SOURCE: water build up in dishwasher- clogged drain

I would not recomment putting chemicals in the dishwasher. There is usually some kind of filter in the bottomt at you can easily take out and clean. It's common to have parts of labels and plastic clog this up.

Try removing and cleaning this first. It may also be reached from a separate hatch in the fronc of your dishwasher, depending on the make and model. Just make sure it's securly back in place before you start it afterwards, or you may flood your kitchen.

You may also try to disconnect the hose and blow through it to see if you may be able to blow back any objects stuck there.

If none of this helps your problem may be in the pump, and then it's usually a job for professionals.

SOURCE: how to hook up detached dishwasher to faucet?

Hello there:
you are going to want to make sure that the threads on the hose match the faucet and also make sure that the gasket is in place you might even need to get a adapter for the unit to hook up to the faucet.
i would consult the manufacture or the users guide for further help

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra wash III will no longer stay

if your adapter that hooks up to the faucet has 4 little white plastic jaws inside it then it can be rebuilt. there is a kit that replaces those 4 jaws, the spring, the attaching clip and the internal seal.. usually runs around 10 buks or so. if i was at the store i could tell you the part number without needing your model number, but any good appliance parts store should be able to locate them for you..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

How to hook up


Yes it only uses hot water. There should be a 3/8 fitting to hook up a water line. The drain hose connects to the air gap on the sink and when hooking up the power if there is no power cord be sure to hook up the black to black, white to white, and green to the green or bare wire.

Why wont dishwasher drain?


The 'drain hose' must placed into the sink and be free of kinks and obstruction. There is a pump that is supposed to pump the water out through the drain hose into the sink. If that pump does not activate, no water will be pumped out. I suggest yo have a repair technician trouble shoot and fit it.

Just got the Haier hdt18pa portable dishwasher


You have to buy an adapter for the faucet that allows the hose to hook up. You an get it at any hardware store. It's easier to get a dishwasher installation kit and just hook it up permanently.

Dish washer install


one hose should be smaller and the other hose should be considerably larger.

the smaller hose is the water in (attach to the hot water side of your faucet, and the other hose is waste out (hooks to the drain or sink disposal).

Dishwasher drain hose.


Its ok to hook to the sink drain but an air gap should be inline with it to prevent sink water from backing into the dishwasher.
