    Our dishwasher will not drain. I have hit the cancel/drain button and it sounds like it's doing something but when you open the door, it's still has lots of standing water at the bottom.

I had this problem too & found the discharge hose was clogged. To fix it I had to pull out the diswasher , disconnect the drain hose and blow it out.

Dishwasher not draining

The problem is a clog in the hose or the check valve from the drain pump. I will post back shortly with directions to unclog it.

Seeing where it will work when disconnected from drain, i would be looking at the house drain as the problema nd not the dishwasher. You can check these things.
1) a clogged pipe under sink that it connects to
2)do you hava airgap,its a piece that goes on the sink and hasa chrome cover about 2-3 inches tall,if ya have one of those(not all drains do) reomve cap by pulling off and depending on brand of air gap unscrew inner cap or push in the 2 tabs and pull out inner piece to check for a blockage
3)if you dont have airgap is the drin hose under the sink always slooping down? at on point the drain hose should be higher that the level of the peice on the drain it attaches too,with corrogated drain hose its easy to pull it up and attach it under sink so at one point the hose is higher that the drain(disposer) nozzle

Good luck, i hope this helps

My Bosch dishwasher is driving me crazy! When it finishes a wash cycle it beeps twice every 10 minutes until the door is opened. We can't run the dishwasher at night after dinner unless we're SURE we...

Hello there,

It would help to know the model number of the dishwasher, but on many Bosch dishwashers, you can switch the cycle cycle completion signal off as follows:

1. While holding the right-hand CANCEL/DRAIN button, also press and hold the ON/OFF button
2. When the LED above the CANCEL/DRAIN button illuminates and the beeping starts, release both buttons
3. Press the right CANCEL/DRAIN button repeatedly until the beeping tone is at the desired volume, i.e. silent!
4. Press the "ON/OFF" button again to set the volume.

On models with the wash cycle buttons on the top edge of the door, the CANCEL/DRAIN buttons aren't always explicitly labelled CANCEL/DRAIN. These buttons are also labelled RESET on some models.

On models with 3 and 4 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the third button when reading from left to right. On models with 5 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the fourth button when reading from left to right.

Please try the above then let me know if you need further assistance. Please state the model number or series (i.e. Integra) of your washer if/when replying.

Hope this helps.

Whirlpool dishwasher won't start

I have had the same problem with my dishwasher. I.e., the buttons don't respond (no LED) when you press them. Only the "Cancel/Drain" light works and the dishwasher reacts to cancel/drain. I found a diagnostic in the kick panel that has you press; "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal" within 6 seconds and the washer goes through a diagnostic. All of the tests perform as they should and at the end the washer works again. I don't know why unless doing this resets the circuit board. Does anyone know?

if you hit the stop cancel button and you hear a hum then you have a clog. in the pipe somewhere. usually ing the "air gap" in the sink. if you do not hear a hum when you hit the stop cancel button then the drain pump is bad and needs to be replaced.

Water slowly filling cabinet when dishwasher is off.

leaking valve - to check, turn water off and see if it still happens
if appliance is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then when you empty sink, some of the water finds its way into the dishwasher via the drain hose. to cure, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck

Dishwasher has lights but won't do anything

Jacksonville, did you remove the knock-out for the drain on the disposer? Use a screw driver and punch it out. Let us know if that did the back.
