SOURCE: Dishwasher does not drain, instead drains through overflow valve in sink. No apparent clog seen.

Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

SOURCE: Jenn Air Dishwasher won't drain out water. I have checked basket and hose for clog

The problem is most likely that there is a chunk of glass or bone etc. in the small drain pump. this is an easy fix. remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, you will see the drain line which goes through the cabinet wall into the sink drain and at the lower end is attached to a small pump. Disconnect the hose clamp and the hose by the pump then unscrew the little pump from the frame of the dishwasher so u can look in it. Remove the blockage. Now reassemble everything and u will be back up and running

My gallery dishwasher doesnt drain all the way

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't drain properly. It could be possible that your drain line or filter trap is clogged. I would recommend checking the drain hose to make sure it is not clogged or kinked. You can also look at the filter in the bottom of your tub to access that filter you would need to remove the rack and it is located right under the spray arm. You should be able to lift up and pull the trap out if it is dirty clean it and reinstall it. If everything appears to work properly it could be a possible issue with your drain pump and you may need to have it replaced. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Hi Monique,

By any chance is your kitchen sink draining slowly? If the main drain is clogged it will back-up all the way to the dishwasher. Try using 2-Second Plumber or a similar product with a CO2 blast to clean the whole drain first.

Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1100RHC2) is leaking from bottom right corner and it appears there are small hairline cracks on the plastic tub. Is there a way to repair them?

Hello - Do you notice if the dishwasher have deflectors installed in the bottom left and right corners of the tub gasket channel? If so, confirmed that they are properly installed and present. In case that it is not, they may possibly need replacing. However, from what you have described it sounds like the springs or hinges may possibly be damaged, or gasket not sealing properly. I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Water will not drain out

Check the drain filter located at the bottom of the wash tub. Clean if clogged. The pump noise could be due to non availability of the washed water continuously due to clog.

Clean the drain filter. Check the final drain output after the pump(hose) for free flow if you have connected it to a drain system.

After installation my new dishwasher is leaking around the door. My dishwasher is a FDB1100RHC2 TH94532456

Improper installation - either the legs are not leveled properly, the tub is "twisted"by tension made by wrong screw placement on the top, or the door is rubbing the top or one of the sides. The worst case scenario would be a damaged dishwasher frame, but it's rare.
