Dishwasher won't drain - Whirlpool Dishwashers


Answers :

\015\012\015\012A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Pump \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Drain valve and/or solenoid \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Belt \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Motor \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you will have to replace it as there is no repairing it.\015\012

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADG 450. Start as normal and it keeps intermittentlly stopping and starting. Washs / drains fine, but sometimes cycle seams to last for a couple of hours. I think it is four beeps when it is stopping and then immediately starts again. We had a problem months ago where as the sink was draining into the dishwasher out pipe, so dishwasher wasn't draining / filling up. Fixed the problem by turning the pipe the other way so water couldn't flow that way - but I don't know if that

I have a whirlpool DWH B10W. Last week the main drain outside blocked and none of my service machines were working (not draining). The main drain has now been unblocked and every machine except the dishwasher are now working fine. The plumber has checked the drainpipes again and says all are now clear. When I try to use the dishwasher, after the initial drain it stops and starts beeping at me. I have also noticed that no water is going into the machine. What's happening?

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged. I opened up the bottom, and pulled off the drain hose to the disposal, and that had no water in it, so the clog is somewhere before the water gets to the hose. If I run the dishwasher drain cycle, it is not pumping water into the hose. What next?

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

Good morning! My Whirlpool dishwasher (I'm at work so don't know the precise number) leaves about an inch of water at the bottom after washing. I called a Whirlpool representative soon after my purchase (post Ike devastation of previous dishwasher that drained fully) and was told that this was rather normal for Whirlppol. I live on Galveston Island in Texas, and adding any more sources of water and humiditiy to my household seems counterproductive. Is there anything that I can do to cause

My Dishwasher starts, then stops after 30secs and won't continue draining. Everytime I turn it back on it comes up on the steam cycle and won't go to any other cycle, drains for 30secs and stops again. Power light is flashing. Have tried holding power button down for 10secs with no effect. Filter is clean, pipes are straight-no kinks. How do I get it to start working again? It is a whirlpool dishwasher, ADP5550.

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do.

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help?
