My dishwasher didn't drain the water out on the end of the clicle? What could be the problem?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start where your drain line connects to the house drain,This is where most blocked drains happen. Disconnect the drain line and put it in a bucket and try to drain the dishwasher. Chances are its blocked somewhere you just have to find it.
Thank You and please ACCEPT my answer and Rate my answer if it was helpful..

i would guess that you run out of hot water in your house pretty quickly. if so, your water heater tank needs drained. hook a hose to the bottom outlet on the tank. shut off the cold water supply to the tank. open up the hot water on a nearby sink. drain the tank into a sump or a drain or a bucket that is lower than the tank. it will cost you 40 or 50 gallons of water, but it should clear up the sediment that you see floating in your hot water supply. you might have to do it twice. good luck

My dishwasher is not filling w water


check filter or drain hose it probably have a dirt,try to fill with water manually and turn on pump to dispossess water,if water not go out and pump work then you have dirt in hose or filter,if pump not work then pump is broken.

Ran on normal cycle when done 2 inches of water on bottom


Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.

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!

Water standing in Dishwasher


Hello buzzy220,
If you have water remaining in the bottom of your dishwasher then I would check the following:
  1. The drain filter screen is free from food byproducts that might limit drainage.
  2. The drain line exiting the dishwasher itself.. is it kinked or clogged?
  3. If your drain line is plumbed into a garbage disposal side entry, is that clogged or your house drain clogged?
  4. Is your dishwasher pump contaminated with sediment or anything that would limit its ability to pump?
  5. Are the water lines that come into or out of the pump blocked, damaged or restricting water flow?
Those are the main reasons areas of concern to investigate.. BTW, your drain line exitting the dishwasher should be routed up high and down into your sink drain system or thru the garbage disposal tap so that you have an air gap as 20YRSEXP was inquiring about..

You can run a simple test to verify all this..
Detach your drain hose from the house drain system ( from the garbage disposer or sink drain.. then route that into a rubber barrel ( be sure to keep part of the house up around the height of the countertop when you do this.. )... You should see a fairly robust flow of drain water into it when the system functions properly.. I would encourage you to run this test with no dishes inside it,.. This test will tell you if the restriction is in the dishwasher or house drain side..
Hope this helps you..
Regards,
Rick

The water does not completely empty out after cycle is done and the button that says cancel/drain does not empty it out either. this is a kenmore ultra wash about 6 or 7 years old.


Have you cleaned the drain filter ? If yes, then you may have an obstruction in the pump, the hoses to and from that pump or trhe drain hose exiting the dishwasher. Another consideration is the drain system of your house.. are you certain it is not restricting water flow? These are the basic areas of concern and each one ( if bad) can limit the dishwasher from fully draining. Hope this helps..

Dishwasher not draining


The drain system is pretty easy to understand and the checks you can do will identify how to fix it..
First off, check the screen filter in the bottom of the dishwasher.. all water must exit thru that filter before it can be pumped out..if that is clean..check the drain hose itself is not kinked or pinched off.. ( depending on your set up..you will find it attached to a drain trap or directly to a stub off the side of your garbage disposer..if you have one..).. make sure that the path the drain water travels is free and not restrictive.. ( meaning: that your drain hose goes into your house drain system and that it is not restricting the water flow thru it).. Lastly.. and as a check.. your pump, the hoses leading to and from it may be bound up ... as a check...you can detach the drain hose and route it into a large bucket or pail under the sink then try cycling the dishwasher.. when it gets to the cycle where it drains.. you should get a very good flow into that bucket.. be careful with this test because if it is working right.. the flow should be fairly high..If it is , then stop the dishwasher and reattatch it to the drain system and monitor its performance there.. If it doesn't pump the water very well..then you may have a restrictive drain system in your house.. Hope this helps..

Moved into house with no manual...


The user manual is available at this site. But won't say much about F1 error except the flood switch has triggered. This means water has collected under the drawer in the main housing.

As the dishwasher was not used the drain hose must have cracked or the water inlet is leaking.

Water inside the dishwasher needs to be dried even if you fix the leak. check the installation manual on page 7 to find out how to take the drawer out. Then inspect the housing drains etc and the inlet water connection tap. Get a few towels and dry the base and then put the drawer back and test.

If drain hose is crackedt then these need to be replaced.

Make sure you leave the mains power cable disconnected when handling the inside of the dishwasher.
Hope this works for you. It is a nice dishwasher but needs a good deal of care.Do post a comment to let me know.
