We have a bosch dishwasher that doesnt seem to be emptying?

You should pull the unit out of the cavity and check the inlet to the drain pump. Sometimes a label or something will get sucked into the inlet and block it. If you don't find a blockage then either your drain pump is bad or the water level sensor is bad.

My dishwasher didn't drain the water out on the end of the clicle? What could be the problem?

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start where your drain line connects to the house drain,This is where most blocked drains happen. Disconnect the drain line and put it in a bucket and try to drain the dishwasher. Chances are its blocked somewhere you just have to find it.

Pull the dishwasher out of the slot. There is a motor underneath that runs the pump to drain it. The usual cause is the it has a bad connection.

My dishwasher is leaving water in the bottom after finished. The dishes are not cleaning. Are the two related?

Yes more than likely you have a restriction in your pump/drain. you will need to remove the drain cover in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out
  • Empty the dishwasher and remove the dish racks so that you can easily locate the drain inside your dishwasher. The drain is under a drain grate, usually at the back of the dishwasher.

  • Remove the drain grate by either popping the grate out, or by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. Different types of dishwashers will have different options.

  • Use the soapy water and the toothbrush or scrub brush to clean inside the drain area and the grate.

  • Rinse the drain area with clean water. Then replace the drain grate.

  • Pour ½ cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar into the drain (in that order). The mixture will bubble. This will clean the drain and the drain hose.

  • Wait until the vinegar/baking soda mixture has stopped bubbling. Then pour 1 cup of bleach into your detergent dispenser. Replace the dish racks and run the empty dishwasher on a regular cycle. This will clean the entire machine

  • If this does not solve the issue your drain hose may be plugged or crimped and lastly your pump may be failing.

    When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.

    Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

    On whirlpool dishwasher on litle screen we get notification "F6", what should we do, what does it mean?

    This is what it means:

    F6. 6 Flashes. Water valve (WV1) is switched on but flow meter (FM) senses no impulses (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator (WI) is at a low level
    Water Valve Closed. Water inlet hose blocked.
    Water inlet valve (WV1) defective. Flow meter (FM) defective (leads to FM failure)

    The above info is pretty self explanatory but the bottom line is the dishwasher either is not filling fast enough or... is sensing that it is not filling fast enough. Check your inlet water line for flow by first turning off the power and water supply line then remove the line .... open the wall connection valve and check the flow. Also take a flashlight and small mirror if need be to check the hole of the inler to the water valve.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa.
