I have just bought a house with this dishwasher. The first couple weeks it was fine, now not all of the water will drain. Ive taken it all apart and cleaned it but after washing there is about 2cm of dirty water covering the bottom. It happens with both but usually only one at a time. I have read horrible things about the dish draw, what could the problem be? Help Please

The most common cause of problems on dishwashers installed by the builder are Installation issues. Usually, the drain hose is kinked and food particles accumulates on the hose until it clogs completely.

If you are planning to fix it by yourself, please be aware about this is not an easy job. Not nice also, it quite a dirty job.

First, Be sure the plug at the food disposer under the sink was knocked out completely.

Then, check the drain hose, be sure it doesn't have kinks. You sould be able to find clogs with a flashlight.

If still can't find the source of the problem, then major steps needs to be done. The drain pump may be the problem. Perhaps small bones, pieces of glass or something is jamming the pump.

In case you can find the source from the drain system, I highly recommend you to locate the model and serial number and contact the manufacturer for assistance or the builder. Perhaps the appliance still under warranty and you can get assistance for free from the manufacturer.

Good luck!

Basically, the dishwasher was working fine up until a couple of weeks ago when it just will not fill with water; it drains fine having filled it with water manually and switched on, all the water gets


HI, First I hope you checked that someone has not turned the water off. next, you will find that the inlet of the water is operated by a solenoid valve. This has I would expect, stopped working. You will need to remove the power, then remove the top of the dishwasher. the inlet valve is where the cold water enters the dishwasher. You will need the make and model of the dishwasher, buy the new valve and replace the dead one. it will take longer for the new one to arrive than it will to change them over. Good luck

I have a GE GSD 5130 Dishwasher that leaks about 12 oz of water when it is pumping out the wash water and the rinse water. Its fine during the wash and filling cycle. Is it a seal problem?


This is more likely the hose connection at the drain pump or the pump housing is leaking. You will need to remove the toe kick, place unit into a drain cycle and inspect for a leak. Here is a couple links that should help.

Dishwasher won't drain. (Kenmore 3380957Rev A) It's been not draining that well for a couple of months, but then a couple of weeks ago, it just won't let the last inch of water out. --I can't see in...


The problem could be the pump, the drain hose or the timer. It will not drain if left to sit. The thing to try first is to put a cup of white vinegar in the machine and let it wash. This may remove sludge or scale blocking the strainer. 2nd take the hose loose at the sink drain and see if it is half clogged with grease or food. Check the hose and the nipple. Last, if it does not work take the bottom off the dishwasher. 4 screws and a plate. look for the pump and see if the hoses are clear. Sears will sell you a manual to repair and test this machine at its Parts Central on line

Does not fill or drain.


Test the timer control board and the impeller pump.

pump is tested by energizing. Board is tested using a multimeter.

Observe strictly safety rules.

Dishwasher drain hose cloggs every couple weekes


Do you have a water softener installed in your home and is the water coming to the dishwasher at least 120F? I have some advice you can read about on dishwashers but it really sounds like a water temperature is.

BEEBING CONSTANTLY ADG7460 WHIRLPOOL NOT DRAINING


This dishwasher being only seven weeks old I suggest you contact the store where you bought this unit and tell them to book a service call and send a technition out to solve this,the reason I am suggesting this is that the unit is under guarentee and if you try to repair it will void any guarentee or warrentee that is on the machine.If you do work on it and something big and expensive goes wrong the store(manufacturer) will not honor there guarentee when they see that you worked on it so better to be safe than sorry.If you do not come right with them let me know and we can see what we can do from there.

Frigidaire Dishwasher


Find your main stop cock in your household for cold water supply and make sure it is fully open(anti clockwise).If this makes a difference to rest of house, then your washers pressure should be fine too.If still same problem, check your washers fill hoses have not been shut off.Try this when you set the machine to wash, you should here water pressure when filling.Hope this is helpful to you.
