Hi, if you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump.

Take care

Model number KUDS30IVBL0. When in the normal wash cycle the machine will go through the first wash cycle then drains. But the pump keeps running even after all the water has drained from the unit.


if you just let it go will pump shut off by itself after a few more minutes ?? or do you have to intervene as it will go that way all day long ?

How long is the light wash cycle suppossed to run and does the options cycle need to be run too? i have put my machine on light cycle and it runs back and forth from sensing to wash .. stops and goes back...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes it is normal. The length of the cycle depends on the water temperature entering the unit and the options selected. The unit has a sensor that checks the water constantly until it is clean. A normal cycle on this unit with options selected can last two hours. And stopping the unit and opening the door extends the time also.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Our whirlpool sport will not drain, 5d code has appeared. what can we do


SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
Possible Causes/Procedure
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance


The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

Wahing machine will not wash


the entire agitator is not moving during the wash??? or just the top section that looks like a big plastic corkscrew???
or is the unit actually just filling with water, making the motor running noises and going thru the motions of running a cycle yet not actually moving anything within the unit, then draining out as normal??
if just the top section of the agitator is free spinning instead of ratcheting as normal you'll need to replace the agitator dogs if present.
if however the units just filling and draining of water with no inner movement then more likely the drive coupling is bad and needs replacement..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

So water leaks out onto floor-Jennair side by side


THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.

Won't get off drain/cancel cycle


It sounds to me like you may have a float switch that is registering water in the unit when you try to start it. If the unit "registers"that there is water in the sump before starting a new cycle, it will try to drain it before starting. The switch is located under the lower acess panel. Sometimes, you can bounce the float (depending on model) inside the unit a couple times and dislodge it. If not, you will have to pull the lower acess panel and check the switch out.

LXGH E5 Code


I need to check my codes to be positive. And I'll check them this weekend. But, I believe E5 is from excess water in the unit, and so it won't go into rinse and add more water.

First and most common -- the drain hose, at the back of the unit is kinked. The unit gets pushed back against the wall and kinks the line.

Second, your probes are dirty. The ones in the back right corner detect water level. Clean them with a green scrungee even if they look clean.

Good luck - Mike
