Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

If water is backing up into the tub then you have clog downstream from that bathroom group. If water backs up when you ran water in the rest of the house then you have a clogged sewer service. With either case the house drain and / or sewer drain will need to be snaked. Most of the time it will be the sewer drain.

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and...

Problems associated with water from the kitchen sink back filling into the dishwasher are caused by the drain line on the dishwasher not having a high end loop. In simple terms, the dishwasher line is too low and is providing a path for the water to flow in the wrong direction. Reposition the drain line so that it loops just above the sink drain. Then, anchor it to the wall so that it does not move. This will provide and air gap and creates just enough resistance to keep the sink water from entering the dishwasher. I have included a link to a webpage that illustrates what I am referring to:

If you have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you are experiencing problems with the sink draining as well, then you may have a plumbing releated issue.

All of a sudden the airconditioner started filling up with water and the fan blades started spraying water out of where the air comes out. The unit is draining from the back.

Try cleaning out from under The evaporator (front) coils towards the back so the water can drain underneath the front coils towards the back
Make sure the unit is tilted a little towards the back
Clean drain hole in back too.
