GE 2200 Series Dishwasher pumping through air gap

When pumping water comes out of airgap creating a mess around sink. This was previously installed at sisters and didn't have this problem.

Please help. Have high water pressure in house not sure if this means anything, don't think so.
Handyman not sure resolution to problem other than having a longer pipe from dishwasher connected.
Me, I'm clueless and hope someone can help.
Thank you

    Thanks although all parts are brand new, including sink, garbage disposal and air gap. Is it possible their is a problem just in the pipe itself belonging to the dishwasher? This too was fairly new and only used for a few months
    Thank you for helping me.

How do unclog the drain on my dishwasher model 665.16902400


Unhook the drain hose for the sink connection. Clean out port connection of the sink connection..
leave the hos off until you complete Air-Gap inspecion / cleaning (next)

On most installs there is an Air-Gap on the back of the kitchen sink.
images?q=tbn:and9gcq21cbh2axzfji-fvyvbg8mgnyhpmkowhj1toxxffd2qewqkya7dbgxkvqy
Pull the outer shell cover straight up and off.
NOTE the inner nut and diverter cap installed position. (It only fits one way)
Unscrew the inner plastic nut
Remove diverter cap.
Use a flash light and wire coat hanger to clear any obstructions from the outlet. Place the end you removed from thge cink connection into a bucket and pour water into the hole where the diverter cap was. This will flush the drain portion of the Air-gap and outlet hole to the sink connection.
Next remove the dishwasher drain hose from the air gap connection. Place removed Hose in the bucket and secure it if you can not hold it.
Set diswasher to wash or cancel drain and let the residual water in the dishwasher pump into the bucket. (can make a mess if pump flow is strong.) Keep a rag in your hand. If you now have good flow... reconnect the dishwasher drain hose to the Air-Gap Connection and the Air Gap to sink connection to the sink connecton port. Task complete.

If you still have a problem after doing the above... Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and check the dishwasher outlet port for obstructions. Remove any obstructions.

Ok now... if it is still not draining.. I need to confirm your model number because it is not crossing to any repair or parts data. You posted 665.16902400 is this correct? Let me know if your stil having problems. I think I can work around the model number issue but would prefer to have a good model number if you have to remove the lower wash arm and clean the sump area. (Last)

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I...


Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

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.

The leak in an air gap is usually caused by a clogged sink discharge line. Most of the time this is connected to the garbage disposal and there is food particulate in the drain hole where the dishwasher drain from the air gap to the garbage disposal connects.

Pull the sink connection hose off and clean the hole thoroughly. You can try testing the dishwasher/ air gap by placing the disconnected hose into a bucket during the pump out period. It should not leak. After this test...reconnect the hose to the sink connection.

If it is NOT connected to the garbage disposal then remove the hose and clean out the hole where the connection is made. This is a common problem and easily resolved by the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Maytag mdb4000awx dishwasher wont drain. Started to over flow and spill out of the front. Garbage disposal isn't clogged


Hi, I have to ask if there is an air gap installed on your sink? It would look like a chrome cap on the back of the sink. The gargage disposal can be clean and this little bugger can still cause a blockage in the Dishwasher drain line.

The very bottom part of the inner tub sump area could also be clogged but you would have to get a bright light and look hard without removing anything. Food particle build up in the sump would cause the unit not to drain. Usually if there is food particle build up there are wash problems also.

At the moment I am sticking with a clogged air gap as the prime suspect. They are easy to clean... pull off the upper cover unscrew the plastic inner nut and remove the raised piece... (NOTE the installed position of the raised area because if you put it back wrong it will be like installing a drain plug in the drain line!) Usually if the air gap is clogged you will see it right away. I have in the past come across a few that it took sacrificing a coat hanger to clear the clog.

Water in dishwasher will not drain.


Check the following to address 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
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
