Question about KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with water and watched for any water to enter the dishwasher. No water entered. Do any of you have any ideas? Thanks

Dishwasher won't drain completely. Several inches of standing water left after last cycle


Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?

Built in dishwasher. Dishes are clean but leaves the interior dirty. Have cleaned it with dishwasher cleaner, then a few weeks later its grubby again.. This has just been happening in the last few...


Check your drain hose to make sure no water from the sink is draining back into the dishwasher.
If it is,re-hook the drain hose up high under the sink.
Next.
Start the dishwasher without dishes or detergent.
Once the fill and was cycle begins,open the door and por in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle to completion.

My dishwasher has not been cleaning well over the last few months. Ive tried different dewtergents but it seems more to do with the operation. How do I figure out whats going on?


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Water not completely drianed after running, is this normal?


Hello. There should be no water left in the bottom at the end of the wash cycle. There are a few possible causes, the most common one being debris in the small pump that pumps the water out of the machine and into your sink drain, or debris in the hose vrom the dish washer to the sink, or a blockage where the dishwasher empties into your food disposal [if you have one installed].

The dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain


Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!

Kitchenaid dishwasher will not drain completely model kuds25shwh1


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

Have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.


I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.
