It is located behind the waher where both hoses meet you have to take them off at the back of the machine and it should be right at that spot where the hoses were taken off. it looks just like the screen for a faucet in your sink.

Hi rischaaf,

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 dishwasher with the primary function of keeping large particles of food and foreign objects away from the impeller/pump. Most current dishwashers have self-cleaning filters and therefore regular cleaning is no longer a concern. However, some other dishwashers 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 dishwasher and may cause the problem as you have described.

To check the filter and/or the drain pump, the bottom has to be exposed, the filter/pump located and cleaned.

There are pages online with illustrative description and detailed procedures on how to go about this. Perhaps you can try referencing here and/or here.

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.

How to change filters on lg dishwasher


Your dishwasher may have a filter located near the bottom or under the lower spray arm. This filter should be inspected and cleaned regularly. Follow your dishwasher owner's manual for specific instructions about how to properly remove and clean this filter, if equipped. If there are any holes or other damage to the filter, you'll need to replace it immediately to protect the dishwasher's pump and motor seals from damage.

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


Hi.

You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

Location of fuel filter Holden barina tk 2006


Under the rear passenger seat, you will find a plastic hatch, it is in the fuel pump.
Not serviceable item. I did take my pump apart and clean the fine filter. The only way to change the filter is to get a new fuel pump.

Whirpool DU1055xts water does not drain after wash


Hi,

There is a fourth screw under the spray arm. Here are some instructions I put together to clean out the pump. But I do not think this will help the drain. The drain hose or drain pump could be restricted.

The best way to find the restriction is work backwards. Start at the sink where the dishwasher drain hose connects, take that connection apart and try to drain into a bucket. If it does not drain the work your way back to the dishwasher checking at every connection point.

This link will be for the pump cleaning.

The milk pods do not fully empty


The problem is with the air pump motor. You need to take it apart and then clean the diaphragm and the air passages in the plastic housing. You also need to clean the tube from the pump to the multi valve. The air pump is located right in the middle above the water pump. Mine was white in color. Remove the electrical terminals and note location. There are four plastic tongs that need to be carefully pride apart then the unit can be cleaned. After cleaning return the motor back together and the machine should be working fine again.
