How do you "undo" the aqua stop?

Waste water hoses of washing machine and dishwasher are both running into the same waste water pipe under the sink. When washing machine runs water is being "pushed" into the dishwasher. This sets off the aqua stop.
Any Idea of how to switch off the aqua stop without calling an engineer??
Thanks a lot for your help.

The drain hose vibrates while dishwasher is running unless sink faucet is on, which stops the vibration.


Try throttling back (reducing the water flow) the valve that feeds the machine. With the sink tap/faucet running the pressure into the dishwasher is reduced. Is the feed pipe kinked or blocked in some way as there might be a sensor in the machine that doesn't like it when water is "jetted" in under pressure. It would act like putting your thumb over the end of a hose when washing a car.

Aqua stop hose allows water through when disconnected from Whirlpool dishwasher but stops water when dishwasher demands water


looks to me like as if the direction of the hose is incorrect. Check to see if there is a direction of flow arrow on the hose and point that arrow away from the tap towards the machine.

Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

I want to buy a dishwasher but as I already have washing machine plumbed in will it be a real swine to plumb in a dishwasher too? Also, are they really bad for the environment? Thing is I am a SLOB and...


The amount issues plumbing in a disswasher depends on what your set up is now really.

Adding in a new tap for the machine to take it's water from can be very easy. If you go to your local DIY store, you can buy a tap that clamps onto an existing pipe and as you tighten it down it pierces the pipe and seals its self at the same time, so the water take off can be very easy.

You may have an issue with the waste water drain, Presuming taht you are placing it near the sink, you may find that the drain from the sink has a blamked off connector for a drain hose for a dishwasher/washing machine. Some sinks have 2, some have 1, your washing machine may currently have its drain hose shoved town a dedicated drain pipe, in which case, the connector under the sink if it is there may well be free. So that's the water in and water out sorted, presumably you have a power socket somewhere nearby.

As far as bad for the environment. This depends on how effecient the machine is and how much you load it. If it''s a rubbish machine and you only ever wash one plate and a fork, then you're not doing the environment or your walley any favours. On the flipside, you could get one of the new Bosch Logicxx type machines taht can interactively look at how dirty the first rinse has come out and adjust its wash time, water temp and amount of water to best suite the wash you have just loadad.

Water from the sink fills up the dish washer


I had a similar problem with a washing machine, until I replumbed my waste pipes. My Washing Machine waste pipe was attached to the down pipe just under the sink bowl. I found that the U bend trap was too high and the water level in the U-bend was at the same level as the Washing machine waste pipe was attached. So we has syphoning back into the washing machine. I moved the U bend trap down by 3 inches 7 cm, so now the water leaves the washing machine falls the 3 inches to the water level of the U bend. We now have no more syphoning back into the washing machine.

Had a similar problem (flashing lights 1 and 2). Drained the machine by diconnecting the outlet hose and using a shallow bowl on the floor. Removed and cleaned filters. Forced clean water through by using a garden hose pipe(you can only do this one way, you cannot force water down the outlet pipe). Removed and cleaned the pump (you have to do this from under the machine but easy enough). Finally ensuring the waste trap under the sink was clear. Bingo!! No parts, no expensive engineer.

Broken dishwasher


If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days.)

If there is water in the dishwasher -i.e. it was part way through the cycle and stopped, it maybe that the outlet hose/pipe has got blocked - possibly by your plumber's efforts. Generally speaking, the fats are rinsed off by the hot water, but go solid further along the pipes, as it cools. It could be he has unblocked the sink drain side of things, but not the dishwasher drain pipe. Risking more water on the floor, if your flexible waste hose can be removed, pour some water down the waste pipe, see if it goes away fast enough.

One thing worth trying, if not done so, is to unplug it from the supply, and leave unplugged for 20 minutes or so. Then plug it in and see if it operates OK then. Maybe try that first.
