Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Are the dishwashers supposed to drain completely away as there is water sitting under the filters?

Originally the dishwasher just wasn't draining but now it is coming up as an error E4 (overfilled) all it says on the paperwork is that it could be due to too much inlet water?

There is a check valve on the pump outlet where the drain hose connects to the machine. It may have something holding it open.

SOURCE: E4 error on new conia dishwasher

I have a Maytag MJD3000AAW dishwasher and it was showing E4 during a cycle. On checking the pressure tube from the outlet of the dishwasher to the nozzle on the u tube under the sink, I fould that the dishwasher was not draining properly as a kink have developed in the tube where it curved back to the nozzle. I slid the pressure tube into a long elbow which stopped the tube from pinching. Problem solved.

SOURCE: error code e4 on kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher too much inlet wate

HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher Drainage / inlet warning light

I had the same problem a few days ago. I followed the instructions to clean the filter and check to see that the impeller was free to rotate in both directions. The problem persisted. After reading this thread, and a similar one on another site, I tried what mikeboerma suggested in "solution #3", and bingo, problem solved. The magic combination is to push and hold the on/off button and the start/stop button.

Where to I check to see where filter is on dishwasher


I do not think there is a replaceable filter on this dishwasher - it is supposed to be self cleaning. If you put some bleach in the dishwasher that should knock any smell out of any standing water. If the odor remains, perhaps it is another source? Something behind or under? I once had a terrible odor from the fridge and cleaned the entire thing out with bleach water - still remained. Finally found a dead mouse behind fridge...

My Dishwasher is not draining the water away, & the tap signal light is on?


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 does not drain after washing the dishes. It just sits in the bottom of the dishwasher.

DISHWASHER DRAINING POORLY


Check to see if you have a plugged, kinked, drain hose or screen. Do you know how to disassemble the bottom of the diswasher to get access to the drain hose? Also, is the dishwasher drain and hose properly vented?

Dishwasher doesn't drain


Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.
