HI. check the following areas for faults.

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
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Dish washer does not drain


Our dushwasher did the same recently and I found a toothpick had jammed the drain pump impeller. because it had seperate drain and wash pumps, the wash cycle would work but not the drain cycle.

I had to pull the dishwasher out to get at the drain pump. Fortunately my pump seperates into two parts so I could clean it without having to redo the drain plumbing.

After running a full cycle the dishes have a film left on them. Sometimes soap is not rinsred off the dishes. Tried different soaps for dish washers. It seems the only thing to take the film off of the...


Film on dishes post cycle is caused by 2 things.... Poor water flow during the wash / rinse cycle.... i.e clogged sump inlets or restricted drains. Clean the drain hose first. Start at the cink connection and clean EVERY connection and in-line componenet from the port hole at the sink connection all the way back to the drain hise connection port at the dishwasher.

If you still have dirty dishes post cycle after drain cleaning... then remove the lower wash arm support and clean the accumulator / sump area thoroughly. See this link: (items 1 and 4) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5140844&diagram_id=28222738#d28222738

Test again.

If the problem persists you will have to gain access to the pump impeller. Inspect the impeller, and pump housing for damage. UNDER the dishwasher. Item 22 of the above link.

This should get your diswasher performing properly again.

I used this model number as a reference: GU2400XTPB1

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Water is not drained from the tub when washing of the dishes is complete


The filter is probably blocked.


It is inside the base of the machine.


Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

Not cleaning dishes properly


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Dirty dishes post cycle are a sign of draining problems however this is a list of what it could be.

1. A partially clogged drain
2. The timer motor is not functioning properly
3. A broken or worn pump impeller

Here is what you need to do:

Check your entire drain system. Start at the final outlet and work your way backward to the motor pump connection on the dishwasher.

Suspected areas are.

a. The sink connection outlet is clogged (this can be inside a garbage disposal.

b. The air-gap is clogged in the very top part of the air-gap (Usually located on the back of the sink and is around 3 inches tall) Remove the cover, unscrew the top nut and check under the horse shoe bend inside the plastic top for obstructions. Clean as needed)

c. There is debris on top of the the motor pump housing blocking the inlet drain. (This would be inside the housing of the lower wash arm on the very bottom)

d. The motor pump outlet drain port is partially blocked. (only accessable from the motor pump exit hole after drain hose removal.)

A partially blocked inlet tub drain to the motor pump would also explain your soap dispenser problem. Additionally you would have spotted dishes post cycle.

When the drain is partially blocked some models use the float level switch in the tub to control the advancement of the timer. If the water does not drain the motor pump continues to run and run and the cycle does not advance until the tub is drained and the float switch senses same. i.e extended cycle

Thanks for using FixYa.

Does not drain even though it is not clogged


How do you know it's not clogged in the pipe/pump/outlet?
There can be several issues with this. If the pipe for the dishwasher is installed wrong, there may not be enough back pressure for the drain pump. See your install instructions.
The drain solenoid may not be functioning. (Listen for a sudden 'Thunk' when the dish washer hits the drain cycle). It may not have a solenoid.
The pump should be running if the dishes get washed.
There is a back flow valve at the drain hose outlet on the pump. Is it jammed/clogged?
The worst is a failure of the pump impeller or diverter. This means a motor.

Dish washer is seldom used , maybe twice a year. Notice during a drain cycle that the pump makes a squaling noise.This happens only after the load of the water has pass through the pump. The dishwasher is...


The pump impeller is probably plastic -- if so, dry rot is out.

Most likely the pump shaft is just dry from lack of use. More use will probably wet it enough to stop the squeal.

LG LDF8812ST WONT DRAIN JUST INTERMITTENT BUZZ NOISE


Hi, there may be an obstruction in the pump housing that is causing the motor to freeze or, the impeller may be stripped and , jamming the pump. this will cause the hum you are hearing. the best way to inspect is to , extract the drain pump by, removing
the bottom drain filter housing or sump. manually
move the pump impeller to self it is moving freely. if the impeller is stripped, it will not be able to produce the draining surge necessary to pull the water out.

If the impeller is fine and, there are no obstructions visible, this will confirm pump failure.. replace the pump in this case


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.

Dishwasher dose not drane


YOU CAN TRY REMOVING THE LOWER RACK AND LIFT OFF THE SPRAYER. THE DRAINAGE WHOLE IS USUALLY VISABLE. YOU CAN FLUSH OUT THE DRAIN TO SEE IF THAT DOES IT. THERE SHOULD BE NO STANDING WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR DISH WASHER AFTER WASH CYCLE AND DRY CYCLE. HOPE I COULD HELP.
