Re: doesn't drain

You have a bad drain pump or something clogged in it. Will have to pull dishwasher out to fix.

Noisy Hoover hed6612 dishwasher

Con you check to see if the insulation over the top and sides of the dishwasher was touching the floor and wicked up enough water to get wet? That would reduce the sound dampening characteristics. It is also possible that the hose being shaken off was caused by an issued with something jamming the pump; check the drain grates to see if there is anything you can pull out.

It seems like the dishwasher didn't drain and water pours out onto the floor.

might be helpful if you provide the make and model number of the dishwasher.

It is possible either the drain hose has bursted or the kitchen drain is blocked causing the drain water to backflow. Do you hear the drain pump operate?

When i pull the main plug underneath the water over flows through the bottom screen of my sw400l onto the floor. I have checked the screen and it is clear, would it be the plumbing underneath?

yes I would say it is the plumbing underneath the drain pan. Probably the u shaped bend in the plumbing is full of straws or bottle caps, and/or glass. Double check the hole under the drain pan screen to make sure it is clear of debris.

Dishwasher won't drain. Floods out onto the floor. How do I clear the drain, I have already cleaned out the filter


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.

First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & 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) to **** any water (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.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I think your problem is in the garbage disposal unit. There is a knock-out seal in the outlet on the disposal unit where the dishwasher drain tube attaches. If you don't remove the knock-out then there is nowhere for the dishwasher water to go, and it will spill out onto the floor.

Dishwasher not draining - spilling over floor

Disconnect the hose from the disposer and see if the dishwasher will drain into a bucket. If it does, there's still a blockage in the disposer nipple. If no water still comes out of the hose, you need to pull out the dishwasher to see if the hose disconnected from the dishwasher's drain itself.

QuietPower 3, water seeps into unit,fills the base once per week.

I need more info but I would check the drain connection under the sink to make sure that it goes up after leaving drain , to keep the sink from draining into the dishwasher.

Are you saying it overfilled and flooded out, or did it empty onto the floor?
