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.

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.

Whirlpool DU960PWKQ1 Dishwasher will not drain completely


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
