Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

During the drain phase water bubbles out of this little vent like gizmo that is attached to the dishwasher by a white flexible hose under the sink and is mounted on the counter top at the back of the sink. It floods the counter top?


Answers :

Hello. You have a partial blockage of your drain under the sink. This is causing the discharge from the dishwasher to come through that "gizmo". If you also have a garbage disposal under the sink the blockage could be there as well. Begin by disconnecting the trap as that is the most common spot for a blockage. Be prepared for a quart or more of water when you unscrew it. Once the blockage has been cleared the problem will be solved and no more water will discharge through the "gizmo". That gizmo is required by code in some areas and it is actually termed a "Dishwasher air gap", it acts as a "vacuum breaker" for the dishwasher preventing dirty trap water from the sink from going the wrong way and into the dishwasher.

The overflow air drain on top of the sink that is connected to two hoses under the sink is leaking. It leaks out the top onto the counter. I took it abart but am afriad I did not put it back together right. There is a rubber ring that I think must be for sealing and I put it directly on the counter and then screwed down the air valve over this and water s coming out of the air flow valve and all over the counter.

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot

Frigidaire 2405 Dishwasher has a direct drain into the floor and is too far from the sink to be able to drain into the sink pipes. Can I add a loop of drain hose from the floor drain up to the counter height, about 30", then back to the floor to mimic the loop that would be created by running to the sink drain? I have been told that these new types of dishwashers require water remaining in the pipes to work properly. Thanks, John

My dishwasher leaks water from the top of my sink when in the drain cycle mode causing a mess on the counter top. How do I stop this leak? The plastic cover to the part which is located next to the faucet is cracked but there appears to be no leaks on the hose or on the part itself. Also, what is the purpose of this part? Is this the actual drain for the dishwasher and if so, why doesn't it tie directly into the drain?

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 a F&P Model DD602I. I had a repairman out to change out hoses that were bad and now I have this problem: When I just run the bottom unit, it works fine, but a bunch of water ends up in the top unit that I have to drain out. If I just run the top unit, water collects in that unit causing a default. Now if I run both units together and I start the top unit about 3 seconds after starting the bottom unit, both units work fine! When I look at the hoses under the sink, they loop down quite a bi

Frigidaire dishwasher (Electrolux FDB750RCB0) does not move water through the hose to the upper wash/spray bar. The lower wash/spray bar has pressure enough to turn. With the dish washer out from under the counter I can see the water rise very slowly up the translucent hose. If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw
