Hi,

It could either be the filter (most likely), the drain pump (likely) or the drain hose/tube (least likely).

Normally, there would a filter somewhere at the bottom of your washing machine with the primary function of keeping loose clothing, torn fabric, lint, fluff and foreign objects away from the impeller/pump. Most current washing machine have self-cleaning filters and therefore regular cleaning is no longer a concern. However, some other washing machine need to have the filter manually removed and cleaned regularly or as even in your case. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your washing machine and may cause the problem as you have described; water doesn't leave the tub.

To check the filter and/or the drain pump, the bottom has to be exposed, the filter/pump located and cleaned. In some instances, the drain could be a valve operated by a solenoid.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Is there something blocking the outpipe and is there anything inside the washer that is blocking the water from going out, this can be caused by food geting stuck in there.

My bosch SGS3062GB is not draining the water away - the water is stagnent in the bottom of the dishwasher. I ran the rinse cycle and it left about 2.5inches on water in the bottom of the...


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Drain pump runs continuously. Nothing else happens!


Water had accumulated in the sump - a plastic tray at the bottom of the dishwasher which catches any leaked water. This operates a float switch which makes the drain pump run all the time. The fix was to tilt the dishwasher backwards to drain away the water. It isn't filling up again, so I'm not sure where the water came from, but I'll keep an eye on it!

Bosch dishwasher wont drain


You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

Bosch dishwasher


1. Check for a clog in the air gap:
That's the silver dome on the back of the sink. Not all homes have an air gap for the dishwasher. (Though it is highly recommended!) Lift off the silver cover. Unscrew or unclip the plastic cap on the top. Look inside. Toothpicks are often found there.

2. Check for debris in the sump by:
Remove the lower rack, the lower spray arm, and screens. Use a #15 Torx bit to remove the cover over the drain pump suction. The hole leading to the drain pump is on the left at the bottom. Remove any debris you find.

3. If you find no debris, you almost certainly need a drain pump. After clearing any clogs, if you hear the drain pump humming, but it doesn't turn, replace the pump.
Comment back if you directions for this.

Good luck!
