If you cannot get the diswasher to drain there is some obstruction in the drain line going to the disposal. First turn the power off to the diswasher at the breaker panel then open doors under sink and follow drain line to the disposal there you will find a hose clamp(silver) that you must loosten with a flat blade screw driver ( get a bucket under the disposal) pull the drain line loose and dump out excess water and debris inspect area going into the disosal to make shure it is not clogged up

reverse your proceedure and reconnect the drain

Before trying the dishwasher take some ice cubes and run thewater then put in disposal and turn on that should clean the disposal

try your dishwasher I forgot to mention that theri is a strainer at the bottom of you dishwasher that you can remove to be sure it is not clogged up I assume that you have aready checked that

good luck

    an after thought if you installed a new disposal too you need to make sure that the dishwasher drain knokout was taken out before you hooked up the drain hose

Water from garbage disposal backing up


Check to see if there is a loop in the drain line. The drain line coming out of the disposal has to have a loop in it that is higher than the disposal. That way water can't drain back into the dishwasher.

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

Water is built up on bottom of wash basin at end of cycle - water does not drain - drain is clear of food/materials ?


Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, if it did not work then your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner III is collecting dirty water after the garbage disposal has run. Is this problem the dishwasher or garbage disposal?


The drain hose under the sink needs to be tied up,above the point where it enters the drain pipe or disposal,water is feeding back into the unit,run the disposal more often also this helps prevent this from happening.

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.
