Won't drain motor seems ok, no apparent blockage

  • grandslam09 Dec 02, 2008

    My washer stops at certain times and seems to just freeze. If I mess with the controls at the top it will start again sometimes but usually always have to run the Dranin & Spin cycle after every load to get excess water from clothes.

Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

How do you replace the lid switch on a Kenmore 70 series washing machine


Hi.

Check for drain blockage at the filter. Check setting of drain hose at the back. If there is no drain problem check pressure switch, central control unit and pump motor.

Dishwasher will not fill up.


Set the controls to off then power off at the mains for 30 mins and then power mains back on and run a drain program or a full wash program. If the water won’t drain away then the most likely problems are the door interlock switch is faulty, the drain water motor is faulty, there is a blockage in the drain outlet pipe or filter – this will need unblocking, there is a blockage in the water pump – this will need to be unblocked, the controller board is faulty – but this generally shows an error code. First turn off the mains power to the dishwasher then check the internal filter and screen and clean it thoroughly. Then check the waste water hose and any outlet valve and make sure that it is unblocked and free of any obstruction or waste material. If you have access to the water pump you can check that it is free of obstruction and is able to turn and that none of the impeller vanes have been damaged. Then if all this is OK then try turning on the mains power and running a hot wash cleaning cycle to flush out any remaining sludge / debris.

If the outlet pipe is clear and the pump motor is turning and there is no pump damage then there has to be a blockage somewhere. You could lay the out pipe flat on the ground with the end draining into a tray to see if any water actually does come out. If it does then you do not have a total blockage. This is because it will be most likely draining out of the machine due to gravity and shows that there may be a partial blockage of the pump is defective even though the motor may be running. You will need to remove the pipes to and from the pump to check for blockages and also remove the pump to inspect for damage to the impeller or a blockage in the pump housing where the hoses connect. If the pump housing is clear and the impeller can be turned freely with your fingers then the direct coupled or belt driven linkage between the motor and the pump is the most likely broken and will need repair or replacement. If the impeller cannot be turned easily and does not turn with the motor running then the impeller or the direct linkage is either seized or broken and will need replacing. If your pump and impeller is belt driven then check that the belt is not slipping – this will normally result in increased noise and a possible smell of burning rubber
