Hi,

Firstly, check to make sure the waste outlet from the dishwasher isn't blocked. Remove, the drain hose where it attaches to your sink and check both the hose and the sink inlet connection. If these are clear, make sure you sink is draining efficiently and, if your are using a disposer make sure this is clear as well.

If the waste hose and outlet checks out, turn the dishwasher power on, and open the door. At the bottom of the wash compartment, on the front left side is the float. Lift the float as high as it will go and see if the washer pumps out.

Try these tests first and post back with the results.

Regards,
BElectric

Why is my dishwasher leaking soap foam from the lower left area of the door?


A leaking dishwasher can be caused by excessive soapsuds. Excessive soapsuds are the most common reason dishwashers leak. Excessive soapsuds will cause dishwashers to leak from the door. Good dishwasher detergent will have no more than half inch of suds on top of the water. So any time your dishwasher is leaking from the door open the door, if there is more than a half inch of suds your problem is in your soap. One drop of hand soap, hand dish washing soap, or any other soap will cause dishwashers to leak. Now, I am not suggesting that you intentionally put this soap in the dishwasher because if you did the soapsuds would be from top-to-bottom of your dishwasher. Now if there are a lot of suds you can fix it by pouring vinegar or cold water into the dishwasher and running it, this will kill the subs.

Hi
White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

Fisher and Paykel design a air gap kit to prevent the water back flowing to the other while one is running. it really works and worth of your money. You need to change the lid seal and a pair of actuators from the top drawer. Because of the leak then the floor switch activated not allowing a complete cycle. Need to dry out the wetness from the bottom housing of both top and lower drawers by pulling the tubes out and accessing from the left side with small tower until it completely dry. Here is a link to buy air gap kit http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/product/WT50/WT50-Dual-Air-Gap-Kit/

My dish washer does not drian completly


the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
