Answers :

How do you know it's not clogged in the pipe/pump/outlet?
There can be several issues with this. If the pipe for the dishwasher is installed wrong, there may not be enough back pressure for the drain pump. See your install instructions.
The drain solenoid may not be functioning. (Listen for a sudden 'Thunk' when the dish washer hits the drain cycle). It may not have a solenoid.
The pump should be running if the dishes get washed.
There is a back flow valve at the drain hose outlet on the pump. Is it jammed/clogged?
The worst is a failure of the pump impeller or diverter. This means a motor.

I have a Hotpoint FDW80 Dishwasher. The drain pump runs continuously, even though there is no water inside, I poured water in with a kettle and it does drain correctly. After a short while fault code AL01 appears. I have removed the base tray to check the "anti-flood" swithch and that is OK, even with the switch disconnected, I still get AL01. Any ideas?

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.

Broken dishwasher? My dishwasher keeps trying to drain water, even though there isn't any to drain. I have reset it a million times but it won't start a new programme. The drain is clear. Is this a computer software problem? Can it be repaired, or should I just buy a new one?


The dishwaser has a Anti-Flood device (a polystireene block) on the floor of the dishwaser that activates a micro switch if any small amount of water is on the floor of the washer for any reason. This switch automatically puts the washer on PUMP OUT ... Tecnik 24 in. TKD795/3 Built-in Dishwasher

F70 fault cleared the drain valve which had a "button" from the screw holes on the side of the dishwasher - still the fault comes on and the machine runs even though its not turned on. One of the sites indicated the drain pan needed to be dried out but when I took off the kick panel could not see a drain pan.


Obviously the machine believes the drain cycle is not complete. It is running the drain pump until the level it "sees" is all the way down.

Bosch SHU992SUC Dishwasher does not drain. It's not clogged in the external hose, the filters are not dirty. I moved the Dishwasher outside and ran it with the input attached to the garden hose and the output drain hose laying on the ground so there is absolutely no chance of restriction due to the way it's plumbed in. This model does not even show up on Bosch web site. I guess I have to start taking apart the machine blind with no service manual. Ideas? It's less than 10 years old I think. M

My model KUDP01IL dishwasher used to drain fine. Now it will not drain even after you press cancel. It sounds like the pump is running (2 minutes) but water remains at the bottom. Could it be clogged? How do you check or unclog it if necessary? I checked everything I could. Any help appreciated. Thanks.


Take off the pump and see if it is obstructed or that the impeller is turning. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

Miele G 870 SC dishwasher drain was plugged due to blocked sewer line, now won't stop pumping even though all water is been excavated and the drain, trap, and filter have been cleared


There is a tray at the very bottom of the Miele. If the machine overflows for any reason, the tray will fill. (Your drain probably backed up into the machine.) This causes a float valve to put it into "pump it out" mode. The machine will be stuck in ... Dishwashers

Even though dishes are rinsed, the drain filter is always filled with dirty water. dishes have soap reisdue and/or are not clean. we had a plumber look at it and he said the hoses are not kinked - everything looks fine. happens in both upper & lower drawers. tried everything in manual!

Upper spray arm is not turning round even though water is coming through. We have checked the internal system for blockages and the machine is filling / draining as normal. When a full programme is run, many of the dishes, particularly on the top shelf, are dirty and many have hardly been touched by water. Could a pump or other part be faulty?


I found the problem to be neither blockages of the upper arm or roof spray arm or the upper basket arm hitting the the back of the dishwasher. the problem was that the pump inlet where the food scraps are macerated was blocked with all manner of gung ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support
