Question about Dishwashers

Frigidaire FDP635RFR3 wont drain.

I have checked the drain hose connected to main drain line below sink, and it is clear. I also ran dishwasher with drain hose disconnected from the sink drain pipe, and no water is flowing thru or being forced thru at any point in the cycle. Where IS the water going? It only fills the bottom of the dishwasher, it doesnt come spilling out at the end of the cycle when I open the door. Is there another 'drain' location?

Theres a drain pump located at the bottom of the unit if you follow the hose from the pump then to the drain if your unit isnt draining you might have to call for service from a technician to have them change your drain pump. If the water is just sitting inside the unit and when u start the unit it should fill with water again.Also if you have a cancel function by pressing this you will make the unit drain if you dont hear anything when u press the cancel button you definetly need a pump

Water not draining


There are several components to check when your dishwasher refuses to drain water. You need to check your drain hose, your pump assembly, timer, motor and drain valve and/or solenoid.
Most of the time it is the drain hose that is responsible for such problem. To check the drain hose, please follow the steps below:
  1. Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other check. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
  2. Before you can check your dishwasher's drain hose for a blockage, you have to gain access to the hose. First remove the lower kickplate panel located below the door. This panel can be removed by removing a couple of screws that are located either above or below the panel. On some models, the dishwasher door has to be open to access and remove the screws, but then closed in order to remove the panel.
  3. With the panel removed, locate the drain hose. It is connected to the pump located below the lower spray arm. The drain hose runs from the pump to the sink drain, or to the air gap on top of the sink. There is a second hose leading from the pump that is a recirculation hose. When you are checking the drain hose for a blockage, you should check the recirculation hose as well.
  4. Place a shallow pan below the hose to catch any spills. Disconnect the drain hose form the pump by pinching the wire clamp with pliers and then sliding the clamp up the hose. Remove the hose from the pump assembly and wiggle the hose in various locations. This may help to loosen the blocked debris.
  5. Try running water through the hose to loosen and unblock the debris. A garden hose at full pressure is efficient to use for this task. Now disconnect the recirculation hose and check it for blockage in the same manner.
  6. Once you have successfully removed any and all blockages from either or both hoses, reconnect each hose to the dishwasher. Replace the clamps, and replace the lower panel. Reconnect the dishwasher's power supply and run the dishwasher to make sure it is running properly.
To replace the hose, please follow the steps below:
  1. Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other repair. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
  2. Before you can replace your dishwasher's drain hose, you have to gain access to the hose. First remove the lower kickplate panel located below the door. This panel can be removed by removing a couple of screws that are located either above or below the panel. On some models, the dishwasher door has to be open to access and remove the screws, but then closed in order to remove the panel.
  3. With the panel removed, locate the drain hose. It is connected to the pump located below the lower spray arm. The drain hose runs from the pump to the sink drain, or to the air gap on top of the sink.
  4. Place a shallow pan below the hose to catch any spills. Disconnect the drain hose form the pump by pinching the wire clamp with pliers and then sliding the clamp up the hose. Remove the hose from the pump.
  5. Reconnect on end of a new hose to the dishwasher's pump assembly and the other end of the new hose to the sink drain.
  6. Replace the clamps, and replace the lower panel. Reconnect the dishwasher's power supply and run the dishwasher to make sure it is functioning properly.
That should do the job for you. And if that does not do it, then it means the problem is from other components of the dishwasher.
Hope this information helped.

How to remove waste hose from machine?


1 Turn off the circuit breaker that controls the dishwasher.
2 Open the dishwasher door. Locate the two small screws holding the bottom valance trim piece. Remove the screws and the valance, revealing the lower pump assembly and drain-hose connection.
3 Remove the hose clamp. Disconnect the drain line by pulling the hose.
4 Find the other end of the drain line under the sink; it is connected to the drain tail piece or the garbage disposal. Remove the hose clamp and disconnect the drain line. The dishwasher drain hose is now disconnected at both ends.
5 Pull the dishwasher drain hose into the sink base through the hole between the dishwasher and the sink base.
6 Take the dishwasher drain hose outside or to a wash sink. Run hot water through the line to clean and unclog it. When you see water running freely through the hose, then it is clean. If the hose cannot be cleaned, replace it with a new drain hose of the same size and length.
7 Feed the clean dishwasher drain hose back to its original configuration. Reconnect both hose clamps. Reinstall the valance, turn on the circuit breaker and test-run the dishwasher.

Lights are flashing with OE flashing stopped washing


OE is a drainage problem. Check all lines, and drains for kinks.blockage. Ours was blocked in the T connection where the drain goes into the sink( in the black ABS sink part.) Used a screwdriver to simply clear the t connection with the drain hose disconnected.... ran the DW( where it fills w/ water) ,then turn off, and put the drain hose into a bucket... if its pumping water out well, then it could be the sink drain.
If not... a line somewhere is plugged.

Drain problem


Hi,
The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.
To access the drain hose 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.
The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.
If checking for leaks, feel the hoses where they connect to the pump, for wetness and check the ground right under the connections. If they are wet, it may be a loose or improperly mounted clamp, a damaged pump housing or a leak in the hose itself.
If checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.
Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through (such as spraying a garden hose through it at full pressure). Disconnect the recirculation hose and check it in the same way.
Reconnect the hoses and replace the clamps. Replace the lower panel and restore electricity to the dishwasher.
Thank you!
