If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap Aclog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reasonthat a dishwasher won't drain. 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.

Other dishwashers simply reverse thedirection of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't havea drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to thepump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor Ifthe motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First checkto be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section"It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it mayneed to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible togetting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run thedishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin themotor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it.Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer 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.

Best bet is to contact the shop you bought the unit from if its brand new.

I have a new stainless steel Samsung dishwasher. It doesn't seem to be drying properly. Dishes and dishwasher still very wet after cycle is completed.


Hello

Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo

Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

If these recommendations do not improve drying time, please contact Samsung Customer Care

How do you clean the baby pro bottle warmer?


Ice container, measuring containers, and baskets: Dishwasher-safe (top rack only).

Measuring containers should be placed in a dishwasher basket. Or wash in warm water
using mild liquid soap. Rinse with clear water.

Bottle Warmer unit and removable cooler: Always turn OFF and unplug before cleaning.
Wipe surface of unit as well as inside of cooler and cooler lid, and inside of warming
chamber with a damp cloth or sponge using mild liquid soap. Wipe with clear water. Air dry.
Do not immerse in water. Do not use scouring pads, solvents, or abrasive cleaners, as
these could damage the unit.

Warming chamber (optional): Mineral deposits (usually white in color) may form on the
inner surfaces of the warming chamber and can cause damage to the unit. To remove them:
1. Unplug the unit.
2. Remove the basket, and wash separately as indicated above.
3. Pour 2 oz. vinegar into the warming chamber and let it stand for an hour or two (longer if
necessary).
4. Pour out the vinegar and rinse the chamber two or three times by pouring in, then
emptying out, 3 or 4 oz. of plain tap water. Do not immerse the Bottle Warmer in water.
Wipe dry or air dry.

My dishwasher is brand new and is not drying the dishes!!! they are still wet. the model number is she55mi 2uc/60


If you are using a quick cycle there is not a dry cycle included due to the short wash. Ensure you use rinse aid even if you are using a product that includes it, as this assists the drying cycle by breaking the surface tension of the water and allowing less water to 'stick' to the load. Check that you have the machine set to the use the rinse aid and that the intensive dry is on. This can be done by following the instructions in your manual.
Extra Dry Heat
With this option you can raise the temperature of the rinse water and increase the drying time for improved drying.
This option is only for units with a display. If your unit has a display window, please follow the instructions below.
NOTE: The unit must be powered OFF before activating.
To activate:
Press and hold the left "Cancel Reset" button, then • press and hold the ON/OFF button.
The model number I think should read SHE55M12UC/60.
I hope this helps.
When the LED display window indicates a "0" or "1" • release both buttons.
To activate extra dry heat, press the left "Cancel Reset" • button until the display indicates "1".
To disable extra dry heat, press the left "Cancel Reset" • button until the display indicates "0".
Press the ON/OFF button to save the setting.

Water wont come out


I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying something else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Water is not drainig from bottom of dishwasher


normally its two things, 1 over sudzing or 2. or a semi clogged drain. over sudzing can be caused by using jet dry and let say a cascade with a jet dry shine that can cause the unit to have alot of soap. in some units the way it operates is that when the sensors see there is alot of soap it will keep rinsing to get out soap until it cant rinse no more.reduce with a regular soap with no extra jet dry,your drain may has to be cleaned it might be a slight blockage. let me know how you made out.

Doesnt dry dishes


The heater on this unit only comes on twice, once in the wash cycle, and again in the Sanitary rinse. During the drying cycle all that happens is a vent opens and a fan comes on. The fan removes the hot moist air from the unit and the dishes dry off. If your water is not hot enough, this is why your dishes are still wet. Rinse aid also helps to sheen off the excess water as well.

HElp Dishes not coming clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.

Rinse aid used very fast and dishes not drying


Look for a blue or green streak on the door panel when you upen it to load the dishes. Does the washer sound different during the wash than it used to? If so your dispenser is leaking. This will also cause the water to suds up and not wash as well as it should. Start the washer with no detergent or dishes and let it run for 5 minutes, then open the door and see if there are a lot of suds in the water. Post back to let me know what you find.
