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

  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

Water still remains in the dishwasher even after cleaning up the drain?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in...


Was the drain tube that hooks into the sink drain passed over the partition between the sink area and washer area or through a low-level hole. If through a low-level hole, try rerouting the tube over the partition. This forms a 'trap area' to isolate the sink drain from the washer pump area. Hope this helps!

Dishwasher smells like fish


There are several possible causes.

First, make sure the machine is properly installed with the drain hose up in a loop or an air gap before going down to the drain. This is to ensure no dirty water or smells from the sour or garbage disposer backs up into the machine.

Sometimes nasty stuff gets trapped inside internal parts of the machine and inside the sprayer arms. It is normally easy to remove the sprayer arms for cleaning, on reasonably modern Bosch machines they can also be opened up for easy access.

There are also special dishwasher cleaning agents that you can use to perform periodic cleaning cycles. Some believe it is important to use rinse agents to minimize the problem, maybe it is worth trying if you don't use it.

If there is warranty left on the machine I would advise you to complain, there is a slight possibility there is something wrong in the machine for instance bad choice of insulation lining that have been known to emit foul smells.

Good luck with tracking down the cause of this!

My dishwasher Bosh Model SHU43C06UC has the drain clog


first feel around the drain and see if there is something stuck inside the drain. then take a small amount of clorox2 powder and run it through a cycle. after that try jet dry. sometimes there is a grease build up or a lime build up that needs to be removed.

Bad smell


smell is not the fault of the dishwasher but your waste disposal unit - they stink!

it may be awkward, but arrange your drain so that there is a water barrier. better still. install a standpipe for the drain, again with a water barrier
