Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17012 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our dishwasher will not drain. We took the drain hose off, it is clear. So we dismanteled the botton thing in side the washer. Cleaned all the lime disposits and other ****. There were two little bead like white balls in the drain thing. Are those suppose to be in there? We re-ssembled but the little balls back in (thought maybe they were some kind of float device) Still does not work. Can you help?

Pull out your dishwasher
Lean backward about 45 degrees
A small amount of water is coming out
put your appliance at its original position
Now it will be working
(normally there is a floating valve under the bottom of your appliance which has been stacked and sends the signal of no water flow.)

In case that it does not function, then there is a hard work to clean the plastic "labyrinth" which normally is fixed at the left side panel where a floating valve has been stacked a cause of dirty material.

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.

Drain valve and/or solenoid 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.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Check your air gap on your drain. It should be located on or around your sink. Sometimes food and other trash will stop it up and will not let your dish washer drain. The cap should unscrew off .Good Luck.

SOURCE: dishwasher will not drain water

Drain out is done via the pump out motor. Is the pump out motor working? Check by deternining with a AC voltmeter to see if supply voltage is across the terminals in pump out mode. If voltage is present and motor does not spin - the motor is open circuit and must be replaced. Remove the 2 clamps and the 2 electrical push on terminals with the MAINS voltage disconnected. Is the outlet pipe not blocked or obstructed ?

SOURCE: Dishwasher wont drain

Hi,

There is a check valve that would prevent you from blowing back into the machine. I would recommend taking that hose and putting it into a bucket, turn the machine on and see if it drains, if so you have an issue with the house drain if not then take the hose off the machine. You can take the toe panel off with a couple of screws and the drain hose should be right up front. Have lots of towels ready to catch anything.

It could be several things--- a clog, a jammed or broken drain pump iimpeller, a burned out drain pump motor, or the control is not sending power to the drain pump.

If you can hear the drain pump running (you might have to get down on fhe floor), then you should try something simple first. The drain from the dishwasher is probably a rubber hose that connects to the side of your garbage disposal. It might be clogged right there. Loosen or remove the clamp that holds that hose to the disposal. Put a stick in the hole and wiggle it around. Do the same in the hose. Put the hose back on and try it again. If this doesn't fix it, you will again have water in the dishwasher to deal with. :(
.
If you can't hear the drain pump running, it just might be a pretty quiet motor, or the problem will take a little more doing.

Uncouple the drain hose connection under the sink and use a wet/dry vacuum to **** out the drain hose and the stub on the sink drain plumbing to clear any possible clogs. There may be a blocked check valve near the pump that might have to be cleaned or replaced. Check the hose itself for any kinks or collapsed section. There might be a damaged drain impeller on the pump. Hope this helps!

Standing water in bottom of dishwasher


The first thing to try is to clear out debris from strainer area, you may need a Philips head screw driver for this. Clear out and then attempt to put the unit through its cycle.

The second thing I would try, is unattach drain hose from drain to sink, either blow in it or use a blower side of shop vac to force air into the hose. Reset dishwasher, and try again.

Not knowing how handy you are, you can pull the dishwasher out, please turn off circuit before doing so, also make sure you have towels handy. Unattached drain hose at base of drainage pump. Clear out hose and remove debris on bottom of pump. Reattach the hose and run through cycle..

If these do not work your issue is with a bad pump.

Dishwasher won't drain.


No sound from pump would indicate a defective pump that is not working.

The other thing to check for if the hoses are clear is the valve that empties clear of debris such as bone and is the solenoid that controls it activating which opens the valve.

Water will not drain on neptune MAH3000AWW washer tried different cycles. It started working for a while after we took back off and took things apart but now it won't drain at all.


There are many things could make a dishwasher not drain, here's a list of the most common reasons.
  • a clog or air gap in the drain line, often the problem is where the drain line attaches to the household drain line, if you remove this line you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection.
  • a defective pump, your dishwasher pump ejects the water.
  • many dishwashers use a drain valve or solenoid, the solenoid can sometimes become stuck or defective solenoid.
  • a defective motor, if the motor is'nt turinig or working the dishwasher won't drain.

Drainage problem


Regardless of the brand dishwasher, they all have the same fundamental plumbing. so.. you need to check a few basic things first..

1. Have you cleaned the drain filter or screen?
2. Is the drain hose kinked or restricting water flow?
3. Is your dishwasher pump blocked internally or the hose entering or exiting it ?
4. Is the house drain ( meaning : where that hose drains water into) restricting water flow? ( back pressure or clogged?

Any one of these conditions will manifest itself as an undrained dishwasher.. Hope this gives you some things to check and you get your problem resolved...
Good Luck
