Dishwasher not draining

My dishwasher stopped draining. Nothing comes out of the outlet at the sink, but I hear sounds as if it's about to. Water is standing at the bottom. How do I fix the drainage problem. If there is a clog in the drain, how do I unclog it?

It does sound like a clogged pipe what I would suggest is that you first remove the filter inside the unit and then take the drain hose where it joins the sik out let and blow on it to try and force the clog back into the machine then you should be able to see what the clog was and remove ,replace filter and set to drain let it drain and then use as normall,if the pipe is clear then there is an obstruction in the pump impeelar houseing itself in wich case you need to pull the unit out and remove the bottom panell and locate the pump (the small unit that is attached to the drain hose) remove both pipes and then the pump and visually inspect then feel it if you need to (be catefull there could be a sharp object stuck in there) and if there is anything remove it and replace the pump and pipes,hope this helps let us know if there are any further problems or if you came right.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

Dishwasher not working.... when i close the dishwasher and turn it on i can not hear any water running and there is a pool of water at the bottom that will not drain


Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.


Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink. but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling. One heck of a water bill.

Low water level error with a new samsung dishwasher. Only 3 months old. What could be the problem?


Do you hear the washer draining (into the sink drain) after it fills and should start washing? Check that nothing (sound deadener, etc.) is interferring with the drain valve lever arm.

need to check your water supply from the house to the dishwasher, it won't operate properly if the water level in the washer is low. Check the water valve at the sink ands the water valve at the dishwasher.

Good Luck on your repairs

There is water left in the dishwasher and the smell comes up through the drain


Look under the sink where the dishwasher drain line connects to the waste pipe outlet. The dishwasher connecting hose should be supported higher than the outlet connection. If the dw drain hose is too low the sink drain water is backing into the dishwasher.

No water coming in after sink blockage


Sounds simple , but the plumber may have shut the dishwasher water off. Valve is probably under the sink or near the machine in the basement or crawl space. Good luck.

Dish washer not working, lights come on but nothing happens, will not drain water that is in there either.


flooding the sink won't have anything to do with the dishwasher.unless the check valve on the dishwasher got stuck closed. Can you hear the pump come on?
