Question about Dishwashers
You said, blocked drain in my dish washer
Try to turn off the dishwasher.
THEN turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system!
If not then we go on to this next issue.
Here are 5 possibilities!
If you can not do these checks you may need a pro to help you!
The water pump is driven by the drive motor. If the motor is defective, the pump will not operate and the water will remain in the tub.
Check the drain line for kinks. If the line checks out visually, it could be an obstruction in the line.
Most but not all dishwashers incorporate a reversible motor. By using a pump impeller and wash impeller, the action of washing and draining is accomplished by the reversing of the motor. If the drain impeller in the pump is defective, the water will not drain. Check the pump impeller for proper operation
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.
If a garbage disposal has recently been installed, make sure the knock out for the dishwasher drain hose has been removed. You should also make sure that no items under the sink have been pushed into the drain hose. Any kink or crmp in the hose can cause it to stop draining.
Let me know how it goes!
