GE Dishwasher 2200 series - water comes out airgap

When draining water the water comes out of airgap and creates mess around sink.
Just installed. Have high water pressure in house could it be due to this. Previously installed at sisters and worked fine
Handyman who installed not sure how to resolve other than suggesting the pipe from dishwasher should perhaps be a longer one.
Me, I'm clueless and was hoping someone could help me please.

Thank you

Ge diswasher wont drain


So you have an airgap ? if you might have a clog . if you are not sure dind were your drain hose runs to . usally it is under your sink cabinet , you can unhook the end of the drain hose and put in a large bucket and dorce drain your dishwasher. if no luck take the filter screen out from the bottom inside and look for broken glass or whatever would prevent a drain. oh get a wet vac to remove water so you can see what you are looking for. Also listen for a hum when you force drain if you do not hear anything call for service, pump is dead or not getting voltage

I want to install an RO unit. For the RO faucet connection I would like to use the air gap connection on the sink that connects to my GLD5960 SS dishwasher. Can I get rid of the air gap connection from...


Hello,
The airgap prevents the water from the sink backflowing into the dishwasher. You could espically if your dishwasher hasa corragated plastic drain hose attach it under the sink so at one point the hose is higher that the nozzle of the disposer it connects to so the hose is still higher that the level of the nozzle and water wont backfill into the dishwasher.

Remodeled kithen; when dishwasher reinstalled, water backs up


OK, I have made this error before.
When you install a new garbage disposal, it comes with a "plug" that fills the hole of the little pipe that the dishwasher drain hose connects to (if there is a dishwasher.)
Remove that plug (see instructions for the disposal) and you should be all set.
Also, if you ever get the chance, consider installing a dishwasher AirGap valve between your dishwasher and garbage disposal. They are almost free at any hardware store.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find.

Model LD-14AW2 alarms after 1 minute of startup and says E1


The E1 error is telling you that there is a leak in the dishwasher. After confirming that there is no leak, even directly under the dishwasher (remove the kickplate and use a flashlight.)
After ruling that out, your problem is almost certainly caused by the drain hose between your dishwasher and your drain. There MUST be a 30" rise in the drain hose between the DW and the drain. If the hose just lays there, causing a siphoning effect (law of physics) that WILL drain water out of the dishwasher into the drain as soon as a wash or rinse cycle begins (after 1 - 2 minutes after they begin. Then the E1 error will be displayed.
The BEST way to fix this problem is to install an AirGap valve (almost free @ any hardware store) in your counter/sink and then running the short pipe to your disposal or sing drain inlet. If that is not possible or for a quick and dirty repair until you can install the AirGap, tie the drain hose to the bottom of the counter top so the rise is created.
Good Luck!

check your airgap by the faucet of your sink. usually a metal cylinder is the cap. then you might have tabs to press in, or the top of the airgap can unscrew. usually i find stuff in there. mostly fishbones.. otherwise make sure the holes towards the bottem left of your dishwasher tub under your filters arnt clogged up. sometimes calcium gets in there a clogs those holes to the drain pump.

if no airgap then check that hole to the disposer. reach your finger in there towards where the dishwasher drain line is coming in and make sure that isnt clogged up.

Dishwasher draining into kitchen sink!


Is the water coming out the holes of the airgap "vent". If so, you have an obstruction from the hose that goes from the "vent" to the garbage disposer and is causing the drain water to back up. __________________
