    well I could hear something for a second when I would turn it on. but it would stop. We took it apart, could not see anything that was obviously the problem...put it back together and it worked. So now we don't know. there was some water inside the door panal because the dishwasher is right next to the sink and water was running down over the door. but there were not many wires there so I don't know if that was the problem or not.

Flooding the sink won't have anything to do with the dishwasher.unless the check valve on the dishwasher got stuck closed. Can you hear the pump come on?

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.

Dishwasher flooded


That happened to us and our plumber came. He said our pipe under the sink was bent up so the water wasn't draining properly. Also, check for clogs. Use Drano or a snake to get all the gunk out of the drain.

Dishawasher floods


Two possible reasons come to my mind. First, and simplest, I've seen Dishwasher installations that did not use a air gap in the Dishwasher drain (usually a dome device mounted on the back of the kitchen sink or sometimes mounted in the wall just above the sink in older homes).When an air gap is not used, it is imperative that a high loop is formed in the dishwasher drain line, and tied up in that position (usually under the kitchen sink,as high as possible- the underside of the sink faucet usually works, or a screw into the bracing under the counter top to wrap a soft wire looped around the drain hose to hold it there permanently). If you do not use a air gap, or have a high loop in the dishwasher drain hose, then likely you are getting a back flow of dirty water into your dishwasher from the drain plumbing to which the dishwasher is connected (likely the garbage disposer or the tail from the sink basin.) So every time you either run the disposer (if you have one), or drain the sink basin, some of that contaminated, dirty water may be siphoning back into the dishwasher There are some exceptions, as some dishwashers including some whirlpool models, have a anti siphon ball device built into the drain pump housing.( You should also check your local plumbing code. They may require an air gap in your dishwasher drain line regardless of anything else.) Secondly,the water inlet valve may be sticking open, or not completely seating closed after the fill cycle. This could be indicated by a very gradual accumulation of clean, clear water in the bottom of the tub, to the point of completely filling the bottom of the tub to the point of overflow at the dam at the front bottom of the tub. The speed of overflow will be determined by how poorly the diaphragm inside the valve is seating. If you suspect this may be the problem, pull the rubber hose off the OUTLET end of the valve, with the machine in the OFF position or better yet UNPLUGGED (water and electricity do not mix, and can KILL you) ,and see that there is not a continuous flow or trickle of water. If there is any flow of water, in this scenario, then you have a bad inlet water valve, and the valve should be replaced rather than attempting to repair. Be sure to reconnect the rubber hose to the inlet valve before plugging the machine back in and attempting to run the machine, or you will have a high pressure flood, and likely electrical shorting under the machine which could likely ruin the machine.

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.

Water will not drain .cycle stops , will not start even on new cycle


The water will have to be evacuated first. there may be a blockage either in the outlet of the dishwasher or the drain connection under the sink. The dishwasher tries to drain at the very start of the cycle. If this doesnt happen then a new cycle wont start.

Fills arbitrarily not holding any water after a full cycle. All seems well and on any given day it will have filled without warning and floods floor


Check your drain hose to where it connects under the sink. If it is connected to the garbage disposer, and not looped upwards before it runs back to the dishwasher, it may just be drain water from the sink running back to the dishwasher. Even if it hooks up to a "t" spout under the sink, and the drains run a little slow, water can still run back to the dishwasher. The ideal set up is to have it connect to the drainage, run up behind the bowls of the sink, and then back to the dishwasher.
If this is not the answer, then you may have a defective fill valve that is allowing water to seep into the machine (very unusual in dishwashers). Also note that water valves require 23 psi of pressure to seat closed and if the incoming pressure is less than that, even a new valve may have the same issue.
Good luck and let me know how you make out, and if you have any other questions.

Lights on but wash


I assume you can't even hear water running. If that's the case, you may have a faulty or stuck water solenoid valve. Under your sink, there is a water line that connects directly to your dishwasher. That line is always on, so it's always under pressure, unless you turn off that valve under the sink. Therefore, something has to prevent water from flowing into the dishwasher, and that something is typically a solenoid valve. The solenoid typically gets it's power when you start your dishwasher. If the solenoid is stuck (most typical problem) a little gentle persuasion from the handle of a screwdriver may be all you need to unstick it.

Water comes back into the washer from the sink


Hello,
If this is happening it is because your dishwasher is plumbed into the drain wrong. Even if the drain is slow or slitghly plugged you still should not have this problem.
The drain from the dishwasher should go into the sink tail piece high up under the sink with a "Y" fitting. The drain hose should also loop up higher then the bottom of the sink at some point. This should keep the water from the sink from backing up into the dishwasher.
You need to either check the drain yourself and reroute it or have someone doit for you.
