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. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. 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.

I have a Kitchen Aid 2 drawer dishwasher and its about 2 years old. My problem is the top drawer will not drain during wash cycle. The bottom drawer drains fine. model number KUDD03DTSS 10


Hi,
You may have clogged pump to the drawer. open drawer, lay on your back under the dish drawer, removed the black cover (3 screws) remove 2 screws to the pump and allow the water to drain out into a bucket or bowl. make sure the pump can turn easy. Reassemble and test unit again. If fails, replace pump.
Pump
I hope this helps, good luck

Have an f1 error that comes up , says it is a flood switch doesn t seem to be any water in the area around the dishwasher. Any ideas?


The flood switch is at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

Do you have the F1 fault displayed in both drawers? If so, or if you have single drawer, then turn power off and take the bottom drawer out. Dry the base with towels and use hair dryer on the small circuit board at the base.

Put everything back and turn power back on. The source of leak could be lid seal, kink in hose or ruptured hose.

If you have 2 drawer unit and the F1 error is in top drawer only then the bottom drawer has lost power. Could be due to thermal fuse blown on heater plate.

Hope this helps find the problem.

U3 error code


I believe U3 error on your model of dishwasher could also mean a couple of other things like either the drain hose has an obstruction (kink) or the inlet water pressure is not correct.

Hope this helps in finding out what could be the actual reason. T

o find the kink if any, pull the drawer out as much as possible and feel the hose. Might be better if you took the bottom drawer out from the casing and inspect the hose completely. As the problem is limited to upper drawer you do not have to worry about what is under the bottom drawer. Check the water pressure setting is same for both drawers. If so then that is not an issue as bottom drawer is working ok according to your description. See your manual for instruction on how to check the water supply pressure setting on your dishwasher.

Our two drawer dishwasher model 603dd was working - it showed the "flood button" and then the power cut out and now there is no power to it. Its two years old. Id it worth fixing?? id there anything we can...


I am assuming one of the drawers has caused water to leak into the base of the dishwasher cabinet

Disconnect the mains power connection.

Extend the bottom drawer out as much as possible. Use towels and hair dryer to dry out the base - especially the flood switch that is located towards the back middle of the base.

Leave it open until the moisture disappears. Reconnect mains power and try to start one of the drawers.

The water can leak due to kink or crack in hoses or simply too much foam from detergent.

Hope this fixes the problem - hopefully nothing to replace.

Flood switch fault


Turn the power off.
Open the drawer as far out as possible. get a towel and hair dryer and try to dry the base of the cabinet.

Turn power on and see if fault goes away. If not then you may have to repeat but get the drawer out from the cabinet.

Causes can be several - water leakage from the inlet or drain hoses, kink in the drain hose or broken actuator link that keeps the hoses taut when you pull in/ out the drawers.

Top drawer is draining into bottom drawer and bottom drawer is draining into top drawer


Hi, Make sure that the drain hoses are looped at least as high as the top washing part. With no loop the water is free to pump from one drawer to the other. I simply tied the hoses up under the sink with twist ties. That was over 2 years ago and haven't had the problem since. Good luck!

After 2 minutes top washer blinks. Water does not drain


When I opened the top drawer the water seems to be accumulating in the drawer and no water is draining. The drain tube appears normal and not kinked in any way.
