De longi dishwasher wont drain


I think you need to remove the drain pump and get the waste collected flushed out. Please check this link for tips to remove the pump and clean. Make sure you take care to switch off the power while working.Finally check for the level of the machine to be slightly inclined towards the drain outlet.
Click on drain

Water collecting at the bottom of dishwasher, used it for the first time and there is a big pool of water at the bottom of the dishwasher when i open up the drawer


Your drain might be plugged. Check the bottom drain. If the water has no where to go, it will fill the bottom up. There might be a cap since it is new. It has to have a place to drain.

Have a rental property with F&P two draw dishwasher aprox five years old. Apparently bottom draw is holding water - what do you think?


Could be many reasons for the bottom drawer to hold water.

It could be leaky top drawer causing water to collect in the bottom drawer. Check if water collects when top drawer is running.

It could be blockage in the bottom drawer drainage which can be fixed by cleaning the filter plate and the drain sump. If the drain pump is not running during drain cycle then you will have to replace the drain pump motor.

Not draining at all. water collected at bottom of unit. tried "cancel/drain" numerous times and water remains at bottom of unit.


Possible blocked waste pipes or cycle pipes. but some specialist de-greaser and let it soak in dishwasher over nite - put dishwasher on in morning, repeat until its flushed.

Water collected in bottom of dishwasher


This could be due to several reasons. The most logical is that the pump filter is getting clogged.

follow the instructions in the owner's manual to clean up the filter. Also the impeller arm will need cleaning if the dishes are not clean.

If the above does not fix it then more likely the drain outlet under the sink is getting clogged. Try and clean the drains.

Water inlet


It sounds like there is either a kink in your drain hose or your garbage disposal is blocked up where the dishwasher drain is connected

Dishwasher stopped draining after cycle


Some water always remains in the bottom of the DW (al least with most DW) but here is some help....

GE dishwashers will have a sump entrance screen ( #4 ) that should be removed and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which is behind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separate drain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the most common GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drain solenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stop the draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain port will not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. The solenoid can be ohmed with an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GE dishwashers have a self clean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back. The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body. This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow the draining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and the plunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstacle for the draining water in the back flush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twist or distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to be accessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the self clean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drain hose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked for restrictions.

Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....

During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled water falls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes through the filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( we hope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into the collection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump out mode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closes the piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collection chamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve is located in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the drain direction only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drain line check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve in the collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out is complete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into the tub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

Here is a link for you to check out...I have all this info in my data base but since it is in PDF format it does not translate well to this format...

I hope this helps...good luck and ggod day...please rate my effort......thanks....The Fang.
