To check pump is ok, cancel cycle and restart - first action is to pump out.
could be that appliance is in fact sticking in cycle usually due to not heating so check if this is the case

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

MY FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER WILL NOT DRAIN. MOTOR ONLY HUMS DURING DRAIN CYCLE. OTHER THAN DRAINING IT SEEMS TO WORK FINE. DAY IT QUITE WORKING SINK BACKED UP AND WOULD NOT DRAIN


if there is still water in the dishwasher take the drain hose off from under the sink and use a large pot or mop bucket and but the unit into a drain mode usually by cancelling the wash cycle if the unit still does not drain.Then use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water
after the water is gone check the drain pump for any kind of obstructions you may need to replace the drain pump

Frigidaire FDP635RFR3 wont drain.


Theres a drain pump located at the bottom of the unit if you follow the hose from the pump then to the drain if your unit isnt draining you might have to call for service from a technician to have them change your drain pump. If the water is just sitting inside the unit and when u start the unit it should fill with water again.Also if you have a cancel function by pressing this you will make the unit drain if you dont hear anything when u press the cancel button you definetly need a pump

2in.of water standing in bottom when finished


Most likely a clog, either along the drain hose, or more likely, actually in the air gap vent. Disconnect the drain hose from the dishwasher and place a bucket under it. Run the drain cycle. This should clear any clog along the drain line. Remove the air gap vent from the top of the sink and disconnect the other hose. Remove the small cap at the top of the vent by pressing the small clips on opposite sides of each other and lift the cap out. Using either a strong flow of water, or, a thin, long-blade screwdriver, remove any debris from the two hose connectors. (Problem is most likely in the smaller hose connector which is preventing water from flowing over to the other connector to drain out). So, during operation, water goes up the small drain hose, but can't go any further and water remains in the dishwasher.

Clearing the air vent cap/filter should solve your problem.

Dishwsher wont drain. never happened before. do not use dishwasher very often.


I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.

My Bosch shx46A05UC no longer will drain.....it


I ran into the SAME problem with my Bosch SHX46A06UC /21. The problem ultimately ended up being a clog in the air gap vent, (meaning, SOMEBODY ran the dishwasher without the bottom filter being in place or not in place properly). Remove the air gap cover and upper surface nut to drop the air gap vent into the area under the sink. Disconnect the hoses from the air gap vent filter (placing a bucket under the hose from the dishwasher). Run the drain cycle on the dishwasher. The washer should drain into the bucket and let you know that your pump works and that there are no clogs or kinks in the drain hose. (This will also remove the clog if so). The air gap vent's smaller hose connection is MOST LIKELY where your clog is. Look at the upper end of the air gap vent. You'll see a couple of clips on opposite sides of each other, that hold the air vent cap in place. Using a small screwdriver, (or your hands if you can), depress the clips (or one at a time) to get to the point where you can pull the vent cap off the filter. Either use water or a thin, long blade screwdriver to force any objects out of the filter. You should now have full flow through both branches of the filter. Using water and a rag, clean the vent cap and filter. Mount the air gap vent filter back onto the sink. Reconnect the hoses and remove the dishwasher's internal filter(s) and clean them as well while you're at it, making sure to remove any debris that might remain underneath the filter and has the chance of clogging the unit again.

Run the washer again to test. You should be good!

Cheers!

Standing water in bottom of dishwasher


The first thing to try is to clear out debris from strainer area, you may need a Philips head screw driver for this. Clear out and then attempt to put the unit through its cycle.

The second thing I would try, is unattach drain hose from drain to sink, either blow in it or use a blower side of shop vac to force air into the hose. Reset dishwasher, and try again.

Not knowing how handy you are, you can pull the dishwasher out, please turn off circuit before doing so, also make sure you have towels handy. Unattached drain hose at base of drainage pump. Clear out hose and remove debris on bottom of pump. Reattach the hose and run through cycle..

If these do not work your issue is with a bad pump.

Dishwasher does not drain and I have cycled it a couple of times to make sure. No line plugged and I've cleaned the filter.


After determining the pump was working in the unit I checked for a posible drain problem. I disconected the unit's drain hose from the drain vent in the sink and stuck it in a pan and then ran the unit again. It drained just fine. I then removed the drain vent at the sink and found it to be plugged. I cleaned it and all is working again.
