DIshwasher doesn't drain completely

Ok, so I just replaced the Thermal Fuse in the dishwasher and everything seemed to be fine at first. However now we notice that it isn't draining completely - there is a good inch/inch and a half in the bottom of the dishwasher. Any help is much appreciated. Daniel

    I have a whirlpool 280-0 dishwasher. It is not draining completely. I took out the drain hose and made sure it was free of blockage. It still does not drain completely. Could the is a problem with the float mechanism? The machine does drain some water, but never empties.

    Same Problem Dishwasher does not drain completely.
    When canceling cycle is pressed: 11/2 inch of water remains after 2-minute drain. No pump noise is heard but can feel a light vibration. Washer runs complete cycles and wash/water spray noise is heard but still after it completes the full cycle 11/2 inch of water in bottom. The screens are clear.
    Does the drain function have it's own pump?
    HELP PLEASE

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer
most commonly its the
Drain line/air gap Aclog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reasonthat a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point wherethe drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drainline. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hoseor hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting thedishwasher again.

    The easist way to tell if the drain line is clogged, and where it is clogged, is to open the air gap at the back top of the sink next to the sink faucet. if there is dirty water at the surface, then the clog is between the garbage disposal and the air gap. Remove the hose, and clean any debris out.

Whirlpool Point Voyager Dishwasher blows thermal fuse - pump motor draws 10A


Yes 10amp seems a lot of current being drawn by the pump motor. Not sure if it is safe to run dishwasher in this condition. One reason could be a leaky capacitor on the motor. Try to replace it. See item 26 on http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-GU1500XTLB0/1198/0130000/W0503069/00008

Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

My KUDS011JBSO undercounter dishwasher is blinking the normal wash light. What do I need to look for to fix this?


Hi


If light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or the thermal fuse, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the thermal fuse located on the control or the door switch that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water does not completely drain after a wash cycle. Everything else seems to work just fine.


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

Completely dead. breaker is fine. have live power at dishwasher. ???? Replaced heater, pump and check valve last year. No obvious burnt or disconnected wires.


There is a thermal fuse located behind the operator console on nearly all Kenmore or Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. There were some noted problems with certain model dishwashers where the wire gauge on the thermal fuse was too small and would heat up causing the thermal fuse to blow prematurely. There is a replacement kit available that includes a wire harness with a larger gauge wire that you simply splice in place. It handles current better and prevents the fuse from blowing prematurely. To ease your mind, there were no reports of fire hazard.

If you need to view a diagram of your dishwasher, enter your model number at the website mentioned for some excellent exploded view illustrations. The thermal fuse is usually listed under the "Control Panel Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool dishwasher first 5 years ok last year thermal fuse - again last week - 4 cycles later - at rinse leaves water in bottom but dishes are cleaqn Rob


Your drain is gummed up and it may be the hose too. First remove the trays. Then, clean out everything from the bottom of the inside dishwasher pan. Also clear the drain hole in it. BE CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT CUT YOUR SELF ON ANY BROKEN GLASS THAT MAY BE IN THE BOTTOM. Next, go under your sink (or where ever the hose hooks your dishwasher into your drain) remove the hose and clean around both sides of the connections (be sure to replace it exactly how it was to prevent leaks-also check for leaks during and after your first test run). Lastly, run the washer empty using only 1/4 of vinegar. Hope this helps!
