Question about Dishwashers

F&P dishwaher 601 ver2 wont drain -

Thanks for the troubleshooting re the above post. Have finally got round to swapping controllers and still have the same problem.
1.How do you check motor to see if its working properly?
2.How do you take motor assembley/heat unit etc apart? The area where the rotor fits into is worn. Would this possibly cause the problem?

Appreciate your help.

    Thanks Neil V. This was the problem. Followed the instructions and is now running fine. Think the stator was partially buggered as well as it was not tight in its housing - plastic clips were worn!

    Anyway thanks again for the help. I always try to fix my own probs and usually succeed eventually with a little help!

    One question. What does the flap washer on the drain hose actually do? As the end where it fits is broken and its $50 for a new drain hose so i left it out and it still sems to run great. Will it do any damage. i will replace the drain hose if need be!

Sorry for the delay!! If the area where the rotor fits is worn then this will definatley stop the water draining out. You will need to replace the stator assy and the rotor (if the faces are damaged).
HIS IS NOT AN EASY OPERATION..... The stator comes complete with the 2 o'rings. You will need to removed the wiring cover under the drawer, then remove the drain hose & fill hose from the dispenser, disconnect the wiring to the lower part of the controller. Squeeze the retaining clips at the rear of the drawer (underneath) you will then be able to remove the drawer completely from the cabinet. Flip the drawer over and carefully remove the wiring to the motor.lift up the retaining clip formthe locking ring, and turn the ring anti clockwise.The motor and heater plate will now be free to come away from the tub. I always lubricate the o'ring with washng up liquid which will allow the locking ring to slide easier. Good luck thisis not for the faint hearted!! Good Luck and let me know how you get on

    the flapper valve stops water re entering the drawer. You will probably get away with it so long as the drain hose exits the machine and is as high as possible, this will stop water flowing back into the machine. If you find this drawer always has water in the base you will need to change the drain hose. Cheers

Dishwaher does not drain cmpletely ?

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see you are having difficulty with your Frigidaire dishwasher not draining. Check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher because if that gets clogged then it will not allow your dishwasher to drain properly. Additionally, check to assure that the sump pump is hooked up correctly to allow proper siphoning of your dishwasher. If that is correct it could be a potential problem with your control panel or drain pump and I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

I'm looking for a tear down manual for the Maytag MDB7100AWS dishwasher. There is soap residue everywhere and it barely cleans anymore. I think I just need to give everything a good clean. Can you help?...

Before you go tearing into your dishwaher start with the basics. That would be inspecting the drain outlet and drain hose from the sink connection point all the way back to the pump outlet connection. Most of the time what happens is there is debris in the air-gap at the sink or the garbage disposal connection port gets clogged. Then because the dishwasher does not drain peoperly you end up with dirty dishes at the end of the cycle. <br /> <br /> Here is the manual you were looking for: <br /> <br /> <a href=""></a><br /> <br /> Check your drain first. <br /> <br /> There are other things like a broken pump impeller / housing or clogged wash arms that can cause the same symptom of soapy film on the dishes post cycle. Also the screen on the top of the motor pump assy can be covered with a film of food particles. <br /> <br /> Thanks for choosing FixYa.<br /> <br /> Kelly

Dishwaher wont drain-checked drain hose and its clean

The problem is most likely the drain valve. It is electrically operated and with your problem it is the most common cause.
