Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps...

Will not empty water


Hi.

If the machine does not drain you usually have drain blockage. Clean the drain well at the bottom of the tub. remove and clean filter and assembly parts. Make sure that the drain hose at the back of the dishwasher is not kinked.

Several Miele dishwasher uses a pressure switch to determine the water level. A defective pressure switch may prevent the machine from starting.
If this model uses a pressure switch, the switch will be located in the drain line. When a pressure switch is defective the machine should return an error code. Here a picture of the pressure switch:

If that does not fix the problem the pump located under the bottom panel must be tested.

Front loading washer, kenmore 417.42052100 won't completely drain and leaves a tub full of water. Has been getting worse over the last week and now won't drain at all. Took off front panel to try...


The drain filter/coin trap is blocked or the pump is no longer working. The filter/trap is located inside the big black hose that runs from the bottom of the tub to the pump and hence the name tub-to-pump hose. Clean the filter and inspect the pump impeller for damage or restriction.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you can now loosen the clamps securing the tub-to-pump hose to the bottom of the tub and the pump's inlet then take the hose out and clean the filter/trap.

You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from the foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not being pumped out properly or none at all. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely or if the pump is no longer operational. You can tell the pump is no longer operational if all are clean and the impeller is in good shape and turning freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.

When installing the filter in the coin trap, the top ring of the filter MUST be seated in the 3rd convolution from the bottom.

Water goes in and out, timer working but machine is not agitating


Sounds like your drain hose is too low. The drain must be higher than the tub so it won't run out before it gets full. If it is not to the cut off point before the water is as high as the drain the water will run out the drain and never get to the cut off point. It wont agitate untill the water level switch cuts off the water. Hope this will help.

My general electirc washer model wcvh6800j1ms, after working some minutes and after drain all the water in the tub, fills the tub with more water totally unusual (almost full all the tub, this washer use...


I had a similar problem ... mine was related to a hole in the pressure switch hose (code E22). Inside the washer, there is a pressure switch that senses how full the tub is. It does so using air pressure at the bottom of the tub -- air hose gets "pushed on" by the filling water and causes a pressure spike the switch. If you develop a leak in the air hose, the pressure switch never gets exhausted. There is a safety feature that engages if the water runs for more that 8 minutes without the pressure switch engaging. E22 is one of the codes related to this event. Easy way to see if this is an issue is to run a diagnostic test.

Check out this posting for how to do so: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part

Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes. At the bottom of that posting is a link to the code definitions with problem resolutions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9556917-ge_model_wcvh6800j_error_code_04

WE have a Frigidaire top loader about 4 - 5 years old, and it went into a spin cycle with the tub full of water. any ideas? It threw water everywhere. I'm thinking stuck contacts on timer.


sounds more like you have something stuck in the drain pump or drain hose. use a shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and see how easy or hard the water comes out.
if it comes out easy possible small object stuck in the pump. if the water comes out slow or none at all there is a piece of clothing or something in the drain hose that comes from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump

Full of water, won't drain past the agitation stage, just goes dead


It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump 
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. 

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. 

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Won't rinse or drain


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Water


Sounds like the water inlet solenoid ie, where the inlet flexible hose connects to, may be leaking. To prove this, close off the external stop tap(s) after use. Then see next day whether any water has entered the tub. If it has, the solenoid valve needs changeing. tip! if its faulty dont risk 'not changeing it' because it may leak FULL BORE & cause a flood sooner or later
