Pump must be frozen. It should be directly under the machine, try to turn it with pliers.

Elimination Of Problems From Most To Least Likely:

1. Connection from discharge hose to drain pipe is blocked/corroded.
a) Loosen the gear clamp (5/16" Nut Driver/Phillips/Standard) holding the discharge hose to the barbed drain fitting.
b) Check that the barbed fitting is not blocked by poking at the opening wth a screwdriver.
c) If the barbed connection is Galvanzied and it has gotten heavily corroded, replacement of that fitting is recommended.

2. Discharge hose is blocked/kinked from dishwasher to drain connection.
a) After 1b), place discharge end of hose into a bucket and run the dishwasher through a cycle.
b) If flow is poor, examine hose for kinking or parts (such as couplings) that may have corroded shut. Removing front panel and using a flashlight will be required for this (1/4" nut driver/phillips) If such corrosion found, 1c).
c) If hose and fittings are ok, there may be an inline filter whose screen is clogged or a filter screen where the dishwasher ties into it's discharge line.
3. Pump has failedinternally . Usually held in place by large squeeze clamps, screws, gear clamps. Will most likely removal of dishwasher from alcove to repair. Any reputable dealer should stock parts. i.e. Kenmore => Sears
N.B. May be under warranty - check. May be cheaper just to get another dishwasher at this point, especially if the dishwasher is more than 10 years old.

SOURCE: Water didn't drain, left in bottom of washer tub

I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.

Use about a cup of Muriatic Acid. Run it through the dishwasher ( Empty of Course) five times. Only use the acid on the first cycle.

SOURCE: Water standing in tub

If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

What does code f03 mean


An F03 error code on many front load washers indicates a failure to drain properly. You can usually clear this fault code by pressing the pause/cancel button. Next, check the drum for water. If the drum still has water in it, restart a drain and spin cycle. This should drain the water from the tub.

If your washer will not drain, check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck more than 8 inches down the stand pipe.

If you do not hear your drain pump running, you may have a problem with your control or your drain pump. Also, if your pump is making a loud noise, it may be clogged. These problems would require service by a technician.

Kenmore washing machine will not drain water /spin cycle


There is likely an object (like a sock) lodged in the drain hose that runs from the tub to drain pump. It could be in the hose in which case a squeeze will verify, or jambed against the drain pump impellers. It could even be between the inner basket and outer tub covering the drain hole. Regardless it is usually easily retrievable with a little ingenuity as well as a little to big mess of water. So prepare for the water if you losen a hose. Unplug the machine before you start because electricity and water are never a good combination. A wet dry vac works good to remove standing water in the tub and you can even hold the nozzle over a loosened hose to remove water from it as it pours out. Let me know if you run into difficulty.

Maytag top load washer water runs but doesn't fill.


Drain is to low. You will have to raise the drain hose above the top of the washer. Whats happening is the water is siphoning out as fast as it goes in.

Washer will only fill halfway


hello, 1 possable problem a pretty common problem and the solution is blindingly simple. It’s caused by the drain hose siphoning water out of the washer tub. There are two common causes for siphoning and I’ll explain both of them below.


drain-min.jpgOne cause for siphoning is simply that the drain hose discharge is below the fill level of the washer tub. This picture shows the minimum drain height needed to avoid siphoning.
Another common cause for siphoning is not having an air break between the drain hose and the drain stand pipe. Usually, this isn’t a problem since the drain hose diameter is usually much smaller than the diameter of the drain stand pipe. But sometimes folks will inadvertently remove the air break by duct taping the drain hose to the stand pipe. They might do this because the drain hose keeps popping out of the stand pipe when the washer pumps out the tub. Other times, the drain hose might fit into the stand pipe with a tight interference fit.also check your water inlet valve filter/screen make sure its not clogged.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Washing machine


the number one cause of this is your drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe or too low beneath the tub the drain hase should loop above the tub and about 4 inches down in the stand pipe if not this will create a siphoning effect that will drain the water as it fills

Non-stop draining at whatever cycle selection


Is your drain pump constantly running? If it isn't, check the standpipe (drain pipe) and make sure you don't have your drain hose shoved down in the pipe too far or the top sealed off. The stand pipe needs an air gap to properly drain, or it can siphon water from the wash tub. Symptom: Washer continually tries to fill or slow fills, but water won't stay in wash tub. Double check your drain line to be sure. It could be a simple fix.
