Hello,

Everyone expects their dishwasher will work correctly. \015\012They can become nonchalant about it until one day it does not function. \015\012Sometimes the dishwasher doesn't drain as expected. Most people \015\012immediately call the plumber when their dishwasher doesn't work. There \015\012are several things you can try at home before having to pay an expensive\015\012 service fee.

1\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check the basics. Make sure that \015\012the dishwasher has actually finish the cycle. Your dishwasher will not \015\012drain until the end of the cycle. Many things may have interrupted the \015\012cycle. Check circuit breaker and reset it if appropriate. Also check the\015\012 fuse. It is possible that you could have tripped a circuit have way \015\012through the cycle. Make sure the door is properly closed. Ensure you \015\012have chosen a cycle on the dishwasher.It is amazing the problems \015\012children could accidentally cause, that are easy fixes.

2\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Remove any excess food at the bottom of the dishwasher. The best\015\012 way to do this is with your hands. Large food particles can block from \015\012going into the drain.This is also another extremely easy fix to make \015\012your dish washer to drain.

3\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check to ensure that \015\012the hoses are still attached. Use your manual to find where the hoses \015\012are. If they are not attached the owner's manual will give you \015\012instructions on how the attach the hoses to your specific dishwasher.

4\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Attempt to declog the line. Disconnect the hose from \015\012under your sink and see if there are any clogs. Use a hanger or towels,\015\012 remove the clog from the hose.

5\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Remove the \015\012dishwasher basket. Again refer to your owner's manual for specific \015\012instructions.Normally you will remove it with a screwdriver. Make sure \015\012to work slowly. As you take the basket apart, you will be able to see if\015\012 it needs to be cleaned. If there is dirt or debris, you can clean the \015\012parts with a rag or paper towel. After cleaning these parts, you can \015\012replace the basket.

6\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Calla plumber. If the \015\012dishwasher is still not draining, the problems are a little more complex\015\012 to fix. It is advisable to call plumber to make your dishwasher drain.

Good luck.

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks.
