You also might have a blockage in your air gap. Your air gap sits on your sink. You generally have the dishwasher drain line going into the air gap and then the other side of the air gap is a hose that attaches to the garbage disposal. If plastic items like stickers from vegetables and fruit go through your pump they can accumulate in the end of the air gap and cause no drain situations.If you do not have an air gap and your drain line is going directly into your garbage disposal then you need to make sure that the drain line sits higher than the dishwasher tub and has a loop in it. This will avoid any water backing back into the dishwasher when you are using your sink. You will need to take the cap off the air gap and look inside.

Usually when you have intermittent drainage the check valve in the drain hose is staying open allowing water back into the sump the fact that it is draining tells me the pump is rotating on a few occasions i have found a broken vane on the pump impeller you will usually hear a rattling sound I am assuming the drain line is routed correctly and it did drain correctly at one point.

Kitchenaid normal cycle light and cancel light both blinking. Dishwasher wont start


Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

Please do the following to reset the washer. Normally the clean light sometimes flashes and just needs to be reset. To do so hit the keys in the following order. <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Cancel>.

The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again

Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Kitchenaid dishwasher kuds24sewh2. It won't drain


Hi,
  • A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

  • Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
  • Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

  • Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Kitchenaid dishwasher won't drain someone opened door during cycle will this cause a problem


Opening the door wont matter. If you stop the cycle during a run it will always go into a drain. You might have a plugged drain line or burnt drain pump..
