Having problems with your Westinghouse 24 in. MDP531 RF Free-standing Dishwasher ?

My husband installed our dishwasher a Westinghouse 905 and it fills with water but then floods our kitchen!! If we turn it off it drains out properly so we are not sure what to do next. Any help would be appreciated greatly!!!


Answers :

Check the outlet hose goes UP at least 50-60cm before going down to the drain point, if not all water will syphon out as soon as it goes in
Hello!\015\012
\015\012"floods the kitchen"... do you mean it overfills, or that it fills, the water valve shuts off, and then while running it leaks out?\015\012
\015\012Perhaps the water level control float that is on the inside of the machine is stuck or there is packing material inside it for shipping??? \015\012
\015\012The float valve would be on the bottom of the tub and probably looks about the size of a hockey puck and has to move freely up and down to detect the level of water. If the water level were to get too high, the valve will float up and release a micro switch that it controls with a little shaft that runs down through a small opening in the bottom of the tub.\015\012
\015\012 Check to see that it moves freely up and down... you likely will be able to hear a bit of a "click" of a micro switch.\015\012
\015\012If the float was stuck, it probably is safe to try to run the dishwasher again... but stand by just in case !!!!\015\012
\015\012Hope this was the problem and now it works !!!\015\012

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


This may not be the solution, but look for an air in-take somewhere on the top/back of the unit. It's probably covered by a stainless steel cover that can be taken off. Unscrew this cover and see if the air intake is blocked with lint. This is usua ... Dishwashers

Greetings! My Bosch SHE3305UC/UC12 has worked faithfully until last week when we had to pull it out of its home to retile the floor. Upon reconnecting all of the connections, it no longer works properly. The initial drain cycle works, so the flood switch is fine. But after draining, it just quietly hums. The test cycle actually seems to move to the next step for about 30 seconds, before also just humming. I'm thinking I need to check the valve, but not sure how to do it on this mod


Hi\015\012\015\012The hum sound indicates a bad motor and it should be\015\012replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.\015\012\015\012Daniel ... Dishwashers

Folks, I have a Karcher 5.55 home water blaster that pulses at the highest pressure on the vario power spray wand. It works fine on the lower pressure settings and with the rotary spray wand. I live in a temperate climate, depressurize and drain after each use, always prime the pump, have good water supply, cleaned the filter etc etc. Any pointers on to do or test next? Any help greatly appreciated.

I have a Kenmore Model # 587.1430590. It's stuck in the drain part of the cycle and I can't get it out. I've checked to be sure that the float isn't obstructed or stuck and I've tested the float switch to ensure that it is working properly. What should I check next?


Stuck in the drain would not have any thing to do with the float . the the float and it's sw only controls the power to the fill valve . i would think that in the start of any cycle it will drain first then advance to ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Magic Chef DU4K is not draining all the water. There's at least a gallon of water standing in the bottom. I have cleaned the air gap assembly and drain line completely. They were even sanitized in hot water. I do not hear the water draining like it use to. When it worked properly you could always hear water draining into the GD. Now I can hear any draining. Again, there is no clogging anywhere in the drain line assembly. Is it a bad pump. I don't know where to go next with this.

When the washer drains it comes out of the, what i thought was just the vent, on top of the sink next to the fouset knob. isnt the water supposed to drain into the existing drain for the garbage dissposal under the sink. we just bought this house with this problem. not sure of the model but figured that the drain would be the same concept.

I have the GLD 4560 NSS and it is no longer draining. The tub stays completely full. When you start it, the water in the tub is reused then it does not drain. No noise or anything when the draining or filling should actually be taking place. Hoses are not kinked, no leaks, no air vent, it drains directly to the disposal. Everything seems OK but it is full of water. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

I have a MDB4630AWS1 series dishwasher that is only a couple of weeks old. Suddenly, it now starts the wash cycle but then the Cancel/Drain light turns red, and it drains and stops the cycle. Check for items blocking the sprayers and looked for anything clogging the interior. It does this with all the settings. Seems to work for a few minutes, but then it just drains and stops.
