If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap Aclog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reasonthat a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point wherethe drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drainline. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hoseor hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting thedishwasher again.

Pump Yourdishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directlyto the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You canreach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to removethe lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Lookfor an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spinsaround. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through thespray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which issimilar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impellerpushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up thepump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replacethem.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Manydishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. Whenelectricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts thewater to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever,sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly.Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you mayhave to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, themotor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drainvalve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse thedirection of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't havea drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to thepump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor Ifthe motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First checkto be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section"It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it mayneed to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible togetting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run thedishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin themotor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it.Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Partof what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If thetimer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need toreplace the timer. This problem is uncommon.Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Can you replace just the dryer on a frigidaire gallery heavyduty?


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

From what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher is not draining. Before contacting a professional technician I would advise you to check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher tub or your drain line to assure there is no restriction. The filter is located at the bottom of your tub under the spray arm. If that is dirty it could cause your dishwasher to not drain. Additionally if your drain line has a clog or restriction it will not allow water to pass through. If both components appear to be clear I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a diagnosis. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I have an asko T760 Butterfly dryer. It is stuck on P2 but will not run. I shut off the unit, turned back on. The LCD flashes between P1-P4 and what they are, such as extra dry, dry, normal dry, & iron...


Hi.

The machine is telling you that there is overfill, f2 and 4 are faults with overfill system. Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead also indicate an over fill fault :

"1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray"

Here all diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have a brand new dishwasher. it doesn't seem to


The reason that the dishwasher is not drying completely is that newer model dishwashers do not have as powerful a heating element to dry the dishes. This is for several reasons mainly due to the manufacturer attempting to reduce power consumption by the machine. The condensation is caused by the same thing. Not much you can do to fix the problem other than towel them off by hand if you dont want to put them away wet.

No water in washing/rinse cycle of dishwasher


It sounds as if the warter inlet valve (solinoid) isn't working and might have to be replaced. If everything else opeates fine, (unit pumps and sprays water that you added to it, pumps out and drains OK, then it is very likely the inlet valve has failed.

You can check for a blockage in the water inlet line, but unless you have a lot of sediment in your water or use a private well for your water supply, that would be a remote possibility, but worth taking a look at before buying replacement parts, etc.

You can remove the water supply hose/line and check for proper water flow and see if there is anything blocking the water from getting into the dishwasher. Many uints have a filter screen installed in them, so check that to see if it is blocked. Otherwise, look at the inlet valve and see if it is working correctly and go from there in replacing it.

One last thing, make sure the water supply line is actually providing water to the dishwasher, sometimes the water valves some installers use do get blocked, depending on how it was installed.

Dryer stops and won't start again


hi
Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.

Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.

Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.

Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.

Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.

To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.

cleaners are available from Lowe's home depot appliances parts stores etc but it sounds to me like you have a drain problem check your drain line where it attaches to your sink and where it goes into your sink for blockage take off the bottom kick plate and you will see a black solenoid with a silver shaft and a white plastic rocker and spring make sure that the silver shaft moves up and down freely if not replace that seloinoid or call for service
