Hi,
Your dishwasher may have food or lime/calcium buildup trapped inside it that may prevent it from draining properly, it could have a kink in its hose, or it may need a new part.

There are two basic designs, the direct drive dishwasher and the forward-reversing dishwashers. Direct drive dishwashers do not have to stop to drain the water will forward-reversing dishwashers The first thing you must do is figure out what style of d/w you have and a little of how it works so you can have a better understanding of what to look for.

My washer wont drain it goes thru all the cycles but wont drain. at first with clothes in it it would drain onto the ground and not thru the drain pipe. took the front cover off to see where it was leaking...


Sounds like the drain pump has failed. Try to turn the impeller to see if it is bound-up. It may just be debris blocking the rotation of the motor. Is there a filter that has plugged?

The problem is most likely the drain valve. It is electrically operated and with your problem it is the most common cause.
