Kitchenaide dishwasher drains sometimes


You also might have a blockage in your air gap. Your air gap sits on your sink. You generally have the dishwasher drain line going into the air gap and then the other side of the air gap is a hose that attaches to the garbage disposal. If plastic items like stickers from vegetables and fruit go through your pump they can accumulate in the end of the air gap and cause no drain situations.If you do not have an air gap and your drain line is going directly into your garbage disposal then you need to make sure that the drain line sits higher than the dishwasher tub and has a loop in it. This will avoid any water backing back into the dishwasher when you are using your sink. You will need to take the cap off the air gap and look inside.

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I...


Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

Well I do have a problem with the drainage, the pipeline will over flow whenwwashing machine is draining water out but I have ran a snake down it and didn't seem to find a clog. But the water splashes out...


There must be enough air allowed into the drainage pipe in order for the water to go down...Apparently there is not enough air entering into the drainage line to allow the water to flow quickly...Check the vent pipe on this drainage line. If these are new machines you may have to increase the diameter of the pipe so that displacement can occur as fast as the water is flowing.

Dishwasher Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

The auto drainage isn't working properly


You will need to check the drain hose to make sure that you don't have a partial blockage. If you have an air gap check that to make sure it is not partially stopped up. If you don't have an air gap check to make sure your drain hose is not lower than your sink drain allowing water from the sink to drain back into the dishwasher.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

No drainage


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Washing machine inlet/drain problem


You may have a simple problem known as "siphoning". Have you checked your installation/ In particular, the drain hose? the following link explains how to check and correct a siphoning problem with a washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Usually when a washer drains as it tries to fill, its a drainage problem of some type. You may have a simple problem that is easily remedied. You may not require anything, but pulling the drain hose up out of the standpipe and repositioning it to ensure there is a proper air gap for drainage. I hope this helps you.

Dishwasher doesn't drain


how do you check to see if the pump is pumping? The drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. The garbage disposal is not clogged either.

Washer wont fill, keeps draining


If you do not allow an air gap for proper drainage on your drain line, the water will siphon out of the washer as it tries to fill. Double check to make sure: 1. You do not have the washer drain hose placed too far down into the standpipe. 2. You do not have the top of the standpipe sealed off. Placing the hose too far into the standpipe may cause the drain line to be sitting in water in the drain trap, leaving no air gap. Sealing off the top of the standpipe will have the same affect. Remember, you need an air gap for proper drainage. Only place the hose about 3 to 4 inches into the standpipe and the fit should not be tight. That is, there should be an air gap around the drain hose as it sits inside the standpipe. Double check and let me know if this helps.
