Danby Dishwasher stuck in drain cycle after wrong soap use

I have a portable Danby Dishwasher DDW1805W. It worked great until someone accidentally put liquid dishwasher soap in it. It made lots of suds and overflowed, then it drained itself, but would not move beyond a drain cycle. I added fresh cold water and washed the inside several times so there are no more visible suds. The water pumps out every time, but the pump stays on even after the dishwasher is empty, regardless of where the dial is, or with moving the dial manually. It seems to be stuck in the "need to pump out" mode!
Any suggestions?

There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.

My Danby dishwasher repairman told me that there is a reset button somewhere inside the dishwasher (unavailable to user, supposed to be reset by repairman) that is triggered by too much detergent/sudsing. Apparently it is also triggered by turning the dial to try to bypass the dry cycle. I did the latter, since I wanted to save electricity and air-dry the dishes. Reset button went off. Am trying to figure out how to reset it myself. Anyone know? It took the last repairman (free, since it was still under warranty) only 5 minutes to reset it.

18 month old kitchen aid kudc10fxss leaks water at bottom of door


Someone may've accidentally put liquid dishsoap rather than dishwasher soap into the fill cup. The bubbling will cause lots of foam to rise up above the float-switch without actually raising the switch (shutting off the water supply). Lots of helpers on the web recommended draining, wiping out the foam, pouring in a cup of vinegar and a handful of salt and running the rinse cycle a couple of times. It worked for me!

Dishwasher suds up and leaks during wash


Suds in a dishwasher usually come from using too much soap or the wrong kind. Soap can build up over times causing problems. First start a cycle.Do not add detergent or any dishes.When it starts washing, pour a cup of vegetable oil directly into the tub. This will cut the existing soap suds. You may need to try this a couple time before the dishwasher will drain. After all suds have been removed, load you dishwasher and start a cycle filling the detergent cup up half way. If it goes through the cycle with no problems, you should be all set. Still have the problem? A rinse aid dispenser that dispenses too much rinse aid will also cause the dishwasher to suds up. You can remove the dispenser from the door, flush it out and reinstall. Make sure you turn the circuit breaker off before taking the door apart. After rinsing it out, do not add rinse aid. Try the dishwasher and see if the problem goes away. I've seen people accidentally put liquid dish detergent in dispensers too. A dishwasher that has suds is apt to leak. Fix your suds issue and you most likely will fix you leak

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

The dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain


Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!
