Hi Bob,

Yeah! I'm a Texan! Cool!

I'd almost bet that your dishwasher drain line is NOT clogged but simply installed incorrectly. If I'm right, some water from the sink will drain (siphon) back to your dishwasher making you believe that it's not draining properly. (BTW, I've had a thousand service calls run for just this problem, so I know of what I speak)

Look under your sink and take a gander at your dishwasher drain line... if it looks like this, it ain't right.

This allows sink/disposal water to siphon off to your DW. All you gotta do is loosen the clamp (in the pic), remove the drain line, pull as much slack as you can (without pulling to hard... like it'll break if you do that) and put a loop in it like this...

OK... after you get your loop, you'll need to tighten your hose clamp. As an extra measure of security (to keep the loop in place), secure the drain hose to your sinks water supply line.

There ya go! 15 minutes, no parts, no head-aches and you're done! Cool, huh? All you gotta do now is kick back and wait for the Cowboys pre-season! (BTW... if your drain is installed properly, write back and we'll go a little deeper into a diagnosis, OK?)

I have a hotpoint bwm129 1200 spin and I can't drain the water out of the washing machine. I have taken out the filter as it was clogged, cleaned up but the rest of the water has not come out of the d


You should be able to drain the water out by laying the drain hose down into a bowl. Does the pump function properly on final spin, that usually clears the water to allow the door to open. Parts are obtainable from Hotpoint Spares.co.uk.

Ice in bottom of freezer. What causes this?


Usually cause by a clogged drain in the back of the freezer. try to clean with hot water and make sure the water goes all the way downn to the drain pan. .
Note: all frost free refrigerator defrost a couple of time a-day; the water needs to drain into the drain-pan under the frig. check under the frig to see if the drain pan is totally dry, if dry, the drain is surely clogged.

good luck

Hotpoint Aqaurius WML520. No functions at all, motor does not spin, pump does not empty water out, none of the programs work.


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Does not drain. Water stays in the bottom.


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.

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.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, "is the drain pump running?" If you can hear the drain pump running when it tries to drain, then more than likely you have a clogged drain pump, or drain line. Here's how you can determine which one: You can check the drain line by seeing if it collapses when the pump starts to run. If it does, then you know you have a clogged line somewhere BEFORE the pump. This usually means an article of clothing has gotten between the wash basket and outer tub and is stuck in the line. If the line is full of water and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, hook up a wet/dry shop vac to the drain hose in the rear of the machine to see if you can pull water from the tub, through lines, and through the pump. If you can't, you know you probably have a clogged pump, or drain line AFTER the pump. If the drain pump does not come on, you may have a pump failure. In either case, you need to drain the water from the tub. A wet/dry shop vac does a great job at pulling water from the tub, so you don't have to bail. Let me know if this helps.
