Re: pumping out continuously part 3

It sounds like its in flood mode. the dishwasher will pump out all the time. Remember a dishwasher will always pump out at the start to find its water level, second step is incoming water. If its not doing the first two step you will have to pin point the problem??? Check to see that no water is lying on the base of the dishwasher???

Canot get the diswasher to drain. Tried CLR-no

Hi, please check to make sure which style d/w you have as outlined above. The direct drive dishwashers have a drain solenoid attached to the motor and pump or a separate drain valve that must be checked with a ohm or volt meter. The drain solenoid and valve energize and opens the drain port to allow the water to pump out. For a "no drain" problem, always start with the common stuff first...a kinked or clogged drain hose. The drain hose must be checked and cleaned out and if you have to, remove the drain hose(s) to fully check and clean them. Don't forget the drain system sometimes consists of a self cleaning body that also can get clogged and stop the dishwasher from draining. If your drain hose needed to be lengthened a hose connector was probably used, these hose connectors are slightly smaller than the drain hose and food bits often get clogged there, also the tail pipe piece that connects the drain hose from your d/w to the house drain is also another popular place to get a clog. On the forward/reversing style of dishwashers that won't drain, make sure the motor is reversing to drain the water out. If the motor does not reverse to drain, the motor, wires ( especially where the doors bends to open and close ) and timer will have to be checked. If the motor is reversing and running, the pump impellor inside the motor and pump assembly may be damaged and is incapable of pushing the water out to drain. If the drain solenoid or drain valve checks ok on the direct drive motor and pump, the impellor inside may also be damaged as mentioned above.
Always check the drain spout under the sink for a d/w that will not drain, also if the Air gas is leaking this is a clogged air gap or drain and normally not a d/w problem.

My dishwasher - DU930 - is clogged - water won't drain - still will run as if trying to drain - so seems like it is clogged - how do I unclog? thanks

Check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages and also clean the air gap.

Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug.

If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) and hopefully anything else from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Hope helped with this.

Water Won't drain fro the dishwasher model Blanco bfdw650s

If you "Lower" the hose to the bucket and it "drains" you are just using gravity to remove the water. The pump may be helping a little but if you raise the hose up and the water stops coming out, it's a good indication that the pump is bad. Unless the place you are attaching the hose to is plugged up, you need a new pump or a new impellor. Since the motor is good, try to get a replacement impellor, that the thing that moves the water. One other thing, you did say how well it washes the dishes? If the impellor is bad, it probably doesn't.

Asko D1706.The washing arms have stopped turning.

Can you hear the motor running? If the motor is runningand machine is full of water, but not pumping water around, you have one of the following problems:
-a blockage in the filters or sump preventing enough water getting to motor impellor,
-blocked jets in spray arms themselves,
-or I have had cases where the impellor has broken off the motor, hence motor runs but doesn't pump any water around. Check for blockages first, wouldn't suggest you take motor out and disassemble unless qualified or confident to do so (it's not an easy job if you haven' done it before!!)

Dishwasher makes a high pitch whine when it runs

instead of motor check out the motor impeller that can make the high pitched noise if rusted or cracked. ------------- Motor and pump assembly screw and impellor help....
One of the most common question that I get on a dishwasher repair is "how does that motor and pump impellor screw come out?"
Inside many dishwasher pump assemblies is a screw that goes through the upper impellor and screws directly into the motor shaft. Since the motor shaft and screw are made of guessed it...they can / will rust. The screw can rust and become very tight and difficult to remove!! These screws are normally a right ( regular ) hand thread, socket or nut driver can be used to remove the screw. One hard thing to do is to hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, they often just turn together. The impellor may be jammed with a screwdriver to hold it still so the screw can be removed...sometimes the impellor can be help still by placing a rag on it and hold tight with your hand, the rag will help prevent a sharp edge on the impellor from cutting your fingers. The odd time that screw is too rusted into place, soaking a little rust buster or 3in1 oil on it over night may help loosen it. Sometimes trying to tighten the screw a little at first will help break it free. There are some tool ( see below ) that can be purchased to help hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, these are only for a few models and pump assembly styles.
WLP seal tool helps center and install the pump seal
Frigidaire seal - impellor remover and install tool
Once the screw is removed, the next obstacle is the impellor can also get stuck onto the motor shaft. Many times I have to break off the old impellor. A sharp blow straight down with a hammer and flat screwdriver will often crack the plastic impellor...careful not to damage the pump body! If the motor shaft has indeed rusted, clean it up really good with sand cloth.

Water not draining

Usual causes are: 1. Something in the drain path blocked. Symptoms: You can hear the drain pump running at the appropriate bits of the cycle, but if you you open the door the instant the pump stops, there is still a pool of dirty water in the bottom. Solution: Follow the path from strainer through drain pump to drain hose, find and eliminate the blockage. Most likely points are the strainer and the inlet to the pump. Hint: You can identify the drain pump by following the drain hose and seeing what it's attached to. 2. Drain pump broken. Symptoms: Usually, you won't hear the pump running at all at the appropriate times; if it does run, it won't sound right. Solution: Take it off and open it up, see if something is blocking the impellor (in which case, fish it out). Spin the impellor with your fingertips; If it won't turn at all, you need to find out why it has siezed (may be fixable) can you feel it turning the motor (a very magnetic, "flippy" sensation). If you can't, the impellor has probably become unstuck from the shaft. You may be able to glue it on, but this fix is unlikely to last very long. Use a multimeter to measure the resistance of the motor windings. If madly different from a few hundred ohms, again a new motor might be necessary. Hint: The pump motor and impellor can usually be bought separately from the pump housing as a much cheaper unbranded part. 3. Back-siphoning from the waste plumbing. Symptoms: You can hear the drain pump running normally at the appropriate times, and if you open the door the instant the pump stops, the machine appears to be empty, but then quietly fills up with dirty water. Solution: There is meant to be an air break (or in some installations and anti-siphon valve)where the machine's drain hose enters the domestic drainage drainage system. Unblock/unjam this. Hint: After fixing this, run the machine empty on the hottest, longest cycle it has; some of that dirty water may not originally have come from the dishwasher. A.
