WATER DOES NOT DRAIN COMPLETELY - Maytag Dishwashers


Answers :

Your dishwasher's drain pump is not designed to work until the water is completely drained but rather in sync with the timer. The motor will stop when the timer stops no matter how much water is left inside the machine.
In your case, either of the following is causing the trouble:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. There's a part clogging in the drain line.
  2. \015\012
  3. A debris is caught in the drain pump impeller.
  4. \015\012
  5. Drain valve is not opening completely.
  6. \015\012
  7. Worn belt if your washer uses a belt to drive the pump.
Here's the remedy to each of them:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Remove the drain line to clear\015\012any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line\015\012connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012 The drain pump is usually mounted directly\015\012to the motor and attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove\015\012the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support to\015\012reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Look\015\012for the wash impeller, which forces the water through the\015\012spray arm. Beneath it is the drain impeller, which is\015\012similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. Clear the drain impeller from any debris that prevent it from pumping out water properly.
  4. \015\012
  5. Sometimes the drain valve solenoid or the diverting lever\015\012sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining properly. Lubricate the lever to free it up. Replace it otherwise.
  6. \015\012
  7. If your machine uses a belt to drive the pump, the belt may have been worn and cannot drive the pump properly. Replace the belt if that is the case.

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

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
