SOURCE: kitchenaid dishwasher - water standing at end of cycle

How much water are we talking about? If its say less than 2-3 cups, It may be the way it is plumbed to drain. The drain line is back washing a little after everything is finished.

SOURCE: dishwasher pump will drain but not force water into spray arms

If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

What are you draining into - an air gap to a disposal, air gap to drain, directly to disposal, or directly to drain? How long has this been happening, and have you done any plumbing work recently (new disposal?)

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher will not turn on or drain

Float valve is jammed.

Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath.

The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.

Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base. If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve. First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

Hope this helped you. Please take the time to rate this tip.

Dishwasher was not draining. I cleaned out everything and now it wont start


I have the same problem with another Kitchenaid model. I've had better results at keeping the water drained by running two back to back water saver cycles than running a full pots and pans cycle.

Hi,
The solenoid valve underneath is an electrically controlled valve that opens the let water in and then is supposed to close again when the dishwasher is full enough with water. There are screens in the entrance of the valve that should catch any dirt that is large enough to keep the valve from closing, but sometimes dirt will get through that gets under the seat of the valve and prevents it from closing and shutting off the water. When this happens the water will keep right on running in...till you manually turn it off with the valve under the sink.

Find the part, it is usually under your dishwasher on the right hand front corner. You will see the water connection going to it.

The find your model number for your dishwasher and go online to find the part. It is fairly easy to install, but it is in a bad spot and you will find yourself lying on the floor busting your knuckles to get it replaced....if you are not up for that, then hire a pro to come and do it for you. For some reason getting paid to bust your knuckles makes it a bit more worth it...:-)

Our dishwasher, a kitchenaid kuds230 model isn't clearing the water in the bottom. We had a new disposal installed yesterday and the problem with the dishwasher started afterwards.


The dishwasher's old water is pumped into the same drain that your kitchen sink operates off of. i would recommend that you check the hose that runs out of the dishwasher to the pipes under the sink to make sure that the line is, a) hooked up, b) that it is not crimped and causing the water not to flow.

you may have a vacume issue

along side of the dishwasher itself there is a loop of drain hose to create a trap - inspect. also inspect where it is hooked up & follow where the drain hose goes to it's final connection to be sure there are no up hill runs or other blockages.

Speaking of blockages,. did you inspect the dishwasher drain very well to be sure it is fully clear and somethign is not stuck in under the water?

If need be pull the machine out from under the counter and check the side hose and unhook the drain where it goes into your house plumbing...

Residue is left behind after cycle is complete. Dishes looks dirt


if dirt is not being washed away it is most likely you have a clogged screen before the waste tube. Depending on the model. Dismantling the dishwasher takes place inside it and under it where the motor is located.

I have a mould problem in 5-yr-old basic model Bosch.


A service person solved our problem. We must run the kitchen tap until the water is very hot before starting the cycle. Also, he discovered the water distributor was diconnected:hence little water pressure, especially for the upper tray. I tend to rinse dishes before loading and was told not to do this. I hope this is the solution.
