Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

We just replaced our garbage disposal and now the dishwasher won't drain. I order a drain pump and it still won't drain.


Answers :

Did you remove the knock out plug on the garbage disposal after you completed your installation? These garbage disposals have a plug inside the dishwasher drain line inlet that must be removed, after installtion, and prior to using your dishwasher.

\012You can verify by removing the dishwasher drain line from the disposal and sticking your finger inside the inlet. If the plug is still in place, take a flat blade screwdriver and insert it inside the inlet and give it a tap with a hammer. The plug should pop out inside the disposal. Place your hand inside the the disposal from the top and retrieve the plug. Reinstall, the drain line and your dishwasher should now drain properly. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the disposal or secure the power before attempting any repairs.

\012More thank likely, your dishwasher does not have a problem. If you still have the receipt for the drain pump, you may consider getting a refund.

\012If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
Make sure that the air clear on top of the sink is clean and clear all the way through. Sometimes in replacement silt and other garbage clog this up and keep it allowing water to drain properly.

When I replaced my garbage disposal I forgot to remove the knockout tab that would have allowed my my bosch SHE58C05UC dishwasher to drain into the disposal.

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck.

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?
