Danby DDW399W dishwasher - drainage and spin arm problems

I have a Danby DDW399W countertop dishwasher that until a few weeks ago was working perfectly. It now only partially drains and and spray arm doesn't spin at all. Originally after reading some stuff on this site I have cleaned it with dishwasher cleaner twice and also with vinegar, now atleast the water comes out of the spray arm, but sadly it doesn't spin at all. It only partially drains. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I miss my dishwasher as I hate dishes. Also, at some point when it stopped washing the dishes it started to make a strange noise that has decreased with the cleanings but hasn't gone away. I also had switched to an environmentally friendly dishwasher cleaner that kept coating the dishwasher with goo which I suspect could be the culprit.

Water is full and won't shut off dnby ddw399w countertop dishwasher


Hi, There is a water level switch in the d/w. located in front corner. You can move it up and down while listening for a clicking noise. Sometimes soap will gum them up so they don't move. when it is overflowing, will the water shut off if you turn the machine off or do you need to turn the water off at the faucet?
Please let me know so that I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Water does not drain from the bottom. I understand that a small amount is normal, however, this is not a small amount. Thanks for your help.


It worked for me .I have a danby countertop dishwasher.
I took off the metal top
I looked under on the left side to find the pump
I took both hoses off the pump and took off the little fan.
i took off the little metal bracket behing the little fan. and unscrewed the little pump to take it out.
the little metal piece that the fan was on wouldn't even move.So i sprayed it down with wd and it started moveing again then a screw fell out.so i found where it went(inside the motor which the fan and metal piece move) got the tweezers and replced it. oiled it some more and put it all back together. Perfect.

Inside on the back of the tub, there should be a grate with screws that come out. Check for obstructions around the pump area. There may be food debris settling in the sump pump area
