Question about Dishwashers

3 Answers

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot and asking them for another one just like the one I broke TWICE! Yikes Ken

    Thank you so much for your reply. I have used the original equipment twice now and because of the distance from the dishwasher to the drain I run out of hose before a connection can be made. If I leave the hose in the position it was meant to go it is too short. If I bring it under the dishwasher it is long enough to reach but breaks easily. If I install it in it's correct position I need some way of extending it to the drain. Any suggestions?

Maytag dishwasher won't drain


Drainage problem of some sort is usually the cause. Could be blockage before your drain pump, in your drain pump, or in your drain hose. One possibility is that you just installed a garbage disposal and forgot to remove the "knock-out" plug for the dishwasher drain line. Another cause can be that you have not looped your dishwasher drainline under your sink and water from your sink is flowing back into you dishwasher. You must attach your dishwasher drain line under your sink so it is higher then your sink drain lines, creating a trap for your dishwasher. Your drain sump could be plugged, not letting the water get to your drain pump easily. This is caused by not getting loose or hard debris off your dishes before putting them in the unit. Also make sure your drain pump is getting the right voltage when it is supposed to.God bless youfa618d8b-d0fd-412a-b0d5-a88d44bf89d3.giffb1320dc-7bec-4cb0-98ed-c24cf54e5e3b.jpg

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

I have a Maytag DWU9200AAX dishwasher and it needs to be replaced. I tried pulling it out to check whether it is electrically hard wired or plugged in. I was able to get it out only 6 inches and now it...


I would anticipate it is hard wired, most older machines are. the power wire comes to a box, usually near the right front of the under unit area.
In order to remove the machine: Unscrew supports from the counter underside. TURN OFF POWER, disconnect the wires from the j box on the machine, turn off the water, and relieve the pressure, and disconnect the hose, often at the left front area of the machine. Release the drain hose from where it connects to the sink drain. Feed hoses as you pull the machine.

How to remove waste hose from machine?


1 Turn off the circuit breaker that controls the dishwasher.
2 Open the dishwasher door. Locate the two small screws holding the bottom valance trim piece. Remove the screws and the valance, revealing the lower pump assembly and drain-hose connection.
3 Remove the hose clamp. Disconnect the drain line by pulling the hose.
4 Find the other end of the drain line under the sink; it is connected to the drain tail piece or the garbage disposal. Remove the hose clamp and disconnect the drain line. The dishwasher drain hose is now disconnected at both ends.
5 Pull the dishwasher drain hose into the sink base through the hole between the dishwasher and the sink base.
6 Take the dishwasher drain hose outside or to a wash sink. Run hot water through the line to clean and unclog it. When you see water running freely through the hose, then it is clean. If the hose cannot be cleaned, replace it with a new drain hose of the same size and length.
7 Feed the clean dishwasher drain hose back to its original configuration. Reconnect both hose clamps. Reinstall the valance, turn on the circuit breaker and test-run the dishwasher.

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

I have a Maytag Quietseries300, not draining


You can, but I would pull the drain hose out from under the sink and try draining the machine into a bucket. I have found a lot of machines that pass larger items through the drain that end up getting caught right at the drain hook up. If you run the drain hose into a bucket it should run freely on pump out. If not then you may very well have a bad drain pump in the dishwasher, or at least something caught inside of it.

After washing dishes in the kitchen sink, water fills up and stands in the dishwasher and drains only after running the dishwasher


Hi, There is a drain hose under the sink that goes to the dishwasher. Make sure that hose is raised up higher then the drain pipe for you sink. It is just draining into the dishwasher because the drain hose is to low.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dishwasher fills with water when running faucet


The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.
