Water does not stay in the sink. the plunger does not seal properly against the bottom of the sink.


The strainers usually have a rubber, "O" ring or a rubber plug that sets into the strainer housing. Check to see that they are there and are sealing properly. Sometimes debris keeps them off the surface, allowing water to escape.

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Sounds like a clog at or beyond the P trap of the sinks. With water coming back into the sinks, it has to be part of the drain line that is common to both sinks. If you try and unclog the sink, work on the side that does NOT have the garbage disposal in it. A small hand snake for sinks might do the job. You could also try a plunger on either side, but when you do, put a wet rag over the other drain so you are not just pushing air back and forth. Work on one side with the plunger while holding the wet towel down tight over the other drain. Sounds like a clog that was there prior to you putting the lemon in the GD.

Wont drain?


if you have an air gap on the sink from the dishwasher and water is leaking out here into the sink instead of the drain it is probably plugged from there to the disposer or "P" trap in the drain line,also check the sump screen and down in there for food particles still there

I have a 2004-05 Bosch dishwasher SHU43C. The motor is running, but it is not pumping water. Is there a belt in this? What do I need to look at to check out this problem?


I just paid $200 because I had the same problem and couldn't figure out what the issue was. My problem was the water in the bottom of the dishwasher couldn't be pumped out completely because the disharge line was clogged (only a little) from food that backflowed into it from my sink. The repair man cleared that out and now it works like new. The ultimate issue is that I have a garbage disposal and the dishwasher discharge line goes directly into the pipe above the garbage disposal, so if food/water is in the sink, it can flow back towards the dishwasher. I have since taped the discharge line to the top of the sink to minimize the chance for food to flow back towards the dishwasher.

Dishwasher will drain only some of the water---help


several possibilities...
1. could be "short cycling" during the drain cycle
2. could be food or waste buildup in the strainer in the bottom of the unit not allowing water to filter down quick enough
3. could be a bad pump running at abnormal speed
4. could be a blockage in the drain hose niot allowing all the water to get pumped out.
5. you have no air-gap installed which means the drain hose it tapped directly into your sink drain insted of thru an air inlet that you can see atop your sink usually where the sprayer would sit but looks like a chrome cap with a hole in the side

Hard to tell which might be the problem unless your willing to get under your sink and unit and investigate things by disassebling the hoses, etc.

The dishwasher collects water at the bottom and is not draining. Water backs up in the sink.

Dishwasher issue


Have had this problem twice on my DWI614. First time engineer came out and I watched what he did and asked questions. He removed panel at bottom of dishwasher (2 screws) after removing facia panel from kitchen as it is a built in dishwasher. To the right is the drain pump. Remove 1 retaining screw and hose retaining clip. Ease out the drain pump and make sure to have some cloth beneath as residual water will flush out. Before I did this the second time I removed as much water from inside with a small cup first. Both times I had blockages in the drain pump. First was a piece of glass and second some food. I also pulled the drain pipe forward and blew through to make sure path to sink was clear. Clear out and reassemble. Start a simple program before putting the front back panel back on and you can touch the drain opump and feel it working as the water drains properly. That was my fix both times, good luck.
