Pump won't stop draining

We had a blockage in our kitchen sink plumbing. We had run the dishwasher, as it tried to drain the blocked pipe caused a back-up in the dishwsher. We had a plumber clear the block. However, the dishwasher keeps trying to drain water, (we think), so that it can not re-start. All we get is the pump draining. How do we get the machine to realize it is not now full of water? We have emptied all the visible standing water that had collected in the machine.

Re: Pump won't stop draining

You will almost certainly have a build up of water in the base. remove the water and retry. check to see if limit switch is not sticking or has possibly gone faulty.failing this, your board is faulty.

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

My kitchen sink blocked

You show the dishwasher yet you complain about the kitchen sink being blocked. If the dishwasher is also blocked then the blockage is below the trap on the sink. If both are blocked then the blockage is after their drain pipes meet under the floor....good luck!

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.

if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

AEG Favorit 8081 displays error F0 - there is a build up of dirty water which has not drained way. I syphoned all the water away and after a while the dishwasher started to work again - but then the...

Hello. When the water does not completely drain away, it usually means that there is a partial blockage in one of these areas:

1. The small drain pump located under the tub, accessable by removing the lower front panel.
2. The drain line going from the DW pump to the plumbing under the kitchen sink.
3. The garbage disposal, or the trap under the sink.

Check these out and you will find a chunk of bone, or glass or some other debris which is partially blocking the draining action. J.

Bad smell coming from bottom - water doesn't completely drain out

Make sure the drain hose is not blocked or pinched.Also check where it drains into your sink pipeing to be sure food isnt blocking the drain way.
Its eather the drainage path is blocked or the pump stoped pumping.
Also, the drain hose must be installed so as to have a high spot higher than the sink drain or the water from your sink will be able to "run down hill" or drain into your dishwasher. Take a look and see!

also It sounds like your dishwasher does not have an air gap. Newer dishwashers come with an air gap installed, but they can be taken out. A quick fix for this is to:

Check the drain line under the kitchen sink. The drain line is supposed to run from the bottom of the cabinet, and run as high in the cabinet as you can get, (up to the bottom of the counter top) then connect the drain. This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher, and garbage disposal.

Water remains in bottom, water pump out?

It sounds like one of two possibilities here.

The most likely is a blockage somewhere between the drain pump and the drain in the house (under the sink).

Places to look for this would be an air gap or the fitting where the drain hose connects to the house plumbing. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off of the house pipe under the sink, run that hose into a bucket and see how it drains then. If it is poor then follow back toward the dishwasher until you find the next junction or fitting. If you are sure all these are clear and still not draining, you will most likely need a new drain solenoid.

Won't drain

hello. i can help you. remove the lower panel and in there you will see the drain hose going from a little pump near the floor upwards and ultimately connected to your plumbing under the sink. Disconnect it at both ends and examine it for a blockage. Also, remove the little pump and look in it for a chunk of glass or something else that partially blocks it. finally check out the sink trap and or the garbage disposal [if u use one] still looking for a blocked pipe.

Dishwasher will not drain water out

if plumbed in under the sink, check the spigot the drain hose goes to is not blocked - a common problem. if on drain you should be able to hear the drain pump working. if you hear a faint humming noise instead, then there is probably a foreign object stuck in pump. also check for blockage in the drain hose
