Hi
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa.\015\012Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due\015\012to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses,\015\012knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) &\015\012clogged drain pump & filter.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Also note that dishwashers do not\015\012drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are\015\012designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element\015\012doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water\015\012being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common\015\012reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump\015\012isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s\015\012drain lines.
\015\012

\015\012\015\012First check whether the drain is\015\012not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for\015\012blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced\015\012recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the\015\012drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not\015\012been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry\015\012vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything\015\012else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you\015\012have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then\015\012it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

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

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

Hi there My dishwasher (Miele G975 PLUS) drain light keeps coming on and the water won't drain. I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
