Water keeps coming back into dishwasher after cycle is done

The dishwasher drains but after it is done, somehow water starts seeping back up into the bottom of the dishwasher. i run the drain cycle again to clear it but after 30 minutes or so there's about an inch of water again. i turned off the water to the dishwasher but it still happens. ????

    Thanks Vic, I will readjust the hose because it's been a long time since I checked it and this problem just started a couple of days ago. I will let you know if it worked.

Hi, If the drain hose is attached under the sink, make sure that the drain hose is looped higher then the outlet it is attached to.
Most model will hold a small amount of water after draining to keep the seals moist.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

    You are welcome. If not, get me a model # and I can look this up to see if there is a check valve of any kind that might be bad.

I have a F& P Nautilus dishwasher FP 920 CEM414387 keeps coming up with u-1 and the dishwasher stops. What can it be?


Hi, U-i is a user fault which means somehow the either the water was turned off, the drawer while filling was draining at the same time, water did not enter the drawer within 3 minutes of start, or you had excessive foaming.
Is the water to the drawer on? Was there suds in the drawer?
Hit the power button far left on the control, open and close drawer. Run a rinse only cycle and see if it fills like normal, if not get back to me and I can walk you thought a test through the control to check it.
Good Luck

Water is not draining after wash. What might be the cause?


  1. Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit ( there are others, this is just an example )
  2. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  3. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  4. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  5. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
  6. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
  7. Check pump impeller for damage.
  8. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Dishwasher stops after it starts


Your dishwasher is probably draining during the wash cycle. This is usually the result of a worn out diverter valve.

Smell??


Check to make sure that the drain hose loops as high as possible before coming back down to the disposer or branch tailpiece drain. If the drain hose just goes straight up to the drain connection, dirty water can seep back into the dishwasher.

Bosch dishwasher model #shu33A


your dirty water backed up into the washer (which it shouldn't do) and probably clogged something in there,..i would recommend getting it flushed out somehow, not sure how,.....next time, your washer drain hose should go up under the sink as high as possible and then back down to drain,....this settup makes it hard for drain water to go back into washer,....it's instructed in any dishwasher manual
