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.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a Kitchen Aid side by side refrigerator. Under the refrigerator there is a plastic water overflow tray. It collects water and the water becomes foul smelling. I have tried removing the tray to...


You should be able to remove the base grill by opening both doors to 90 degrees and pushing down while pulling outwards on the base grill to unlock the top clips, once the top is away roll the base grill toward you and up. From there you should be able to see the pan underneath which should slide out.

Clean it thoroughly and use a mixture of baking soda and water for final cleaning rinse and replace, I also mix some baking soda and water and pour in the bottom of the fridge to allow the mixture to cleanse the drip tube leading to the pan.

Installation is in reverse of removal

WIXL 125 the rubber seal around the door has mould at the bottom where thre liitle hole is. It has stained and there is water sitting around the area. Can we replace the rubber and why has this...


Yes, the seal can be replaced, and the reason for the mould is that you are doing too many low temperature washes.
You should periodically do a max high temp wash to help keep the seal clean and stop it from smelling.

Clothes smell like body odor after washing. using tide ultra he2 detergent.


i had what sounds like a similar problem. i complained of our laundry smelling sour then finally like sour sewage and a flooded laundry room. i was told that when its not draining properly, it can create a siphon-effect and actually pull the dirty water back out of the drain lines-yuk! i hope this isnt true.
there was a baby sock stuck in the pump preventing it from draining properly. hope your problem can be remedied as easily.
as for the smelly clothes, i always add 1/2 cup white vinegar to each load. it does wonders for odors.

Dshwasher has water on the bottom after cycle


Hi
Check the bottom of the machine and where water goes,there might be some scrap food,or other item that is not allowing the water to go in the time when the valve is open.This leaves some water and increases in other cycles,causing flooding on the floor.Also check for bend in the pipes at the back.
Hope this helps
