Question about Dishwashers
The simplest solution to your problem is to check that the dishwasher drain system ( filter, pump hoses and house drain ) are all in working order..Check the following:
1. drain filter- clean as necessary
2. drain hose - check for kinks or restrictions in line
3. house drain system- make sure your house drain system is not limiting the flow of water from the dishwasher..
I suggest you clean anything that may be trapped in your drain filter ( normally found near the bottom of your dishwasher at the lowest point) of any debris,.. Then try cleaning the detergent dispenser with white vinegar and wipe out any and all soap or food byproduct that may have built up in that area.. Then.. start a wash ( without dishes) on the hottest setting and after about 10 minutes.. add in 2 cups of white vinegar and let it finish.. All of this should be done without any dishes in the system to clean thngs up..
If after all this you still have a pumping problem, you may have a defective pump or it has some foreign material in it that will need to cleaned out. lastly, it would help if you provided a specific brand and model so that the solution can be tailored to your appliance.. Hope this helps..
