Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Water not pumping out


Hello there and welcome to fixya
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

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

Water will not drain from bottom of dishwasher.


Possible that the drain pump/valve is faulty or is clogged. It is best to check the voltage on the pump/valve of the washer , if absent the program controller must be checked., if present with no drain then the pump/valve is clogged /failed and must be taken out to be cleaned or replaced.

Does not pump water during the wash cycle.


It sounds like you are on the right track.

Open the dishwasher, remove the bottom rack, then remove the thumb nut in the middle of the unit that secures the lower wash arm and housing. Look for debris and clear any you find. Try again. If no joy, you will have to repeat the first step and also remove the wash pump upper housing that is secured with torx head screws. Same thing after you remove it - look for debris in the impeller area and remove it.

If you have to remove the wash impeller, you will need a 1" offset box wrench and as I recall a 1/4" socket. The 1" offset box wrench is needed to keep the impeller from turning while you remove the center nut. You will also need to remove the upper discharge line retainer clip to get that out of your way. Inspect the impeller for any debris and especially cracks or missing blades. If the impeller is damaged it will need to be replaced.

While you have this thing apart, check the lower wash arm and upper wash arm discharge pipe assembling for any obstructions.

I am assuming the motor runs ok and the timing cycles seem normal.

GE Dishwasher not draining the water out


hi eddavid,

thank you for using fixya.

with regard to your issue, here is the possible cause. The check valve is worn and letting water back in the tub while it is draining there for not draining all the water out.

Can temporarily be repaired with a cork until i can get a new check valve.

You may also try to restart dishwasher with rinse only and as soon as it starts push reset and it will drain water out.

Going deeper into the appliance, the dishwasher has a rubber flapper style check valve located between the soil collection chamber and the drain line. These go bad and restrict the water from draining out. Also some models have a valve under screen in back called a piston valve if this has debris keeping it from opening and closing or is deteriorated you will need to change this also.Start washer let fill initiate pump out water should exit rapidy into drain if its slow check both items above

Hope this helps, if you have other question, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Regards,

voodoo

Maytag dishwashwer problem


hi try this In most dishwashers, the water pump is located under the lower sprayer arm. This component pumps the water through the dishwasher. The pump has two impellers, top and bottom. These, as well as other components, can become clogged with food or detergent. Here's how to disassemble the pump:
Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.
Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.
Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.
Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.
Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.
To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.
On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.
