Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

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

I have a Maytag dishwasher Model PDB3600A. the dishes are left with a strong soap residue after a full cycle of wash. I use a powder detergent and Jet Dry. What should I check to solve the problem?


When you open up the dishwasher is there still water in the bottom of the dishwasher????? The screen around the bottom could be dirty. Or the drain line could be restricted, if it drains back to the Garbage disposal make sure it is draining. Are you using hot water??? Check to see if the Arms are turning and the ports are not plugged with debrie.... If the drains are OK and the screen is clean...... I put in about a half gallon of white Vinegar in the wash cycle after it filled with water and used no soap and rewashed the dishes. I ran the Hot water faucet at the Kitchen sink till the water was good and Hot and then on the dishwasher used the heat water feature. It cleaned up the dishes and the dishwasher. I did this on a Whirlpool dishwasher but it should work for any make of dishwasher. Hope this helps... I had to do this several time to get all the dishes back clean

I have a dishlex global 450 and it shows ND. what does this mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, error message "ND" refers to "No Drain" and therefore would require that the drain system be checked, cleaned and inspected for any faulty components. Normally, there would be a drain filter, a sump or sorts, a valve, an impeller and a pump that leads to the drain hose. Access to these components would be through removal of the bottom/kick panel. Further the presence of water at the bottom of the dishwasher indicates that the water is not being flushed/drained out but is leaking from any of the above.

Unfortunately, this is a very messy job.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Dishlex global 200 dishwasher. Eco button stays on and dishwasher continues to drain even without water. What is problem and how do I fix it?


bottom pan has probably got water in it. take off the bottom plate so you can see inside. disconnect from elec and mop water out and it will start. if problem re-occurs then you have a leak

Thomo, make sure the sprayer holes in the spray arms are clean. Grains of rice seem to be a dishwashers biggest enemy as they don't desolve and eventually end up lodged in the spray holes. The holes at the end of the spray arms are the ones responsible for the washing out of the soap powder from the dispenser, if they are blocked this does not happen.
Hope this helps
Cheers
