Sometimes the dishwasher drains, sometimes it doesn't; I emptied the dishwasher, removed the bottom tray and baskets; ran a cycle - it drained so, I presumed it was now operating as it should - it wasn't - the tub was full of water so, I ran a rinse (5 minutes) cycle - it drained next time I ran a cycle - it didn't drain

Our dishwasher won't drain completely. I ran it through a regular cycle but it was left with water in the bottom.


Have you tried canceling the cycle? To cancel, turn the on/off switch to on, then press and hold for three seconds the two buttons labeled "Cancel Drain". Keep the door closed for the next minute so that the dishwasher can complete the cycle. During this time the pump will remove any water from the washer. Also you will notice that Bosch dishwashers always leave a little water in the system to keep the seals from drying out and going bad.
Hope this helps

I have a model #DU1055XTSQ2 It has no lights on, it will come on for about 30 seconds to go off and will come on again for several mintues. Do you think it could also be the thermal fuse?


Hello.

Everyone expects their dishwasher will work correctly. They can become nonchalant about it until one day it does not function. Sometimes the dishwasher doesn't drain as expected. Most people immediately call the plumber when their dishwasher doesn't work. There are several things you can try at home before having to pay an expensive service fee.

1 Check the basics. Make sure that the dishwasher has actually finish the cycle. Your dishwasher will not drain until the end of the cycle. Many things may have interrupted the cycle. Check circuit breaker and reset it if appropriate. Also check the fuse. It is possible that you could have tripped a circuit have way through the cycle. Make sure the door is properly closed. Ensure you have chosen a cycle on the dishwasher. It is amazing the problems children could accidentally cause, that are easy fixes.
2 Remove any excess food at the bottom of the dishwasher. The best way to do this is with your hands. Large food particles can block from going into the drain.This is also another extremely easy fix to make your dishwasher to drain.
3 Check to ensure that the hoses are still attached. Use your manual to find where the hoses are. If they are not attached the owner's manual will give you instructions on how the attach the hoses to your specific dishwasher.
4 Attempt to declog the line. Disconnect the hose from under your sink and check to see if there are any clogs. Use a hanger or towels, remove the clog from the hose.
5 Remove the dishwasher basket. Again refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions.Normally you will remove it with a screwdriver. Make sure to work slowly. As you take the basket apart, you will be able to see if it needs to be cleaned. If there is dirt or debris, you can clean the parts with a rag or paper towel. After cleaning these parts, you can replace the basket.

Thanks.

How to remove debris from the drain holes at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, which is preventing the tub from draining all of the water completely?


I had a similar problem when my dishwasher wouldn't drain and was causing the kitchen sink to back up. I poured a little drain cleaner in the bottom of the tub (where the drain holes are) and let it stand for about 15 minutes then ran a hot rinse cycle (don't put any dishes in the dishwasher while you're doing any of this). The water still hadn't all drained but after a day or two of not using the dishwasher it drained on it's own and hasn't had any problems since. I would recommend reading your manual to make sure that using drain cleaner doesn't void any warranty you may have. Also, it's a good idea to do an empty rinse cycle at least once so that there's no chemicals getting on your dishes.

Ran on normal cycle when done 2 inches of water on bottom


Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.

Figidaire Dishwasher ModelFDB65BRAC1


I just had this problem with a zanussi dishwasher - I opened it this afternoon to find the bottom full of water - luckily not deep enough to flood my kitchen when I opened the door. I determined that the sink drain was clear (ran water, could hear it going down the drain outside), so the problem had to be in the dishwasher or drain hose. I poured just a little mr muscle sink & plughole unblocker in the bottom of the machine where the trap is, left it about 30 mins as per instructions, followed by a little boiled water - no difference. Scooped out the water, removed the filter (the big round bit, not just the trap that you pull out and empty) and scooped out till I could see what appears to be the out pipe. Thought what the heck and ran a rinse cycle - no dishes, no detergent and lower tray and arm thing removed for convenience. Water drained just fine, ran a second rinse cycle which got rid of the suds from the plughole unblocker. I now have an extremely clean and sparkling dishwasher and am about to run a load of dishes through it.

I hope that my post is helpful to you, I don't know if all the steps are necessary, it may have been a freak occurrence that would have gone away with a simple rinse cycle. It may of course be a problem with the pump on yours, I was hoping that wasn't the case on mine, and I had lots of old towels on hand in case water came out when I opened the door. But it's possible your machine has the same problem as mine and that this info works for you, I hope that is the case.

Problem solved, the dishwasher starts its wash cycle with a drain sequence, the pan did not drain in time for the wash cycle to continue , thererfor locking it out on inlet/drain alarm. I removed the drain hose from the S trap, then the non-return valve from the filter basket, made sure the drain pump impelar was free, blew down the drain hose back into dishwasher to clear any waste in the pipe,then found a block in the S trap orifis, after clearing that, reasembled and test run on cold pre wash cycle this runs for aprox 10 min.customer was very happy.

Intake/Drain Error


There is water collected in the inner tray of your unit. Pull out the Miele and take off the drain hose and unplug the unit. Then tilt the dishwasher back 60* and let it drain out all the water. There will be a couple of cups on the floor, but nothing too big that a couple of towles can't handle. Then reconnect everything and start up the unit. It WILL work! It just happened to me and my Miele incognito is now working like a champ again!!
