Dishwasher is not draining

I dismanled the drain and couldn't find anything that obstructs the dishwasher's drain. Still, it does not drain any water and seems that the pump is broken. Not sure if I can repair it easily or if I have to get a new one

Hi,

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.


Thank you !!

My dishwasher displays a note h 03 what does that mean


I think that means it's not draining water correctly. My older portable dishwasher wasn't draining right and I found a small piece of white plastic had lodged under the float at the bottom which caused the dishwasher to think it wasn't draining. Look at the bottom of the dishwasher to find the float, usually round in shape and moves a little up and down when you gently pull on it, look for anything obstructing it's movement.

My dishwasher will not drain out completely. there is always some water left on the bottom which becomes smelly and slimy and makes the dishes anything but clean.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As the water did not drain completely then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for any clogs/obstructions, if you have already cleaned these parts and the unit will not work then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water in the bottom and not working


Check for a clogged drain (e.g.: via drain hose), or a water pump malfunction due to foreign obstruction (e.g.: glass, etc).

Note: If you changed a food waste disposer (kitchen sink area) and did not remove "plug" from disposer for dishwasher drain hose (assuming dishwasher drain hose connected to food waste disposer), then water cannot drain from dishwasher.

Dishwasher does not pump water out at the end of it's cycle


First check that there isn't anything blocking the drain area inside the bottom of the dishwasher. Sometimes plastic wrap, a small Tupperware, etc. top gets sucked against the drain and blocks discharge. If nothing is there, (look really good, by getting out as much water as possible!!!). If nothing there, see if you have an "air-break" installed at the kitchen sink, this prevents backflow from the sink drain back into the dishwasher, check it by removing the decorative cover and see if it is clean and has no obstructions blocking water flow.

Another thing to check, is if you recently had a new disposal installed, it's possible that the dishwasher inlet was never "punched out" to allow for the dishwasher to drain thru the disposal. If none of those, continue with the investigation!

Check to see if some broken glass might have worked its' way into the drain area, beneath the drain discharge guard. You'll have to remove the cover, some are just clipped in place while others have a screw holding them in place.

If still nothing, it is possible that something has worked its' way all the way into the discharge pump section and you'll need to remove the dishwasher from under the counter to get at the pump section.

Normally when the dishwasher is in the pump out sequence, you can hear the pump motor and impeller spinning, if you can't, then proceed with removing the dishwasher and disconnect the power or shut off the breaker to it. It is quite possible that something has jammed the discharge impeller and is preventing pump out. Again, if you can hear the motor and impeller running, it could still have an obstruction. Bucket and towels will be needed to soak up all any water that you couldn't remove before pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop.

If there is no obstruction in the discharge pump section and the discharge value (usually a simple rubber flap) is moving freely, then it could be the pump out solinoid (an electronic valve that opens the discharge port for pumping out water when the dishwasher is done washing and is signaled to drain. You should be able to cycle the dishwasher through a short cycle (wash & rinse) to see if everything is working OK. You'll need to reconnect the power, water inlet and discharge (drain) lines first to check this option.

Sig amount of water remains at the bottom after a wash


First check that there isn't anything blocking the drain area inside the bottom of the dishwasher.

Normally when the dishwasher is in the pump out sequence, you can hear the pump motor and impeller spinning. It is possible that you have a partial obstruction and will have to remove the pump housing to get at the problem

Bucket and towels will be needed to soak up all any water that you couldn't remove before pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop.

If there is no obstruction in the discharge pump section check the discharge value (usually a simple rubber flap) is moving freely and has nothing obstructing it.

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).

Water won't go out of the dishwasher


Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Maytag MDB4000AWB-won't drain-now water isn't coming into machine


Hi there,

You may be due for a new d/w because this particular model has the pump & motor as an assembly. Only a qualified repairman would have to take a look, as it's quite complex to take apart. On the other hand, if you do call someone in, it may just a drain hose or simply something caught in the intake.
