Check the drain hose under the sink. It should have a high loop an upside down "u" like a hill the water can't climb to get from the sink to the dishwasher. That is where I'd start. Good luck.

Water backs up from the drain in my dishwasher and smells. what is the problem?


Two things can cause this problem:
1. The check valve in your dishwasher may be defective, allowing water and food debris to seep (or run) back into your dishwasher.
2. Your drain hose may not be "mounted up" the way it should be. Look under your sink. Look at how your drain hose is connected to your garbage disposal. If the hose runs down to the floor of your cabinet and into your dishwasher, that is wrong. Instead, it should be mounted up so that water from the sink and garbage disposal would have to flow up first to get into the dishwasher. If you do this, then even if you have a bad check-valve in the dishwasher, it will prevent the problem (or greatly reduce the problem) of dirty water flowing back into your dishwasher.

Dishwasher is not throughly cleasning dishes


it has alot to do with the kind of saop you are useing,,,and lots of time the water is not hot enough to do the job right,,so i would run my hot water in the kitchen sink to make sure the water is hot first. if it is hot in the sink then it will be hot in the dish washer,,,but if it is cold then the dish washers water is cold to,,best to warm water then see what happens from there,,,remember the type of soap you are using to

My sink smells like septic


Assuming the smell is from food particals trapped in sink, and not from bad plumbing allowing gases back up the drain, I would do following.

Boil a large pot of water. Pour a cup full of ordinary bleach in sink, CAREFULLY pour hot water slowly into sink. AVOID breathing bleach fumes which will clear very quickly as it washed away.

For dish washer, use a cup full of bleach with about a quart of cool water in the bottom of dishwasher, close it and run it empty. Once it goes past the first stage, to where it begins to refill, you can interrupt it if you wish. Depending on model, may be better to let it complete.

Water backs up in my lower Fisher & Paykel dish drawer


Make sure the line that water exits from is up high enough that it cannot back up.The instructions say to keep the line as high as possible.

There is water in built in dishwasher when cycle is done.when you open door it runs out and rest remains in bottom of dish washer about an inch and a half of water.


The drain hose is supposed to go from the garbage disposal to a high point under the sink in back to keep the water from gravity draining into the dishwasher when it shuts off. If you look you will see that the hose is laying on the bottom of the sink cabinet. Get a hook and wire it up so you're not washing dishes with water from the disposer. Be sure to run the disposer. if it is clogged with food the dishwasher will not drain, water will back up and drain back into the dishwasher. Also make sure that the pipe exiting the disposer isn't clogged and draining slowly. hhe best solution is to have an air gap that mounts on the sink. It goes between the washer and the disposer to keep this from happening.

Food particles are on dishes after washing


Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.

Water comes back


i assume you mean that water is coming into the machine when not in use.
a common cause of this is if the drain pipe is connected into a spigot on the sink trap. every time you empty water from the sink, some goes down the drain pipe and fills up the machine. the cure is to take the drain pipe up in a swan neck as high as you can under the sink
