Hi,


You have blockage inside, in the drain line, or if it connects to the disposal side of the sink. I would first check at the disposal, if it does indeed connect there. Usually gunk from the disposal will clog right at the opening where the dishwasher drain line connects. Clear any debris with the hose disconnected. Reconnect the hose and run water back through the dishwasher to clear the rest out. If it is connected to the disposal your drain line should be looped or at least up high under the sink to prevent garabage from back feeding into your dishwasher. Hope this Helps, Please rate my response! Thanks!! PREM

HI,

Thank you for choosing Fixya.com.

Please drain it again and double check the parts if you bring it back orderly..

if some of the parts are not tighted and bring it back correctly accidentally it will cause some subtances will leak like what you are experiencing.

in this case sometimes we need some specialist to look our machine maybe some parts are damages and need to replace.

any changes happen let me know?

Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

Check the drain line it will be clogged . clean it .

    It sounds like the drain pump is defective.
    Disconnect the drain hose
    under the sink & place it in a bucket, start the dishwasher in a
    drain cycle.
    If no water drains out, you will need to replace the drain
    pump.

Hi Monique,

By any chance is your kitchen sink draining slowly? If the main drain is clogged it will back-up all the way to the dishwasher. Try using 2-Second Plumber or a similar product with a CO2 blast to clean the whole drain first.

Hoover D73 Dishwasher water comes comes and goes, no washing


this is a problem with the timer programme at the end this can be replaced but can be tricky to do your self the water should drain freely out of dishwasher if you feel confident enough taking the back off try finding the drain pipe because uselly these get blocked with either the food off the plates and it can get blocked with limescale if it hasnt been used for a while then the mess has buitl up and set hard if you can get the drain pipe off try running some bleach through it but make sure you clean all the bleach off before putting it back on otherwise everything will smell of bleach this is the only sollution it does sound like the drain p[ipe is blocked the dishwasher will cut off if the water raises in the bottom it does this as a safety feature to stop your kitchen from flooding it is more than likely a blocked pipe so check this properly and the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher as the water shouldnt just sit their it should be draining all the time but i would say clean all pipes properly before you do anything else hope this is some help......................

What causes mould in dishwashers , cleaned it yesterday mould was thick in it what's causing this


The mold is caused by food particles not getting fully pushed through the drain hose when the dishwasher drains. The drain hose is corrugated, and bits of food particles can sometimes collect on the ridges and in the valleys of the corrugation. Given the right circumstances, this can cause a gradual buildup inside the hose, just like cholesterol in our arteries. The presence of moisture and lack of sunlight in the hose allows mold to grow on these food particles. You will want to remove the grates at the bottom or back of your dishwasher (usually removing just a couple of screws will do it) and clean with bleach water (a cup of bleach in a gallon of water) as far down as you can reach. After you have done that, replace the grate, put the rest of the bleach water in the bottom of the dishwasher and run a regular cycle (no dishes, please!). Why not just put the bleach water in and run the cycle? Because that will kill the mold, but will not remove its build-up. You want to remove the build-up first, as far as you can reach---it's easier to remove when it's live. Then kill what's left in the drain.

If your problem was serious enough, you may want to replace your drain hose, too.

My dishwasher is leaving water in the bottom after finished. The dishes are not cleaning. Are the two related?


Yes more than likely you have a restriction in your pump/drain. you will need to remove the drain cover in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out
  • Empty the dishwasher and remove the dish racks so that you can easily locate the drain inside your dishwasher. The drain is under a drain grate, usually at the back of the dishwasher.

  • Remove the drain grate by either popping the grate out, or by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. Different types of dishwashers will have different options.

  • Use the soapy water and the toothbrush or scrub brush to clean inside the drain area and the grate.

  • Rinse the drain area with clean water. Then replace the drain grate.

  • Pour ½ cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar into the drain (in that order). The mixture will bubble. This will clean the drain and the drain hose.

  • Wait until the vinegar/baking soda mixture has stopped bubbling. Then pour 1 cup of bleach into your detergent dispenser. Replace the dish racks and run the empty dishwasher on a regular cycle. This will clean the entire machine


  • If this does not solve the issue your drain hose may be plugged or crimped and lastly your pump may be failing.

    Glasses not coming out clean on top rack


    I took the bottom apart and found that the drain had alot of debris, it would drain but there was always some residue in the clean water. The bottom rack came out and I took the one washing arm out and the cover over the screen, problem solved.

    Water does not drain from GE dishwasher.


    Remove the drain hose from under the sink to verify that there is no clog. If the dishwasher runs in the "cleaning" cycle, but won't drain, you either have a clog or a bad solenoid. All the solenoid does is opens a little door to change from cleaning cycle to drain cycle. This part is VERY EASY to change. Definitely a project for DIY. The part runs around $60 from a parts place. Check ebay if you do not need it immediately and you can save abt $30.

    Dishwasher water keeps backing up into kitchen sink then taking a long time to drain from sink


    Yes, your sink drain needs cleaning -- it's clogged. Pour some bleach into the sink drains and let it sit for a couple of hours. Flush out with boiling hot water.

    If this improves the situation but not completely solving the drain problem, try it again.

    If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the P-traps on the sink drains under the sink and clean them out.

    If that doesn't work, let me know -- we'll try something else.

    WATER DOESNT DRAIN


    I had the same problem. I took out the filter and cleaned it, scooped out as much water as I could and poured some sink unblocker into the bottom of the washer, followed by some hot water. After leaving it a while I took the plastic mesh cover off, and removed and cleaned all the bits I could (will be different on different washers). Then I put it all back together and ran a quick wash, and it worked. I did a couple more washes with it empty in case there was any cleaner still lurking. Result - one unblocked (and sparkly clean!) dishwasher. Hope this helps!

    clean out the food traps in the bottom, assuming the unit has some sort of filter.
    then run a cup of bleach in the unit with no dishes. you might need to do this once or twice.
    make sure you use fresh bleach.
    most bleach dies in strength after only 2 weeks. it will still smell like bleach to some degree, but it will have little effect. most bleach manufacturers add 'scents' to the bleach to hide the degradation characteristics of bleach.
    also, you may have a partially blocked air gap.
    to determine this, check for water remaining in the bottom of the tub after it drains. left over water will contribute to odor, and negate any sterilization you dishwasher might otherwise try to do.
    good luck
