Generally there is an access point to unblock the drain in a dishwasher. Use drano with extreme caution.

Dishwasher flooded


That happened to us and our plumber came. He said our pipe under the sink was bent up so the water wasn't draining properly. Also, check for clogs. Use Drano or a snake to get all the gunk out of the drain.

The problem is a clog in the hose or the check valve from the drain pump. I will post back shortly with directions to unclog it.

Hello the bottom of my dishwasher keeps filling up with water. How can i fix that??


The problem may be in one of several places, here's a list of things to try, starting with the easiest and progressing to more difficult:
1. Run your hand around the bottom of the pool in the dishwasher looking for paper or cellophane that may be covering the screen of the drain. 2. Disconnect the drain hose from under the sink (get a bucket and rags) looking for a clog at that point of connection. Run the dishwasher drain cycle while you have this hose pointed into a bucket - if nothing comes out, the problem is between points 1 and 2. 3. Partially remove the dishwasher so you can get to the drain hose where it connects to the dishwasher. Temporarily put another drain hose on it, with the other end in a bucket. Run the drain cycle of the dishwasher. If it comes gushing out, the drain hose is clogged. If it still won't drain, your will need some disassembly of the drain & pump. good luck, Al K

When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

Water building up in drain pan.


Is this a split unit? The drain line is probably clogged. If you have a shop vac you can use it on the drain line outside and clear the clog or maybe use something like drano. A little Clorox added to the drain pan every now and then will help keep the drain line from getting clogged. (Just a couple tablespoons)

Sewer backup


Do not put that in the drain in the basement. Use a sewer snake cleaner to fix the problem. Drain cleaner is very corrosive and can burn your skin. If it doesn't work, you will have to work around the drain cleaner.
