Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher keeps trying to drain

This is a brand new dishwasher. The first time we used it we forgot to take the end off of the wastepipe and consequently the machine could not drain. Once we took the end off the pipe, it drained but now it is just constantly trying to drain. We have read other problems on here (for other makes) which suggest there may be a tray under the machine which needs emptying but we are unable to find anything like this.

SOURCE: Leaking water on floor during drain cycle

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

SOURCE: bosch classixx slimline dishwasher not running through cycle

fault is that there is a leak. the tray at base of dishwasher is full of water which operates a float and turns on drain pump. tilt over 45deg and water will run out and then it will work or remove bottom front panel and mop out (better). then find leak

SOURCE: Pump won't stop draining

you will almost certainly have a build up of water in the base. remove the water and retry. check to see if limit switch is not sticking or has possibly gone faulty.failing this, your board is faulty.

SOURCE: NEFF S5456 DISHWASHER

We eventually, after several days of these problems, called a technician. It took him a couple of days to come round. Then when he did - he switched it on and absolutely no problem. His explanation was that if you interrupt the cycle whilst on a hot cycle, it sometimes thinks it's in flood mode. If you leave it off for a couple of days - it's OK.
Learning
1) Try not to interrupt hot cycle
2) If the pump continues to run - switch it off and wash dishes manually for 2 or 3 days.
Hope this helps others.

SOURCE: Water in drain pump for ASKO D5122XXL dishwasher

Yes, Asko dishwashers can leave a small amount of water in the sump after a cycle completes. At the beginning of most cycles the sump is pumped and new water added.

Press the Cancel/ Drain cycle for a few seconds. The dishwasher should reset itself. See if this makes any difference. Also first turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on.

Brand new beko DE 2542 PW dishwasher won't start wash cycle


Hello,
It sounds as if the d/washer is pressurising due to a blocked outlet drain hose.


Make sure that the drain for the dishwasher is actually clear take hose out of the drain outlet.On some of the Beko dishwashers they put a plug up inside the drain hose which has to be removed before use or if it is a new installation and it is draining into a "U" bend on a sink check that the little spigot that the hose is onto is actually open.They come from the plumbers merchants blanked if blanked then you have to cut the end off to suit size of hose.I hope this has helped.

Good Luck.

Unit will not drain. It will fill with water in normal manner. Circulating pump also works normally. Float switch seems to be sound. But the wash water is not expelled as it ought to be.


Something simple to check is the drain hose. I am an installer and have seen this many times and people will buy a new dishwasher after putting in a new garbage disposal. If you did, did you remove the knock out plug from the disposal? Next, remove the drain hose end from under the sink and try sucking the water out with a wet/dry vac. All the water from the dishwasher should easily be sucked out from any dishwasher except a GE brand. If not, your drain hose is clogged.

Dishwasher won't drain properly


there are several possible causes for your trouble. begin by disconnecting the drain hose at both ends and checking to be sure it is not partially blocked. Then check the pump to be sure there is no chunk of glass or other debris partially blocking it.

The last one to two inches of water does not drain out


It sounds like you have something in the small water pump at the base of the dishwasher that pumps the dirty water through the hose into your sink drain. Remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, unscrew the hose clamp and pull off the hose, then unscrew the pump so u can inspect it. Usually you will find a chunk of glass, or bone or other debris which is blocking the pump partially.

Brand new dishwasher will not drain at end of cycle.


Check your manual. Some dishwashers actually do leave water in them after the final drain cycle. It has to do with the type of seals they use. Some will leak the very first time they are used but not after that. The seals in these types must remain wet. If this isn''t the issue, wait about 5 minutes fir the timer to finish. Sometimes there is quite a lag at the last cycle. If all else fails, call the customer service number in the manual.

Drain


Don't buy this brand anymore, and be sure all your friends know not to also. I have a GE, GSD4000J, it is less than 2 years old, I have used it maybe at most 6 times. Now it will not drain, washes with the same water, does a terrible job of washing. I own a remodeling service, I will never buy GE products for any of my jobs from this day forward. Have not been able to get any help from GE, they don't seem to stand behind their products at all, or care about their customers once you have bought their products.
