The center drain is held in place from under the sink with a large nut threaded onto the drain. You'll need to remove this nut using a basin wrench. A pair of slip joint pliers may work if the nut is not corroded and turn easily. Of course you'll need to keep the drain from turning while you loosen the nut. Depending on how the drain lines are fitted you probably need to remove them also.

My dishwasher didn't drain the water out on the end of the clicle? What could be the problem?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start where your drain line connects to the house drain,This is where most blocked drains happen. Disconnect the drain line and put it in a bucket and try to drain the dishwasher. Chances are its blocked somewhere you just have to find it.
Thank You and please ACCEPT my answer and Rate my answer if it was helpful..

Keurig Coffeemaker says to descale. How do I do that?


Hi, unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.


Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.


Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.


Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.


Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.


Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.


Fill up the reservoir with fresh, clean water and plug it in. Place the ceramic cup back on the drip tray and run multiple brews in order to rinse the machine of any remaining vinegar residue.

Machine goes thru all the wash cycle but gets to last min and keeps spinning then comes up with f11


Not knowing what sort of machine you have, one of these should help.


F11 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.

F11 - Pump cannot be activated - Book a washing machine repair.

F11 - Heater timed out. The heater has not reached the required level. Book a dishwasher repair.

F11 - No pump connection - Book a tumble dryer repair.

When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

Dishwasher does not drain. Drain valve is very hard to work and has burned out the solenoid. Can you tell me exactly how to get these parts out of the dishwasher. Do I have to replace the pump to replace...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

The dishwasher will not drain during the normal cycle. I turned the power off and removed the drain hose and the water drained out. I disconnected the drain hose from the sink drain and was able to...


Can you here it drain pump when it time to drain. If you do not Then your pump is bad or the control board is not sending a signal to the pump. To see if you get a signal to the pump you can use a electrical tester to see if you get current.
