Will Not Drain - Whirlpool GU1500

Simply will not drain - had same problem just over 4 months ago and had it repaired by service tech who said it was a clog in the sink trap line. How do I clear the sink trap line myself?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dishwasher DU850DWGX1 won't completely drain

Commonly this is result of low water pressure or hose height/length

As long as the water is below the heating element and the dishes are getting clean its actually normal. Sometimes the pressure or hose length/height meets specs but will not always drain all water.

But as long as it is below the heating element this is normal

I am sure.

SOURCE: Whirlpool GU1500 dishwasher - no wash cycle buttons would turn on

I had the same issue. If you have a 1100,1200,1500 etc you have the first series of the dishwasher and there is a heat sensor issue. The dishwasher runs and checks if the water heats up by 8 degrees. If the water doesn't heat enough then the washer will trigger shut down (assuming that there is an issue somewhere in the water heating process could be a variety of things) Alas, it may only be a one time issue and yet the programming in the dishwasher defaults to a shut down where the normal consumer can't get the machine to run. DO THIS: remove the kick panel on the front of the washer. Behind that is a document with a series of buttons that you push to reset the machine's computer e.g. you might have to press 'saniwash' then airdry then Saniwash then airdry. The machine will start the reset process and may also go through a 'cancel' function. After that you should be back in business. They have fixed this issue on the new machines so that the 8 temp trigger has to fail three wash cycles in a row before the consumer lock out is activated. As for those who own the first series....we do lots of resets. P.S. I learned this AFTER I bought two new panels for my GU1500.
Good Luck

Washing machine will not drain water


Here are some basic troubleshooting steps you can follow to help you determine why your washing machine won't drain:

1. Check the drain hose in the back of the machine and make sure it isn't kinked or flattened.

2. If it spins but won't drain, there could be a piece of fabric stuck between the inner and outer tub, or even the drain hose or pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. It could also be a faulty timer.

3. Are clothes soaked at the end of the wash, even though it appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? Worn or loose belts could be the culprit.

4. When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? It could be a faulty or jammed impeller pump.

For more suggestions on troubleshooting and fixing this issue, check out Washing machine not draining. I hope this helps!

How to service a whirlpool washing machine


They don't need servicing. Clean the dispenser drawer and inside, door seal gasket, filter base and drain pump impellor and check drain hoses clear regularly. Apart from that a monthly boil wash with no powder or conditioner and no clothes in is a good idea. Anything else is going to be a repair job if something breaks

Have you removed the shipping bolts when you got it? It would be 4 big silver bolts in the back of it. Otherwise you are still under manufacturer's warranty so a service call will be free.

Won't pump out water for rinse cycle.this happened a couple months ago also, and a repair tech simply put a zip tie on a loose wire. I want to check that, but cannot get the control panel off so that I can...


there are four screws on the back panel that need to come off.then the controll top lifts and or slide forward a bit and it can be removed.
the first thing i would do is use a wet dry shop vac and try and remove the water from the washer.
this particular model washer should have a direct drive drain pump and it is not electrical.
if the washer just kinda humms when it goes into the drain cycle then there is something blocking the pump.there may also be a problem with your lid switch.

Seems you answered your own question here. You need to make an air gap in the drain hose - take as much slack as possible and make a curve (upside down U) under you sink as high as you can go. Make sure you clip ot to back of the cabinet to stabilize it. Good luck

Water Never Stops, Drum Never Fills, Cycle Doesn't Change


Micro, sounds like your drain hose is too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning. Pull the drain hose out and see if it fills ok. Catriver.
