Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in
it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of
water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because
of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water
dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water
system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running
and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.
Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected
up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink.
but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on
the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the
discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen
effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner
have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the
drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up
with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling.
One heck of a water bill.
Hi, A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing. Thank you !!
if you have an air gap on the sink from the dishwasher and water is leaking out here into the sink instead of the drain it is probably plugged from there to the disposer or "P" trap in the drain line,also check the sump screen and down in there for food particles still there
ck the float it may be comming under the door . if water is still in tank after cycle / clean the screen in the bottom it is a lift out basket . ck for resstriction in drain line . all of thes will cause over fill and flooding . your model may have a pressure sw . sometimes food gets in the air line / remove tube and blow out .. mm
The first thing to try is to clear out debris from strainer area, you may need a Philips head screw driver for this. Clear out and then attempt to put the unit through its cycle.
The second thing I would try, is unattach drain hose from drain to sink, either blow in it or use a blower side of shop vac to force air into the hose. Reset dishwasher, and try again.
Not knowing how handy you are, you can pull the dishwasher out, please turn off circuit before doing so, also make sure you have towels handy. Unattached drain hose at base of drainage pump. Clear out hose and remove debris on bottom of pump. Reattach the hose and run through cycle..
If these do not work your issue is with a bad pump.
