Water standing in Dishwasher

\015 Water is left in the bottom after cycle is done Maytag dishwasher\015

Answers :

Hello buzzy220,
\015\012If you have water remaining in the bottom of your dishwasher then I would check the following:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. The drain filter screen is free from food byproducts that might limit drainage.
  2. \015\012
  3. The drain line exiting the dishwasher itself.. is it kinked or clogged?
  4. \015\012
  5. If your drain line is plumbed into a garbage disposal side entry, is that clogged or your house drain clogged?
  6. \015\012
  7. Is your dishwasher pump contaminated with sediment or anything that would limit its ability to pump?
  8. \015\012
  9. Are the water lines that come into or out of the pump blocked, damaged or restricting water flow?
\015\012Those are the main reasons areas of concern to investigate.. BTW, your drain line exitting the dishwasher should be routed up high and down into your sink drain system or thru the garbage disposal tap so that you have an air gap as 20YRSEXP was inquiring about..
\015\012
\015\012You can run a simple test to verify all this..
\015\012Detach your drain hose from the house drain system ( from the garbage disposer or sink drain.. then route that into a rubber barrel ( be sure to keep part of the house up around the height of the countertop when you do this.. )... You should see a fairly robust flow of drain water into it when the system functions properly.. I would encourage you to run this test with no dishes inside it,.. This test will tell you if the restriction is in the dishwasher or house drain side..
\015\012Hope this helps you..
\015\012Regards,
\015\012Rick
I get a whistling sound when the motor kicks in during the wash or rinse cycle. How can I get rid of that noise?

I noticed water leaking underneath my dishwasher through the floor joists to my basement. It was a small but steady drip through the joists. I turned off the water to the dishwasher and the leak stopped. I looked inside the dishwasher and there is still some standing water inside the dishwasher, but I cannot see anywhere that water is standing under the dishwasher. I am wondering if the leak is at the pump or at the door? But I see no evidence of the seal leaking.


This is probably the line that goes from the water inlet valve on the bottom of the dishwasher up to the valve leading into the dishwasher itself. It is probably a black corrugated rubber line. This is an extremely bad design, but the solution is s ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

After I run the dishwasher, water stands at the bottom and it smells. I have had the dishwasher for five years. The washer seems to be working properly it's just that water stands at the base of the washer. Is it normal for water to always stand there?

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor. We have to run a wash cycle to drain and dry out the dishwasher. What do you think the problem is?

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.

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

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 Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher Odor Our dishwasher leaves dishes and glassware with a sulfer odor after the wash cycle. We have run vinegar through it, use jet dry, and use 1 tablespoon of dry detergent. All suggestions made by the "customer support". None of these have led to a permanent solution. We're about ready to "kick this to the curb". Any suggestions? I've checked filters and there doesn't appear to be any standing water. We have city water and there isn't an odor when you drink it.

After that it seemed like it was going to work because it started to cycle normally but now it is flashing again and this time there was water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Brand new dishwasher, installed last week. When it is done there is quite a lot of water standing in the bottom of the tub.
