Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by remove back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. remote the hose and filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

F & S GWL15 would not drain. Replaced pump & it drained for a while. Removed diverter, found a dime & some lint, cleaned it out and installed it. Still would not drain, water is on floor, do not see leak....

Have you tried reverse flushing the drain hose?
If you can get the outlet/drain hose to the washtub cold tap
wrap a towel around the hose and tap to stop water going everywhere whilst slowly turning up the water pressure
from the tap.
(Any leaks STOP and check your hose clamps/connections are all tight.)
Water should now be flowing into the machine bowl, and
hopefully turned the pump, and cleared any blockages.

Hope it helps

It runs over

First of all, close the door and press Cancel. (Or if your dishwasher has the controls that are hidden under your counter ledge when you close the door, then press Cancel first and then close the door. Do you hear anything? Is the drain pump trying to run? If so, then start at your garbage disposal and work backwards. If you got a new garbage disposal installed, make sure that you (or the installer) remembered to knock out the hard-plastic plug at the end of the dishwasher connector port. Also make sure you don't have a clog right there. If that's okay, then check the drain hose (or air-break, if you have one) for clogs. If that's okay, then the next most likely suspect is the drain pump, but it may not be bad; there could just be something hard (a foreign piece of plastic or glass) stuck in the check valve or stuck in the pump itself that is keeping the impeller from turning. In either case you will have to remove the drain pump to fix or replace it. But first either siphon the water out of the sump area or use a wet vac to suck out the water from the sump area. Then you can remove the end of the drain hose and check there. If that's okay, you can remove the drain pump by finding and pressing on the release button or lever, and turning it 1/8 turn counter-clockwise, If there's an obstruction, you will find it now. If no obstruction, then replace the drain pump.

Please. Tell. Me how to change out, water pump.

Before we start make sure the car's engine is cold and the car is located on level ground with the parking brake set, also make sure you are wearing protective gloves, eyewear and clothing.
Step 1. First release the hood latch cable located under the dash on the drivers side on most cars, then disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Note: radio presets will be lost. So make a note of them to re-enter them after the job is complete.
Step 2. Next, raise the car to gain access to the underside of the car. Always lift the vehicle according to the vehicle's manufacturers instructions. Use jack stands to secure the automobile.
Step 3. Remove plastic covers under the engine compartment to gain access to the radiator drain valve or lower radiator hose. Position a coolant drain pan under the radiator to catch the engine coolant. Loosen the drain valve or lower radiator hose the release the coolant. Once this process is complete move to the topside of the engine compartment.
Step 4. Remove any plastic covers and shields to gain access to the main pulley to water pump bolts. Loosen these bolts two turns but do not remove them. Next remove the main drive belt. On some models you may need to remove the upper radiator hose and brackets to gain access.
Step 5. Now, remove any obstructing brackets or accessories needed to remove the water pump mounting bolts. Remove the water pump mounting bolts. Use the leverage bar and carefully pry up on the snout of the pump, this will break the gasket seal and allow the pump to be removed.
Step 6. Once the pump has been removed use the gasket cleaner to remove any excessive gasket material or old sealer. The gasket sealing surface needs to be as clean as possible to ensure a good seal for the new water pump gasket.
Step 7. Before installing the new water pump match the old part to the new part, make sure the bolt holes and mounting flanges are exactly the same. Once confirmed that in fact we do have the right part install the water pump gasket. Some water pumps require gasket sealer while others do not. Typically water pump that uses an "o" ring seal do not need gasket sealer.
Step 8. Next, reinstall the water pump and hold it in place by installing one or two mounting bolts tightened by hand. Next, install the remainder of the mounting bolts, Tighten the mounting bolts evenly and to the recommended torque tightness.
Step 9. Once he new pump is on and secured reinstall all mounting brackets and hoses.
Step 10. Reinstall the main cooling fan or water pump drive pulley.
Step 11. Install fan shroud and plastic valances as needed.
Step 12. Now reinstall the serpentine belt, make sure the belt is aligned with the pulley groves.
Step 13. Reinstall the upper radiator hose and double check all bolts and cooling hose connections.
Step 14. Remove the radiator cap and pour the recommended coolant mixture until full.
Step 15. Start the engine and allow to idle, Keep adding coolant as needed until the engine is running at operating temperature. You will know the engine is at operating temperature because you will able to notice coolant moving inside the radiator and the radiator will get hot. You can also reference the engine temperature gauge. Reinstall the radiator cap and check the level of the coolant reservoir, add if needed. Also after the engine has been running for a few hours allow the engine to cool completely and recheck the engine coolant level.
It is a good idea once the job is done to inspect the under carriage for leaks and the engine compartment for funny noises to ensue the job it done correctly.

How do you drain the spa?

There is probably a drain valve somewhere near the control panel ... forgetabout it ... too slow.

Best way is to get a small pump and pump it away. Next best is wet dry (shop vac). My favorite is siphon ... dont have to buy anything or drag anything out ... only a hose. By the time my water is out ... I have had time to do the necessary surface cleaning and waxing.

My new dishwasher wont drain

There's a few things you can look into that won't cost you any money.

First, manually remove as much water as possible and then check the sump area for paper or any other large object clogging the drain. A cup or so of water in the sump area of your dishwasher is normal and it is there to prevent the seals from drying out. The dishwasher will pump this old water out before beginning to wash.

Make sure the door is properly latched as the pump will not drain if the door is not latched properly.

Check the belt, drain line, air gap, drain valve and solenoid assembly, the motor, and the pump. If your dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump, and it has broken or come off the pulley, replace it.

If you have recently installed a garbage disposer in your home, make sure that the drain plug on the disposer has been removed. It's just a little plastic piece that blocks the hole where you hook the dishwasher drain hose. If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposer, you need to run the garbage disposer before you run the dishwasher to make sure that the drain is clear.

There is a drain hose between the drain valve or pump and the garbage disposal or drain line. If an obstruction has blocked this, then your dishwasher won't drain. The drain hose is connected by clamps to the drain valve and the disposer or drain pipe. Remove it and visually inspect it for a clog or a kink. Try to remove any debris. If it is in good condition, just put it back on, and if not, purchase a new one to install.

If you don't have an air gap in the drain line, at least use a high drain loop. Making a large loop about 18" off the ground with the drain line can prevent any back flow into the dishwasher from the sink.

If you have one, the air gap will be located on top of the sink. The air gap is there to prevent any siphoning of standing water from the sink. When your dishwasher drains, the air gap diaphragm will form a seal and allow the water to drain properly. If the diaphragm in the air gap is faulty, it’s possible that water can leak onto the cabinet and into the sink area. When this happens, then the air gap must be replaced.

Like the inlet valve, there is also a drain valve on most models. When no power goes to the drain valve it remains closed and prevents water from leaving the machine. When the valve receives power during the drain cycle, the solenoid opens and allows the water to leave the machine. If your drain hose is attached directly to the pump, you don't have a drain valve. The motor simply reverses and the pump sends the water in the opposite direction, which is out of the machine.

If the motor doesn’t turn or work properly, the dishwasher may not drain. Make sure you have power to the unit. If you notice that the motor hums but won't turn, it could be seized, and you probably need to replace it.

if you need to buy any parts, I have had alot of help from
Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you’ll need to open the pump and remove any debris buildup. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher and pushes the water from the dishwasher.

Whirlpool DUL200PKQ1 dishwasher won't drain. There is nothing blocking the drain and I've installed a new chopper-impeller kit. What's next?

Hello there
during the extraction cycle their is a drain solonoid valve that is supposed to open and let the water out, and the extraction pump will pump it out, so knowing this first when the unit gets to the point where it is supposed to drain listen carfully and see if you hear any clicking and if so good the solonoid is getting power next listen and see if you can hear the pump starts to hum if it does i would have to suggest that the solonoid is probably bad solonoid valves normally fail in the closed position which will not let any water pass thru it ok ?

Check the following to address this issue--

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Water pump

Put a drain pan under the radiator drain pet ****.Drain the rad COLD. Loosen,but do net remove the four waterpump pulley bolts.Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the water pump pulley now. Put the drain pan on the floor under the water pump. Take off the bypass hose if equipped.Undo the bolts securing the water pump. Make sure you remove ALL the bolts.With a soft hammer tap the front of the pump until it separates from the block. Remember too much force means that a bolt is likely still installed. Once the pump is off remove all traces of gasket from the block.Go to the parts store and purchase the new pump. It is a good idea to take the old one too just in case they need to compare it ,or, there is a core charge on the old unit. You will get ir back right away if you have it with you. Get a small tube of contact cement as well and use it lightly to secure the gasket to the water pump.This will hold the gasket to the pump and make sure the gasket come off with the pump if you ever change it again.Reverse the procedure to install it.Close the rad petcock. Refill the coolant ,with new, making sure the air bleeder is loosend. Fill up rad until you get no more air from the bleeder.After that, put the drain pan under the rad and run the car. Let the coolant expand and push out the remaining air.Once the car is up to temperature fill the rad and put the rad cap on. Fill the bottle to the normal level and recheck it the next day and add as necessary.
