SOURCE: Water does not drain from unit.

  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

SOURCE: DIshwasher doesn't drain. 3-4 inches of water sits in the bottom.

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

The water is being removed from the air, you need to empty the water out of the unit as needed, sometimes as often as every two hours, the beeping is a water tank full alarm telling you to empty the tank as per instructions, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the unit you may want to move the unit to a drain until you know the amount of water the tank holds so you know how big of a containor to use

Hi, our simpson enduro 701 washing machine does not spin back and forward in the deep rinse cycle. but operates ok and spins in spin cycle. thankyou Tina.


Hi Tina just read your posting. From the information in your posting the machine fills, then when the machine is full of water the agitator moves clockwise then anticlockwise until it gets to the rinse cycle then drains the water ,then it fills for the rinse cycle but does not move the agitator in the rinse cycle.Then it drains and spins the clothes dry .Is this assessment of your posting correct.If it is not 100% correct please reply to tell me what the machine is doing or not doing.If it is correct then the problem with your machine is the control board.Is your model the electronic one with the push buttons?Looking forward to your reply.

It sounds like the drum is so away from level that water is not flowing to the drain line, hence the pump running out of water. I would make sure the machine is level and the drum is resting level if it's the type that pivots around inside the machine. Failing that I would open up the machine and check the hoses to make sure they're not blocked. I would also check the drain hose to make sure it's not placed too high or in a way that will obstruct water flow.

My whirpool washer won't drain


check the following areas to help troubleshoot this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Kenmore 20722990 series 70 will not drain


I have the same problem right now. I found a dime in the discharge but it still does it. I am going at it from the front side of the pump now. I need disassembly instructions for the upper sections to get to it. It was really nasty dirty and stinks.

did you check for obstructions in the drain pump/ button trap??? if not remove the lower acess panel (3 screws across hte bottom of front panel) there you will see a lioarge turn screw remove it and you may find debris preventing free flow of drain water. BE AWARE THOUGH TERE WILL BE WATER BEHIND HTE BUTTON TRAP, HAVE A TOWELL/ GARBAGE BAG RADY TO CATCH WATER, AND UNPLUG UNIT LIVE WIRES!!!!!!
