Could be just the trap. try a simple plunger. gather some water in the sink and plunge the drain. if that doesn't work you might need to take the trap off. unless you are mechanic savvy i dont personaly recomend doing this. other wise its time to call the plumber. sorry. your last bet is to try a pipe snake. i found mine at an estate sale. im thinking any plumbing store should have one. just be carefull not to bust the trap.

What would cause a gurgling sound at the kitchen sink when no water is running anywhere in the house?


the waste disposal system for your house was installed by a person who was not competent to do the job and didn't make allowances for sufficient air pipes in the system or placed them on the wrong side of the traps
I would have an engineer inspect the installation to pin point the problem so that what you have doesn't occur and if it is installed contrary to plan and engineering requirements seek legal redress from the plumber that did the job

Dishwasher not draining


if your washer is installed correct your sink has an "air gap" that could need cleaned ( on sink top next to faucet theres a short stubby silver cap) under this is a plastic cap that unscrews (dont run washer with this off water will come out ) try pouring a bit of water down hole if it is blocked your air gap is plugged this will require a plumber to dissasemble it to clean it off

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model#DGHD2433KF1 water droplets remaining on top lower water not draining all the way leaving an odori


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

My dishwasher is draining into my sink and filling it up.


House drain must be plugged, other wise water would be going down the drain.

Dishwasher is not draining properly


Usually this is due to a partially blocked drain. Most of the time the problem is either at the sink / garbage disposal connection or the Air-Gap is blocked near your sink. The air gap sticks up above the sink about 2.5 inches. You lift off the cover, unscrew the inner plastic nut NOTING installed position of the upper cap and lift off the cap. There may be food particulate in there. Clean it out and put it back together. If you foind nothing there then remove the hose from your under sink connection and clean the hole out that the hose connects to.

If you do all of the above and the problem persists just repsond here and we can continue troubleshooting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water remains in bottom, water pump out?


It sounds like one of two possibilities here.

The most likely is a blockage somewhere between the drain pump and the drain in the house (under the sink).

Places to look for this would be an air gap or the fitting where the drain hose connects to the house plumbing. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off of the house pipe under the sink, run that hose into a bucket and see how it drains then. If it is poor then follow back toward the dishwasher until you find the next junction or fitting. If you are sure all these are clear and still not draining, you will most likely need a new drain solenoid.

There is a symbol of a tap when i switch the dishwasher on..and it wont wash anything? It sounds like its draining? Ive tried resetting it and switching on and off but nothing. Does it need filling up with...


need to check your water supply from the house to the dishwasher, it won't operate properly if the water level in the washer is low. Check the water valve at the sink ands the water valve at the dishwasher.

Good Luck on your repairs

Whirlpool Dishwasher DU850DWGX1 won't completely drain


Check the drain pump, it's located behind the toe panel near the front of the machine. Also pull the lower spray arm and filter screen, see if anything is stuck in the sump.

Dishwasher takes too long


first thing to check is the connection from the drain hose to the spigot under the sink. in most cases food accumulates there because the hole inside the spigot in not drilled all the way around when the d/w is installed and a "lip" is left where the food stacks onto. if clear check for a kink in the drain hose at the back of the d/w and all the way to the sink. if ok then time to check the drain pump.

take care.
