Well, without knowing the model, suspect it's GE or knock-off brand. Typically the drain solenoid will have a melt down, causing this situation. Easy answer is to replace the pump assembly, and reccomended. My sisters dishwasher did the same thing, the soleniod was melted, so I just replaced the solenoid only to find the pump bearing was drying out. So for the hassle and cost, I replaced the whole pump assembly, now it's quiet as a mouse, and works fine. This is a very easy fix, Basically you need a 5/16" nut driver and wrench, tip the unit back and swap em out. gotta love plug and play...

Need cleaning info


Manual version: Prepare a cup of white vinegar and 4 cups of water. Pour into reservoir and initiate "clean" cycle. Boiler was warm up, shut off and repeat over the period of about a half hour, and then finally cough up all the stuff and end the cycle. Then, fill with cold water and run a full brew cycle to rinse.

My version: Dump about a quarter cup of CLR into the reservoir, let stand for a half hour. Then, add 4 cups of water and run the "clean" cycle. After finishing, unplug and turn unit over over the sink to completely drain, use tap water to clean and flush the reservoir thoroughly, dry thoroughly and then plug in, reset the clock and brew time, and run a full load of drinking water/distilled water through to final rinse. It will last forever with my method.

There is standing water in bottom when cycle is over


Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that the outlet pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe or the pump or selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine once more before using it again.

Water standing under bottom drawer


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

We have a Zanussi that has been fine for 2 years but the last week it has turned a powdery white inside and on the door with all the dishes becoming chalky. There is rinse aid and salt. Hope you can help


Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes. At the end of the cycle the separator is flushed out and the trapped dirt goes down the drain. If it doesn't get flushed out the dirt builds up till it starts showing up on the dishes. Some separators have a hole on top and one on bottom with a valve which stops up one hole or the other depending which cycle it's running. The valve can be stuck or broken causing the problem.

Water standing in tub


If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

No water at flush


sound like the water shut-off needs to be replaced.
if you turn on/off the shut-off, the tank get enough water to flush, then you get less water every time you use the toilet. that is the shut-off valve problem.
you may able to to just change the rubber seal.
I have not found change the seal will last as long as a new valve. better off, just change one.

Dishwasher dose not drane


YOU CAN TRY REMOVING THE LOWER RACK AND LIFT OFF THE SPRAYER. THE DRAINAGE WHOLE IS USUALLY VISABLE. YOU CAN FLUSH OUT THE DRAIN TO SEE IF THAT DOES IT. THERE SHOULD BE NO STANDING WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR DISH WASHER AFTER WASH CYCLE AND DRY CYCLE. HOPE I COULD HELP.
