Hi, Tools you might need are, 1/4" & 5/16" nut driver/socket, phillips screw driver & pliers.
I would remove the drain hose from the sink and put the end into a bucket. Start the d/w into spin and see if water releases.
If it does, clesn out the sink port the hose connects to.
If the d/w does not drain, remove the lower front panel and locate the drain solenoid. With the d/w running, turn the timer/selector knob and see if the solenoid engages at the end of each cycle. If it does engage, the drain hose or the sump inside the d/w must be plugged.
If it does not engage, you will need to put a voltage meter in the wire connection on the solenoid and repeat the proccess with the turning the timer and see if the solenoid is getting 120V at any time.
If this is draining into a garbage disposal and you have replaces the disposal, make sure the plug inside where the drain hose hooks up has been removed. I see this quite often.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Doesn't drain out all the way water stays in


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water stays in bottom of dishwasher?


Check your drain hose for clogs. Bits of food can get caught in here and stop the water from draining.

Dishwasher filling with water when not in use.


you need to replace the fill valve located on the left side behind the kick plates located at the bottom of machine. But you can test this by turning off valve located under the sink.
However if the disposal is clogged its possible that water is back filling as it usaully drains through the disposal. Also make sure that the drain hose has'nt fallen below p-trap of sink.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

Water does not drain from GE dishwasher.


Remove the drain hose from under the sink to verify that there is no clog. If the dishwasher runs in the "cleaning" cycle, but won't drain, you either have a clog or a bad solenoid. All the solenoid does is opens a little door to change from cleaning cycle to drain cycle. This part is VERY EASY to change. Definitely a project for DIY. The part runs around $60 from a parts place. Check ebay if you do not need it immediately and you can save abt $30.

My dishwasher fills and runs but the water does not drain out of the machine and I have dirty water that then mixes with clean water to rinse the washed dishes and stays in the bottem.


There is a drain hose for your dishwasher that often gets clogged. Remove the drain hose and clean it out. reinstall the hose and your dishwasher will drain. The dishwasher should have a panel to remove and then comes out easily, just be careful not to pull it out too far. If this does not fixya then you may need to throw some parts at it, but hopefully not. Good luck

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.
