If you just had the disposal replace and the dishwasher will not drain that means that the dishwasher plug on the disposal was not removed. Where the drain tube hooks to the disposal is a plug inside you need to knock it out with a hammer ans screw driver. On the link below will show you how. page 5 step 15. That might not be your disposal but it will give you the idea. Or if you give me the make and model # I can get you the right info.

    Make sure that you remove the plug from the disposal before you use it or you will get a jamb step 16

SOURCE: Replaced disposal and now dishwasher isnt draining

It sounds like you've done everything fine. I would disconnect the dishwasher drain line from the disposal, have a bucket ready and see if it will drain. It's possible that there is a plug or something else left in the disposal opening that is blocking the water. If the dishwasher won't drain with the hose off of the disposal, there is a problem with the dishwasher that has nothing to do with your disposal installation. Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: the dishwasher does not drain, i just replace my

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. I just came accross your post and immediately I thought, " drain plug in garb not punched out" this is very common when a new garb or dishwasher is installed..so much If I had a dollar for every one I saw or heard about I could be paid a couple of trip charges. If you haven't already done so, remove the drain hose from the garb and knock out the stop inside the spout. See your installation guide/owners manual ( for the garb/disposer ) if you still have it, that should show you "where" and "how". Let me know either way and I'll help further if necessary. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Dishwasher hose is hooked up separtely from garbage disposal but still dishwasher not draining


Hi - Is the unit making a grinding noise? If so, contact a professional because you may possibly have a defective drain motor/pump.

Water will not drain


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 rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

BOSH won't stop draining


take your dishwasher out and look for a water at the base of your dishwasher.
If that is a water at the botton base, just dry the water and its ok.
if you dont find water at the botton base inside replace the water level system PN= 263834 at repairclinic.com, item# 935595 for 41.00 and that part goes in the left side of your dishwasher
