I was having a similar problem and I reread my manual. They said to remove the cover on the air intake and take a toothpick and clear any obstructions that may be inside. I tried that, and the dish washing powder had built up around the air breathing space and evidentally had it airlocked. The intake on my dishwasher is located in the floor of the unit, left front, near the door. You might try that . Good luck!

Dish washer does not drain


Our dushwasher did the same recently and I found a toothpick had jammed the drain pump impeller. because it had seperate drain and wash pumps, the wash cycle would work but not the drain cycle.

I had to pull the dishwasher out to get at the drain pump. Fortunately my pump seperates into two parts so I could clean it without having to redo the drain plumbing.

Kenmore Model @16969990 Washing water doesn't pump out, cycle doesn't finish, attemptes to run other cycles default to "normal wash"


The drain cycle does not complete as the drain pump is not working the pump out the water. So unless the drain level comes down to reset the water level controller the program does not progress further.
So check the voltage during the drain cycle if voltage is present then the drain pump is faulty if not the main controller is faulty.
replace accordingly.

Draining after completion of cycle


Hello,
Miele dishwashers are typical not to drain all of the water. It is the way the siphoning system is designed. You will always have a bit of standing water after cycle completion but should not be above the bottom filter. You can manually drain the dishwasher by selecting any cycle and letting it run for 30 seconds and then turn the dishwasher off. Hope this helps

Thoroughly clean drain screen and drain. Add small amount of drain cleaner to drain, flush after five minutes. Do not add hot water with drain cleaner.

Water does not drain


Hi

You can :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit

Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.

Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.

Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )

Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

Check pump impeller for damage.

Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
Please contact for further clarifications.

Thanks

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle


Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.
