Dishwasher will not drain the water

There is water in the bottom of my dishwasher after its done with its cycle, I have to bail the water out with a cup.

    This has occurred from the very first time the appliance was used. My nephew is a regional manager for Sear's Appliances and says the problem is because water is siphoning back into the machine. I do not know where to obtain an anti-siphoning device. Does anyone know where I might purchase this item? It would be installed in the discharge hose, not in the 1 1/2 inch sink drain, itself. Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    Besides the water pump having a clog what else could be causing my dishwasher to not drain water after washing?

Chances are that something is plugging up your little waste water pump. Easy fix. Just open up the bottom panel on the lower front of the machine. You will see the drain hose with a little pump attached at one end and the other end heading out of the space and into your sink space. Just disconnect the hose and then unscrew the little pump. you are looking to remove a piece of glass, or bone or some other obstruction and remove it.

I've been having isses with my Miele Incognito dishwasher. Water comes into the unit but cycle won't start. Technician on the phone said to take an 8mm wrench and try to loosen the circulting


your circulation pump is stuck. there is nothing you can do with a wrench, your tech is mistaken. the only thing you can do is to drain all the water out. after the drain cycle, stop the machine and turn it off. remove the triple filter in the bottom, and bail as much water out as possible. soak it up with a sponge or paper towels etc. now put a quart of water in the microwave and heat it to boiling. pour the hot water down in the sump area of the dishwasher and let it sit for 10 mins. try to start a cycle after 10 mins. ( you can leave the filter out for now) if it works, you are done and you just saved 800 dollars. if not, try that proceedure 3 more times in a row. if it still does not work after 3 times, you will probably have to replace the circulation pump.

Miele dishwasher finishes the cycle with water in the bottom and the dishes not clean


In the bottom of the dishwasher you have a filter. under the filter is a non return valve. it is a one way valve that keeps the dirty drain water from draining back into the dishwasher. if it is dirty or broken, the dirty water that your machine drains out, is running right back in as soon as the drain pump shuts off. this will keep happening and your dishwasher will just spray the dirty water back on the dishes over and over again.

to get to it, you will need to get the water out of the machine. if you have a wet dry shop vac use that. if not, you can bail it out with a cup, and soak the rest up with a sponge. remove the lower spray arm by pulling it up. remove the filter by pulling the handle in the direction of the arrow. lift the filter out of the way. get the rest of the water out of the sump. on the left side of the sump, you will see a silver wire bail holding the non return valve in. flip the bail towards the center of the sump. pull up and out on the non return valve. it has a rubber seal and a stainless steel ball inside. any debris between the seal and the ball will keep the valve from closing all the way, and allow the water to drain back. you can order a replacement if needed, directly from miele. 1800 842 7231.

It has standing water in it and will not drain or run a new cycle


Mine does this from time to time. If you have your manual, take a look at how to clean out the drain. If not, carefully turn the traps on the bottom, lift out the rectangular screen and the two plastic traps one at a time. Bail out your dishwasher and drain as far as you can,using a spoon, ladle or measuring cup to drain the trap. Once you have done that, there should be a small semi circle of plastic tubing on the bottom left. Pull that out carefully. Reach back and dislodge anything in the plastic rotary piece you can feel behind that with your fingers. Take out any food remants, etc. that might be blocking the drain. Put back to gether and see if it drains. I've had to do this about 8 times over the last 2 years with mine but it always works afterwards. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it continues to work!

Water keeps coming back into dishwasher after cycle is done


Hi, If the drain hose is attached under the sink, make sure that the drain hose is looped higher then the outlet it is attached to.
Most model will hold a small amount of water after draining to keep the seals moist.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Error code e4 on kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher too much inlet wate


HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

My dishwasher won't drain


It is possible that it ran thru the entire cycle but was unable to drain teh waste water ( usually the result of a clogged filter screen in the bottom of your dishwasher).. I suggest you either hand bail the water out and look for the drain filter screen or check where the drain hose is hooked up under your sink and possibly into the side of a garbage disposal..That could be clogged up too... Hope that helps...
