Do you have a water softener installed in your home and is the water coming to the dishwasher at least 120F? I have some advice you can read about on dishwashers but it really sounds like a water temperature is.

How do I unplug a drain if I do not have an air gap


Is it a plugged problem or is the drain solenoid maybe not working. Do you hear a click when it reaches drain cycle. If not the drain valve or wiring or possibly even the timer is defective. VERY seldom that a drain hose would plug up. Make sue the hose is not kinked also. You may have plugged house plumbing under the sink or etc also.

Dishwasher won't drain. (Kenmore 3380957Rev A) It's been not draining that well for a couple of months, but then a couple of weeks ago, it just won't let the last inch of water out. --I can't see in...


The problem could be the pump, the drain hose or the timer. It will not drain if left to sit. The thing to try first is to put a cup of white vinegar in the machine and let it wash. This may remove sludge or scale blocking the strainer. 2nd take the hose loose at the sink drain and see if it is half clogged with grease or food. Check the hose and the nipple. Last, if it does not work take the bottom off the dishwasher. 4 screws and a plate. look for the pump and see if the hoses are clear. Sears will sell you a manual to repair and test this machine at its Parts Central on line

take a shop vac and attach it to the ond of the drain hose to remove the water and if you are checking the drain pump then it has to be pulled out from under the cabinet.
if the unit is less than a year old just set it up for service it will not cost you anything

Maytag Dishwasher Model DWU9200BAB


Do you have an air gap between the disposal and the dishwasher? If not required raise the hose and as high as you can. It must be above the water level in the sink. Try attaching it to the underside of the counter. At some point the hose should be above 32 inches. It the problem is with the dishwasher itself. Don't fix, replace. They are not really designed to last over 10 years. The new ones , especially in the last year or two are a BIG improvement over any older one. So quiet you can't tell they are even running, they clean so much better and are much more energy efficient. Stainless steel interiors are just a fad. The plastic tubs are actually less likely to leak and are by there nature more quiet.
