Check the level of your drain hose underneath the sink between the dish washer cabinet and sink cabinet connect to the dispose position, sometimes if the middle part lower than the dispose will cause the back up problem, should be a little higher.

Should a sump pump pit have holes in the walls and where dose the water drain to


Water in electric dishwashers drains into the sewer line. The holes in the walls are to keep small diameter drain line from clogging. Keep the holes clear.

What is F78 fault?


It could simply be that the pipes under the sink where the dishwasher drain pipe fits are blocked with muck. This can prevent the one way valve connecting the drain hose to the household waste from fully opening thus preventing the machine complete its drain cycle. Solution is to thoroughly clean the sink drain pipes - plunger, power plunger and then a dose of chemical cleaner.

Miele dishwasher doesn't work.error F70


When this problem happened to our machine, it was simply the pipes under the sink where the dishwasher drain pipe fits were blocked with muck. This was preventing the one way valve connecting the drain hose to the household waste from fully opening thus preventing the machine complete its drain cycle.
Solution was to thoroughly clean the sink drain pipes - plunger, power plunger and then a dose of chemical cleaner. Dishwasher is as right as rain now:)

Dishwasher isn't draining completely


HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I have a tricity bendix dishwasher.It is not washing properly,also the washing tablet dose not desolve.the model n.o is TDF 200


Dishes not cleaned properly....
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.

Hi meeey,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Your dishwasher dose not drain water, and now dose not turn on the machin
Any body can help you?


If the motor runs but it won't empty then the pump needs replacement. If the unit washes but the motor won't come on to empty then you have a control problem. Either way I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repair man. If the d/w dosen't come on at all then it may be time to consider replacement.

Dishwasher dose not drane


YOU CAN TRY REMOVING THE LOWER RACK AND LIFT OFF THE SPRAYER. THE DRAINAGE WHOLE IS USUALLY VISABLE. YOU CAN FLUSH OUT THE DRAIN TO SEE IF THAT DOES IT. THERE SHOULD BE NO STANDING WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR DISH WASHER AFTER WASH CYCLE AND DRY CYCLE. HOPE I COULD HELP.
