    our dishwasher will not drain out occasionally. The repair man came and "touched" something underneath it and it began working again. He would not tell us what he did. Literally he took 5 to 10 minutes. . . . Any suggestions?

    Our GE dishwasher has been working fine. Just lately it goes thru all the cycles OK, but when it's all done, it still has water left in the bottom of the dishwasher. Apparently it is draining, but not completely.

    I have a GE dishwasher where the water at the bottom is not draining fully. I have checked the strainer, nothing seems to be clogged there. Please suggest a solution.

I was having the same problem with water sitting at the bottom of my dish washer. I had recently installed a new garbage disposal when the problem started. You need to make sure that you knock out the inlet valve where the disposal drain line hooks up. If you have never hooked up a washer to your disposal, this piece will be in place. Stick a flat head screwdriver in where the drain hooks up and hit it with a hammer and the small plastic circle will pop out. The washer does not use any water when that is blocked and therefore will leave the old water to turn rancid...I hope this helps!

Had a similar problem, my solution was as simple as a kinked drain hose when we installed the dishwasher into our new house. Good luck.

Our Frigidaire has not been draining completely. After I fussed around looking for answers, my wife read the manual and fixed it. She completely cleaned the inside out and the vent on the sink was really dirty and plugged. Now it works fine.

If you take the toe panels off and look at the motor you will see the discharge anti-siphon tube there with the drain hose attached. That tube is the discharge major restriction point. Be careful not to destroy the anti-siphon valve, by pulling the bale, remove it, a flapper valve. If you can't see through the tube you have found the problem. Punch a screwdriver into it to dislodge the crap and clean it up. Put the anti-siphon valve back in as found and check it out. Be careful, when you remove the tube , water will come out of the pump assembly. If you remove the hose be sure to watch for water there also.

Dishwasher Problems - Water will not drain out

SOURCE: My Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't drain completely

Drain line/air gap
A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump
Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.


Timer
Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Frigidaire Dishwasher model FGBD2431KW will not completely drain after wash cycle. What might cause this?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining 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. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water didnt drain from frigidaire dishwasher model FDB989GFC


Hello!

If your dishwasher does you need to check all this parts:

1. Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
The drain hose and recirculation hoses can be responsible for leaks. The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.
2. Unjam the motor
3. Unjam the pump
4. Check the drain valve
5. Check the drive belt
6. Test the timer motor
If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

Water left in the bottom of dishwasher after cycle was complete


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

Brand New overflows PLD4555RFC3


If this is new construction or a new disposal, check the hose that drains from the dishwasher to the disposal - the installer may have forgotten to remove the plug when they connected the hose.
