Do you have a garbage disposal? There is a vent in the tube that runs to the sink that can get blocked. There is also a screen or filter in the bottom of the machine that can get clogged. The pump can get jammed with debris as well.

Many dishwasher clogs are caused by food and drain particles siphoning back out of the drain or garbage disposal and into the impellor of the dishwasher drain pump. Remedy this situation the drain hose has to be long enough to loop up to the underside of the countertop then back down again to the drain connection, this should stop the siphoning effect. Also, if you already have the anti-siphoning device installed (usually on sink a chrome cylinderically cap) also called a "air-gap". Remove the cap by pulling off and check that it is not clogged up. If you do not have one and you have extra hole that is capped on your sink you can install one.

Another possible can is that your drainage screening is clogged, if so clean it. Or the drainage screen is missing or not seated properly causing food particles to jamb up the drainage pump impellor. These impellors are plastic and it does take much to stop one.

Brada dishwasher EF2401 BS, error code E2, will not go to wash cycle it appears and starts beeping. There is no water sitting in the bottom. We have taken out the drain and Cleaned the filter basket


E2 - Abnormally long drain time. Check to make sure that the drain line is not obstructed or bent in a way that restricts water flow. Make sure the drain line is routed below the height of the dishwasher and that it has not been extended. This will inhibit the ability of the drain function to operate properly.

Hoover D73 Dishwasher water comes comes and goes, no washing


this is a problem with the timer programme at the end this can be replaced but can be tricky to do your self the water should drain freely out of dishwasher if you feel confident enough taking the back off try finding the drain pipe because uselly these get blocked with either the food off the plates and it can get blocked with limescale if it hasnt been used for a while then the mess has buitl up and set hard if you can get the drain pipe off try running some bleach through it but make sure you clean all the bleach off before putting it back on otherwise everything will smell of bleach this is the only sollution it does sound like the drain p[ipe is blocked the dishwasher will cut off if the water raises in the bottom it does this as a safety feature to stop your kitchen from flooding it is more than likely a blocked pipe so check this properly and the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher as the water shouldnt just sit their it should be draining all the time but i would say clean all pipes properly before you do anything else hope this is some help......................

I'm getting an E:15 on my new Bosch dishwasher and nothing works, how do I fix it?


E15 means that water has gotten into the base pan below the dishwasher and it is now in flood mode. You've probably noticed that the drain pump will run all the time now as well. What that means is that water has worked it's way down into the base pan below the dishwasher tub causing the unit to do nothing but drain. This is normally caused by the drain being clogged or too many suds in the tub causing the tub to overflow a bit. Either way, you'll need to uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward at a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and pour a gallon of water in the dishwasher. If it drains it out right away and doesn't wash or refill, you still have water left in the base pan to try again, otherwise you're good to go.
Now if you don't want to do all this work just to get your dishwasher working again and you have time, let the dishwasher just sit unused for a week and the water in the base pan will evaporate as time goes on and the dishwasher will start working again after a week.

Dishwasher not working but deeping twice


This is just a guess but it sounds like there is a flow meter on the drain hose somewhere that is bad.

Dishwasher not completing the programme and water not draining away.


check for a drain clog. If not clogged, your drain pump in the washer may need servicing.

Water sits in bottom but won't run


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 Zanussi DE6850 free-standing dishwasher. Have just put on a 65 degree programme. After approximately 1 minute the machine has stopped functioning and the top two lights are flashing and water...


Hello,
You seem to have a blockage,have you checked the filters lately.Also check the drain hose and the pipe that the drain hose goes into,if they are clear then the blockage is down in the bottom of the dishwasher in the pipes or the drain pump.

Hope this helps.

Whirlpool dishwasher


I had the exact same problem with my Whirlpool Quiet Partner IV. I removed the lower arm, and a couple of components below that, and got to the filter/grinder (that thing that chops up and filters the recirculated water before it goes to the pump that feeds the arms). The filter was completely clogged. I used a knife to scrap away the foodstuffs, put everything back together and all worked excellent. Just goes to show you that you should rinse your plates before to place them in the dishwasher.
