    do to a flood my frigidaire dishwasher was disconnected by the plumber and set a side for about 5 weeks,the plumber hooked if back up and now after the cycle is finished the bottom of the tub is full of water.the only change made is now the drain hose is coming through the bottom of the cabinet and hooked to the sink drain where as before the drain hose came through the top of the cabinet i believe my dishwasher is 8 years old but this is my first problem

Arlo, sounds like your pump isn't working right. You should hear it pushing water about during the wash cycle. If not, check the filter screen on the unit first. Next, we'll have to talk about what to check ... pump motor or timer.

Water will not drain completely/or at all from unit.machine cycles thru all stages, dishes seem clean but lots of water left in botton of washer.

The filter is probably blocked.

It is inside the base of the machine.

Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

Dishes not clean after running. Dishes and glasses have a white residue on them after drying. Water is turned on and seems to ok. When I open the washer after the wash cycle starts there are several...


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more informatiion.

Not cleaning dishes.

check if some dirt got in the arms of the washer as sometime this will slow the flow of water and not allow the pressure to clean the dishes well

Water is not circulating. machine runs full cycle but when opened, soap is in a mushy lump, not dispersed or dissolve, and dishes are still soiled

When was the last time you cleaned you drain filter? That should be done routinely .. If that's clogged then the the sediment from other cycles just gets redistributed on your dishes.. You might also check the washing arm that spins for debris or clogs.. Try cycling it without any dishes a few times to see if all the water drains out after a cycle.. That will help you identify if its a drain problem or if the system needs other service.. Hope that helps !

Have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.

I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.
