There is a lot of debris collected at the in-port of the pump so the water could not be drained. Access to the this port to clean out so water could be drained out by the pump. Unplug power for 24 hours to reset back to original stage. After clean out, plug it back then read the manual to set it drain manually per diagnostic instruction on the manual.

Not finishing cycle


Is it draining out the water?? Dishwashers fill, spray, and drain more than several times during a cycle. After starting a cycle, let the unit fill, start spraying, and then cancel the cycle--listen for the drain pump activating and pumping out the water. If water is not being drained properly(within a certain time limit), the unit will error code out and stop. Also, make sure the filter is clear--if it gets clogged with "muck", enough water won't be sprayed onto the dishes properly, the pump will require too much energy to try to pump water, the control will sense this and shut down the unit to protect it.

Water does not flow through the drain


hello,
~Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose.
~Check pump impeller for damage
~Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out Make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
~Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause.
~If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
~Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
~Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off. (if yes, replace the inlet valve).

My whirlpool dishwasher is ocasionally filling back up with water, whether the door is open or closed, and regardless of of control panel being lit. It happens, then leaks out the front. If i run the...


Greetings,

in most instances the water inlet valve is leaking..this is the water valve that brings water into the dishwasher...its possible, the drain water is running back into the d/w from the drain hose not installed properly...or there is a valve that lets water only go one way..this could be stuck open from food or object.....Bruce Denton

Kenmore Model @16969990 Washing water doesn't pump out, cycle doesn't finish, attemptes to run other cycles default to "normal wash"


The drain cycle does not complete as the drain pump is not working the pump out the water. So unless the drain level comes down to reset the water level controller the program does not progress further.
So check the voltage during the drain cycle if voltage is present then the drain pump is faulty if not the main controller is faulty.
replace accordingly.

  1. Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit ( there are others, this is just an example )
  2. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  3. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  4. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  5. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
  6. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
