Dishwasher won't drain

I ran the dishwasher and it sounded like it was working fine. When I went to empty it, I found a pool of white water at the bottom of the machine. How can I fix this?

Good Morning Jean,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFBD2411NS, draining. There are a few things I would suggest:

1) If the appliance is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make
sure the disposer is empty.
2) Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed
from inside the food waste disposer inlet.
3) Check to see if drain hose is kinked.
4) Check the glass trap filter to see if anything is preventing the water from draining.
5) Overfill Protector should move up and down freely about one inch. If it does not move, lift and clean underneath. Clean occasionally with
household cleaner containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve any buildup.

If none of these suggestions help your dishwasher to drain the water, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: Dishwasher not pumping the water out?

hi
the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining and making a noise

Ok, normally, when you hear abnormal noises and the draining has stopped, this will point to the pump/motor assembly. this assembly , basically, runs together in unison. the pump/motor are as one and if the motor is malfunctioning, the pump will not drain properly. this noise is coming from the pump housing. There are many parts that are located in this housing and one fragile part that can cause issues is the Impeller. this piece provides the pump action that moves the water during drainage. If the sleeve that connects to the Impeller becomes stripped, the motor drive bolt will simple spin freely, causing this noise and no drainage. The motors fine but, you will have to replace the pump assembly in order for this noise to stop and the normal draining cycle to return. just to be safe, check all the drainage hoses as well.

please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use

Hi BB,
There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?

The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...

Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...
4cc45a0.jpg

The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...

I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.

After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.

Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

SOURCE: The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working

I INSTALLED A NEW GARBAGE DISPOSER AND THEN FOUND THAT THE DISHWASHER WOULD NOT DRAIN. READ THAT THERE WAS A SEAL IN THE NOZZLE OF THE GARBAGE DISPOSER THAT HAS TO BE REMOVED IF IT IS ATTACHED TO A DISHWASHER. I DISCONNECTED THE HOSE,WITHOUT REMOVING THE GARBAGE DISPOSER, PLACED A SCREWDRIVER IN THE HOLE AND HIT IT WITH A HAMMER AND KNOCKED IT OUT. REPLACED THE HOSE AND TIGHTENED THE RING AROUND THE HOSE. TURNED THE DISWASHER TO DRAIN AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY. MY MISTAKE FOR NOT READING THE DIRECTIONS THOROUGHLY. ALL IS WORKING WELL; HOPE THE SAME FOR YOU.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

We have just installed GE Model GLDL560NSS. It fills with water and it emptys the water but it doesn't actually wash or rinse. The water just sits at the bottom of the dishwasher tub


I had the same problem running the dishwasher the second time. The first time worked perfectly. I thought the problem was from the sensor not reading enough water to actually start the wash cycle. It sure uses less than any dishwasher I've had before. When I tried to restart it the machine drained the water that was in it. I later found out it does this automatically when you push the restart button. I poured water from a bucket into the dishwasher and tried this a few times and found that on the fourth try it ran fine and haven't had a problem since. I didn't know how much to put in and did overfill it once. Maybe the sensor float or whatever was stuck and overfilling it helped.???

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.

Dishwasher did not drain all the water


Your sink drain is clogged and the back pressure is not allowing the dishwasher to drain competely. Do not use a liquide drain cleaner, it will damage your disposal. take apart p-trap hopefully the clog is there, otherwise the line will need to be snaked.

Problem with my dishwasher not draining at all.....


Has this Dishwasher ever drained at all? In installations the need to have a drain line attached to a disposal system is top on the list, how ever some times the connection is made but a small plug in the disposal on the inside of the wall of the grinding chamber has to be knocked out to allow for proper draining of the dishwasher water.
