Dish washer water is clogged up


sounds like the pump is running but clogged. You might want to 1-remove as much water as possible by cupping it out manually,2- turn the breaker off and ensure no power, 3- take off bottom cover, 4-locate drain line (it will go into cabinet under kitchen sink-hooked up to sink line more than likely) and take off pump on dishwasher end and take off sink. you can remove the hose and see if and where clog is located.Grease is sometimes a culprit or other bits and pieces of food build up. You should also investigate the area where the drain line hooks into the unit and ensure that is clear. reconnect hose under sink and fish thru hole in side of cabinet to back of dishwasher. someone else or you can then reach under dishwasher to reconnect line to dishwasher. make sure drain is hose is connected properly at both ends! You'll probably need a phillips head screwdriver, 1/4" nutdriver and a pair of pliers

Dishwasher wont drain


If you will open the door on the front of the dishwasher, you should see two small screws going through tabs holding the dishwasher to the countertop. They are in the front, and above the door.
If you will remove those screws, you should be able to pull the dishwasher out about halfway into the room.
Do not pull it farther, because there are 3 important components you want to leave hooked up. The electric wires, the drain hose, and the fill hose.
Remove the front lower panel that hides the bottom of the dishwasher, and you should see a water pump made of plastic maybe the size of your fist, maybe on the right side.
The drain hose should be attached to that pump, as should electric wires. The drain hose goes to the sink drain in most cases
Find a way to catch the water and or sludge that may come out of that hose, and remove the hose from the pump that goes to the sink drain. You may need a pan that holds a quart or more liquid.
See if that hose is clear of being plugged up.
Sometimes too much food left on the dishes can plug up the pump or the hose. Examine the pump to see if it is plugged.
If the hose goes to the garbage disposal, perhaps that is where the plug-up is.

Electrolux dishwasher with error code 11


Hello Jason Johnson - Typically error code E11 indications that there is an issue with the drain valve, possibly the main control board is timing out before receiving status of drain valve. I strongly recommend contacting a professional to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve.

Can i connect my Hoover HD73M Dishwasher to a cold feed?


First off, you need a hot water feed line for your dishwasher, not cold water

Secondly, if you have a garbage disposal installed on your sink you can connect the dishwasher drain hose to the side port on the garbage disposal. That's what that little port is for anyway. If you do have a garbage disposal and hook the dishwasher hose to it then make sure you take a hammer and screw driver and knock out the little plastic plug that's inside the garbage disposal port before hooking up the hose to it, if you don't you'll flood your kitchen.

If you don't have a garbage disposal on your sink, then you're going to have to replace a piece of your sink's drain piping with a wye (Y) tailpiece. The tailpiece has a small branch that comes off it to where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Regardless of which way you hook up the drainage and water lines, make sure you test out the work you did by running the dishwasher and keeping an eye on it. I can't tell you the number of times i've seen people hook up stuff like this and not test it and then when they go to use the dishwasher it floods the kitchen..... usually when people are sleeping at night. Test your work.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher that seems to leave a bit of water inside. Model 3631435598. Is this normal finish mode? Seem the water would get stale. I have no manual can anyone help with either ?


Hi Doc!

You know? If I had to postulate an educated guess, I'd wager that your dishwasher's (DW) drain hose isn't hooked up properly under the sink. When it's not hooked up right, water from the sink will siphon down into the DW making you think that there's a problem with the DW when in reality the problem is elsewhere. Kinda tricky, huh?

Anyway... I put together some photo's that show the incorrect installation and the correct installation of DW drain hoses. Check it out.

b36b26d.jpg
The downward sloping hose allows water from the sink to go to the DW.

3939d29.jpg
The "loop" (actually called a "vacuum break") won't allow water to go to your DW.

Here's a schema of the layout...
e762281.jpg
So the drain hose from the DW always has to loop upwards to keep gravity from weilding its' wicked hand and drawing water down to the inner most depths of your dishwasher.

So, that's the first thing to check, Doc. (<---- that was my Uncle's name, btw. He owned and operated a microwave repair shop back in the late 70's.) If you find the hose under the sink looks like the first pic, just loosen the clamp, pull as much slack from the DW as you can, form a loop like in pic #2, tighten the clamp (to hold it in place) then tie off the hose to a stationary location (like the hot or cold line feeding your faucet)

There ya go! Fixed! Ain't it cool? How easy was that? What about 20 minutes? Maybe less? All you needed was a 5/16" nutdriver and some tape! Too cool.

Don't forget to rate me, OK? My self esteem is counting on you.

Oh! If you find that the drain is properly installed, let me know. We'll go deeper into the solution, OK?

GE Triton won't drain completely


Hi Tina! (say Hi to the Family, too)

Your drain hose from the dishwasher (DW) was installed incorrectly after the DW was moved back into place. Good news!!! Easy fix. All it takes is a 5/16" nut driver (or socket) and some vinyl electrical tape.

Look under the sink, you'll see the white drain hose hooked up to (most likely) your disposal. You'll notice that it just kinda slopes downhill 'til it disappears through the cabinet, right? Well, the slope in question is actually the culprit! It's siphoning water from your sink and down into the DW. Everytime you run water in the sink, some of it goes over to your DW instead of down the drain. Go figure, right?

Here's the fix... You have to re-route your drain line to make it have an upside down "J" in it before it connects to the disposal.

Use your 5/16 and loosen the clamp at the disposal and remove the hose. Pull on the hose to get as much slack as you can from the DW and into where you're working. Now route the hose between the sinks (the recessed area there underneath) and THEN into the disposal. Now tighten the hose clamp to secure the hose to the disposal. For extra measure, use your tape to secure the hose to a water line in the back by the water valves.

Seriously easy job, Tina and Family. Maybe 15 minutes.

LG Dishwasher - drain hose replacement


Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)

The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.

In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....

Hope this helps!

Dishwasher not draining - Kenmore dishwasher model 15754


depending on the age of this unit it may have food blocking what is called the "check valve".
on most models it is mounted right on the outlet of the pump housing. one model uses a 4 inch plastic tube style device and is about 1/2 inch on the pump and 1" on the hose. inside of it is where the food items can block the check valve. remove the hose and unscrew the check valve from the pump and see if something is blocking it.
on newer units the check valve is built into the drain hose, if you hose has a 90 degree elbow molded into it where the hose hooks up to the drain pump. once again take the hose off and look inside the hose or try to blow through the hose and see if the hose is clear.
good luck tom

Installation


It sounds like you have connected your dishwasher to a garbage disposal.

  1. The 2 hoses provided with your dishwasher connect together.
  2. You run the drain hose through a hole in the bottom/back of your cabinet, then up to the top of the cabinet, then connect it to the drain on the garbage disposal. (The reason that you run your drain up to the top of the cabinet is: This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher.)
  3. Be sure to knock the plug out of the drain of the garbage disposal. A garbage disposal is designed to work with or without a dishwasher. The plug is in the center of the drain. The best way to knock this plug out is to pull the garbage disposal, and with a flat screwdriver, knock the plug out.
  4. Then remove the plug from the disposal. Reinstall the disposal.
  5. Install the drain hose. The drain hose will connect right up to the disposal using the clamp provided with the dishwasher.
This should help you. If not please attach more info.
