Draining problem Water left in dishwasher after end of cycle. Have a disposer, don't have a drain air gap that I can see. Tried to do a cancel/drain, showed 2 minutes ended and water still there. Disposal works fine. What is really interesting is that there is only two of us and at most we've only used the dishwasher thirty times since we had it. Of course- service plan ran out last year (July 07) Please help me. My name is Donna


There is a flapper in the drain hose just where the hose attaches to the pump assembly it has been know to get dislodged and cause a partial drain. With towels underneath hose remove drain hose and stick you finger in and see if it is free moving. ... Kenmore 24 in. 16539 Built-in Dishwasher

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?


Clear the line from the air gap to the drain,, if the rest is clear the only thing it can be is the propellers on the pump, i which case you will need to change the pump ... GE 25 in. Profile PDW8200J Built-in Dishwasher

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.

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing. Float: The float moves up and down as it should. Filter: The filter inside the tub is clean. The motor runs and will drain any water in the tub I put a bucket of water in the tub and the dishwasher immediately drains no matter which setting I choose. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve


Many dishwashers will drain at the beginning of any cycle. \015\012If the water does not fill after the pump-out cycle, then the problem is either the fill valve or the float switch. You should be able to hear the float switch click as you rais ... Dishwashers

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher. When the rinse cycle ends the water pumps out into the garbage disposal like it should, but then water backs-up from somewhere into the bottom of the dishwasher. The overfill protection drain seems OK...the water doesn't overflow. It doesn't have a air gap on the sink. The drain hose goes directly from the dishwasher to the inlet on the garbage disposal. It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye

Water comes out of air gap during drain cycle. There is no garbage disposal. Discharge line connects to the tail piece coming from the sink. It has a "y" connection if you will. I put a new air gap on

Drainage Problems My ASKO D3120 doesn't drain properly leaving water in the bottom.

Now when I call them they claim this can't be done and they will have to send a technician. Sounds like a money making exercise to me. Does anyone know how to reset through the programming function?

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

Water did not drain completely and there's quite a fair amount of water left at the bottom. The model (Jenn-Air JDB7910AWW). This was the first time that any problem has occurred. Also the lights, for programming did not come on at first. After a couple of attempts they did come on.
