The problem Is you have a clog between the air-gap on the sink and where it attaches to the drain. If this is a new install and you have it hooked up to the garbage disposal you need to make sure you have knocked out the plug on the disposal.

As for it not pumping out the dishwasher that means the pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned out.

Electrolux professional series not pumping water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Our dishwasher, a kitchenaid kuds230 model isn't clearing the water in the bottom. We had a new disposal installed yesterday and the problem with the dishwasher started afterwards.


The dishwasher's old water is pumped into the same drain that your kitchen sink operates off of. i would recommend that you check the hose that runs out of the dishwasher to the pipes under the sink to make sure that the line is, a) hooked up, b) that it is not crimped and causing the water not to flow.

WHEN RUNNING A CYCLE ON TOP DRAW THE BOTTOM DRAW WILL FILL UP WITH WATER NOT DRAIN


The drain hose going to the kitchen sink is blocked. If you have an insinkerator in your kitchen sink then run it first. Otherwise take the dishwasher hose out from the sink outlet and run straight into sink to see if any difference.

My dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting water in hence dishes not being washed. motor is on. checkedunder sink . what does 'valve on' mean exactly? i don't see an on off valve. please help!


Follow the hot water fill pipe from where it connects to the dishwasher back to where it connects to the wall. (probably under the sink) Most of the time, you will find that pipe attaches to the same hot water (on/off) valve as the hot water side of the kitchen sink.

Confirm that valve is open (righty - tighty, lefty - loosy (open)) If the valve is open at the wall end then:

The next most common cause of no water entering the dishwasher is the solenoid valve on the dishwasher that is electronically opened when the dishwasher needs water to enter for wash or rinse. This valve is located just pass the connection where the fill pipe connects to the dishwasher and will have two wires connected to it.

Please post back here what you find or have more questions, OK?

Dishwasher fills with water when running faucet


The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

Bosch SMS6032GB/20 worked fine the first time but does not pump water inside hence the dishwasher stops. There is 1/4 water already inside on the left hand side.


TRy filling it with the sprayer from the kitchen sink . If it washes properly this way, look at the fill valve and the float assembly. Bosch uses a seperate pump for wash and drain. See if it can drain after the test.

check to see if your dishwasher is level. If it is unlevel the water could run to the front. Hope this helps.

Water isnt draining


Check your drain line and/or drain pump. The drain line should have a high loop at the point prior to where it connects to your drainage system in order to prevent drain water from the kitchen sink from back flowing into the dishwasher. In addition, most drain pumps have a small check valve that prevents this water from backing up as well. However, if you have something lodged in the drain pump (i.e., a toothpick) it can prevent the check valve from closing properly. This can cause water to back up into the dishwasher. You mentioned that the water will not drain. Is the drain pumping runnings at all? Please post back and let me know.
