Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

I have water leaking onto the carpet on pass, side front & rear and I assume the drain for air cond is pluged. I don't know where the drain is located or how to unplug it. it is a 2003 cadillac...


i believe you have a leaking heater core, if the water is leaking out from under the dash right under the glove compartment this is almost certainly the problem

Code F02 is lighting up, but the drain not pluged


I would make sure that your using HE detergent. The FO2 error code can occur from a suds lock caused to too much detergent or not using high efficiency soap. If you are using HE soap then the problem is going to be in your drain pump. Its fairly easy to clean just google a how to on clearing the pump. Theres also some how's in the "tips" section on this webside. Hope this helps _MJ_

I have a quantum toilet that flushes normally but then syphons the water from the bowl Possible problem?


Look for your main plumbing vent that goes out your roof, is it pluged with a nest or something? When your drain system drains, it needs outside air from the vent to keep the system from vaccume lock. Same as vapor lock in the gas line on your vehicle. If the system is'nt getting air it will **** the water from the traps in your drain system like it is doing in your toilet. You may have to have a professional drain cleaner or plumber correct your pluged vent.
