SOURCE: drain pump won't stop

that usually happens when there is water in the base of the dishwasher where the motors are. Check to see if there is water in the base. This will trigger a float that turns off the water and on the drain pump.Remove the water and it should fill. However note that water came from somewhere, so find where it is leaking.

SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

This is a on going problem with asko and they keep jerking everyone around with this defect. I had a repair person come over and used a turkey baster with a 7" rubber hose attached to the end of the baster. He took off the kick plate and inserted the hose end in the overflow tray and pull about of 12 onces of water from the tray. He is a asko repair facility and says it is a comon problem and has made the repair solution on his own as it is easier then taking the hole dishwaser out and tip it on the side just to drain the water. This has been on going for 3 years and each time i called asko it was like i was the only person having such a problem. I now do this every 3 months and the problem is on going. What a piece of junk. Purchased at Marcellas appliances in Schenectady,NY. They also know how to avoid the problem in fact there repair person left out most of the screws so the next time it would take less time to drain the water. DDDDDont buy ASKO. Michael Foote

SOURCE: Pump Runs On After Water Is All Drained Out?

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty water level switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.
Check if the floating sensor is stuck or faulty.
Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

Hi
Plugged system or a jammed drain pump can cause these issues, also make sure the drain hose is not blocked. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel

WHY DOES THE MOTOR ON MY SAMSUNG DISHWASHER RUN ALL THE TIME AND THE LIGHT ABOVE HEAVY BLINK?


Yes, you've got a leakage error, which means water has leaked down into the base of the dishwasher. The drain pump runs all the time, trying to get all the water out, but the drain pump can't get to the water down in the base. (Those North Korean engineers/designers aren't too bright.) You'll have to pull the dishwasher out, pull off the side panels, and dry up all the water before that drain pump will stop running. But you still have the problem of figuring out where the leak came from and fixing the problem before you can use the dishwasher. The most common source of leakage in a Samsung DW is the drain pump and/or drain hose.

test this steps and fix it. God bless you

Belt, Water Pump

Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump

If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller

The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit

If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.

Drain Valve

The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer

If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.


Drain Hose

If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve

If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is located in or at the outlet of the pump that the drain hose attaches to. Sometimes the check valve is accessed from the inside of the unit depending on the model.

Check Ball

If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

I have a SGV43A03GB Bosch dishwasher that has run perfectly for several years and now stopped. Essentially all the lights remain on, there is water in the pan (indeed it fills after having been emptied...


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect. Also if the Inlet valve is staying OPEN and the drain pump is working as soon as the machine is switched on then it can be fault in the controller unit.

Drain pump runs continuously. Nothing else happens!


Water had accumulated in the sump - a plastic tray at the bottom of the dishwasher which catches any leaked water. This operates a float switch which makes the drain pump run all the time. The fix was to tilt the dishwasher backwards to drain away the water. It isn't filling up again, so I'm not sure where the water came from, but I'll keep an eye on it!

Shu43c Drain pump is very loud! This's supposed to be a quiet one


Drain pumps are relativley cheaply manufactured with basic technology, we can not even determine which way they spin, if something got into the pump it could be creating the noise, otherwise it could be the pump itself which will detereate over time, also if these run dry they seam to make more noise.
