SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump

SOURCE: Water Will not Drain

It could be cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine,but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube from any obstruction. Good luck !

Hi,
the first things to look for, are the simplist faults.
1:) Check that the Outlet Hose-Pipe Isn,t Blocked-Kinked Or Bent.
2:) Check that the Pump, is not clogged/Blocked or not-functioning.

Hope this helps you start, your fault-finding successfully.

Hotpoint fdw60 4th and 5th lights flashing - water wont drain away - any advice please??


That is a trouble code from the dishwasher indicating the computer ran into an unexpected problem.

This link has a pretty technical discussion of your exact problem: http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/forumsphpbb3/dishwasher-forum/hotpoint-fdw60-error-codes-fast-eco-t23513.html

Your problem is a "drain time out error", which means the dishwasher waited for the water to pump out and it never happened (sounds right!).

There are a few things you can check, but unless you're very handy you will probably need a professional:
1) Is the drain line from the dishwasher to the drain plugged by anything? It could be clogged with debris that's been washed off your dishes over the years.
2) Is the drain inside your dishwasher plugged? You'll have to scoop out the water inside to see.

If neither of those, it sounds like either the onboard computer has failed and needs to be replaced, or the pump is plugged or wrecked. In either case, paying for the repairman's time will probably be more expensive than the parts themselves.

Kenmore dishwasher is not draining properly.


Float valve is jammed.

Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath.

The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.

Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base. If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve. First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

Hotpoint DWT10 Dishwasher error codes/lights


food stuck in drain pump remove and clean out or scoop out - soak up all water then fill with 3 or 4 hot litres of water . cancel programme , start new one ( first thing unit does is switch to drain cycle ).
Then rock machine back and forth - this sometimes frees jammed debris thus pumping out of machine.
This works for me i have done it several times and it works

You have a blockage in your drain pump. Remove all filters and scoop out as much water as you can from the unit. Check in the bottom for any objects stuck there. Some models have a cover on the bottom inside the unit, which once removed, will expose the drain pump impeller. If yours does, remove the cover(usually 1 screw only) and free the drain pump impeller. NB: DO NOT REMOVE THE SCREWS WHICH HOLD THE BASE TUB IN PLACE! These are the screws on the edge of the white plastic "bowl" inside the unit. The drain pump cover will be INSIDE this bowl and will be quite small, no more than 5cm dia.... If this does not work, you will have to remove the drain pump from the bottom or front of the unit to get the blockage out. Oshie
