The waste or drain tube is supposed to be looped high at the back to make an air gap.. Some water remains in the Dishwasher and prevents seals from drying out as well as any sewer gases from coming back into the dishwasher..have you checked the drain filter? Pump and hoses for obstructions? Is the house drain limiting the flow coming from the dishwasher? Those are some of the basic checks you will need to make to diagnose the problem.. Your pump may be damaged or something inside the pump casing may be limiting the flow of water of the impellor from rotating.. Hope this gives you a few ideas on how to approach this.. Good luck

Why doesn't my Bosch SHU43 c06uc dishwasher have any cleaning force?


With your dishwasher empty, roll out the bottom rack. The feed line for the upper spray arm runs from a pump outlet directly behind the lower spray arm spindle. This tube runs up the back wall of the dishwasher and mates with the upper rack when it is pushed in.

This feed tube simply snaps into place in the bottom of the machine. It is a high pressure line that makes an immediade 90-degree bend towards the rear of the unit. They have a tendency to pop out. When and if it does pop out you get almost no water coming out of the upper arm and you lose effective pressure in the lower arm, too. The cure is to push that feed tube back down firmly into the port until you hear it snap into place. While you have the lowere rack out it is a good idea to clean the intake screen out and check for any debris in the intake well.

SMU2046UC: waste water won't empty. Wash cycle works like it should but waste water remains in the bottom of the dishwasher. Sounds like pump is humming and there don't seem to be any clogs in the system??


Most likely a blocked pump. You should be able to access the pump from the base of the unit under your filters. Remove the cover and rotate the pump impeller to free blockage then start any prog to check if pump is working,if OK reassemble, if not replace pump

Error code al03


AL03 indicates a time out on drain fault. Either there is a restriction or blockage on the drain side of the appliance or on the pressure side.If the machine empties ok you need to locate the pressure switch, remove the thin tube and blow back into the sump to try and clear the restriction. If the machine isn't emptying or empties slowly you need to clear the restriction/blockage in the drain hose, pump or sump.

Water doesn't empty out after wash.


Does the waster water line leading from the dishwasher to the garbage disposal exit the dishwasher upward to the bottom of the cabinet top, before going downward to the disposal? The hose cannot be laying horizontal or on the floor, and at some point, must loop at least 6 inches higher than the dishwasher.

Check that there are no blockages on inlet screens to the pump. Look closely, and don't give up until you can see the pump impeller or the end of it.

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.

BUILT IN SMEG DISH WASHER ADP8132 FILLS WITH WATER THEN DRAINS AND CUTS OUT. TRYED NEW MOTOR AND PCB NO BLOCKAGE NO LEAKS PLEASE HELP


Does the water just disappear down the drain as fast as it fills, with no obvious pumping sounds?

If so, it might just be that the waste hose is routed wrong after it comes out the back of the dishwasher. It needs to loop up to somewhere near the top of the machine before coming back down to go into the drain. (These machines have no outlet valve - they rely on this high point in the hose to keep the water in, then use a pump to push it "over the hump" when they need to drain).
