Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that...


There is a breakaway stub in the garbage disposal's dishwasher hose port, it needs to be removed before connecting the dishwasher drain hose when installing the disposal.
Disconnect the dishwasher drain hose at the disposal, get a screwdriver and, insert in the disposal's dishwasher drain port and tap on it with hammer until it breaks off. Then remove that stub from the sink side.

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.

Dishes not clean enough. as if rinsing in dirty


If your dishwasher drains it's water to a garbage disposal, give the disposal a spin while the dishwasher is pumping out. Check around the bottom of the dishwasher to make sure something is not clogging the drain.

GE Profile PDW7300, Leaves 2 - 3 inches of dirty water in bottom


check for a clogged discharge hose where it connects to the plumbing under the sink...this is the most common area for a clog. if no restriction is found, the discharge valve will need to be tested

DISHWASHER DON'T DRAIN


Check the drain.

This could be a clogged drain line especially if the drain connects to a disposal. Some drains are semi-transparrent and a good light will show the clog. I use a long piece of tubing (snake) to dislodge the clog.

Also, if this does connect to a disposal make sure the dishwasher drain hose is elavated when it leaves the disposal so disposal debris will not get in the dishwasher drain line. You may have to tie the drain line to keep it elavated.
