    The top washer does not drain at all. I need to use a turkey baster to remove the water. Do I need some drain cleaner, should I try and blow out the line with air pressure?

    When I run the bottom drawer of my F&P dishwasher, the water drains into the top drawer. I am assuming that there is a valve somewhere that has stopped working. Could anyone advise how to repair this myself. I would take the whole thing apart but I would rather have instructions.



    Thanks.

Sounds like you're getting back-flow from your sink where the dishwasher drain line is plugged into. You have to make sure the DW drain hose has a vacuum break in it. Sounds hard, but it's not. Look under the sink. See where the DW drain hose plugs into your plumbing (probably at the disposal)? If it angles downward and into the cabinet to your DW, that's the problem. It's siphoning water out of your sink (along with the chopped up food from the disposal) and into your DW. The fix for this is simple. Remove the drain hose from the plumbing under the sink. Then form an upside down "U" with the drain hose and firmly attach it to a stationary object under there (I always use the water supply plumbing to the faucet for this...) using whatever you have, good duct tape, wire ties, etc. Then reconnect the end of the hose back to the plumbing and you're done! Job time= < 15 minutes.

Hotpoint LFT 228 A dishwasher intermittent draining problems. Sometimes so much water that it leaks, will drain sometimes but then water appears in the filter again, items in dishwasher sometimes come out...


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

I have a new stainless steel Samsung dishwasher. It doesn't seem to be drying properly. Dishes and dishwasher still very wet after cycle is completed.


Hello

Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo

Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

If these recommendations do not improve drying time, please contact Samsung Customer Care

My dishwasher isn't cleaning the dishes and hs become noisier when running


It will be hlepful if you mention the make and model no. of your dishwasher.

There could be several reasons for dishwasher not cleaning the dishes.

You need reasonably hot water - not available if heater is faulty
You need to have a good spray of water - not available if wash pump not working ok.
If dishwasher uses same pump for wash and drain - you could hvae a faulty impeller causing dirty water to circulate back into the dishwasher causing these to remain dirty.
The rinse aid dispenser may not be working causing dishes not to rinse clean.

I could help further if you send me make & model no.

How to remove debris from the drain holes at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, which is preventing the tub from draining all of the water completely?


I had a similar problem when my dishwasher wouldn't drain and was causing the kitchen sink to back up. I poured a little drain cleaner in the bottom of the tub (where the drain holes are) and let it stand for about 15 minutes then ran a hot rinse cycle (don't put any dishes in the dishwasher while you're doing any of this). The water still hadn't all drained but after a day or two of not using the dishwasher it drained on it's own and hasn't had any problems since. I would recommend reading your manual to make sure that using drain cleaner doesn't void any warranty you may have. Also, it's a good idea to do an empty rinse cycle at least once so that there's no chemicals getting on your dishes.

My GE Profile doesn"t drain completly, leaving about 2" of water.


Sounds like a water level sensor is on the fritz. The drain valve is probably opening if the level drops at all.

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
