Hi and welcome to Fixya,

I'd suggest you are correct in your suspicsion of the disposer being a likely problem.

Start by checking the drain spout of the disposer where you connected the drain hose from the dishwasher and make sure you knocked out the plug in the spout.

**Turn off the power or unplug the disposer/garberator before performing any service**

If the plug is not punched out, with the aid of a long screw driver and a hammer, or a firm smack with the palm of your hand you should be able to knock out the plug.

Now reach in the disposer and remove the plug you`ve just knocked out, reconnect the drain hose for your dishwasher and you should be good to go.

Let me know what you find and how it goes.

Thank you for visiting FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the solution provided here for you. Hope that help`s.

Good luck.

Don't overfill your washer with too many items!! We had a party and we put too many dishes and plastic ware in the dishwasher. The dishwasher ran forever and never drained. When we removed the items, the dishwasher was able to complete its cycle.

My whirlpool GU2455XTSS1 is not draining. What might be the problem.


first have you installed a new garbage disposal unit in the sink if so does the drain hose for the dishwasher go to the garbage disposal unit? if it does then you may have to remove a knockout tab in the pipe on the garbage disposal. its there because not everyone uses a dishwasher. if that not it check the drain hose for a grease clog get a long wire run it through the hose and try to clear it. Check the filter inside the dishwasher it needs to be clean to suck the water out. Also on the left side of the unit is a housing that the drain hose goes to befor going to the main drain that could be clogged. If the pump has power and runs and hoses are clear im not sure what going on without see it.

Washer is flashing f2


F2 on a Whirlpool Duet means their is a problem with the Drain Pump or Drain Pump Filter. The Drain Pump and Filter are located at the bottom of the Washing machine. You must remove the front, bottom panel to gain access to the Drain Pump and Filter. Disconnect the Filter and Drain Hoses and clear them out. If they are clear, you may need to replace your Drain Pump.

It will not drain!


Hi
If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.
Hope this helps...

D/W does NOT drain. Water remains in bottom after cycle is completed


Hi


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.


Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn

How to clean water pump

To resolve the issue you’ll need to then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn’t work then you’ll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the connections with a multimeter. In case you need more information then please post back with the make and model number. Hope this helps...

Maching will not drain - error F21


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Water won't drain


Hi fixitfran,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. You have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. You poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. You have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no avail....you don't know what is causing this issue....can I help you out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do you fix this and will it be very expensive.

Have you recently replaced the garbage disposal? Sometimes the installer forgets to remove the knockout plug. All of the disposal manufacturers plug the d/w connection in case it is installed where there is no d/w. If there is a d/w, the plug must be removed.

Feel free contact me again!

Drainage blocked on Whirlpool ADG 450 slimline inbuilt dishwasher, have taken out filter and cleaned it. Still blocked.


two things to check
if drain is plumbed nito a spigot on the sink trap, check that ther spigot and drain hose are not blocked - this is very common
also see if you can get to the drain pump and check there is nothing jamming the impellor. also if you have access to a multimeter, check if the drain pump is powered up
