Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

I have a Maytag dishwasher, model number DWU4910AAX. It is not draining. I suspect that it may be the pump, but I want to be sure. What should I do?

Hi

\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or\015\012not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually,\015\012these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if\015\012connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump &\015\012filter.

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a\015\012finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water\015\012in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you\015\012suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your\015\012dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that\015\012the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly,\015\012or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012\015\012First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and\015\012the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the\015\012air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the\015\012knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and\015\012knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the\015\012drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of\015\012course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line.\015\012Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and\015\012the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain\015\012pump of the dishwasher.

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Please do rate the solution and revert for further\015\012assistance.

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out.

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

I have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. I have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle. HELP!

Have a Kenmore Freestanding Dishwasher that was working when hooked up to the sink. When we plumbed it in and connected the electrical directly, we now get an "F4" flashing on the panel with a beeping noise and the pump sounds like it wants to drain but just get a sucking noise. I've tried putting water in it to prime the pump, but still doesn't want to work. Do the codes mean anything, or point to a specific part?

Hello, I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model FDB750RCC1. It will not fully drain. There is water in the bottom of the unit after the cycle is complete. As it is not full of water or leaking out of the unit when I open the door I am suspecting it is the pump that has broken? (the water must be draining to the overflow point and then stopping as there is nothing pumping it) Any thoughts or ideas for me anyone? Am I on the right track?

Drain problems I have a Kenmore 665.17292992 portable dishwasher. I've changed the filter and the seals however it still does not want to drain. It will drain but extremely slowly and since it's on a timer, it only drains maybe 10% of the water out. My next step was/is going to be the Check Valve... but I am at a loss right now. I thought for sure it would be the filter. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, PM

Our dishwasher, Model Automatic G572 SC runs, but does not drain. I have cleaned all the rotating sprayers, have made sure that the disposal is clear, and have checked the various parts in the base of the dishwasher. We had this problem a few years ago, but after letting the dishwasher sit for a few days, it corrected itself. I don't want to pay for the repair and heard that you can walk me through most simple problems. Help! Thanks.

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie
