Is sink drain line clogged? Disconnect drain line at sink tailpiece and lower down to see if water inside dishwasher drains. Call serviceman to clear clog in dishwasher hose, or repair dishwasher pump motor.
It can be disheartening to open your Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and find
that the device is full of dirty water that has not drained from a
previous cycle. Although you certainly would rather have no problems,
having a problem with the washing machine not draining as well as it
should is one of the easiest-remedied problems to have. Fixing this
problem doesn't require you to pay a repairman; you should be able to doityourself.
Open the cabinet under the sink.
Unscrew the clamp that is holding the drain hose to the garbage disposal valve.
Insert a screwdriver into the
valve opening and tap the handle of the screwdriver with a hammer. Doing
this will remove the knockout plug from the opening. The knockout plug
is designed to be used for garbage disposals that are not connected to
dishwashers. People often fail to remove the knockout plug when
installing a dishwasher to the disposal.
Insert tongs into the top of the garbage disposal opening and remove the knockout plug from the device.
Replace the drain hose and screw the clamp back into place.
HERE ARE TOOLS NEEDED AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SOLVE THE DRAINING PROBLEM BELOW.
(A) Clean cloth(s) (B) Wrench (if necessary)
Whirlpool brand dishwashers come in black, brown, stainless steel or white finishes and a variety of sizes as well. Most Whirlpool dishwashers are energy efficient, and many have features such as a sanitizing rinse, enhanced sound effects, large capacity tubs and adjustable shelves and racks. However, none of these features will help users much if the dishwasher is not draining. While this issue may require professional repair, some troubleshooting steps may help determine if there is a relatively simple cause for the problem.
1 Verify that the Whirlpool dishwasher has not lost power due to a power failure or motor overload. Wait a few minutes to see if the motor automatically resets and resumes operation. Reset the circuit breaker or fuse if necessary.
2 Press or select "Start" to resume the cycle if the dishwasher was stopped mid-cycle. Choose a new drain cycle if necessary to remove excess water from the unit.
3 Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from power. Examine the connection between the dishwasher and the garbage disposer, usually located underneath the kitchen sink. Make sure the disposer knockout plug was taken out between the two.
4 Run the garbage disposer in the kitchen sink to remove potential blockages.
5 Remove objects that may be blocking the drain on the dishwasher. Clean out the drain hose at the rear of the dishwasher.
The drain hose under the sink needs to be tied up,above the point where it enters the drain pipe or disposal,water is feeding back into the unit,run the disposal more often also this helps prevent this from happening.
you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper
Remove the drain line where it hooks into the disposal. See if the plug, which must be removed to let water thru, is still in there. I ran into this on a service call a few years back. Removed to plug and voila! Hope this helps!
