Dishwasher wont drain

I tried blowing air through the drain hose back toward the inside of the washer but it is either plugged or there is a backflow preventer.
Any advice is appreciated. Kenmore Quietguard 2 about 3 yrs old.

Hi,

There is a check valve that would prevent you from blowing back into the machine. I would recommend taking that hose and putting it into a bucket, turn the machine on and see if it drains, if so you have an issue with the house drain if not then take the hose off the machine. You can take the toe panel off with a couple of screws and the drain hose should be right up front. Have lots of towels ready to catch anything.

I want to install an RO unit. For the RO faucet connection I would like to use the air gap connection on the sink that connects to my GLD5960 SS dishwasher. Can I get rid of the air gap connection from...


Hello,
The airgap prevents the water from the sink backflowing into the dishwasher. You could espically if your dishwasher hasa corragated plastic drain hose attach it under the sink so at one point the hose is higher that the nozzle of the disposer it connects to so the hose is still higher that the level of the nozzle and water wont backfill into the dishwasher.

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.

My glasses come out of my dishwasher with gritty, sandy residue? what could cause this problem?


Usually this issue is related to drain issues. Check for plugged screens and filters. also look for kinked drain hose. Does the hose route to just under the counter, and then back DOWN do the drain hook up? If not, you can have backflow.

I replaced a disposal and now when I run the washer cycle the used water shoots out the drain that is on top of the sink. It didn't shoot out that drain while the old disposal was working and the dishes...


The new disposer has a plug inside the dishwasher nipple that you must knock out. The dishwasher hose nipple is plugged so water won't leak out if you don't have a dishwasher connected. You must take a flathead screwdrivers and knock out the plug inside the nipple with a hammer or something. Make sure you don't leave the plug inside! The air gap is designed to prevent water from siphoning back into the dishwasher. With the disposal's drain connection blocked, the water exits through the air gap!

Water wont drain after wash!! Dishes wont dry all the way also


HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

My dishwasher doesnt drain and the drain button is flashing


ok if it doesnt drain properly... it means the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up.
check these: Drain line/air gap Pump Drain valve and/or solenoid Belt Motor Timer

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain.
Air gaps are installed in the drainage system to prevent the discharge from the dish washer to enter the sewer system and the contaminated water to drain back into the dishwasher after the pump stops.
When we install a dish washer we loop the discharge hose as high up under the cabinet as we can and secure it with pipe straps.
This creates a air gap so that when the pump stops nothing from the drainage system can flow back into the dish washer.


Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line.
If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

we ll now see how to check the pump

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm.Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller.
The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port.

if u see any of these parts broken u wud need to replace themnow the next thing to check wud be the drain valveMany dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid.When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain.Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly.To access the drain valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel.It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Look for a water hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose should lead to the drain valve. now we need to check the motor ... now u might not be required to come uptill this iam giving u instructions just incase
If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week,you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors just can't be serviced.also refer the following links http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dishwasher/check/airgap.php

Hi, I bought a brand new Whirlpool Gold GU2275XTVS that had the same problem after I installed it (standing water in the bottom after the cycle--although it would drain out if I pressed the drain/cancel button...not sure if that applies to you). It's less than a month old and still under warranty, so we had a technician come look at it but he couldn't figure it out. I've been searching these appliance repair forums for answers but found none that applied to my specific problem. I'll share what I found in a second, but first here are the most common problems associated with slow/not draining: 1) your air gap (if you have one) is clogged, 2) your drain hose is kinked or clogged, 3) your garbage disposal drain plug was never removed or the disposal drain is clogged, 4) your pump is damaged or doesn't run at all. There are a lot of appliance forum Q&As that address these issues. If you checked each of the above problems and still have the problem--especially if you have a brand new dishwasher and clogs should not be an issue--then read on...

I unhooked my drain hose and tried the simple "blow test" (just blow into the hose to see how difficult it is to force any water into your drain/disposal). If there is a lot of water in the hose it will be difficult at first, but after blowing water out it will get progressively easier. I discovered that it wasn't necessarily difficult to blow air through the hose, although oddly it got MORE difficult the harder I tried to blow air through. I then realized that the check valve (keeps drain water from returning to the dishwasher) was inside my drain hose instead of attached to the pump. If you have the same Whirlpool drain hose, the check valve is just past the first elbow of the drain hose where it attaches to the pump. I couldn't see it, but when I stuck my finger around the bend I could feel the valve. What's more, the valve flap was toward me--which means that it was (at least partially) closing off as water tried to drain out of the dishwasher instead of closing off any backflow. It came from the factory like this; luckily it was an easy fix. I simply pushed the valve flap through to the other side of the valve hole. Problem solved--it drains like a champ.

Hope this helps.
