If you will open the door on the front of the dishwasher, you should see two small screws going through tabs holding the dishwasher to the countertop. They are in the front, and above the door. If you will remove those screws, you should be able to pull the dishwasher out about halfway into the room. Do not pull it farther, because there are 3 important components you want to leave hooked up. The electric wires, the drain hose, and the fill hose. Remove the front lower panel that hides the bottom of the dishwasher, and you should see a water pump made of plastic maybe the size of your fist, maybe on the right side. The drain hose should be attached to that pump, as should electric wires. The drain hose goes to the sink drain in most cases Find a way to catch the water and or sludge that may come out of that hose, and remove the hose from the pump that goes to the sink drain. You may need a pan that holds a quart or more liquid. See if that hose is clear of being plugged up. Sometimes too much food left on the dishes can plug up the pump or the hose. Examine the pump to see if it is plugged. If the hose goes to the garbage disposal, perhaps that is where the plug-up is.
Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink. Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal. First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink. Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off. Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher. Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop. You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher. When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out. If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet. If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you. ash
try replacing the "squeeze tube" inside the dispensing unit. Over time the tube flattens out. If the tube is flattened no chemical will be drawn from your jug.
Disconnect inlet and outlet hoses on rinse aid dispensing unit.
Remove 4 screws and pull off outer face of dispensing unit. You can watch the dispenser operate with the face off if you wish, as long as the hose doesn't fall out (which it won't).
Remove squeeze tube and install new tube.
Reassemble inlet and outlet hoses (be sure to not mix up which tube/hose goes on top and which on bottom).
Also possible that the hose from the chemical jug to the dispensing unit has a hole/crack or otherwise. If the hose has a leak it'll lose suction and draw air in from the leak and not pull chemical.
I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.
You will definatly have to slide the unit out from under the counter, dont forget the two or three screws at the top of the washer to the cabinets or counter, and if it has side panels over the insulation, you will have to access the first set of screws from underneath the dishwasher. Sometimes removing the front door helps. Careful not to lose screws, and expect that you'll have to re adjust the unit to fit back under the counter by leveling it. Do your best not to mess up the current setting of the levelers unless there is a floor height difference that will prevent you from pulling it out. (i.e. tile kitchen, and no tile under dishwasher)
When you slide it back, make sure not to pinch hoses, (feed or drain) level it as best as possible, and replace all screws!
The machine is held in the cabinet with several screws that go up into the front edge of the cabinet. Open the door to find the screws. Lift up on the washer cabinet slightly to avoid harming the kitchen floor when pulling the machine out. Try pulling the hose connection at the sink drain stub and using a wet/dry vacuum, **** the end of the hose and the drain stub. With luck, the clog will be pulled out. Good luck!
TO SLIDE THE UNIT OUT YOU MUST UNINSTALL THE MACHINE. START BY UNSCREWING THE TOP. ANY SCREW THAT HOLD THE MACHINE IN ON TOP AND SIDES IF APPLIES. CHECK THE DRAIN AND FILL HOSE TO SEE HOW MUCH LINE YOU HAVE TO PULL OUT UNIT. IF DRAIN HOSE IS SHORT DISCONNECT FROM UNDER THE SINK. IF FILL HOSE IS SHORT TURN OFF WATER GOING INTO MACHINE AND DISCONNECT HOSE. IF ELECTRICAL IS SHORT THEN DISCONNECT FROM TERMINAL BLOCK BUT MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF. THAT SHOULD DO IT.
the most important thing is to screw it to the bench,there are four screw points two at the top and two on the side near the top if you look you will see the tags where they go.as far as the hoses go just make sure the drain hose is up high and not laying on the floor.hope this helps.if connecting to hot water it must be below 60 degrees.and you probably wont need a pressure limitin valve fitted to the tap.
