Kitchenaid dishwasher will not drain completely model kuds25shwh1

I have a dishwasher that seems to work well, but after the wash cycle is complete, I discover a small amount of water inside, above the circular drain filter. This has been happening in the last dozen or cycles, the water is cloudy and does not drain completely. I have tried an additional rinse cycle to see if it clears out, but to no avail, only the water gets clearer. I have checked the drain pipe and appears to be clean at the spot where it dumps into the garbage disposer. Any ideas before I start pulling the whole unit out to look under and beyond?

    If you push the cancel button, the problem seems to go away for a while. This is not a solution, but a quick fix to another anoying Kitchenaid problem. The help I got from KitchenAid was

    - new motor for my hood,

    - dishwasher - reconnect some drain pipe to get the machine going for the 1st time (1st week)

    - stove - change the door and glass (product came with a crooked door and the glass broke trying to refit the door.( 1st week)

    -fridge - changed the magnet lining (1st week)

    The solution - DO NOT SUGGEST TO ANYONE TO BUY AMERICAN. Nobody needs these anoying problems.

There is a plastic cover in the back over the drain under the dish tray,, pull out the tray and in th back of the dish washer there you will look down and see a small strainer that is plastic, you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the cover,, after you remove it there is a couple of pastice peices to take out that are just laying there, remove them and there is a small blade that is there to help cut up food that has been left behind on the dishes,, you can remove this and under it you will find the drain hole,, clean out any debris that is in there, if you have to you might want to take tha bottom cover off the lower front of the dish washer take off the drain hose and flush water thru,, adfter this and then reinstalling everything the way it was, run the dish washer if it still has water sitting in the bottom it is time to get a new pump, it is bad and not pumping,,, you may wish to have an appliance person out to tackle this job,, good luck

Check to see if the drain hose is excessively long. If it is, either trim it as short as possible and install a dishwasher air gap, or arrange the hose in such a way that it goes up as high as possible, and the majority of its length is sloping down towards the disposer. My guess is that the hose fills up, the drain pump cuts off, and the water runs backwards down the hose into the dishwasher. You may also be able to find a one-way check valve that will fit the hose at your local hardware store. Again, install this valve as close as possible to the dishwasher.

I have a KitchenAid Side by Side with a stubborn ice maker (modular). It seems to make ice, but it won't complete the full harvest cycle for some reason. I can mess around with it (basically warm it...


Hello Tom,

I see where ya said the water dispenser works good and thats cool! when you do get the i/m to run the ice harvest cycle are the cubes full size? if yes the water supply can be ruled out as a possibility. Besides the water not seeming as cold are other things in the fresh food compartment NOT as cold as they are not as cold as in the past,if yes try removing the grill below the doors and clean the dust from the coil there,if it isn't there its the rear of the ref. by the compressor. One of the first things to be affected when a ref is working hard to keep things cool due to a dusty coil is going to be the icemaker,it will freeze the ice but the internal thermostat inside of the i/m module isn't satisfied its cold enough to start the harvest. When jumping out the T&H what exactly your doing is jumping the t-stat regadrless of the temp. of it ,causing it to run a harvest cycle

I hope this answer helps you,
Gene

Ice maker not getting water. Everything else seems to work fine. I can put water manually into the ice maker and get ice. But no water from the line. It is a KSRS251 superbra side by side Kitchenaid model.


You will have to remove the icemaker and look inside the water fill tube at the rear wall of the freezer.
The water line may be frozen closed.
If so,take a hair dryer and thaw it out.

This manual will explain other test to complete.

Dishwasher won't drain


Check the following areas to combat this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

My dishwasher leaves crumbs and food particles stuck to everything in the top rack


Usually this problem is due to the fact that the dirty particle filled water isn't fully draining and the unit is trying to rinse the dishes with fouled water thus baking any leftover food particles during the dry cycle.
Make sure that all of the water is draining from the dishwasher after all drain cycles.

Usually poor draining is due to a blockage or partial blockage in the drain line,also the blockage can be at the drain pump itself or where the drain connects to the under sink drain
