If the drain lines are clear, test the drain pump, and see that drain pump is not clogged by removing it and cleaning.

If the drain pump is fine, then it is probably a defective control timer.

Hi,my machine skips putting in water and goes to drain cycle immediately. So no water goes into the machine


does the water get to a certain level but keeps filling while draining down your stand pipe. if so the end of your drain hose os pushed to far down the stand pipe and is syphoning out. a bit common. pull the end o the hose up closer to the opening.

Won't drain right


Check the pump. There is most likely something obstructing it. It is probably a coin or something like that. There should be 2 hoses that attach to pump. One that the water comes into and one that the waterwill discharge. It will be one the the water discharges from. Make sure that you get a pan or bowl so when you disconnect the hose the water will go in this instead of on the floor.

Water to dishwasher not hot enough


The 737 model could run on even lower temperature (80F). Given time, the unit will heat up the water. the trick is to give it time.

That model is made for commercial use, not really for residential. It will not fully drain every cycles. The important thing to keep in mind is to empty the dishwasher (turn it off, pull the stand-pipe out, and drain) every night and left empty. When you want to use the unit, put the plug back in and turn it on, wait 20 to 30 minutes and it should be ready.
