Question about Dishwashers
Hi, My dishwasher does not appear to be draining - any ideas what I should do? We had to fit a longer drainage pipe when we integrated it to reach the sink so just wondering if this might affect it? Thanks CP

open the front door. On each side of the inside of the door are various long screws, unscrew these and the old door will fall off. discard the old door and follow the same steps in reverse to put the new door on. It took me 10 mins to do. Hope this helps

I would not recomment putting chemicals in the dishwasher. There is usually some kind of filter in the bottomt at you can easily take out and clean. It's common to have parts of labels and plastic clog this up.
Try removing and cleaning this first. It may also be reached from a separate hatch in the fronc of your dishwasher, depending on the make and model. Just make sure it's securly back in place before you start it afterwards, or you may flood your kitchen.
You may also try to disconnect the hose and blow through it to see if you may be able to blow back any objects stuck there.
If none of this helps your problem may be in the pump, and then it's usually a job for professionals.

SOURCE: Neff Dishwasher won't drain
I've had this problem a couple of times with my dishwasher. In both cases, the cause was a shard of broken glass that had managed to get past the filters and jam itself underneath the impellor. Hard to see, but easy to fix. First ladle out the water.
Pull off the lower rotor arm, unscrew the filter and take out the filter bowl, tray and cylindrical filter. Get as much water as you can out of the filter cavity.
Then, using a Torx-20 driver, remove the screw holding the impellor cover and lift the cover off. (this is the small bit of plastic at the left end of the filter cavity.) Check whether the impellor can rotate freely by spinning it with your finger several times - if it jams or grinds, then there's probably something jammed under it. (It may seem to be fine at first, so do check thoroughly, as any debris can move around with the water flow and only jam occasionally) You may have to use a cocktail stick or similar to poke out anything that's stuck underneath.
Glass is a particular problem, since it's almost impossible to see when there's any water around (it's easy to cut yourself too!)
Anyway, that's worked twice for me now - and I didn't have to even move the machine out of its cupboard to fix it.
Hope that helps.
