SOURCE: washer not draining all the way

OK, so I had no luck finding any information on the WSXH208A. I knew this problem was possibly related to a clogged filter because of the responses related to other machines, but where the heck is the filter on this model...not easily found. Finally, after some persistence, I found it. The filter is inside the black rubber piece that attaches the drum to the pump. It is a small clear plastice piece with holes in it located inside the black rubber piece. Detach the black rubber piece from it's 3 connections...1 to the bottom of the drum (unscrew the tightening screw at the top metal wire to loosen the connection), 1 connection to the pump and one other connection coming from the top somewher (both of these are connected with press-grip clasp type things). Take the entire black rubber piece out (make sure to have plenty of towels layed out and a pan to catch the water if you can. My pan didn't catch much, but the towels soaked it up anyway. Pull the filter out from inside the black rubber piece once disconnected. I actually had a dollar bill wrapped around the inside of my filter, completely blocking it. Once the filter is cleared, put everything back together. Make sure all connections are on tight to prevent any leaks. Hope this works for you...I was happy to fix it myself and avoid the costly repair-man!

You need to access the hose connected to the drain pump, undo the hose and unblock it.

Here all schematics for your model.

SOURCE: WHen draining it over flows the exist pipe.

The drain pipe in the house may not have a local vent pipe to relieve sewer air pressure or the pipe diameter needs to be increased. I have found that if the hose end is tied into the house drain instead of just sticking it into the pipe end, (sort of like the loose fire-hose nozzle that flips back and forth) that the drain will accept the flood of water. Try that before calling your friendly plumber.

Water pumps out of new air gap valve


A properly installed air gap valve will have the line from the washer connected to the pipe that runs up the middle of the valve. The water will flow up the center tube to the top and be redirected back down the outer drain to the disposal or drain. If the top of the valve is not secured, water will spray out. If the drain tube is kinked or obstructed, the water will flow out the top with nowhere to go.

Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

Often the problem is at the point wherethe drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drainline. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hoseor hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting thedishwasher again. Pump Yourdishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directlyto the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You canreach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to removethe lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Lookfor an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spinsaround. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through thespray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which issimilar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impellerpushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up thepump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replacethem. Drain valve and/or solenoid Manydishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. Whenelectricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts thewater 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 mayhave to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, themotor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drainvalve diverts the water. Partof what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If thetimer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need toreplace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Water isn't draining.


Hi,
If the water won't drain from the dishwasher, first manually remove as much water as possible and then check the sump area for paper or any other large object. Make sure the door is properly latched. The pump will not drain if the door is not latched properly. Check the belt, drain line, air gap, drain valve and solenoid assembly, the motor, and the pump. If your dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump, and it has broken or come off the pulley, replace it.
A cup or so of water in the sump area of your dishwasher is normal. It is there to prevent the seals from drying out. The dishwasher will pump this old water out before beginning to wash.
If you have recently installed a garbage disposer in your home, make sure that the drain plug on the disposer has been removed. It's just a little plastic piece that blocks the hole where you hook the dishwasher drain hose. If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposer, you need to run the garbage disposer before you run the dishwasher to make sure that the drain is clear.
There is a drain hose between the drain valve or pump and the garbage disposal or drain line. If an obstruction has blocked this, then your dishwasher won't drain. The drain hose is connected by clamps to the drain valve and the disposer or drain pipe. Remove it and visually inspect it for a clog or a kink. Try to remove any debris. If it is in good condition, just put it back on, and if not, purchase a new one to install.
If you don't have an air gap in the drain line, at least use a high drain loop. Making a large loop about 18" off the ground with the drain line can prevent any back flow into the dishwasher from the sink.
If you have one, the air gap will be located on top of the sink. The air gap is there to prevent any siphoning of standing water from the sink. When your dishwasher drains, the air gap diaphragm will form a seal and allow the water to drain properly. If the diaphragm in the air gap is faulty, it's possible that water can leak onto the cabinet and into the sink area. When this happens, then the air gap must be replaced.
Like the inlet valve, there is also a drain valve on most models. When no power goes to the drain valve it remains closed and prevents water from leaving the machine. When the valve receives power during the drain cycle, the solenoid opens and allows the water to leave the machine. If your drain hose is attached directly to the pump, you don't have a drain valve. The motor simply reverses and the pump sends the water in the opposite direction, which is out of the machine.
If the motor doesn't turn or work properly, the dishwasher may not drain. Make sure you have power to the unit. If you notice that the motor hums but won't turn, it could be seized, and you probably need to replace it.
Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and remove any debris buildup. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher and pushes the water from the dishwasher.

Doesnt drain all the way and smells pretty bad from standing wate


ok if it doesnt drain properly... it means the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up.
check these: Drain line/air gap Pump Drain valve and/or solenoid Belt Motor Timer

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain.
Air gaps are installed in the drainage system to prevent the discharge from the dish washer to enter the sewer system and the contaminated water to drain back into the dishwasher after the pump stops.
When we install a dish washer we loop the discharge hose as high up under the cabinet as we can and secure it with pipe straps.
This creates a air gap so that when the pump stops nothing from the drainage system can flow back into the dish washer.


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.

If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week,you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors just can't be serviced.also refer the following links http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dishwasher/check/airgap.php

Water drains to drain air gap on sink


Hi John,
From your description, it sounds like the line going into your drain system ( through the garbage disposal or directly into your drain itself) may be restricting water flow.. A quick test would be to detach your drain hose and cycle an empty dishwasher but run the drain water into a rubber barrel so as to eliminate your drain system from being the root cause. If it doesn't drain correctly into a barrell, then you may have a clogged filter or an something in the pump ( including but not necessarily the problem.. a bad pump) Try this test and let me know what happens..
Regards,
Rick

My dish washer does not drian completly


the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.

Dishwasher not draining


I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.
