Where is the problem. Is it the DW or the house drain? If it is the DW, here are some steps to follow. Use your brain thinking thing to help you too.

Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened?

1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Neff Dishwasher won't drain

I've had this problem a couple of times with my dishwasher. In both cases, the cause was a shard of broken glass that had managed to get past the filters and jam itself underneath the impellor. Hard to see, but easy to fix. First ladle out the water.
Pull off the lower rotor arm, unscrew the filter and take out the filter bowl, tray and cylindrical filter. Get as much water as you can out of the filter cavity.
Then, using a Torx-20 driver, remove the screw holding the impellor cover and lift the cover off. (this is the small bit of plastic at the left end of the filter cavity.) Check whether the impellor can rotate freely by spinning it with your finger several times - if it jams or grinds, then there's probably something jammed under it. (It may seem to be fine at first, so do check thoroughly, as any debris can move around with the water flow and only jam occasionally) You may have to use a cocktail stick or similar to poke out anything that's stuck underneath.
Glass is a particular problem, since it's almost impossible to see when there's any water around (it's easy to cut yourself too!)

Anyway, that's worked twice for me now - and I didn't have to even move the machine out of its cupboard to fix it.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: bEEBING CONSTANTLY ADG7460 WHIRLPOOL NOT DRAINING

This dishwasher being only seven weeks old I suggest you contact the store where you bought this unit and tell them to book a service call and send a technition out to solve this,the reason I am suggesting this is that the unit is under guarentee and if you try to repair it will void any guarentee or warrentee that is on the machine.If you do work on it and something big and expensive goes wrong the store(manufacturer) will not honor there guarentee when they see that you worked on it so better to be safe than sorry.If you do not come right with them let me know and we can see what we can do from there.

Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.


possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher Model # DU8000XX0 works perfectly until it is time to drain. When draining all the water comes gushing out the air gap on the counter. Pease help!


Hello,
The problem is that the dishwasher discharges the water very rapidly...
Your drain pipe is either too small or partially plugged to the point that the water cannot get away fast enough...
You probably need to have the drain pipe cleaned, or aget some drain cleaner to put down it.

Blocked dishwasher drain


First can you hear the drain pump running when the machine goes into drain cycle?
If you can then what you can do is pull the dishwasher forward and locate where the drain pipe (cyphon) is connected on the back of the machine,this is normally connected to a short plastic tube via a hose clamp.Loosen this and remove the pipe shove a hose down it and clear,replace and test it should work.Just a few pionters when a unit is not draining,first check in the botoom inside of the machine there is a filter remove and ensure this free from obstuction,also while the filter is of visually and with your hand feel for any obstruction in the machine where the filter goes.
Give this a try and let me know if this helped if it does not we can go to the next step.
