SOURCE: Hi, I have a 10yr

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

Not totally draining


Try these:

Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

GE Profile Dishwasher not draining


HI,

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:


Drain line/air gap 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.

Pump 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.

Drain valve and/or solenoid 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.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Hi there, our dishwasher hasn't drained. we are assuming that it may have something to do with the pump. Is there anyway that we can see if it's the pump before we call someone in to look at it? Or...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Without your model number this is a very GENERIC response. With a MAKE & Model number I could pass exact steps as to how to go about troubleshooting. Having said that here goes. You did not mention if the drain pump was running and it was not draining so for the mopment I have to assume the motor is running but the unit is not draining. Do the following steps:
1. Remove the drain hse from the sink connection and check the drain port for a clog. This is usually a garbage disposal connection but it can be a direct connection. Re-connect the drain hose after checking / clearing the drain port.
2. If you have an Air-Gap on the back of your sink or near the dishwasher, lift the cover up and off of the Air-Gap. In the very top of the Air-Gap there is a plastic threaded nut you must unscrew to gain access to the the drain plumbing in the top of the Air Gap. NOTE the installed position of the cap as it will only install one way. Remove any debris in this area. Use a wire coat hanger and a flashlight if necessary to clean the port that exits to the sink connection. The open plastic tube you will see is the connetion from the dishwasher. This should also be clear. Reassemble the Air-Gap in the same manner as dis-assembly. Reconnect any hoses if you removed any to clear drain ports.
3. Make sure power to the dishwasher is secured and remove the lower kick panel. Remove the drain hose from the pump housing and check for debris in the pump and pump port. Clear out any debris in this area.
4. Here is where not having the model number comes into focus. Without that model number the procedures for checking the tub sump and impeller are drastically different. The bottom line is the lower wash arm and support are removed.. any sump covers are removed and the screens / fins in the sump area are to be cleared of debris. Dome units the impeller is in the sump... other units the impeller is in the motor pump assembly that has a macerator before the pump inlet. If the inlet to the pump / motor is clogged it must be cleared. On units that have the motor pump assembly directly in the bottom of the unit there can be 2 levels of water flow. Upper for dishwashing and lower for draining. All passages in this area must be cleared.

Steps 1 and 2 above fix about 80% of the drainage problems. Test for drain function after steps one and two.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer instructions).
