Dishwasher not pumping waste water ????

OK...Helping a friend out....Brand new dishwasher installed a year ago and will not pump out waste water. Here is the funny part...It never worked from day one and she never called service man back. So now out of warranty. Pump is running and will pump water into a bucket, so no clogged lines. when I attach to garbage disposal it will not pump water up hill. Any thoughts ?????

disassemble the top of the dishwasher pump, remove the bottom spray arm and remove the screws on the top of the pump housing this will get you started

SOURCE: dishwasher will not pump water out.

you need to get a tester to the drain pump terminals. if power is there on drain cycle, then remove pump and check. if pump runs or is not faulty, check the area close to the pump for blockage

SOURCE: bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher.

Seems you answered your own question here. You need to make an air gap in the drain hose - take as much slack as possible and make a curve (upside down U) under you sink as high as you can go. Make sure you clip ot to back of the cabinet to stabilize it. Good luck

SOURCE: GE diswasher GSD4020Z02BB doesn't completely drain

This is exactly what happened to me and I paid the repair man. Learn from me. Open dishwasher, unscrew screen along back of dishwasher. Piston assembly should be right there. Part is WD24X10018. GE will charge you $17 plus labor. Can buy it on-line for around $12. Takes about two minutes to fix.

So frustrated - LG dishwasher washes 5 minutes then shows OE code - have cleaned drains, sump pump, out let pipes. Still doing it. ONly 9 months old..... My old dishwasher worked for 10 years.......


Hi there Diane OE on your display relates to the water draining system (water is not pumped away). the diashwasher is not seeing the water drain away. Dishwashers start by draining before they take on fresh water. Start your dishwasher and listen for a pumping noise from the waste pump if you dont hear any noise it may be the pump is blocked or faulty. please advise if this helps kind regards gary.

I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area,...


Ensure the outlet pipe is below the level of your floor and straight to a drain or plumbed into the waste pipe directly with no chance of syphoning from standing water in your drain/waste pipe.

Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes. Dishwasher


One possibility is that there is collection of waste inside the drain pump and filter. If you have cleaned these parts as per instructions in the user guide and there is no difference, then try using a dishwasher cleaner which is available as a liquid in a special dispenser for one off use in an empty dishwasher. This is available in the supermarket.

Hard to know what the plumbing changes were done, but if the dishwasher was taken out and put back in then make sure the drain hose is connected at the correct height. The pump might be working harder than previously which would leave the muck behind.

Why wont dishwasher drain?


The 'drain hose' must placed into the sink and be free of kinks and obstruction. There is a pump that is supposed to pump the water out through the drain hose into the sink. If that pump does not activate, no water will be pumped out. I suggest yo have a repair technician trouble shoot and fit it.

Water Won't drain fro the dishwasher model Blanco bfdw650s


If you "Lower" the hose to the bucket and it "drains" you are just using gravity to remove the water. The pump may be helping a little but if you raise the hose up and the water stops coming out, it's a good indication that the pump is bad. Unless the place you are attaching the hose to is plugged up, you need a new pump or a new impellor. Since the motor is good, try to get a replacement impellor, that the thing that moves the water. One other thing, you did say how well it washes the dishes? If the impellor is bad, it probably doesn't.

Plastic Pieces


It sounds like the pieces of plastic are coming from the disintegration of the main pump impeller.

I've never heard of this problem, so I would say it is not common.

LG Dishwasher


ok. our machine has done this for 6 months or so, it was ok for the 1st 6 months. i have checked and cleaned and unblocked and gone bloody crazy. today i found the fault and fixed quickly.

the installer stuffed up. the waster water hose must head up and be fixed just under your bench top, then come down hill to your exit/spiggot/drain attachment.

ours was just lying more or less at floor level coming up to the spiggot. so whenever the waste water pump switched off, water would run back into the machine, hence the OE error, and also dirty water with food would then get chucked around it what should have been a clean rinse.

a diagram of the waste water house and how it should be done is in the manual.

i just about blew $1500 on a new machine !!
