The dish draw doesn't seem to drain out the water

We have a twin unit and the top one doesn't seem to be draining the water after the cycle has been complete. if you put another wash on it fills up more. I have tried putting a dishwasher clearer solution through it but still no change

    The bottom drawer on our dish washer will not drain. I have found water in the bottom under the drawer,and the F1 code wont stop blinking. I am drying it out now but the bottom drawer still has water in it so I am guessing that I have a clogged drain hose. How do I remove the bottom drawer to clean my drain hose?

Fisher and paykel dish draw not draining


If the problem is with both drawers, then most likely kitchen side drain is blocked. But if only one drawer, then need to clean filter and drain sump at base or if pump motor is not running then replace the pump rotor.

Wont do drain cycle,goes back to wash cycle


check the drain hose and the kitchen sink drain outlet are clear.
It is possible the soil sensor is faulty and is drawing more water thinking the dishes are still dirty. Check if you hear the drain pump operate briefly during wash cycle.

Not washing dishes


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Dirty dishes post cycle are a sign of draining problems however this is a list of what it could be.

1. A partially clogged drain
2. The timer motor is not functioning properly
3. A broken or worn pump impeller

Here is what you need to do:

Check your entire drain system. Start at the final outlet and work your way backward to the motor pump connection on the dishwasher.

Suspected areas are.

a. The sink connection outlet is clogged (this can be inside a garbage disposal.

b. The air-gap is clogged in the very top part of the air-gap (Usually located on the back of the sink and is around 3 inches tall) Remove the cover, unscrew the top nut and check under the horse shoe bend inside the plastic top for obstructions. Clean as needed)

c. There is debris on top of the the motor pump housing blocking the inlet drain. (This would be inside the housing of the lower wash arm on the very bottom)

d. The motor pump outlet drain port is partially blocked. (only accessable from the motor pump exit hole after drain hose removal.)

A partially blocked inlet tub drain to the motor pump would also explain why the lower part of the dishes are not getting clean. Additionally you would have spotted dishes post cycle.

When the drain is partially blocked some models use the float level switch in the tub to control the advancement of the timer. If the water does not drain the motor pump continues to run and run and the cycle does not advance until the tub is drained and the float switch senses same. i.e extended cycle

One more thing to check is the lower wash arm holes for debris or obstructions.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Check the water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible.

This would have happened as the dishwasher was overloaded with more than prescribed number of dishes. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. As the dishwasher is not draining properly, this issue is related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Water seems to be hot enough, drains properly, arnms not blocked, dishes not being cleaned at end of cycle. Almost seems like it is skipping the wash cycle.


Hi smiller8565,
There is 3 basic problems that will cause a dishwasher to not clean the dishes. You can check these problems and see if any will solve your problems.
1: If there is water or suds left in the dishwasher after the cycle is complete. This will cause dirty water to be used in the final rinse and the dishes will not get clean.
2: The pump that supplies water to the spray arms is jammed or defective and unable to pump the water properly, thus causing the dishes to remain dirty.
3: Timer, the timer is not allowing the machine to work in the wash cycle.
The solutions for these 3 are as follows.
1: check the drain line for blockage, if you have a disposal make sure it is clear and water flows down the drain properly. If you have suds left in the dishwasher, clean them out and run a couple cycles with not detergent to rinse away the old suds.
2: Look down in the bottom for any obstructions in the pump. Popcorn seeds, broken glass, etc.
3: If the unit is skipping the wash cycle you will most likely need a new timer or control assembly.
Good luck and I really hope this will Fix Ya
Mike
