It seems the pump has stopped working, there is a 2-3 litre amount of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. My wife put a jar in the dishwasher with a label on it. The label was washed off. I am guessing that this clogging the pump. Any ideas on how to fix this ??? (I was thinking a strong cleaner to dissolve the paper)


A small label like that shouldn't be the problem the motor may have just burned out. if it still sprays then is a solenoid that changes the valve to pump out. If it doesn't spray you may have a more serious issue. ... LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher

Hello, I had a problem with my Bosch dishwasher not washing properly. I have fixed burnt out wires, replaced the water inlet valve, AND tested with a new control module. Nothing is helping. When I start the cycle, it completes the initial drain and water does flow into the unit for about a minute, maybe a minute and a half. I can hear the clicking of cycle changes but it is not washing. Eventually it will drain the inch or so of water in the bottom, but it never washes. Any help???

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.

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

Clogged Dishwasher The water won't drain out and I believe my dishwasher is clogged up. Where do I look (I'm assuming at the bottom of the appliance) to find the clog so that I may fix it?

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli


I read your previous problem. This appears to be separate problems. The first was likely a loose wire. When a wire has a loose connection they build heat and can melt. The current issue would seem like the float switch is stuck. The float switch is ... Bosch SHU9925UC Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher. Model FDB520RHS0, Serial TH92539147. The drum fills with water but will not drain. I purchased the unit about 2 years ago. It has been used sparingly and mostly on light wash. I removed the basket and could find nothing blocking the drain. Is there a fix? Can I replace the drain pump? The unit is making a noise as if it is trying to drain but nothing is happening. I have checked the drain line for clogs and it is clear and the terminal end is conn

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

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?


The clog could be in the hose,or on up in the mouth of the drain,air pressure might dislodge the clog,or dissasible of the drain pan in the machine. ... Dishwashers

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem? All the dishes were clean. Should I run it through another wash cycle? I've got water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher.


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and block ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a De Dietrich DV640JE1 built in 45cm Dishwasher, working fine for over 3 years. After replacing the connection under the sink to fix a leak it has stopped working. But I dont think this is related. I run a cycle and it fills water in the bottom of the machine, it drains it out in the end but the 2 arms are not rotating and no water comes out. I checked the arms and they are not blocked. A faint clunking sound can be heard at some part of the cycle. I did also run a cycle with the dr

Bosch dishwasher I have a month old Bosch dishwasher. It was stopped mid cycle. I drained the water at the bottom, but the active light keeps flashing, and when I press the start,reset button, then turn it off, it does the same thing when I turn it back on. active light keeps flashing and the wash light is on. It won't even lock the door. How do I fix this because there is no Bosch dealers here to help with the problem.

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

Water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher. I pulled the dishwasher out, blew through the drain tube, disconnected the drain tube and felt around inside. Ok there. The dishwasher has not been in use for 4 months, due to low hot water flow. I replaced a clogged valve today and restored water flow, and I'm wondering if non-use causes a problem with dishwashers?
