Re: re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/...
The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.

Theres a drain pump located at the bottom of the unit if you follow the hose from the pump then to the drain if your unit isnt draining you might have to call for service from a technician to have them change your drain pump. If the water is just sitting inside the unit and when u start the unit it should fill with water again.Also if you have a cancel function by pressing this you will make the unit drain if you dont hear anything when u press the cancel button you definetly need a pump
possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.
Hello there: Troubleshooting Leaks If the dishwasher
leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the
pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty.
Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe
fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are
threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work,
chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or
otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting. Most
dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to
the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line
is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure
to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the
hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher,
tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the
clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves,
and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at
clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in
hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses. I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL BEST REGARDS MICHAEL
If the buzz stops when you open the door it could be the water solenoid valve which if it is not filling with water there is a 90% chance it is the valve. Turn off the water supply going the dishwasher under the sink or by the pipe. Pull the dishwasher out and unplug it if the hose length allows it to pull out.Put a towel or pan under the dishwasher hose connection disconnecting the hose on the dishwasher valve. Remove the racks and tip the unit forward with the unit unplugged and unbolt the valve where the water inlet is connected. Undo the hose clamp and wire connector. Check the valve or order a replacement and reinstall clamps and connectors. Be very careful when using the unit the first few times that no water leaks from hose connections by using a tissue touching the connections to see if water is present. Mold sucks so use a flash light looking in the front panel and tissue even after replacing the unit back in its final place.
Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.
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
Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is
typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out
properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the
house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air
gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently
installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the
dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer
