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.

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.

Does not want to drain the water after washing circle


Hi.

Start checking the drain hose at the back, and the hose attached to the drain pump, located at the bottom of the appliance. After that access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch. Also check the lid is closing well. Those are the only easy fixes.

The first parts to check are door latch and drain system.

The timer performs an additional check on the door latch before advancing to spin. The door switch it is tested by jumping its contacts, or by reading impedance to check if the switch is opening and closing the circuit (you will need a multimeter).

About the drain system,
if the machine does not drain, then the cycle will not advance to spin.

The electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle. If there is a drain problem, then the machine will not spin.


The first step will be accessing the drain pump.


Kenmore top loaders' washer pump is accessed from the bottom side of the appliance.
Get ready to collect the water that will come from inside the tub.

Check also the drain hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.

If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.

Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.

Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

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.

the drain hose is indeed attached to the pump area... sounds like you may be on well water if it is breaking the hose down that bad... if not that is unusual to have hoses break down like that... its not hard to replace the hose as they just have hose clamps on them ,but yes you do have to tear apart unit to get down to drain pump assembly... some of the units have a front kick plate you can remove to get to them and some you actually go into from the rear... i didn't look this model up but we work on all appliances and normally there is a way to access the drain pump.... some units front loaders you can actually tilt up and the bottom plate will remove to gain access to it also... just going to have to look around and make access the easiest way for you... once your in though it is a simple task to replace hose...

Wont drain


Hi

If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you’ll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn’t work then you’ll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn’t work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.

We need to replace the drain hose in our Kenmore Elite HE3t washing machine. How do I get access into the machine to replace the hose? Is it from the top or the back?


To replace the drain hose, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer and turn it around so you can access the rear panel.

2. Use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain hose. This will remove any existing residual water that remains in the drain line and pump minimizing any mess you may have to clean up later. NOTE: There is about a gallon of residual water that normally remains between the lower wash basket, drain lines and pump.

3. Remove the rear panel by loosening the screws around the perimeter of the back panel. With the screws removed,the panel should lift off. NOTE: There is a smaller access in the center of the back panel that can also be removed. Removing the entire back allows for better access though. Trying to work through the center access can be a cut hazard due to the sharp edges on the metal.

4. Move around the the front of the washer and remove the lower toe panel under the door. You may have to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then lift off.

Additionally removing the front toe panel will give you full access to the drain pump from the FRONT and the REAR. The pump sits closer to the front of the washer where you can easily access the hose clamps. The drain hose inserts from the rear, however.

Since you have the washer apart, now would be a good time to check the drain pump clean out trap to ensure there is no debris build up that can restrict drainage. The following link explains the recommended procedures to check the drain pump:

If you have any questions about any of this advice, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
