Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLBL Built-in Dishwasher
My 3 year old kitchen aid dishwasher allows water to go out via the drain while wash cycle is running until no water is in the unit to circulate and wash, then it just humms until shut off time out. I check the drain check valve, it is operating properly by allowing water to flow out toward septic system but does not allow any flow from drain system back into machine. I do not see a valve between the drain pipe and the drain pump motor. How does the washer supposed to keep the water in the unit while washing?
Your dishwasher is siphoning the water out. The drain hose should turn upward, nearly to the bottom side of the counter top, before it attaches to the drain or disposal. If it has an independant drain it still needs the rise and also needs an air break to stop the siphoning.
