Water won't drain

I have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. I have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. I poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. I have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no avail....I don't know what is causing this issue....can you help me out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do I fix this and will it be very expensive.
Thanks

    Hi nav40,

    Thanks for answering my post this is much appreciated! The d/w is situated opposite the sink so there is no garbage disposal. The only connections are the drainpipe and the water connection. I have waited over 8hrs thinking there may have been an overheating cut off or something but it has happened again today. The digital display says 1:11 when it starts and it completely powers off at 57 during wash cycle. This is frustrating to say the least! Could it be the circuit board? The d/w is only a yr old Grrr!



    Thanks in advance.

    Haha thanks but it ran out 6 months ago, I initially did think of that and then remembered that I got the shortest warranty as new products shouldn't break...yeah right! lol

Hi fixitfran,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. You have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. You poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. You have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no avail....you don't know what is causing this issue....can I help you out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do you fix this and will it be very expensive.

Have you recently replaced the garbage disposal? Sometimes the installer forgets to remove the knockout plug. All of the disposal manufacturers plug the d/w connection in case it is installed where there is no d/w. If there is a d/w, the plug must be removed.

Feel free contact me again!

    Hi again;



    If we can now be certain there is no clog we can move on. If the d/w washes but just does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle then it sounds like a bad control board. I don't recomend this type of repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. Wish I could do more.

    Hi once more,



    I had one additional thouight. If, by chance, the d/w is still under warranty, use it. They will want your future bussiness.
