    We took the hose off and there was a little water that ran out of the dishwasher. We took the drain hose off of the garbage disposal and ran a weed whacker plastic line through it to the dishwasher and a few globs of goo came out. What's next?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

Dishwasher not working.... when i close the dishwasher and turn it on i can not hear any water running and there is a pool of water at the bottom that will not drain


Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.


Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink. but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling. One heck of a water bill.

Check the drain line underneath the sink.
It should be suspended just below the counter top.
If it is too low,water from the sink will back fill into the dishwasher.
If the drain is OK,then the dishwasher water valve is defective.

Hi

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.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water is left in the bottom of the dishwasher after completing a cycle


When you find water left in the bottom of the dishwasher... most of the times there is an "Intake/Drain" flashing, or some other type of fault indication. The dishwasher has faulted out, in the middle of a selected program. The dishwasher won't even bother to drain the water out. If it's not a drain fault, then you can drain the water out by: switching the dishwasher off and on again; selecting a program; and closing the door. Open the door after 15 seconds and see if the water has drained out. If it didn't drain, there is a drain problem. If it did drain, then it can be several things. To better determine the problem, you will have to pay close attention to when the dishwasher faults out.

Will not pump water out of the bottom of dishwasher


UNPLUG THE DISHWASHER. Inside the dishwasher is a covered drain, usually covered with a plastic guard to prevent large objects from getting into the drain. Remove the blades in the bottom (careful but on my GE they come off with a firm pull) Remove the drain cover and see if the drain is plugged. If it does not appear to be plugged, you may have a bad drain pump. This usually requires you to remove the dishwasher but on some you can access it by removing the bottom plate. You then can disconnect it from the dishwasher drain by loosening a band that holds it firmly to the pump housing. Be ready with something to catch the water as it drains out. If the water inside drains out then your pump is bad. Because the water inside drained out, that tells you that the drain to the pump is clear. Your dishwasher has a drain pump that moves the water out. You will need to remove it, check it for obstructions and replace it. If it still does not work, you will need a new pump. There are two water connections to the pump, one for the flow from the dishwasher and another for the flow out. There are two electrical connections that you will have to remove.
