    My Bosch dishwasher drains once the cycle is over. However, in a few hours, water accumulates at the bottom of the dishwasher. Need to use the last stage of the cycle, namely CL, again to drain it.

    The problem repeats.

    Any suggestions?

    my whirlpool dishwasher doesn't drain. also when i turn it to wash it stays on in the same spot and never advances to rinse or dry. i actually ran all night long on wash cycle.

    Haier integrated dishwasher isnt washing dishes properly and the salt tray and food catching unit at the bottom are full of water when the cycle is over. The detergent is also not being released or ends up not being used and sitting at the bottom of the unit. DW12CBE4 code is written on top of the unit. Cant find the manual. Ive tried running cleaning agents through, cleaning all the detachable parts, cleaning the arms etc. The machine is only 3 years old however i was told it might be a problem with the pump and in this case i would be better off replacing the unit as it would amount to much the same price.

Water will not drain out of the bottom of dishwahser


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Hello, an OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confirm that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

The water does not fully drain out of the dishwahser


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

You either have a blocked drain or pump or check to see if the water tap is turned on. It means that either the water wont pump out or fill with water. Good luck

INDESIT DISHWAHSER DG5100W


If it does not fill properly to a certain level, the heater will NOT come on, so you need to solve the filling problem. Is the drain hose raised sufficiently? Is the pressure hose blocked? Does it let water in and then just stop? Oshie
