My dishwasher won't drain the water

We are having a problem with the water not draining from our Frigidaire Gallery FDB636GF dishwasher. The water just keep filling up and when we push the overflow it does nothing. I have standing water in the bottom of the washer. What could the problem be. It happened a couple of times and we were able to drain it finally. Then we have used it for several times without an issue. Now it is happening again and leaking all over our floor. Thank you for your help.

    I have a DW Frigidaire FDB636GFS5 , and it keeps filling with water, I have to drain manually every 12 hours or so. What should I check? If I turn the main knob it drains, so the pump is working fine. Looks like the water valve is not closing completely. Any Help? Thanks!!!!

    Inlet valve is not completely closing probably due to a piece of trash that got through.

Check under your sink where the hose connects to the tail piece. I had this problem and the piece of the tail piece where the hose connects was stopped up.If the drain hose runs to an airlock mounted on your sink, then check it too.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining

I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use

Hi BB,
There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?

The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...

Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...

The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...

I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.

After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.

Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB2810LDC1 not draining

Sure its redeemable if you have the time and money. If I understand you correctly when you move the lowewr spray arm the water drains out? If this is the case then more than likely its a pump motor or solenoid. Reason I say this is on the bottom of the spray arm is a impeller and under that is filter and then pump impeller that drains the water. If its not draining but will by hand then its your pump motor or solenoid. When you start the washer then press cancel/drain do you hear anything? Maybe a humming sound. One more thing could be a thermal fuse for the motor. These are usually not resetable its a one time fuse if it blows you have o buy another one.Hope this helps

My gallery dishwasher doesnt drain all the way


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't drain properly. It could be possible that your drain line or filter trap is clogged. I would recommend checking the drain hose to make sure it is not clogged or kinked. You can also look at the filter in the bottom of your tub to access that filter you would need to remove the rack and it is located right under the spray arm. You should be able to lift up and pull the trap out if it is dirty clean it and reinstall it. If everything appears to work properly it could be a possible issue with your drain pump and you may need to have it replaced. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.
