Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers
I just installed a new drain hose on my Fridgedaire dishwasher because it had a pinhole leak. Now it drains sometimes, but most of the time it pools in the bottom of the dishwasher. I've been reading about air locks and having the drain hose going about 20'' high. Tell me how to avoid airlocks in the pump and hose, thanks.

By the airlock , you mean the air gap? .If the water is coming out of you air gap that means the hose that connects the air gap to your drain is clogged or your drain itself is clogged.Check the hose that connect the air gap to your drain(or disposer), check air gap and clogged disposer opening

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: You have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. You have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. You poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. You have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no avail....you don't know what is causing this issue....can I help you out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do you fix this and will it be very expensive.
Have you recently replaced the garbage disposal? Sometimes the installer forgets to remove the knockout plug. All of the disposal manufacturers plug the d/w connection in case it is installed where there is no d/w. If there is a d/w, the plug must be removed.
Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Jenn Air dishwasher leaking
the emptying valve is underneath in the middle normally and it is what the drain hose connects to on the dishwasher. The drain hose itself is connecting with either a c clamp or hose clamp, check to make sure it is tightened all the way. Also do you have an idea of what part of the dishwasher the leak is coming from? If it is not the drain valve, then check to make sure it is not leaking from the door itself, as the door just has a rubber gasket that seals it and it might be that the gasket is bad. If it's not the door and not the drain valve, it could then be coming from the drainage pump or the motor for the dishwasher, which means the seal is broken and the motor or pump would need replaced. If you are unsure of how to do so then i would contact a repair technician to fix it for you.

The drain motor might be worn so it still pumps out fairly well but will let wtare back in once it stops pumping. It may also have something stuck in it so it ot is worth removing and cleaning through with a good degreasing cleaner.
