Kenmore elite dishwasher, less than 1 yr old. Wont drain. I have pressed ''Drain'' on the keypad, motor/pump runs but no drainage. If blocked, where? Can I clear it without having to dismantle and remove...

take a shop vac and attach it to the ond of the drain hose to remove the water and if you are checking the drain pump then it has to be pulled out from under the cabinet.
if the unit is less than a year old just set it up for service it will not cost you anything

My Beko dishwasher model number DWD 4310 has stopped working and now trips the electricity when you turn it on.

Dishwashers are appliances that work in the kitchen to clean dishes. It has rules to govern its use and when those rules are broken, the dishwasher will fail to work. The General Electric dishwasher is a great addition to kitchen appliancesmag-glass_10x10.gif and also has a set of maintenance rules to ensure proper functioning. If for some reason the machine decides to malfunction, there are a few troubleshooting ideas to look into.
  1. Eliminate abnormal odors in your General Electric dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif by removing any food particles found on the bottom of the machine. Locate any plastic, paper or other debris blocking the pump inlet and remove. Unblock the spray arm jets with a paper clip.
  2. Step 2 Do not overload the dishes, as this can cause poor drying. See that the dishes are not touching each other. Make sure the water temperature is between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit for best drying performance.
  3. Step 3 Check under the sink to locate the water valve found on the water line. If your dishwasher is not filling up with water, make sure the valve is open. Turn the valve all the way to the left.
  4. Step 4 Make sure the water pressure isn't too low if the dishwasher isn't filling up completely. Water pressure must be 20 to 120 psi. Make sure that the inlet water hose connected to the dishwasher is not kinked. Remove the toe-kick plate on the front of the bottom of the dishwasher to check the hose.
  5. Step 5 Notice whether or not the dishwasher drains while filling, as this is a sign of either an air gap in the drain hose, or the loop from the floor to prevent backflow of water isn't 32" high. If either problem is located, fix it. Check the water level when the fill cycle has completed. The level should be just under the heating element. If it is not, you will know the water is draining while filling.

D3350 F4 indicator

F4 This is a Fault with the water fill

Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault

1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find that it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. The drain hose must run up to the top of the underside of the counter top then down to the drain. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

My 6 yr old Kitchen Aid dishwasher is leaving food residue

After checking all sprayer arms for clearance, and checking heating element and discharge pump, the problem was solved by replacing the small sprayer arm at the top of the washer. This small arm had popped off some time ago - obviously the water pressure was excessive for the small and unimpressive fastener. Luckily we had saved this piece, which I refastened with a strong aluminum non-corroding small bolt. Presto - now the water distribution is back to design specs, with sufficient water coming out under pressure from the mid level arm. Lesson: always look for the simplest cause first with the simplest solution. TCA

Water into washer

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Get an error code of E1 a few minutes after you start the wash mode. Manuels said that it is a water leakage problem,but it doesnt say where to look or what to do about it.

i would look under the dishwasher.. i believe the modle you have sits in a pan and if it fills with so much water then it will put out that error code. more than likely a mouse chewed a small hole in the drain line.. i would uninstall the dishwasher and start from there.. when i say uninstall i mean pull it out from under the counter.

No power

Hi lushman001

I'm Harvey the Master Plunber.

Your question is: your 3-yr-old dishwasher (Whirlpool 24-inch ) stopped in mid-cycle. A small amount standing water in the bottom of the washer. None of the control panel buttons were lit up and none of them will work. NO POWER

First check all the breakers (or fuses).
Second check the electrical connections. If you're not a qualified electrician or service tech then call one. It"s under the unit behind the kickplate.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
