DU943PWK won't drain

A glass broke (exploded) in the dishwasher and now it won't drain. I took everything out of the interior, including the filter (screen thing) on the bottom and vacuumed ALL the glass pieces out. Where do I go next?

    Excellent advice. I had already checked the drain line and even cleared the tip of the tube you refer to, but didn't know it would come off. It is actually a valve-check and has a little flap in it to prevent back flow. Took that off, cleaned it and it fixed the problem. Thanks ARTIACOUSMC

If you take the bottom panel off the DW, there is a white plastic tube that is sticking out, but attached to the motor. Turn the tube counter clockwise ( Please be sure to have wet vac ready as this tube will let water out, even if you think you have all water out, still have wet vac and towels ready) Pieces of things get stuck in that tube and make it hard to drain.. replace tube to motor after cleaning and test unit

Water won't drain out


Hello Veronica Spellman - Have you recently cleaned the filter? This can be doing by a glass trap located in the center of the filter designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, pits, etc. You should simply be able to grasp handle, lift out, empty and place it back. Also is the unit making a grinding noise? If so, I personally recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately and assist with the repairs. The dishwasher could possibly have a faulty drain motor/pump.

There is a filter at the bottom of the dishwasher where the dishwasher drains. This filter is probably plugged. You may also have a kink in the drainline. The dishwasher usually drains into either a drainpipe under the sink or into the disposal. If your disposal is full this will also cause the dishwasher to not drain properly.

Dishwasher won't start - I get an F7 message on my ADP5966


Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a programme). this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filter's clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine. F7 in whirlpoolese may mean "Clean my filter

DU943PWK model, water is sitting in bottom, won't drain


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Water does not drain out completely after cycling


Hi


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.


Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn

So it turns out that it was the disposer blades right behind the motor that were causing the problem. I took the filter off of the drain and found I had a piece of glass and a plastic army man gun trapped in the filter to the drain that the blades were hitting and stuck on. I took them out made sure the blades spun freely and then replaced the filter. It works as good as new!
