Why is my dishwasher light flashing and stopped half way through, the water will not empty checked filter for blockage and nothing??


Without knowing your model number, a blinking light can mean almost anything.

As for not draining, the motor drives an impeller which forces the drain water up and out of the drain hose. If you can detect the motor running during the drain cycle, then most likely there is a blockage in the drain line. If the motor doesn't run during the drain cycle the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.
If it is running, things that could cause a failure to drain include, broken impeller, failed drain solenoid, drain valve could be clogged with gunk (the solenoid opens the drain valve), clogged drain hose (tend to clog nearest the garbage disposal or sink tailpiece - remove and check to see if open), drain check valve could be clogged closed, or a broken pump belt.

Not all dishwashers have a belt, if you have the owners manual, try looking there first to see if yours has a belt, then check the belt. If you don't have an owners manual, try doing a search using your brand and model number to see if it has a belt. If it does have a belt (then I would suspect this as the first item to check for failure) it's located at the bottom of the machine. You remove the lower panel, (usually held on by 2 to 4 Philips or hex screws), and the then water pump belt is located on the bottom of the motor. (Belt runs from the motor pulley to the pump pulley). Belts just slips onto the pulleys, so no big deal to replace, but you must get the exact belt to replace.

Belt, Water Pump

Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump

If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller

The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit

If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.

Drain Valve

The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer

If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.


Drain Hose

If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve

If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is located in or at the outlet of the pump that the drain hose attaches to. Sometimes the check valve is accessed from the inside of the unit depending on the model.

Check Ball

If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine Aquasmart during cleaning cycle alarm indicating fault code 12 - drum full of water


If the drum is full of water your drain pump is not functioning correctly. Could be a bad pump but more likely it is a clogged drain hose (hose between tub and drain pump) or filter basket on the pump if it has one.

Roper washer washes but doesn't drain during spin cycle.


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Water not draining


You need to access to the drain hose, located under the bottom panel, and check that this is not clogged, if you do not find anything in there, check that the connection to the drain line outside the machine is not clogged.

If still no luck, then check that the drain pump is not faulty, that is possible.
