When you replaced the disposal,did you remove the "knock-out" plug out of the dishwasher port on the new disposer???if not there is a plug that needs to be removed this is there so if you don't have a dishwasher it doesn't drain out of the disposal if theres not a dishwasher drain hose connected

i will assume you hookek the dishwasher to the garbage disposal... their is a knock out plug you have to remove from the disposal..you will have to remove the disposal, take a screw driver and put it into the place the hose hooks up to, and remove the plug.. hit with hammer. if you put your finger in the hole you will see its blocked

check your drain filter. there is probably some debris clogging the drain. or, it could be the drain hose going to the garbage disposal. It needs to route above the disposal and loop back down so that gravity does not cause it to back-flow. Good Luck

Drain pump wont stop


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged. or may
be bad and needs to be replaced.
Also if the cycle timer is going out this may cause the drain to continue so i would havethat checked out as well ok?
Hope this helps
Best regards Mike

GE GSD4920Z dishwasher. Problem is that it does not drain completely at the end of the cycle--about an inch of water remains. After checking for clogs, etc, we followed a troubleshooting procedure which...


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.

Thanks

If this is a new install where there was no dishwasher before. Or if your garbage disposal has been replaced. Then the plug in the garbage disposal inlet for the dishwasher drain may still be in place. You will have to disconnect the dishwasher drain and see if the inlet is clear. If not the garbage disposal will have to be removed, the plug punched out and then reinstalled. Good Luck!

Dishwasher


if you installed a new garbadge disposal at the same time have you popped the factory drain plug on the disposal where the dishwasher drain tube connects to the disposal. The plug is inside the disposal dishwasher connection tube . You cant see it . Just drive a screw driver through it with a hammer.Itt will pop out and then the dishwasher will drain.Just a thought.I forgot to do this to mine.

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle


Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.
