Dishwasher repair - how to remove hose to flush it out

My dishwasher is not pumping out any water. I have removed and cleaned all filters, and checked the pump from inside, and there does not seem to be a problem there. Could there be a blockage in the outlet hose? I have removed it from the connection to the kitchenpipe, but can't see how to remove it from underneath the machine. Help, please !!!

There is a diverter solenoid valve which diverts pump water to either the washer arms or the drain. It is not working. It is jammed, clogged with foreign matter or the coil is burned out/not receiving power. Follow back from your drain hose to find it. It will have two wires on it. Often, these can be disassembled and cleaned or replaced if the electrical part of it is burned.. The other option is a bad timer which is not opening the valve. That is less likely.

Water still remains in the dishwasher even after cleaning up the drain?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My bosch dishwasher will not drain and makes a humming noise


Humming noise is an indication of your drain motor getting power but not spinning. Either your drain pump is defective and needs to be replaced, or something is stuck in the pump preventing it from draining out the water. Either way you will have to take the dishwasher out and get at the pump from the bottom of the machine.

Maytag MDB5100AWB Dishwasher not draining


More than likely the filter is clogged,remove the spray arm(there is a threaded cap in the center of the arm twist it to the left,then remove the # 15 or 20 torx(star shaped) screws out of the filter cover(around the edges)The filter is round and runs around the outer edge of the pump housing it lifts right out,clean it and reverse the process.It's the most common issue with not draining on this model.
