Dishwasher will not drain

Model # DU850SWPQ2 Whirlpool dishwasher

Type 280-0

Unit will not drain after a complete wash/rinse cycle complete. I was able to siphon water out of drain hose so I don't think blockage is the problem.

Has just started to happen in the last 3 weeks.

    The website did not prove useful, but the suggestion to check the "check valve" was helpful. I removed the machine and found the checkvalve on the bottom. I found a rubber gasket that was blown out of place and stopped the ball in the valve from moving. I simply replaced the gasket - where I thought it should be or looked like it should be - and it seems to work fine. Time will tell.

Hello Tom,
Glad that you were able to find something out of place in the check valve ( like the gasket) which in turn was restricting the ball in that check valve from being in the right position. I'd be willing to bet that your problem is solved..
Regards,
Rick

Hello Tom_Simmers,
Here is a link with exploded views and parts lists for your dishwasher for reference however based on your description, have you made sure you don't a blockage in the check valve? That's part of the pump drain assembly. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

You may also have a problem with the pump itself so the documentation on the website will help you evaluate that.
In many instances, its just a blockage of food byproducts inline with the drain system so chances are thats what you will find.. Good Luck on that.
Regards,
Rick

Whirlpool dishwasher, quiet partner 1. Does not drain, does not finish wash cycle.


ensure your dishwasher pump and drain hose are unobstructed. If your machine does not drain it will not refill with fresh rinse water and since it can't do that the cycle will never finish.

Many people don't completely rinse off food stuffs from their dishware, expecting the dishwasher to take care of it. To be honest, a dishwasher is more of a fine cleaning and disinfecting device than a pot scrubber. Because of this, grease, food debris, etc can clog the pump or drain line over time. be sure to use a good de-greasing agent regularly once the flow of water has been cleared (don't wash your dishes with it however)

Whirlpool dishwasher does not drain. Wash arm operates correctly


Check the drain hose under your sink make sure its not crushed or kinked if you have a garbage disposal the hose should go up into it at a 90 degree angle if not 180 degrees into your sink drain line

Washer works up to rinse cycle, water is running but tub does not fill?


Your siphoning. Pull up the drain hose. If you have it down the drain too far it will create a siphon. This happens cause those pumps are gravity feed so it's just like getting gas out of a car. After the wash cycle
is complete the hose doesn't have time to break the siphon before rinse water comes in...Hope this solves your problem, good luck.

Draining during wash cycle, so wash cycle does not complete


Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com. I suspect you may have a siphon problem. This dishwasher must have some type of an air break or a high loop in the drain path. Try lifting the drain hose up above where it drains into the sink or wherever it drains to. Tie it there with a zip tie or wire. Just make sure it is higher than the drain hookup area.

Dishwasher runs for appx 14 min & stops washing half way thru wash cycle. Timer contunies to run. No drain pump out (nothing). Let dishwasher set idle for appx 1 hour and it will re-set. Set timer...


This sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump. You can remove the inner cover to look for obstructions. You have a dual purpose motor it does the both circulating and draining. The blockage is causing it to overheat and trip the thermal protector. You can remove the drain assembly from underneath if you don't find anything from above. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that walks you thru most of this. It is a different model but pretty close.If you find no obstructions the motor may be failing.

Getting a code F then H


Hi, "FH" is a No Water Detect error.It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. Check whether the water taps are turned on sufficiently, the inlet hoses are not kinked, the water inlet valve is not clogged, you don't have a siphoning issue, and/or the drain pump is working.

My whirlpool gold dishwasher runs wash and rinse cycles, but there is no water in the bottom of the washer.


the drain hose had slipped off its clamp at the back and there was no air gap to prevent siphoning. Replaced clamp, and hopefully this works.
