently installed a garbage disposer in your home, make\015\012sure that the drain plug on the disposer has been removed. It's just a\015\012little plastic piece that blocks the hole where you hook the dishwasher\015\012drain hose. If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposer, you\015\012need to run the garbage disposer before you run the dishwasher to make\015\012sure that the drain is clear.
\015\012
\015\012There is a drain hose between the drain valve or pump and the garbage\015\012disposal or drain line. If an obstruction has blocked this, then your\015\012dishwasher won't drain. The drain hose is connected by clamps to the\015\012drain valve and the disposer or drain pipe. Remove it and visually\015\012inspect it for a clog or a kink. Try to remove any debris. If it is in\015\012good condition, just put it back on, and if not, purchase a new one to\015\012install.
\015\012
\015\012If you don't have an air gap in the drain line, at least use a high\015\012drain loop. Making a large loop about 18" off the ground with the drain\015\012line can prevent any back flow into the dishwasher from the sink.
\015\012
\015\012If you have one, the air gap will be located on top of the sink. The\015\012air gap is there to prevent any siphoning of standing water from the\015\012sink. When your dishwasher drains, the air gap diaphragm will form a\015\012seal and allow the water to drain properly. If the diaphragm in the air\015\012gap is faulty, it\342\200\231s possible that water can leak onto the cabinet and\015\012into the sink area. When this happens, then the air gap must be\015\012replaced.
\015\012
\015\012Like the inlet valve, there is also a drain valve on most models. When\015\012no power goes to the drain valve it remains closed and prevents water\015\012from leaving the machine. When the valve receives power during the\015\012drain cycle, the solenoid opens and allows the water to leave the\015\012machine. If your drain hose is attached directly to the pump, you don't\015\012have a drain valve. The motor simply reverses and the pump sends the\015\012water in the opposite direction, which is out of the machine.
\015\012
\015\012If the motor doesn\342\200\231t turn or work properly, the dishwasher may not\015\012drain. Make sure you have power to the unit. If you notice that the\015\012motor hums but won't turn, it could be seized, and you probably need to\015\012replace it.
\015\012
\015\012if you need to buy any parts, I have had alot of help from http://www.apwagner.com
\015\012Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs,\015\012you\342\200\231ll need to open the pump and remove any debris buildup. The\015\012dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off\015\012the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your\015\012dishwasher and pushes the water from the dishwasher.
