I have a Frigidaire dishwasher model number FGBD2431KF purchased around 2009. Water is not pumping out.


Sc. Check the drain valve, remove the pump and test it. If it is not the pump then probably a relay or switch. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Does anyone have installation instructions fo a Bosch free standing dishwasher smu50E65au? Thanks. Julie


Hi Julie.
A dishwasher needs access to water numerous times during it's cycle. You'll have to have the hose on the tap with water pressure on while the machine is in operation. You could exchange your tap for one with thread or install a second one behind the current one.
(Slightly agricultural repair)
When installing a dishwasher the drain hose outlet MUST be above the water level in the machine or the water will run out as soon as it is put in...They usually connect to the S bend under the sink.
It would probably be best to have a handyman/plumber attend to the job.
Good luck

Our Hotpoint Aquarius dishwasher initially had the Eco & Prewash lights flashing & standing water inside. We then turned it on in the hope that the standing water would drain, which it did. It then...


Is it a dishwasher a washing machine or a drier? Washing machines don't have rotating arms and you said "I've managed to get the drier to drain"

I will assume it is a dishwasher in which case it sounds like your pump has failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

The wash keeps running water, never fills up


Your drain hose is to far down in the stand pipe or your stand pipe is to low, your stand pipe should be roughly the same height as the top of your washer if it is pull your hose out of the drain pipe it has probably just went down to far, it only need to be about 8 inches in the pipe, it is siphoning the water out, that is what your problem is.

My Maytag Performa Dishwasher is leaking when doing the dishes...


Sounds like your fill valve is stuck in the filling position...see if you you have water standing in it a couple hrs after a drain cycle. if it does then the valve needs to be replaced or you can take it apart carefully,(there is a sping that might fly out and get lost) and clean it. Mine had some small trash in it from the city water line.. The left side has an over flow hole is where your water is coming from..

No water


check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Draining water on kitchen floor


I am not familiar with your model dishwasher, but had a similar problem a few years back. I am assuming you have checked the obvious causes, such as a worn, or damaged gasket around the door. My problem was fixed by replacing the lower spray arm. The spray arm is a couple inches wide, about 18 inches long, has holes in it and rotates as it dispenses water - some lift up during the wsk and rinse cycles. In my case some of the holes got plugged up with gunk, which resulted in the water shooting out harder and further from the other holes. Those streams of water went places they were not designed to go and ended up on my kitchen floor. So check that part out and see if it is the cause of your problem. Good luck!
