Dishwasher will not drain water out after completing the rince or final cycle

Dishwasher seems to run and operate normally right up to the drain cycle. The unit sounds as though it is draining but no water is pumped out. This happened to her (it is my daughter's washer) about a year or so ago. They called a repairman who came out, pulled the unit out from under the counter, drained water out with rags and a cup then took off the drain hose - found nothing, not even water, put it all back together and it ran and operated as brand new... We have tried doing the above, but we are not as lucky - nothing drains out. Any assistance will be appreciated.
Thank you!

Thanks for respsonding, but the problem was a collapsed y-connector at the drain. We think it was an original plumbing error. The clamp was so tight at the connection to the drain, the PVC pipe collapsed. Turns out the problem was six feet away from the dishwasher. Go figure......

Hi there,

check to see if there is anything stuck in the pump. if there is nothing and the problem persists, have the technician replace the drain pump.

Is this normal for Miele dishwasher? - some water left below filter and not everything dry after cycle


Plastic items do not get dry because they do not get as hot as glassware. A lot of moisture inside is do to the evaporation of water on the dishes during the dry cycle. Some water remains in the dishwasher because it is impossible to pump all of it out. There is nothing wrong with your dishwasher.

My dishwasher suddenly won't wash hot on either the normal auto setting nor the eco one.


Do you find water left in the dishwasher bottom at cycle end???? It sound like your drain line is partially or completely blocked or possibly a bad drain pump depending on model. If it can't drain completely it can't refill with hot water. That will also explain an increase in the cycle time. Some dishwasher add time because it is trying to heat the water up. Its a loosing battle if the water isn't partially hot to begin with.

Hobart sr24h; It is doing a double cycle; runs a compleat wash and rince cycle stops then 30 sec later start over so our normal 3 min clean now takes 7 min to fully stop operating. What could be the cause...


Thats easy....Change your timer !! The timer turns 180 degrees for one cycle .Then 180 degrees for another cycle thus completing a 360 degree rotation . One side of the timer appears to be broken.

I have an older GE dishwasher Model # GMB921HB119. The machine operates normally till it reaches what I believe is the final rince cycle and stops. The timer continues to advance, reaching the drying cycle...


Is this machine new to you or have you had it long enough to see it work properly?

If it used to work as it should then you know that there is probably a problem other than your water or soap. If you have whopping lime in your water then the problem could be in a water treatment system (softener, RO system, etc) Is there a screen and is it not plugged when you clean it? Does the machine drain the wash water properly? Does it spray in the rinse cycle?

If the screen is not plugged then it should be able to drain the wash water. If it's draining the wash water then you should get a good rinse if you're not using too much soap. If it's not draining the wash or spraying the rinse then I'd suspect the timer. If it's not draining I'd suspect a plugged screen, a solenoid valve or the timer. If it's not spraying the rinse then it's just about got to be the timer.

Dishwasher wont drain even after running rince cycle is there steps to reset system ;ready to overflow


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't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

The dished appear to have a milky film on them after washed. We we use rince aid but it is not working. How de we get them sparkeling clean ?


Hi


White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.

Not draining


Are you sure your drain system is not clogged or restricting water flow ? When you say youtook off the hose off under the sink and it seemed to be lots of water running on the rise cycle .. that suggests that you may have a restriction after the drain hose in your house drain system. ...

Some other considerations..

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance.
  • Some water, usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. However, if water is covering the bottom of the tub, the dishwasher is not draining properly.

  • Check for paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub.

  • Make sure that the right type and amount of detergent is used: Using the wrong type or too much detergent can cause sudsing that can prevent the dishwasher from draining. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used
Hope this helps you...

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle


Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

Kenmore dishwasher


The water that remains after the final rinse is normal and serves to keep the seals lubricated. This is a normal function of the dishwasher.
