Water wont drain


You use your dishwasher so often with no problems that any issue can seem like a major disaster. But you can fix a drainage problem with a trip to the hardware or plumbing supply store and a few minutes of effort. If your dishwasher doesn't drain properly, the drain hose is probably kinked or damaged, interfering with the flow of water out of the dishwasher. You can fix the problem by replacing the drain hose yourself.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions And 4 Tools (Material) Needed To Solve The Drain Problem.

  • Shallow dish,Pliers or screwdriver,Replacement drain hose,Replacement hose clamps
  1. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. Turn off the dishwasher's power supply by unplugging it (under the sink) or turning off the appropriate circuit breaker.
  2. Pull the dishwasher all the way out from the cabinet so you can access the drain hose and pump near the back.
  3. Locate the drain pump and hose. The drain hose is the larger of the two hoses attached to the dishwasher and is generally located close to the bottom back of the dishwasher.
  4. Place a shallow dish under the drain pump. Loosen the clamp on the drain hose close to the drain pump, using pliers or a screwdriver. Pull the drain hose off of the pump, allowing any water to drip into the dish below.
  5. Remove the other end of the drain hose from the garbage disposal or drain by loosening the hose clamp and pulling the hose off of the connection.
  6. Attach the replacement hose to the drain pump and the drain or garbage disposal. Attach new hose clamps, and tighten them to hold them in place.
  7. Turn the power and water back on, and run the dishwasher through a cycle to make sure that the dishwasher drains properly and the hose doesn't leak. Tighten the hose clamps if you find any leaks.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.


possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.

I would remove the bottom panel of the dishwasher and remove the drain hose from the pump. On some of the Kenmore Dishwashers you can remove the drain spout where the drain hose attaches to and clean. Sometimes something will catch inside the drain spout.
I hope this helps.

Variable draining...sometimes there is water at bottom, sometimes dry..doesn't seem related to type of wash cycle.


There is a drain hose for your dishwasher that often gets clogged. Remove the drain hose and clean it out. reinstall the hose and your dishwasher will drain. The dishwasher should have a panel to remove and then comes out easily, just be careful not to pull it out too far. If this does not fixya then you may need to throw some parts at it, but hopefully not. Good luck

HI, this seems to be an obstructed hose(drain). i recommend inspecting the hoses before replacing the pump.

To access the drain hose remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.

When checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.

Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through (such as spraying a garden hose through it at full pressure). Disconnect the recirculation hose and check it in the same way.

Reconnect the hoses and replace the clamps. Replace the lower panel and restore electricity to the dishwasher. If there are no obstructions found or debris, this will confirm a damaged pump and, it should be replaced.


NOTE(((Your model is equipped with a Drain valve(solenoid) i recommend testing this as well before swamping out the pump)))

The drain valve is typically near the motor although it can be located elsewhere. Look for a water hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose should lead to the drain valve. The valve consists of the the gate arm mechanism and a solenoid (also called a coil). The gate arm allows the water to flow out of the dishwasher's tub through the drain valve. You should be able to move the gate arm up and down easily and smoothly. The gate arm also has two springs attached to it. If either of the springs is missing or damaged, they should be replaced.

The gate arm mechanism is engaged by the drain valve solenoid. The solenoid is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the solenoid before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connector off of the solenoid's terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Test the solenoid for resistance using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to roughly 40 ohms when the probes touch the terminals. If the reading is infinity or substantially different from 40 ohms, the solenoid should be replaced asap.

A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged. If you still have drainage problems after doing this, check your drain hose to make sure there are no kinks or bends. if the hose looks worn out you can replace the hose pretty inexpensivley. if your have thoughly checked from dishwasher to trap under the sink where your dishwasher should drain to and it seems clear you may have to call in the repair man.

Did you have a dishwasher before? If so, you must have had a sink tail piece with a dishwasher drain coming off the side. For the connection, you may have to get an adapter to fit the end of the dishwasher drain hose to the sink tail piece. Take all pieces to hardware store if necessary to get an adapter which fits. After you connect the drain hose, make sure that the drain hose has a "high loop", meaning that the hose curls up at least 6 inches above the connection point before it goes down again. This is important to keep sink waste from getting back into the diswasher hose if the sink drain backs up.

Dishwasher will not drain


I hav an Americana / GE dishwasher, only one and a half years old. the dishwasher is not draining. When I turn the selection knob on the front to wash, is begins filling with water again. But, the cycle is not actually working. I removed the drain hose from the disposal unit and allowed the really really nasty collection of water to drain out. I have a feeling that the hose connection to the washer is clogged. Is this possible. If so, should I remove the hose from the connection at the dishwasher and clean the hose or could it be something else.

Thank you,
