Hello Oriel7,
I am assuming that your dishwasher is built in and not a portable model. That being the case, and assuming that the drain was originally installed correctly and feeing into your house drain near your kitchen sink, you may need to pull the dishwasher out from between the cabinets. To do that is fairly involved however I would ask why you need to replace your drain hose. If you see a section damaged or leaking then you may be able to remove a section anmd splice another tube to that. If that is not going to solve your problem then you will probably want to gain access to that drain house from the toe kick panel beneath the bottom of the door. That panel should be removable ( depending on the model ) and access to where your drain hose attaches will vary from model to model. If you cannot reach in from the front to remove and replace it, you will need to unhook your dishwasher from the cabinetry and slide it out for access to the connection point. The degree of difficulty doing this will vary from installation to installation and wil be dictated by the way your water supply line is attached as well as how your ac power is applied. Newer methods of bringing ac power to the dishwasher are similar to any other appliance in that the electrician will provide an outlet receptacle that you can plug your dishwasher in to or out of. Older techniques 'hard wire' the power in a junction box in the bottom of the dishwasher and a bot more involved in disconnecting. If that is the method your dishwasher is installed, you will need to remove or disable power to that wiring by swithcing off the appropriate circuit breaker or power disconnect. In any and all cases, the process of removing the dishwasher from bewteen two base cabinets is not very easy. Please elaborate on the reason why you need to replace your drain hose and the method your dishwasher has been installed. If you can provide more details, I can help you resolve your problem. Good luck.. hope this helps you.,..
Regards

How to fix samsung dishwasher code se


The code is 5E
If your dishwasher is displaying error code 5E, It can be caused by a kinked drain hose.
If the drain hose is kinked, there will be an excessive amount of water in the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle has been completed.
In order to access the drain hose you need access to the back of the dishwasher. If your dishwasher was recently installed, contact the installer to move the dishwasher and inspect the drain hose.
If the drain hose is not kinked, but your dishwasher is still not draining, service is required.

Replace dishwasher drain hose F&P DW60


The attached assembly document might be helpful. To access the drain hose at the dishwasher end your best bet is to pull the dishwasher out from under kitchen cabinet and lay it on the floor on its side. Make sure you disconnect the mains power and the hose connections first. The hose should be accessible from the bottom of dishwasher.

The water does not drain


Hello,

Follow the below diagnosis:

1. Drain Hose

It is quite common for a dishwasher to not drain because either the drain hose or the air gap (if the unit has one) is clogged up. Drain hose clogs commonly occur where the hose is attached to the main household drain line, or where the hose connects with the garbage disposer. Try removing the drain hose to unclog any debris. Don't forget to reattach the hose before you start your dishwasher again.

Checking a drain hose

Note:
Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other check. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

Before you can check your dishwasher's drain hose for a blockage, you have to gain access to the hose. First remove the lower kickplate panel located below the door. This panel can be removed by removing a couple of screws that are located either above or below the panel. On some models, the dishwasher door has to be open to access and remove the screws, but then closed in order to remove the panel.

With the panel removed, locate the drain hose. It is connected to the pump located below the lower spray arm. The drain hose runs from the pump to the sink drain, or to the air gap on top of the sink. There is a second hose leading from the pump that is a recirculation hose. When you are checking the drain hose for a blockage, you should check the recirculation hose as well.

Place a shallow pan below the hose to catch any spills. Disconnect the drain hose form the pump by pinching the wire clamp with pliers and then sliding the clamp up the hose. Remove the hose from the pump assembly and wiggle the hose in various locations. This may help to loosen the blocked debris.

Try running water through the hose to loosen and unblock the debris. A garden hose at full pressure is efficient to use for this task. Now disconnect the recirculation hose and check it for blockage in the same manner.

Once you have successfully removed any and all blockages from either or both hoses, reconnect each hose to the dishwasher. Replace the clamps, and replace the lower panel. Reconnect the dishwasher's power supply and run the dishwasher to make sure it is running proplerly.

Note:
Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other repair. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

Place a shallow pan below the hose to catch any spills. Disconnect the drain hose form the pump by pinching the wire clamp with pliers and then sliding the clamp up the hose. Remove the hose from the pump.

Reconnect on end of a new hose to the dishwasher's pump assembly and the other end of the new hose to the sink drain.

Replace the clamps, and replace the lower panel. Reconnect the dishwasher's power supply and run the dishwasher to make sure it is functioning proplerly.


2. Pump Assembly

The pump assembly is comprised of a pump, wash impeller, and drain impeller. The pump ejects the water from the unit, the wash impeller pushes water through the spray arm, and the drain impeller directs the water towards the drain port. Examine your dishwasher's pump assembly. Clean out any debris that may be blocking it. Replace the pump assembly if any of its parts appear to be worn or defective.


3. Belt

It isn't very common, but sometimes a dishwasher's pump assembly is driven by a belt. If that belt becomes worn and defective, then it cannot properly run the pump that drains your dishwasher's tub. If your dishwasher uses a drive belt, examine it now. If it shows signs of wear, replace it.

Examining a dishwasher belt

Note:
Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other part examination. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

Locate and gain access to your dishwasher's belt. It will be located behind the lower kickplate panel. The belt will be made of rubber and will be about twenty-five inches long. Some are clear in color, while others are black. The belt will be looped around a pulley at the base of the pump assembly and around a pulley at the base of the motor. The motor will likely be towards the right, with the pump assembly located closer to the middle.

You do not have to move the dishwasher away from the wall in order to access and/or replace its belt. You only need to remove the lower kickplate/access panel. There will be a few screws holding the lower access panel in place. Remove these screws to remove the panel. You may need to first open the door to remove the screws, but then close the door to remove the panel.

With the lower panel removed, the belt is fully exposed. Closely examine your dishwasher's belt. You are looking for signs of wear such as little cracks in the rubber and places where the belt may be stretched. If you find signs that your belt is worn, replace it.

Depending on how much your worn belt is stretched, removing it might not prove to be too difficult. Replacing it, on the other hand, may require some tight maneuvering. You might want to try this tip:

1. Place one end of the above the pump pulley, around the pump housing.
2. Place the other end of the belt around the motor pulley.
3. Carefully roll the belt down from the pump housing to the pump's pulley.


Good luck.

Water does not drain,how do I access the pump


Hi jolanda03,

Remove the Top Panel, fastened by 2 screws at the back, Then remove the right Side Panel, you should see the Drain Pump attached to the sump. To test it, you could attach direct power to the two pins on it (Alternating current, so position of connectors unimportant). If it works, it could be either that it is not receiving power from the PC Board, or the sump is clogged inside (Filter).

Hope this helps, if it did please rate with 4 thumbs up. A testimonial would be nice too. :-)

Water wont drain


You use your dishwasher so often with no problems that any issue can seem like a major disaster. But you can fix a drainage problem with a trip to the hardware or plumbing supply store and a few minutes of effort. If your dishwasher doesn't drain properly, the drain hose is probably kinked or damaged, interfering with the flow of water out of the dishwasher. You can fix the problem by replacing the drain hose yourself.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions And 4 Tools (Material) Needed To Solve The Drain Problem.

  • Shallow dish,Pliers or screwdriver,Replacement drain hose,Replacement hose clamps
  1. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. Turn off the dishwasher's power supply by unplugging it (under the sink) or turning off the appropriate circuit breaker.
  2. Pull the dishwasher all the way out from the cabinet so you can access the drain hose and pump near the back.
  3. Locate the drain pump and hose. The drain hose is the larger of the two hoses attached to the dishwasher and is generally located close to the bottom back of the dishwasher.
  4. Place a shallow dish under the drain pump. Loosen the clamp on the drain hose close to the drain pump, using pliers or a screwdriver. Pull the drain hose off of the pump, allowing any water to drip into the dish below.
  5. Remove the other end of the drain hose from the garbage disposal or drain by loosening the hose clamp and pulling the hose off of the connection.
  6. Attach the replacement hose to the drain pump and the drain or garbage disposal. Attach new hose clamps, and tighten them to hold them in place.
  7. Turn the power and water back on, and run the dishwasher through a cycle to make sure that the dishwasher drains properly and the hose doesn't leak. Tighten the hose clamps if you find any leaks.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Water not draining


There are several components to check when your dishwasher refuses to drain water. You need to check your drain hose, your pump assembly, timer, motor and drain valve and/or solenoid.
Most of the time it is the drain hose that is responsible for such problem. To check the drain hose, please follow the steps below:
  1. Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other check. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

The water is not draining? how do i fix it model # mdb7100awb serial# 27721893zq 5.5 amo heat 6.o amp


If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for a blockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

If all the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.

You cannot access the drain hose "internally" you will need to pull out the dishwasher and probably on the left side if facing underneath the drain hose will be connected with a screw clamp most likely.
