We had this problem and found out that the pipe leading away from the house was clogged. Have a plumber look (with a camera) down your clean out, and see if that is the problem. They can snake it from the clean out and clear out tree roots or whatever is the problem.

The drain hose vibrates while dishwasher is running unless sink faucet is on, which stops the vibration.


Try throttling back (reducing the water flow) the valve that feeds the machine. With the sink tap/faucet running the pressure into the dishwasher is reduced. Is the feed pipe kinked or blocked in some way as there might be a sensor in the machine that doesn't like it when water is "jetted" in under pressure. It would act like putting your thumb over the end of a hose when washing a car.

Water backs up from the drain in my dishwasher and smells. what is the problem?


Two things can cause this problem:
1. The check valve in your dishwasher may be defective, allowing water and food debris to seep (or run) back into your dishwasher.
2. Your drain hose may not be "mounted up" the way it should be. Look under your sink. Look at how your drain hose is connected to your garbage disposal. If the hose runs down to the floor of your cabinet and into your dishwasher, that is wrong. Instead, it should be mounted up so that water from the sink and garbage disposal would have to flow up first to get into the dishwasher. If you do this, then even if you have a bad check-valve in the dishwasher, it will prevent the problem (or greatly reduce the problem) of dirty water flowing back into your dishwasher.

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

When the dishwasher is in rinse cycle the water over flows out of the faucet near the kitchen sink.


This means your drain is backing up. You can try removing the J-trap under the sink and clearing it its the U shaped pipe. If this does not correct your problem you will need to call a plumbing co to have them out to snake it out. Hope this helps. MJ

My dishwasher spits water out from the spiket on top of sink next to the faucet whay should i do


it is normal for a little water to come out here. if it is excessive, you have to make sure the drain pipes under the sink are clean and clear. pull out the p-trap and clean it out completely.
also, at least 1 sink should be empty and unplugged to allow proper ventilation when the dishwasher drains. this is easier to try out than the p-trap.
the only other thing you can do is put an extension on the y-shaped pipe under the 'spitter'. this will allow the water to cross from 1 side of the 'y' to the other farther from your sink top. good luck

My sink is backing up on bothe sides


Your drain line is clogged, beyond the sinks. You might be able to use a plunger to clear it. Seal off one the drains and use the plunger in the other. After you get it cleared, run pure hot water for a few minutes to melt the junk out of the line. When using the disposer, use cold water only, NEVER hot. If this doesn't get your drain flowing, you will have to snake the drain--to the main drain.

Dishwasher fills with water when running faucet


The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

Does Not Drain ... We Don't even Use it


I know you're probably not needing this anymore, but for anyone else who has a similar problem...

Your dishwasher is installed wrong. You should never get water back into it from washing dishes in the sink. (of course - unless it is installed wrong) The "drain air gap" that you should see on top of your sink is to prevent water from back-flowing into your dishwasher. Sometimes plumbers put in a "stand pipe" (a pipe that goes way up in your sink cabinet underneath, but just is actually the pipe from the dishwasher and they loop it up higher than the bottom of the sink level in the cabinet. That way if you see water in your sink, most likely you can figure out why it is backed up before it gets higher than the stand pipe and goes into your dishwasher. Since you don't see the air gap device on top of the sink then I'm guessing whoever installed your dishwasher either put in a stand pipe and didn't put it up high enough, or more likely didn't put one in at all and therefore you are getting back-flow into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher issue


Have had this problem twice on my DWI614. First time engineer came out and I watched what he did and asked questions. He removed panel at bottom of dishwasher (2 screws) after removing facia panel from kitchen as it is a built in dishwasher. To the right is the drain pump. Remove 1 retaining screw and hose retaining clip. Ease out the drain pump and make sure to have some cloth beneath as residual water will flush out. Before I did this the second time I removed as much water from inside with a small cup first. Both times I had blockages in the drain pump. First was a piece of glass and second some food. I also pulled the drain pipe forward and blew through to make sure path to sink was clear. Clear out and reassemble. Start a simple program before putting the front back panel back on and you can touch the drain opump and feel it working as the water drains properly. That was my fix both times, good luck.
