My gld6500l dishwasher worked fine, then my husband replaced a broken garbage disposal. The next day I ran my dishwasher and it now will not drain. Coincidence, or could the two be related?

Yes probably a connection. The dishwasher drain connects to the the Garbage disposal . If the line is kinked then the dishwasher will not drain. Plus the dishwasher has to have a plug knocked out where the drain line goes into the garbage disposal. I am sure this is your problem.

Water from garbage disposal backing up


Check to see if there is a loop in the drain line. The drain line coming out of the disposal has to have a loop in it that is higher than the disposal. That way water can't drain back into the dishwasher.

Frigidaire dishwasher has standing water that did not drain


Frigidaire dishwashers have two pumps. one for wash and one for drain. But if your
dishwasher is connected to a garbage disposal and the disposal is not working then the
dishwasher will not drain. Otherwise the drain pump on the dishwasher has failed
OR the line itself is plugged (sometimes the port on the disposal gets gunked up and
will not allow draining). If you have replaced the disposal recently
the "knockout" may still be in the garbage disposal port.
One last thought, if you have
a small tomato paste can sized item next to the faucet that seems to serve no
purpose, this is called an "air gap". They can also get gunked up as well and prevent
draining of the dishwasher. They are inexpensive to replace or can be cleaned.
Hope this is helpful.

Replaced disposal and now dishwasher isnt draining


It sounds like you've done everything fine. I would disconnect the dishwasher drain line from the disposal, have a bucket ready and see if it will drain. It's possible that there is a plug or something else left in the disposal opening that is blocking the water. If the dishwasher won't drain with the hose off of the disposal, there is a problem with the dishwasher that has nothing to do with your disposal installation. Hope this helps and good luck!

GE DISWASHER - PDW7300J00WW- WATER STANDING IN BASE OF UNIT - WATER DOESN'T DRAIN. CHECKED HOSE TO DISPOSAL AND TO UNIT IT IS FREE OF OBSTRUCTIONS? wHAT NEXT?


Check the following to address this issue--


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Oe code on LG dishwasher following garbage disposal replacement


Hi. I just had the same trouble. Your garbage disposal comment there gave me an idea. The drain hose from your dishwasher likely goes to the garbage disposal and then out the drain. My hose had a little blockage at the joint where the hose goes into the disposal. I was able to clear it just by giving it a wiggle....all is well now.

Good luck.

Problem with my dishwasher not draining at all.....


Has this Dishwasher ever drained at all? In installations the need to have a drain line attached to a disposal system is top on the list, how ever some times the connection is made but a small plug in the disposal on the inside of the wall of the grinding chamber has to be knocked out to allow for proper draining of the dishwasher water.

Garbage Disposal backing up in dishwasher


Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck
