Dishwasher not draining

M washer was not draining a year ago and it was under warranty. The repairman said it was the drainage pipe under the sink, not being elevated correctly? I really did not watch him. Now it is doing the same thing and I do not want to call someone for an easy fix. I already cleaned out the filter, etc.

Our dishwasher drains into the same pipe our sink does, which I think is the case with almost all of them. If the drain pipe is getting clogged, it will be difficult for the dishwasher to drain. I would suggest to try drain cleaner (BE SURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS) and if that does not help I would remove the hose from the drain under the sink and see if the hose itself is getting clogged. Our sink drain also gets to the point that drain cleaner does not work, so I remove the "trap" and clean it out.

There may be a hidden blockage. Try putting a garden hose into the outlet pipe, tightly gripping the joining point of the hoses and turning on the water briefly. This can sometimes clear things.
Check also that when the machine is set to the "Drain" position that you can hear the whirr of the drain pump motor. If you can, then the electrics are intact and the pump impelllor inside the pump may have come loose on its shaft or be jammed with a small foreign object. It would be necessary then to remove the pump and dismantle it, or just replace it with a new one.
As always I warn non-technical people to beware of attempting repairs. Not because they may not be mechanically apt...........it is more about them not being used to the Strict Self Safety Disciplines that experienced servicing personnel have in place that protect them from possible injury or even electrocution.
It is simply not worth risking life and limb by trying to avoid the cost of a professional service call after all a life is surely worth much more than that.
Importantly ALWAYS unplug any appliance from the power point before doing anything !!

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 Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

My dishwasher will not drain


Sounds like you may either have a blocked drainage line or a bad pump which controls draining the washer.

I would check to see if there is food scraps blocking the drainage screen inside the wash tub. This is typically the most common problem. If your washer unit drains into the sink drain such as connecting through the garbage disposal (as some do) this might be clogged with what is known as FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) buildup. This would cause the water to be blocked from being pumped out of the tub.

Check these things and see if they help. A replacement pump can run as much as $100 depending on the unit, plus the installation labor from a repairman. If the unit is more than 5 years old, you might want to consider a newer, more efficient washer unit. A new washer from places like Lowes, can be as little as $300.

Cheers,

Keith

Im having a problem desiding how to hook my drainage pipe up from the dishwasher i cant put it next to the sink cause theres no room so i have to put it on the other side of the kitchen could i connect new...


you can put a new verticle pipe up from under the floor and put the drain hose in that. make sure the vertical pipe comes up to about worktop level and make sure there is a water barrier in it or you will get a nasty smell

SA 660 SMEG dishwasher constantly filling....


this can be water draining from your sink into the dishwasher via the drain pipe, assuming the drain pipe goes to a spigot on the sink trap.
take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck to prevent this.

My dishwasher will not drain completely


I had a similar thing with ours. Found out the drainage pipe that goes from the dishwasher to the pipes under the sink was blocked. Take hold of the pipe that geos under your sink from the dishwasher (usually a flexible pipe) and give it a shake and a bang a few times. Also check the filter inside your dishwasher, take it all out and give it a good wash. Look inside the cavity where the filter came out of and make sure no food / fat or other gunk is inside that. I also found those dishwasher cleaner things work very well at unblocking. Buy from a supermarket and you put it in the dishwasher with no dishes. Ours worked like brand new after I did all of this. Good Luck.

Diswasher drainage in an island


Dbootin,

I suggest just putting a dedicated Drain in the island next to the Dishwasher. You can hide it in side the island. Under the house, tee into the Main Sewage drain.  You should not need to vent it as the sinks vent is near enough to keep you from worrying about that.
