Pull the hose off your disposal and poke something in the disposal to make sure its not clogged,by the way it is clogged.Look into the hose and clean it out .***NOTE***: If you cant poke something through the disposal opening,than the plug is still inside and would have to be hammered out with a chisel/screwdriver or ice pick.

CHH50 Dishwasher getting back flow through the rinse tubing and the filling container when machine is switched off


Most dishwashers require a DRAIN VENT between the drain hose and the connection to your drain plumbing. If there is no drain vent, water from your sink drain can easily flow into the dishwasher. If you do not have a drain vent, install one. If you have one, make sure that the vent hole is not obstructed in any way.

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model#DGHD2433KF1 water droplets remaining on top lower water not draining all the way leaving an odori


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack. there seems to be water dripping from the top inside of the dishwasher but the dishes are not being cleaned. I am making sure the funnel on the top...


There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

I get water all over my counter when dishwasher gets rid of water. There is a feature on my sink of which water comes out. This just started...


Since this just started, I would suggest cleaning out the p-trap under your sink. If your sink drains sluggishly without a pump, then your dishwasher will overflow your drain pipes with its pump.
Also, try facing any air gap opening into the sink.
If the pipes are clear, you may need to add a length of pipe between the air gap on the sink and the 'y' connector that the drain lines are connected to. This will help keep any splashing water from 'climbing' out of the sink-top vent. Good luck

I INSTALLED A VENT IN MY SINKTOP FOR THE WASHER AND WHEN IT DISCHARGES THE WATER IT COMES OUT THE VENT AND RUNS INTO THE SINK.


Installed vent? Dishwashers drain directly into the sink drain line. Drain can be installed in cross over between sink drains or on line from sink drain.

Water refilling after dishwasher is cycled off


Leave the D/W door open and make sure the water is not coming from the water inlet .
It may be oozing up from the bottom when you run water in the kitchen sink.
Does your dishwasher vent through a counter top Y siphon. It could be clogged causing water to re-enter the D/W.

Dishwasher draining into kitchen sink!


Is the water coming out the holes of the airgap "vent". If so, you have an obstruction from the hose that goes from the "vent" to the garbage disposer and is causing the drain water to back up. __________________
