    The washer will not drain. It does not even act like the pump is trying to drain.

THIS COULD BE A HOST OF THINGS BUT THE ONE MOST COMMON WITH THE SIMPLEST FIX IS WHERE THE DRAIN HOSE CONNECTS TO THE PLUMBING ,SINCE THIS IS USUALLY A TEE OR AT LEAST A WYE THIS IS THE MOST COMMON PLACE FOR A STOP UP AND WOULD BE MY FIRST LOOK SEE TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM , USUALLY A HOSE CLAMP AND DOES NOT REQUIRE PLUMBING SKILLS AND MIGHT GET LUCKY

How to fix samsung dishwasher code se


The code is 5E
If your dishwasher is displaying error code 5E, It can be caused by a kinked drain hose.
If the drain hose is kinked, there will be an excessive amount of water in the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle has been completed.
In order to access the drain hose you need access to the back of the dishwasher. If your dishwasher was recently installed, contact the installer to move the dishwasher and inspect the drain hose.
If the drain hose is not kinked, but your dishwasher is still not draining, service is required.

My dishwasher won't drain and there is a rattling noise in the door. I don't know if I should just get a new one as the repairman costs are high. I did start a cyle over and more water went in but...


there is a drain pump system on the machine could be clogged, also if the drain hose is not installed up and over the unit it will cause issues with drainage. as for the rattling noise you probably have either pieces of broken glass rolling around under the basket.if you are a do it your self-er its always fun to explore.if not the cost of repair would be the cost of a new install. don't waste your money.

Dishwasher does not drain


Do you hear the motor running during drain cycle? If so, there is likely a blockage inside the motor (rotor) chamber and filter sump.
You will have to take the rotor out and lift the filter plate. There is a small channel between the rotor chamber and the filter sump. Take a thin but rigid wire and remove any obstacles. Mostly chicken bone fragments.

If motor is not running during drain cycle, then you are looking at a bigger problem and will require checking if the wash cycle is ever completed. If not, then the heater could be the problem. Will need technician if you are not familiar with fixing such things.

Please rate the solution if you find it ok, Otherwise post a comment and fixya.com will try to help you.

I feel you should not invest blindly in someone else s old dishwasher with no history.
Buy your self a new one
It will be much more energy efficient too!

From my experience.. usually when a motor is humming it could be something is stuck in your impeller.. if your can get to your drain pump to check it out.. and getting to your drain pump can be a pain.. good luck.. hopefully that works

Check for debri and food at the bottom clogging the drain. Be care full of your fingers in case there is broken glass don there!

Dish washer??


Has a disposer been installed recently? If so the drain plug may not have been removed...... Some DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage..... Remove the drain hose from the disposer, if connected to one and inspect for blockage.
