Dishwasher Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

Why does my washing machine (located in the laundry room) back up into my kitchen sink


I it hard to believe that a sink full of water will drain "freely" if the washing machine machine water will not. My suspect is that a minor blockage exists in the main sewer drain line-AFTER the point of connection of the washer. A cleanout point probably exists near that point of connection. Please use it to clear the line.

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.


if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

WHEN RUNNING A CYCLE ON TOP DRAW THE BOTTOM DRAW WILL FILL UP WITH WATER NOT DRAIN


The drain hose going to the kitchen sink is blocked. If you have an insinkerator in your kitchen sink then run it first. Otherwise take the dishwasher hose out from the sink outlet and run straight into sink to see if any difference.

After washing dishes in the kitchen sink, water fills up and stands in the dishwasher and drains only after running the dishwasher


Hi, There is a drain hose under the sink that goes to the dishwasher. Make sure that hose is raised up higher then the drain pipe for you sink. It is just draining into the dishwasher because the drain hose is to low.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dishwasher water keeps backing up into kitchen sink then taking a long time to drain from sink


Yes, your sink drain needs cleaning -- it's clogged. Pour some bleach into the sink drains and let it sit for a couple of hours. Flush out with boiling hot water.

If this improves the situation but not completely solving the drain problem, try it again.

If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the P-traps on the sink drains under the sink and clean them out.

If that doesn't work, let me know -- we'll try something else.

Dishwasher drains at the top of the sink? Is this


you mean its draining into the kitchen sink waste pipe. if so this is perfectly correct.

Water gets into disher when not inuse


dishwasher drain enters sewer system tapped into waste pipe below kitchen sink
water flowing from kitchen sink passes the opening of the dishwasher pipe
If the dishwasher hose does not loop up higher than the kitchen sink before going down to the bottom of the dishwasher water may flow downhill through the dishwasher drain into the dishwasher
ensure the dishwasher drain hose is screwed to the underside of the kitchen counter, to provide a stop to water flow.
The installation instructions suggest this
but often the dishwasher is at the end of its 'stretch'
and the installer assumes looping is just to use up excess hose, and doesnt.
an extension drain hose is available at most appliance stores

You have a restricted drain in your sink, not the dishwasher. Water is unable to go down drain fast enough and is backing up.
