    well when i put it on the dry cylce it sounds to me that the water is draing into to drain pipes, does that make sence? now the check valve is usually located under the sink on one of the brass piping. is there a certain way the check valve should facing vertical horizontal?

    I appreciate your time vmcanchola

Check your drain line and/or drain pump. The drain line should have a high loop at the point prior to where it connects to your drainage system in order to prevent drain water from the kitchen sink from back flowing into the dishwasher. In addition, most drain pumps have a small check valve that prevents this water from backing up as well. However, if you have something lodged in the drain pump (i.e., a toothpick) it can prevent the check valve from closing properly. This can cause water to back up into the dishwasher. You mentioned that the water will not drain. Is the drain pumping runnings at all? Please post back and let me know.

    I've personally seen something as small as popcorn kernel take out the wash pump. Just be careful what you put in the dishwasher and let me know if you still have any issues.

My dishwasher will not drain completely


Most likely, the drain pump is clogged or the filter for the main pump is clogged with goo. If, during the drain cycle, water is just "peeing" into the drain line or sink drain, something is clogged. Broken glass, food, bones, etc., can find a way into the main pump mech or into the drain pump. You didn't specify what model washer you have but check the round removable filter found in a lot of Frigidaire dishwashers. Yours could be square, rectangular, etc. Get the users manual if you need help finding out how to clean the filter! Remember, if water can't move freely through the filter, your washer won't spray strongly either. Also, dishwashers will not drain out every drop of water--they will drain past where you can see the water but there will always be a small puddle of water in the motor. This keeps the seals moist and prevents dry-rotting, cracking and leaking.

My Bosch dishwasher is not draining water and thus leaking on the floor. It is 7 yrs old but only has been used for 3 yrs as I was away. It was run weekly in my absence. Any ideas?

WHICH BUTTONS DO I PRESS TO FORCE THE DISH DRAWER TO DRAIN EXCESS WATER?


Just run the shortest wash cycle and check if it empties in the end. If not, then you have some blockage in the filter sump.

Go to the part of the user guide which explains how to clean drain filter and filter plate.

Hope this solves the problem.

Leaking from the lower right hand side during rinse cycle.


I had the problem with dribbles of water from the right side lower edge of the door, causing puddles across the floor.
Found there was a RECALL on MDB6000AWW models. The door inside panel was replaced by the dealer for free. No more puddles.

Dishwasher drain hose cloggs every couple weekes


Do you have a water softener installed in your home and is the water coming to the dishwasher at least 120F? I have some advice you can read about on dishwashers but it really sounds like a water temperature is.

QuietPower 3, water seeps into unit,fills the base once per week.


I need more info but I would check the drain connection under the sink to make sure that it goes up after leaving drain , to keep the sink from draining into the dishwasher.

GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!
