Hi,

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Thank you !!

How to unstop a toilet without a plunger!!!!!


O.K. guys. Get your iron stomachs ready for the most sought after college age tip. HOW TO UNSTOP A TOILET WHEN THERE ISN;T A PLUNGER TO BE FOUND!!!

Here is what you will need:
1. Yourself
2. Your nerves
3. Ability hold your breath if necessary
4. Standard 30 gallon trash bag

Simply place the bag over your arm and pull in all your finger while leaving you palm extended upwards. (like you are doing a palm thrust). Slowly stick your hand into the bottom of the toilet until you reach the drain. Fit your fist into the hole and pump your palm up and down while leaving your knuckles on the ceramic wall. Pump quickly and with as little movement of the elbow as possible to reduce unwanted "splatter". The toilet will quickly begin to drain and you are free to pull the top of the bag over your fist to capture any unwanted materials you wouldn't want transferred about the bathroom.

AWESOME!!!!! NOW YOU CAN USE THIS SKILL TO COME TO ANYONE'S RESCUE!!!!!

GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS TIP!!!!!!

How do I unstop my dishwasher?


Turn the breaker off for five minutes and the turn back on. Start the dishwasher and see if it will drain. Sometimes power bumps can mess with the control board. Otherwise it could be the control board or the pump.

The hose detached from the garbage disposal. I re-attached it and now the water can't pump out of the bottom of the dishwasher


You have a clogged drain, remove the sink trap and use a plumber's snake to unstop the clog. Reattach the trap under the sink and disposal should drain. The pressure from the dishwasher pump more than likely caused the drain to slip loose, it's a drain, and it should not have any backpressure.

Hose not draining, bucket only fills


The easiest way to unstop the hose is to blow air through the end enough to clear the clumped up dust at the other end using air compressor or air pump.
