I think that your air gap at the sink needs cleaning out. This is where your drain hose comes from your dishwasher to the sink and then to your disposer or your drain. Check this and you'll probably find your problem.

Whirlpool dishwasher, quiet partner 1. Does not drain, does not finish wash cycle.


ensure your dishwasher pump and drain hose are unobstructed. If your machine does not drain it will not refill with fresh rinse water and since it can't do that the cycle will never finish.

Many people don't completely rinse off food stuffs from their dishware, expecting the dishwasher to take care of it. To be honest, a dishwasher is more of a fine cleaning and disinfecting device than a pot scrubber. Because of this, grease, food debris, etc can clog the pump or drain line over time. be sure to use a good de-greasing agent regularly once the flow of water has been cleared (don't wash your dishes with it however)

Whirlpool dishwasher du920pfgq3 will not drain


If you hear the drain motor running but water not draining then there appears to be a blockage in the drain sump or hose. Assuming your kitchen drain is clear you will have to check filters inside the dishwasher and worst the drain pump.
If you do not hear drain motor running then the drain motor needs to be checked.

GE Dishwasher leaking


HI,
If you're just looking at the machine the problem is not going to be fixed..
and now the question: in witch cycle is leaking?
fill, wash or rinse?
can be...for fill...one hose from filling is broken.
for wash...mechanical seal from wash motor, the plastic manifold,one gasket.
rinse..manifold or hose for the rinse...rinse pump..
for drain..solenoid for drain, the hose for drain..
Anyway you must open the machine first of all and see.

Good luck

Check the drain hose under your sink make sure its not crushed or kinked if you have a garbage disposal the hose should go up into it at a 90 degree angle if not 180 degrees into your sink drain line

Our dishwasher smells like fish inside of it. We tried pouring in vinegar and running the rinse cycle but it hasn't helped. All of our dishes now smell like fish. Is there some place we are supposed to...


Check the main drain system, that is connected to the dish washer drain hose. There must be some clogging!

Remove that hose junction point and clean it. Try draining the hose straight into a bucket and watch for free flow.

Otherwise there should be some dead rodent inside the machine. It would have got trapped inside alive and died. Try to locate. It is a difficult job. Have a nose mask or cloth wrapped around and start the search. After you are satisfied leave the machine open with a fan ON.

Doesn't drain; glasses have film; rinses with used, soapy water


The white film problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishwasher runs though cycles but fails to drain in the final cycle


Hi...

If you dishwasher fails to drain you need to check this following:

  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
The drain hose and recirculation hoses can be responsible for leaks. The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
The timer motor regulates the length of time power is routed to each component. If the timer motor does not function properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms include sticking in a cycle, cycle times running too long, or failure of the dishwasher to start at all.
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

Good luck !!!

Won't full cycle.


Ok. Mine has started working again somewhat. I ran a rinse cycle and the pump motor started working again. I then drained it, and started a regular cycle and it's working again for now. The motor still does not sound right though.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner 2


More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.

Broken dishwahser


Check to see if there is a waste basin at the bottom of your dishwasher. Some models have them and they require regular maintenance / cleaning every 6 months or so. If one does not exist, try to purchase one of the JetDry Dishwasher cleaner and set your dishwasher to run at its hottest (usually "pots and pans" or "extra hot") for about 2 cycles. That should clean the drain of the large food particles that have accumulated in the dishwasher drainage. Should the above not provide satisfactory results, you may want to try a VERY SMALL AMOUNT of drain cleaner in the middle of an empty cycle to try and remove the debris. (CAUTION: too much drain cleaner will damage the waste bin if not rinsed properly and render your dishwasher useless..please only do this at your own risk)
