There is a screen mesh at the center middle of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned occasionally. You will find it under the heater coil towards the center of the base. This should fix it. Clean this every 6 months or so. Hope this helps.

My Blomberg dishwasher wont stop drain cycle


A common cause of this condition results from water in the base pan. This may result from a leak in the dishwasher or the drain hose (to the sink drain) backing up. First check the base pan (the very bottom assembly that all other components are mounted within) for any moisture - this can be difficult as there are only narrow openings between the tank and the base pan; a mirror can help or you might have to pull the unit out from the cabinet to access the sides. If there is moisture in the pan this problem must be corrected as the unit is just trying to protect against water damage from a leak. If the base pan assembly is dry, look at the float assembly (behind the water fill valve) as insects or rodents can sometimes interfere with the proper operation of this sensor. That causes the control to think there is a water leak. When this fault occurs everything is turned off and the drain pump runs continuously to eliminate any water from inside the dishwasher.

Whirpool built-in puddle of water in bottom, food on drain


see this causes and proceed according. God bless you
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.

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.

remove the drain hose and make sure its not plugged with food debris then hit the drain/cancel button and put the drain hose end in a bucket and see how much water comes out of the end of the hose if any,if the 2 green lights are flashing this too is a clue to this problem,also make sure you can hear the drain pump running when you start it as explained in the above statement

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

Dishwasher Problems - Waterwill not drain out

We're trying to install our dishwasher and there is a 3rd hose attached on the side. It appears to be a drain of some kind, part number, we think, printed on it is FRU 10967 19/07/04 08:33 Can you tell...


I just installed my Bosch dishwasher a few days ago and wondered about the same thing. The instructions for hooking up water supply and drain lines did not mention this third hose at all.
However, 'the third hose' (which appears open on the lower end, but loops up high) is attached at the other end at a point directly on the other side of the dryer wall from an opening inside the dishwasher, described elsewhere as a vent (somewhere in the manual we are advised not to place anything such that the vent could be blocked). I'm assuming that when water is pumped to the drain, since the chamber is otherwise sealed, there has to be an opening for it to breathe in air to replace the evacuated water, and conversely to allow air to leave when new water is taken in; thus both vacuum and pressure build-up are avoided.
So, although this third hose is not involved in installation, a little foresight by the manual writers would have had them mention it and put our minds at ease. Maybe we are not supposed to be curious....
