Maytag portable dishwasher is not draining

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher that is almost 2 years old (MDC4650AWW). My problem is that is doesn't drain completely. (It is level) When it tries to drain, it trickles out of the hose. In fact, most times I run it, there is about 1-2 inches of water on the bottom of the dishwasher left over so i don't feel the dishes are actually being rinsed clean. When I pull the hose in and out while it's draining, it tends to come out better. It's as if something is stuck in the hose. has anyone else had this problem and fixed it?

I have had the same problem and shaking the hose was a temporary fix. I decided to take apart the dishwasher to see if there was some kind of a clog. What I found, after taking off the top and back is that the drain hose gets kinked by the fill hose. They both run up the side of the machine and back down and are held in place by a cable tie. Over time the drain hose must have gotten soft and with the fill hose on top of it, it kinks over the cable tie. Therefore I cut the cable tie, put the drain hose on top of the fill hose and put on a new cable tie and this seems to have solved the problem because the water now drains as fast as did when new.

Try to clean the filter by taking off the bottom section of the water jet, it might be clogged, if that does not work, u got the same problem as me, it just wont drain. The pump is probably broken.

Water does not drain out


Hello. I have had this happen to ours fullsize Maytag 2 or 3 times over the past few years, but maybe this could help. In all my cases it was one of two things:

1. The drain is clogged. Food, broken glass, etc. can clog the drain. You'll see the grated cover or similar inside on bottom of washer. There's usually only a screw or 2 you need to remove to take of grate and get to insides. Remove all debris you find.

2. If it goes into the drain cycle but you hear nothing, or almost nothing, likely the drain pump has gone out. Only had to replace one of these. This means $ and a repair dude/dudette will try to charge you a fortune but its a super easy install. The hardest part is you have to slide the washed enough out of the counter enclosure so you can lean it over enough so you can get to the water pump underneath (however looks like yours is a portable so may be easy to get at)You can find a replacement drain pump online (including on ebay) for like $25 bucks. Just disconnect the hoses and power wire, replace the old one (again just a few screws), reconnect everything and you are done.

There's lots of vids on YouTube showing both how to clean drain and how to replace a drain pump. Hopefully for your specific model even. Try these things and hopefully you will be back in business.

Cursory Google search turned up part link below, there's also a service manual online (2nd link). Good luck!

Water doesn't drain


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My GE Profile doesn"t drain completly, leaving about 2" of water.


Sounds like a water level sensor is on the fritz. The drain valve is probably opening if the level drops at all.
