SOURCE: triton triclean not draining

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.


Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Our GE Triton TriClean III didn't drain, and now won't even give me an "on" signal when I lock it. Is it dead?


Check the circuit breaker before you make any hard-and-fast decisions. Find the appropriate circuit breaker, turn it off, wait fifteen seconds, then turn it back on. Now try it.

You need to check the drain system completely, look for plugged screens, pump impellers, valves and the drain hose. You need to witness a large volume of water flow during drain.

Kenmore quiet pak III dishwasher has a whining noise


Most of these dishwashers have separate circulation and drain pumps and there is a good chance that there is an issue with the circulation pump impeller issue under the lower wash arm. The bottom panels under the door can be removed to check it out.
