SOURCE: water not pumped out of dishwasher

To cut a long story short, lower the drain pipe as close to the floor as you can. Some dish washers have a non return rubber which holds the water in the cabinet until asked to drain.Meaning water wont just flow out with pipe being low.(Im assuming the drain pump is operating correctly).Check if this alteration makes any difference.

SOURCE: MY DISH washer electric supply wires are cutdown

Hi .. the electrical input to the dishwasher should be a 3 wire cable, black, white, green/bare. The connection is generally into a small metal box just behind the kick plate on the right side of the front of the washer. The cable gets run thru a cable connector to keep the presure off the connection. The connection is black to black, white to white, green/bare to a ground screw in the connection box.

SOURCE: Before I started my dishwasher,

The water inlet valve is faulty. When you open the door, it should cut power to the valve, so your valve must be sticking open.

My dishwasher is not enough with water at the start of the cleaning cycle


My new DW had the same problem but when I had a tech come to the house he explained that the DW only uses .8 gallons of water and that what I am seeing is normal. Do your dishes come out clean? My did, so I guess he was right. Good Luck...xo

My plumber just installed a new water supply line for my dishwasher. Now the pump comes on but no water fills up in the machine. If I fill the bottom of the unit with water, it works just fine. Even though...


You don't know how many times I've heard and found the shutoff valve off or partly turned off. Water entering DW is from line pressure not pumping. Items to suspect (again) the water supply valve (would'nt be the first time a new valve is bad). The supply valve (3374621) at the Dw, the float safety switch (normally at front left side,)...remove lower rack, lift float housing up and down. You should hear a click both ways and the housing should be free. Is the Dw fill valve getting control signal from timer. Should be 120v for about 60 sec.

The first cycle water is not hot - all other cycles are hot - the water in the sink next to the dishwasher is not???


Where does the dishwasher connect to hot water? If it is connected to cold it must be changed. From your description, the water is coming from a long way off and has to warm the pipes as it travels to the dw. The dw should have a heater to bring the water up to temp after filling before it runs, if this heater is not working, the first run will be cold and the next hot because you have drawn enough water through the pipes to bring hot water to the dw.
1. Change where the dw gets hw.
2. Run hw in the sink before allowing the dw to start (if connected to same line).
3. Fix the dw's water heater.

Three possible fixes. Good luck.

HOW TO REPLACE HEATING ELEMENT


Turn off the electric panel breaker that powers the unit! Check to make certain it is off before proceeding.

You will need to disconnect the Dishwasher (DW) from the electric, water and drain lines and remove it from under the counter in order to be able to access the underside of the DW. There you will find two (2) wires connected to the heating element along with a couple of fasteners that hold it in place. Also check inside the DW for any hold down clamps, etc. on the heating element there.

Once you have removed the connectors and mounting screws, you can then remove the element from the inside of the DW. You will need to "pop" out the grommets that the element passes through from the inside to the underside of the DW, as these keep water from leaking past the elements. Just remove and save those grommets and reinstall them onto the new element and slip it back inside the DW and through the holes in the floor of the unit. Reconnect the wires and re-fasten the screws or clamps that hold the element in place and reinstall the DW back under the counter, reconnecting the water and drain lines and the electric power.

This is a fairly simple and money saving repair for the DIY'er and well worth the time it will take you to perform the replacement. Good luck and hope this helps. Here's a link to the versions of your DW that will show you what it looks like for the parts and placement for your specific unit as I couldn't locate an exact match without the rest of the model number series. Just select yours and look at the diagrams to find the heating element on the inside of the wash tub.

KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use


Hi BB,
There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?

The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...
db113bd.jpg

Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...
4cc45a0.jpg

The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...
1144177.jpg
I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.

After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.

Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

Dishwasher pumps water out on floor


It is possible that when installing the dishwasher...if the hose was pulled or jarred or even just from the factory the spring clamp may have come loose....also is there a new Disposal involved...if so there is a plug in the disposal that has to be removed in order to drain. These are the only things I can think of on a NEW DW that could cause water to drain on the floor.....take the toe plate off...turn the DW so that it drains all the while looking under the DW....does it shoot out with force...if so a hose is loose if it is a slow leak a clamp may be loose.

I hope this helps .....good luck....thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

Problem with water cycling


You say the water valve is open, are you referring to the supply water valve, or the water valve inside the dishwasher?

If the supply valve is open, then chances are that the electric water valve inside the dishwasher is bad, or the dishwasher control is bad.

Usually, the water line connects right at the water valve, underneath the dishwasher.

Reply with the make and model number of the DW and I can give further instruction if you or someone you know is good with a multimeter and reading schematics or wiring diagrams.

Dish washer that does not pump out the water on it"s final cycle


I had this same problem and after having the repairman over to our house several times and having the circuit board changed, I figured it out on my own...

It turns out that the pressure created from the steam during the water heating stage (HO) was pushing on the door latch just enough to prevent the motor from running properly. Because the door wasn't latched completely, the water wouldn't drain and the dishwasher would go to the "Drying" cycle without ever pumping the water out of the basin.

I adjusted the levelling on the DW and that helped, but I'm still not sure that the problem is fixed. We may need a new latch assembly.

To test this, when the DW stops running at any time, push on the door. If the motor kicks back on, this is the problem.

Water will not drain


First, check for blockages.

Check the bottom of the washer for any broken glass, paper, plastic etc that can be blocking the drain.

Then check the hose and where it dumps into the homes main drain system.(Typically found under the sink attached to the garbage disposal or drain off the sink basin)

If the garbage disposal is bad or clogged, it can cause the DW to not drain as well.

If you have no blockages, then you likely have a bad pump.

If that's the case, check to see if the unit is under warranty.
If not, it is not uncommon for the cost of replacing a pump to approach the cost of buying a new washer. Especially if the washer is quite old or a near base model.

The parts alone typically cost 60 to 120 bucks. If you have to pay a tech to perform the labor, expect to pay between 175 to 275.

It is much easier to replace a DW than it is to replace the pump. So if you are unfortunate enough to have a bad pump, my advice would be to buy a new washer, and install it yourself.

I will be happy to help you with that as well.
(It's basically two hoses and three wires.)
