Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher hose - I am changing my kitchen and want the dishwasher further away from the drain and water pipe. Is it ok to extend the hoses (by adding another hose onto the current hoses) or do they need to be short for it to work correctly?

SOURCE: i need to extend the drain hose on my hotpoint

Check the inside diameter of the drain hose with a ruler.

Go to your hardware shop and tell them that you want two plastic inline connectors and 4 Jubilee clips for an inside diameter hose of ???

Get a one foot piece of clear plastic tubing from the same place.

Cut the hose in the middle insert one of the connectors and tighten it on with a clip put the plastic tubing on and tighten that

Put a clip on the plastic hose and fit the next connector tighten that up, now fit the original hose end and tighten the clip , job done

We heard a loud gushing sound and the dishwasher leaked all over the kitchen floor. Why?


The drain hose may have disconnected from the dishwasher or at the waste trap or the drain hose maybe broken.
If the drain hose is OK then the water supply hose may have disconnected from the tap or the water hose is broken and fresh water is leaking from this hose.

Dishwasher Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

My dishwasher doesnt drain away


Hi

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 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... Please post back for any further assistance.

What is the hose on the side of the dishwasher for. what does it connect to.


A rubber hose from a dishwasher should be the drain hose that goes to the sink drain or garbage disposal. (The metal/copper pipe should be the hot water supply pipe).

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.


possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.

After washing dishes in the kitchen sink, water fills up and stands in the dishwasher and drains only after running the dishwasher


Hi, There is a drain hose under the sink that goes to the dishwasher. Make sure that hose is raised up higher then the drain pipe for you sink. It is just draining into the dishwasher because the drain hose is to low.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Water gets into disher when not inuse


dishwasher drain enters sewer system tapped into waste pipe below kitchen sink
water flowing from kitchen sink passes the opening of the dishwasher pipe
If the dishwasher hose does not loop up higher than the kitchen sink before going down to the bottom of the dishwasher water may flow downhill through the dishwasher drain into the dishwasher
ensure the dishwasher drain hose is screwed to the underside of the kitchen counter, to provide a stop to water flow.
The installation instructions suggest this
but often the dishwasher is at the end of its 'stretch'
and the installer assumes looping is just to use up excess hose, and doesnt.
an extension drain hose is available at most appliance stores

Broken dishwasher


If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days.)

If there is water in the dishwasher -i.e. it was part way through the cycle and stopped, it maybe that the outlet hose/pipe has got blocked - possibly by your plumber's efforts. Generally speaking, the fats are rinsed off by the hot water, but go solid further along the pipes, as it cools. It could be he has unblocked the sink drain side of things, but not the dishwasher drain pipe. Risking more water on the floor, if your flexible waste hose can be removed, pour some water down the waste pipe, see if it goes away fast enough.

One thing worth trying, if not done so, is to unplug it from the supply, and leave unplugged for 20 minutes or so. Then plug it in and see if it operates OK then. Maybe try that first.
