If you have a garbage disposal take the drain off and check the end of the hose and the port on the garbage disposal for blockage. If the drain is clear then you will need to get to the bottom of the unit. on the side of the motor there is a little solenoid attached to a stainless steel rod this is what changes the valve when the pump is running to drain instead of spray. That is probably the issue

You will need to remove the pipe from the pump to see if there is a blockage first, if no blockage a new pump should do the trick, I have had this happen twice to me and a new pump fitted by me done the trick.

WATER WILL NOT DRAIN OUT


Sounds like either you have a blockage in the drain pump or the drain hose is blocked.
The washing machine will run the drain pump for about 2 to 3 minutes to empty water from the drum then stop automatically.
If the pump is blocked or the drain hose blocked or kinked then water will be left in the drum.
Blockages are usually caused by buttons, bra wires or metal objects from pockets eg coins.
The pump can be popped open using simple tools ie screwdriver and any obstruction removed easily. The drain hose can be detached and a metal object eg knife dropped through to test for a blockage.hope this helps

My dishwasher will not drain


Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

My dishwasher doesnt drain water or wash the dishes in the dishwasher.


Water not draining - sounds like a blockage (food content)
Does not wash - - I suspect there is some LOGIC in the dishwasher that knows that it can not drain - therefor will not fill with more water until that problem is resolved..

Good luck

Dishwasher doesn't drain


suspect not draining properly all the time. if plumbed into the trap under the sink, then check there is no blockage there. (quite common) . hold drain pump into a bucket so you can see the rate of flow. hold the bucket about 3ft off the floor. if poor flow, then you either have a blockage at the pump or the pump is faulty
