You need to make a loop in the drain line so the line is higher than the drain outlet that way the drain water has to travel up to get to the washer witch it will not. that should stop the water from getting to the dishwasher.

Water is not draining


First, Is any water draining? If yes, look for restrictions or siphoning back into the machine. Hair and paper are common restrictions on the anti-siphon/overflow device. It's' on the sink top. Remove the cap, take a long nose pliers to remove the inner top plastic piece. Remove the junk - hair, paper, etc. Put a inverted cup and run the drain cycle. Move junk and water will come out. Re- assemble. Also check for kinks in the drain hose(s). Also clean out the filter and screen in the dishwasher. Watch out for broken glass. If new garbage disposer, make sure the knock out plug was remove -- should see water enter from the dishwasher. If you don't have an anti-siphon device, get one. Otherwise drain water will back into the dishwasher.

Kenmore Elite dishwasher will not drain


If the drain pump won't run, the most common cause is something hard (like a piece of glass or hard plastic) got into the pump and is blocking the impeller. If you want to fix it yourself, first unpug the dishwasher. Then you will need to either siphon the water out of the sump area or use a wet vac to suck out the water from the sump area. Then remove the toe-kick panel so you can get to the underside of the dishwasher. Depending on the model, you may be able to access the drain pump from there, or you may have to pull the dishwasher out. Then you can remove the end of the drain hose and check the area there. If that's okay, you can remove the drain pump by finding and pressing on the release button or lever, and turning it 1/8 turn counter-clockwise, If there's an obstruction, you will find it now. If no obstruction, then you probably have a bad drain pump and will need to replace it.

For Miele Dishwasher G2470SCVI Need help with remaining water in the bottom. Model# G2470 SCV1 SF Type-HG03. Runs through the entire cycle,long,short ect..everything is clean and dishes look great but


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Drain Hose If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher
Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

MY FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER WILL NOT DRAIN. MOTOR ONLY HUMS DURING DRAIN CYCLE. OTHER THAN DRAINING IT SEEMS TO WORK FINE. DAY IT QUITE WORKING SINK BACKED UP AND WOULD NOT DRAIN


if there is still water in the dishwasher take the drain hose off from under the sink and use a large pot or mop bucket and but the unit into a drain mode usually by cancelling the wash cycle if the unit still does not drain.Then use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water
after the water is gone check the drain pump for any kind of obstructions you may need to replace the drain pump

Water does not drain


Hi

You can :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit

Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.

Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.

Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )

Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

Check pump impeller for damage.

Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
Please contact for further clarifications.

Thanks
