Question about Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD141 (Ultra-Premium) Built-in Dishwasher
New Viking..just installed was working then it was mounted to cabinet...now it will not drain..ceases about 5 minutes into cycle and pot light blinks How to check if plug is removed? My dishwasher drain leaves water after a cycle. My dishes are dirtier than when I put them in!
Try clearing the air gap (which is the seemingly pointless thing that is near your kitchen faucet.)
1.Take off the shiny metal cover, and you can sometimes twist off the plastic cap, or you may need to use needle nose pliers to push in the tabs that hold it in. You may or may not see debris in the tube that is in the air-gap.
2. Now what you need to do is take a clear glass and put it over the air-gap with part of the glass hanging over the edge of the sink, you may want to put a towel around the other side of the glass to keep the water from going all over the counter, turn the dishwasher off then on again and select "rinse and hold". If there is any thing in the line it will come out.
3.If not you may need to take out the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher and on the left hand side in the sump area there is a small, (usually yellow) cap that covers the drain motor impeller that can usually be pulled towards the center/right by hand, if not with needle nose pliers. You will need to vacuum out the water with a wet/dry vacuum or towels.
If none of this works, let me know and I will go over some more uncommon draining problems.
