Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

The fan should shut down after the radiator temperature is between 180-195 degrees. If yours is staying on way below this I would think you temp. sensor is stuck and keeping your fan on.

Put new battery in votls are droping down to 10.3 if it was the alternater then why wouldnt it drain complety out

If new battery drops to 10.3 Volts on the dash monitor battery voltage, then the alternator is probably not charging it enough to maintain 13.2 to 14.2 volts when the car is running.

If it's the alternator, eventually all systems will shut down as it runs.

10.3 V is really low for a new battery.

What is the oil capacity in the crankcase of a 1993 800cc intruder. How much do you fill it too? I stuck my finger in and got no oil and there is no measure dip to tell.

holds 3 us quarts of oil with a oil filter change or if the egine was complety drained after overhaul it takes 3 1/2 us quarts of oil.
To check oil look for a small quarter size window on the clutch case,oil level should fill half the window to be full.Bike must be held level while viewing window,not on kick stand.

A small amount of water MAY remain because of backflow.

The pump cannot do well pumping air so the water that is in the upriser will come back in a bit.

Read up on dishwasher installation via Google and you should find that the drain lin is either raised up under the counter before going down to the connection OR an air vent protrudes through the sink to vent the line. Make sure your setup has one of these methods.

My Bosch wfd 1060 fails to drain complety. I have to drain it via the bottom front right drainage. Any advice on what the problem could be? Thanks a mil

Check and clean the filter, make sure the outlet hose is not blocked, if all else fails and you are sure the pump is getting a power supply, then replace the pump.
