How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Will not drain


Hello Keith, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Often when a dishwasher does not drain, it is because the drain hose may be clogged or you have a faulty drain pump. First, I recommend cleaning the glass trap that is located in the center of the unit designed to collect pieces of broken straws, bones, glass, etc. The filter can be removed for cleaning by simply grasping the handle and lift it out. Once you empty the filter, you may wash it with warm soapy water and allow it dry. Then place filter back. However, if you continue to have water left in the sump and the dishwasher is making a grinding noise, then it is recommended that the drain motor be diagnosed. You can locate a certified technician directly through the manufacturer website or in your local directory.

Dishwasher wont pump


Hi - Two things to consider...when was the last time the filter was cleaned? Most dishwashers have a glass trap located in the center of the filter designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. Simply grasp handle, lift out, empty and place it back. Is the unit making a grinding noise? If so, contact a professional because you may possibly have a defective drain motor.

Our 2 year old Miele dishwasher (G1182/G2182) makes a strange popping/grinding glass noise when draining. We used 1 bottle of Finish Intensive care & clean with no improvement. Any suggestions?


there is a piece of debris in the drain pump. remove the triple filter from the bottom ( the one you are supposed to clean every week to keep debris out of the drain pump) under that filter and to the left hand side you will see the non return valve. squeeze the tab and pull the non return valve out. remove the broken glass or whatever is stuck in the drain pump impeller. replace the non return valve. replace the filter. if you need a picture go to mieleusa.com, and search for your owners manual. it has step by step tutorials on how to free an obstruction from your drain pump.

A glass broke and pieces of glass fell inside of the washer strainer module. How do you remove this screw that sits on top so that the glass inside can be vacuumed out. The screw moves but does not...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I think this should help and be just what you need to get to that piece of glass and remove the spray arm so you do not have to call a technician...and maybe more.


You`ll need to follow these steps to access and clean it. (The key with the spray arm nut is to hold it while you spin the spray arm, not the nut...provided it is a KUDS02 series dishwasher as stated).

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out. This should allow you to remove the broken glass.


If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Making grinding noise when started


Hi,

Sound like you have a bit of broken glass or a fruit seed caught in the drain pump. Remove the filter and in the sump there should be a non return valve. Remove this and have a look for any foreign particles. Start the unit up without the filter and non return valve in or the bottom basket. Allow to run for about 10 sec. then open the door and hopefully the unit has thown out the noisey culprit. Have good look around the base and sump of the unit. Glass is also hard to spot as well. hope this helps.

Bosch dishwasher wont drain. At end of cycle is full of cloudy water.


It is possible if you have broken a glass recently that the piece of glass has made its way to the drain pump impeller. You need to remove bottom basket. Remove the filter strainer clamp by rotating CCW. There may be another round filter under the strainer (depending on model). Then with a torque screwdriver remove one screw which holds the plastic pump cover on. Remove the pump cover and pay close attention to the pump impeller. Does it rotate by finger movement? If not it could be jamed with a piece of broken glass. You must remove any obstruction to allow the impeller to turn. I usually force a paper towel piece (half piece while rotating the impeller by finger to allow the paper towel to bring up any obstruction below the impeller) Reassemble the cover and filters carefully and make sure the final strainer clamp aligns correctly with its marks. This insures nothing will make its way to the impeller in future.

Not cleaning dishes especiialy the ones on top rack. Found some broken glass pieces in bottom. No obstructions in line leading up to top washer. It looks like the pump is not pumping enough water pressure...


If you remove the filter in the sump area underneath the lower dish rack (removing the screws to do so) you may find debris blocking/jaming the impeller area. Be very careful of almist invisible broken glass. Inspect the impeller to make sure it is properly in place and not damaged.
Confirm that the spray arms are not pluged.
If problems continue and the impeller is in good shape, the pump motor may be failing. Please get back to me if problems persist but also include the Make and Model number whe nyou do.

There should be torx screws or 1/4 inch screws holding the filter down to the bottom , you should know when you get there because you cant go any further. good luck.
