Water pours from the vent located on the sink near the faucet.

What can we do to prevent water pouring from the dishwasher vent when the dishwasher is emptying?

    This is a recent development - the water pours out the vent under pressure when the dishwasher is emptying.

Make sure the 'T' where the dishwasher is connected is directing the water downward. also, if this isn't the issue, move the 'T' to the other drain pipe. If the 'T' is too close to the vent, you will get back pressure and it will come out. The less resistance the better.

Bathroom sink smells strongly like sewer when water runs fast.


Suppose you plugged the drain of the sink and filled the basin with water, then removed the plug. I must think that only after the basin empties you would get the sewer smell, and the smell would persist until you slowly ran some more water. If you try this, and this is the result, then the problem is that the sewer vent (that is supposed to prevent the water in the trap under the sink from being sucked down the drain) is not working right. If this is a new problem then you may be able to clear what is probably a blocked vent pipe. If this bathroom has always had this problem, then you have a poorly designed or executed vent pipe setup that you can only fix it with some surgery to your plumbing. However, to clean the vent you can try pouring a good bit of drain cleaner down the vent pipe on the roof, followed by water. But because there may be several vent pipes sharing the same vent stack out the roof, the drain cleaner may not get to your blockage and may simply go down a different path. Good luck.

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.


if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

How to winterize pop up camper 2007 fleetwood pop up it . this site won't let go any where except this car site so if you know how to winterize a pop up camper let me know


Any place that sells campers can advise you. I would disconnect the water supply line underneath the camper and open all faucets. This will drain the lines. Pour some antifreeze especially designed for this purpose in the toilet and in all sinks. Don't forget to flush the toilet and pour a little in the tank after you turn the water off. This will prevent the traps from freezing.

How do you reset the kenmore elite dishwasher? I replaced the faucet in my sink and forgot to turn on the water to the dishwasher....when I started it it went half way through the cycle when I realized...


Turn off the breaker that powers it. If all else fails, take a jug, fill it in the sink and pour it into the bottom of the dishwashwer until it comes to the bottom of the heater, that's the round think suspended above the bottom, below the rack, and turn it back on.

I have started hearing a gurgling sound in my diswasher air vent when I run water in my sink. Why has this begun happening? I have an /estate dishwasher Model TUD7000Y-0


Sounds like your waste water drains could be backing up and pushing water back into the dishwasher.
Firstly try pouring Mr Muscle sink and plughole un-blocker down the sink and leave overnight next morning pour boiling water down the sink and your pipes should be squeaky clean. Hopefully this will improve the flow and prevent gurgling!

Non return valve


Has it always done this? If so it was an install issue. The tech should have put the drain above the drain with a loop to prevent backfill.
