SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher won't drain? Model#DU5000xw

When it is suppose to be draining, do you hear the pump running.
If not, then the pump or controller/timer is bad. If the controller is sending power to the pump and the pump doesn't run, it's the pump. If no power is getting to the pump, then the controller is bad.
You'll need a voltmeter and know-how to diagnose this electrical problem. This is high-voltage power with water in the area. So please don't try to use a voltmeter unless you are confident of your skills.

If you do hear the pump, then the drain valve (solenoid) is the problem.

The solenoid valve and the pump are all underneath the unit. Accessibility from the front, bottom panel.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

SOURCE: dishwasher washes dishes but does not drain...I

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are 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.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. 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 rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Rylee

How do I replace a check valve in Whirlpool dishwasher model #WDT710PAYM5


The drain check valve is in the first part on your drain hose, the part attached to the drain pump. You have to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet . you will see the drain hose on the left side of the dishwasher. It is a whitish opaque plastic tube. Detach it from the pump and from the drain extension, a pan may be needed to catch remaining water. Carefully remove the loop from the plastic fill channel. Reinstall in the reverse order

There should be a check valve in the drain hose to prevent that.
Is the sink drain clogged?

DU801 is not the complete model number. Find the complete model number. It should be just inside the door on the right side of the tub.
Go to sears parts direct. And enter your model number and find the part number for the drain hose of your dishwasher. The number in the video may be the correct one.

Whirlpool dishwasher model:DU800 CWDQ5 has very little and slow drain all other functions work great


Check the drain hose for kinks. If not kinked you will have to find the blockage. Look in areas where the hose has smaller diameter first.
