Having problems with your Sears 24 in. 14181 Built-in Dishwasher ?

No drainage Motor runs well, Solenoid valve seems works well, but water doesn't drain.


Answers :

You have an obstruction in either your rubber drain hose running from the machine to the drain pipe, or in your actual pipe itself. Make sure the hose has no kinks in it or hard turns to obstruct the flow of drain water when the machine is trying to drain it out. Good luck!

Had a clogged garbage disposal, once fixed, the dishwasher stopped getting water to it, sounds like its running, but no water coming to the cycle, Its a bosch dishwasher, motor seems to run, drain working,but no water to it.

I have a GE GSD3200 dishwasher about 6 years old, which had been working well until this past week. When turned to 'start' the motor runs but no water fills the tub. I then poured 4-5 pots of hot water into the tub and tried to re-start. As soon as it was turned to 'start', I could hear all of the water draining out. How bad does this sound :) ?

GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer. I have discovered that the plug for the disposer was not taken out where the dishwasher hose attached. The dish washer stopped working after a new disposer was installed. I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

Frigidaire dishwasher M#fbd1050rem2 - When started water fills for a short while, then makes a constant 'whirring' sound without any wash. This sound seems to be the motor running but no pumping.

Shu9925uc/14 bosch dishwasher leaves standing water in the bottom of the pump. The pump seems to be bad because it wont drain out the back hose. I have run the diswasher full cycle and put the drain hose into the sink to test. It wont drain at all now and I dont hear the pump. Perhaps unrelated: Pump seemed to stop working after the back hose disconnected itself from the back of the unit spilling water all over the floor.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

My GE Nautilus DW doesn't fully drain. When it is drained as much as it will it leaves water in the sump at the rear right. If you run the pump at that point, it sucks water out of the sump, but when you open the door and the pump stops water flows back into it. It seems like there is a check valve that isn't working. I have cleaned the sump and the screen which runs accross the rear. I also have taken the plunger out and cleaned it. Then I took the housing for the plugner off the bottom. I don'

Hi experts - My dishwasher won't drain properly. There's several inches of standing water in the bottom of the unit. During the drain phases of the wash, the motor underneath doesn't spin and a buzzing is coming out of the motor relay. During the wash and rinse phases, the motor runs fine and all appears well. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n

Hi there, The error code 'strong and economy light flicker fleetly' is showing. the manual says that this means too much inlet water. We have drained the machine, cleaned waste pipe and tried to operate with a reduced flow from the inlet pipe but it's still not working. I filled the base of the dishwasher with water to see if it drains properly. It seems to be draining, but also leaking out of the base as well..? Any ideas?.

I have a CDA CW494 dishwasher, which is a rebadged Whirlpool. The pump has been changed by a service engineer, using a Whirlpool part instead of the original, apparently it is superior. It seemed to work OK, but now the main jets only squirt for a short burst when the motor stops or starts. The rest of the time the motor can be heard running, but no water comes from the jets. Could the motor be running in reverse?

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!
