Sounds like two seperate problems. firsst water running from under your machine might be a bad seal, or water could be backing up the drain line. i would guess that it is a plumbing problem because of theissue with water in the sink. have a plumber snake out the drain lines and the problem with the washer should disappear.

What would cause a gurgling sound at the kitchen sink when no water is running anywhere in the house?


the waste disposal system for your house was installed by a person who was not competent to do the job and didn't make allowances for sufficient air pipes in the system or placed them on the wrong side of the traps
I would have an engineer inspect the installation to pin point the problem so that what you have doesn't occur and if it is installed contrary to plan and engineering requirements seek legal redress from the plumber that did the job

Dish washer water is clogged up


sounds like the pump is running but clogged. You might want to 1-remove as much water as possible by cupping it out manually,2- turn the breaker off and ensure no power, 3- take off bottom cover, 4-locate drain line (it will go into cabinet under kitchen sink-hooked up to sink line more than likely) and take off pump on dishwasher end and take off sink. you can remove the hose and see if and where clog is located.Grease is sometimes a culprit or other bits and pieces of food build up. You should also investigate the area where the drain line hooks into the unit and ensure that is clear. reconnect hose under sink and fish thru hole in side of cabinet to back of dishwasher. someone else or you can then reach under dishwasher to reconnect line to dishwasher. make sure drain is hose is connected properly at both ends! You'll probably need a phillips head screwdriver, 1/4" nutdriver and a pair of pliers

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Why won't my washer won't spin or drain


If the water is not removed first, the spin will not occur. Do you hear the pump run when it starts the spin cycle? If nothing, the pump may be jammed with debris, or the motor itself may have failed. If the motor runs, but no water comes out of the drain, then look for a kinked drain hose (inside the cabinet) or possibly a stray sock lodged in the drain outlet under the outer tub. Sometimes the pump impeller will come loose from the motor shaft causing loss of pump action. Hope that some of this helps!

My stainless steel dishwasher smells


You need to check to see if the drain line runs from the dishwasher pump to either a "T" on your kitchen sink drain or if it connects directly to the garbage disposal. Either connection is okay. However, water can run downhill from either connection to your dishwasher. To prevent dirty water from your sink or garbage disposal from running downhill to the dishwasher, you may have to install a dishwasher air gap. This can be purchased at a appliance parts store or a home improvement store like a Home Depot or Lowes. It is a "Y" shaped device that should be installed above the dishwasher drain line connection under the sink. As water will not run up hill, you need to make sure that the Air Gap is installed higher than the drain line's connection under the sink. "The Air Gap device should be mounted as high as you can under the sink."

After washing dishes in the kitchen sink, water fills up and stands in the dishwasher and drains only after running the dishwasher


Hi, There is a drain hose under the sink that goes to the dishwasher. Make sure that hose is raised up higher then the drain pipe for you sink. It is just draining into the dishwasher because the drain hose is to low.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

No water coming in after sink blockage


Sounds simple , but the plumber may have shut the dishwasher water off. Valve is probably under the sink or near the machine in the basement or crawl space. Good luck.

Blocked sink maybe equalls non spin or drain of washer


It depends on where the sink is blocked, and how the washing machine plumbing is set up.

If the sink is blocked in the p-trap under the sink, and the washing machine does not drain to that trap, then it's a separate problem.

That being said, if this is in fact the way the washing machine is plumbed, then it indicates that there is not an air gap between the washing machine hose and the drain. There must be an air gap or the washer will likely not drain, regardless of how it is plumbed to the sink or not.

Reply back with further information, or if you need clarification. But yes, the sink being plugged could be the cause of the washer problem, or may just be coincidental and not have anything to do with it.
