Dishwasher won't drain, makes a funny clicking/scraping noise when it is supposed to be draining.


Water does not drain from the dishwasher:

  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

I'm getting an "LE" code also, and the dishwasher will not drain.


LE is a Motor error
Wiring connection is OK? The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked. The rotor of Washing Motor is locked. The Blade is locked.
Check the wiring connection. Replace the cause of restriction. Replace the Washing Motor. Replace the PCB

Dishwasher will not drain


Hi...

If you dishwasher fails to drain you need to check this following:

  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
Thedrain hose and recirculation hoses can be responsible for leaks. Thedrain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. Therecirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing ofdishes.
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
The timermotor regulates the length of time power is routed to each component.If the timer motor does not function properly, it can result in a widerange of problems. Common symptoms include sticking in a cycle, cycletimes running too long, or failure of the dishwasher to start at all.
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

Good luck !!!
