Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water 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 may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump 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 If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to 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 may need to be replaced.

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

The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified

Maybe a clogged pump. Take the pump a part and clean the filters and inside the pump. Check to see if there is food jammed in the hoses while you are at it.

MY FISHER AND PAYKEL DD603-SS BOTTOM DRAWER IS NOT DRAINING. HOW DO I FIX THIS?


Do you get any error code on the display?

Does the cycle complete or dishwasher keeps running?
Do you hear the pump trying to drain?

Is it happening in all wash cycles or some?

The easiest thing to do is to check if the filter at the base is clean.
I am assuming the kitchen drain is clear because the other drawer seems to work normally.

Hello,

Error code E20 relates to the pump/filter blocked.Drain the water either manually through the filter or drain hose.Check that filter is clean and pump can turn by hand.

Hope this helps.

E20 = Problems with water drain in wash phase ALARM CODES E20 Is the drain filter clean; Problems during draining phase (Machine tries to drain for 10 min without emptying the tub) Checks to do: E20 Is the drain pump working? Is the value of the pump about 200Ω? (Measure directly the connector by the board, between J2-2 and J2-7) ; If No Change the pump and run again Clean the filter; Is the draining system OK (drain hose and plumbing where machine is connected) Free and check the draining system; Is the pump blocked? Is there any burn mark on the control board; if yes Change the board E90 = Communication error between user interface and main board. Verify the connector between the main board and user interface board by plugging and unplugging the connector few times on both sides, OR replace the blue ribbon cable. The fault could have been caused by oxidized contacts in user interface plugged in the main board. Kind Regards David Marsh
