Have you recently installed a new garbage disposel? (forget to knock out the plug?) or your pump could be clogged. first thing i would check out is the drain hose going into the sink. i have unclogged problems there.

Not draining


Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened? These steps will walk you through solving basic DW problems.

1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.

Good luck.

SHY66CO5UC wont drain all the water


Your float might be stuck.

Check on the bottom of the DW basin for an item that looks like a mushroom. Gently pull up on it. Does it move freely?

Check for debris in air gap and bottom of DW basin.

Good luck.

Water not pumped out of dishwasher


To cut a long story short, lower the drain pipe as close to the floor as you can. Some dish washers have a non return rubber which holds the water in the cabinet until asked to drain.Meaning water wont just flow out with pipe being low.(Im assuming the drain pump is operating correctly).Check if this alteration makes any difference.
