HI,

It's probably your air vent/overflow. You likely have hard water and the hose is limed up. Depending on set up you may be able to clean it without taking anything apart, or you may have to unclamp the hose under your sink. Use a product like C-L-R or Lime-A-Way (or vinegar in a pinch), let it sit for an hour or so. Heavy deposits will take several applications.

Goodluck,

Any way to bypass the W10156252 pressure switch? The OEM part number is now W10415587, and is not available until August, 2011. The wiring diagram doesn't give details of the switch. Model...


No you cant bypass the switch. what it does is to stop the flow of water comming in to the washer.
if you short it out water will not turn off and it will overflow. it you open it up you will get no water.
Are you sure the switch is bad. A common problem is that the hose that it is attached to it gets plugged up. have you tried to blow through the hose to see if it is clear.

Hope this answers all your questions

The waste water backs up into the dishwasher when sink is plugged


Dishwasher manufacturers recommend a syphon break be fitted - but usually there is not a problem if your sink has an overflow pipe incorporated.

You have a partially blocked drain - causing wastewater to flow into the dishwasher instead.

Use 1/2 a cup of caustic soda or proprietary drain cleaner down the sink drain. Add about a pint of water, and leave overnight.
Next morning pour a full boiling kettle down the drain which should move things on and clear the drain.
You may have to repeat this process once, but is preferable to taking your pipework apart - which is next if this does not clear it.

My stainless steel dishwasher smells


You need to check to see if the drain line runs from the dishwasher pump to either a "T" on your kitchen sink drain or if it connects directly to the garbage disposal. Either connection is okay. However, water can run downhill from either connection to your dishwasher. To prevent dirty water from your sink or garbage disposal from running downhill to the dishwasher, you may have to install a dishwasher air gap. This can be purchased at a appliance parts store or a home improvement store like a Home Depot or Lowes. It is a "Y" shaped device that should be installed above the dishwasher drain line connection under the sink. As water will not run up hill, you need to make sure that the Air Gap is installed higher than the drain line's connection under the sink. "The Air Gap device should be mounted as high as you can under the sink."

Dishes are not getting clean..glasses are covered in crud


Try refilling the rinse agent, and cleaning out the bottom of the unit. If the dish washer was resently installed. Or you have recently intalled or replaced your garbage disposal. Make sure the plug was punced out where the drain from the dish washer connects. If the plug is not punched out you will be useing the same water over and over agian.

Breather for the dish washer


Yes the breather can be placed under the sink. Just be sure to mount it above the level of the dishwasher. You can either screw it to something wood or use tie straps to tie it up to a screw.

Pegasus Push Button Vessel Sink Drain with overflow


Put plumbers putty around the flange that will be in contact with the sink. When you put it into the hole, try to line up the overflow as good as possible. The nut that goes onto the bottom (tailpiece) has a rubber gasket that will go between the nut & the sink. Adding some plumbers putty here won't hurt. After all is secure, just remove the putty that squeezed out from tightening.

Water backs up to the dish washer from the sink .


Check the drain hose under the sink. It should have a high loop an upside down "u" like a hill the water can't climb to get from the sink to the dishwasher. That is where I'd start. Good luck.

Dishwasher drains into sink


As background, the dirty water typically goes from the dishwasher to a small tube within a tube, and that goes to the disposal. This ensures that your dishwasher does not back up in the event of a clog.

The problem is likely that the tube that links the thing you see next to your faucet to the disposal is either totally or, more likely, partially blocked.

I recommend taking the entire flex pipe off and inspecting. In my case it was about 80% blocked, so a simple test whereby water was pored down failed to show the issue.

Once I took it apart and gave the tube a plumbing version of an angioplasty all was well.
