SOURCE: dishwasher fills with water when running faucet

The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

SOURCE: Dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal

The disposal isn't being used much which is causing the slow drain. Turn on disposal for few seconds and this should take care of the problem. During the pump out the pressure is greater than just running water from faucet.

Sink backs up with water when running faucet,dishwasher does not drain,all pipes under sink clear


We had this problem and found out that the pipe leading away from the house was clogged. Have a plumber look (with a camera) down your clean out, and see if that is the problem. They can snake it from the clean out and clear out tree roots or whatever is the problem.

Not getting hot water to my dishwasher


Assuming that you dishwasher is connected to the same under sink hot water valve as your kitchen sink and that you run water in your sink until hot water really does arrive in the sink just before you start your dishwasher, your problem is probably a failed heating element inside your dishwasher. The other symptom of this heater element is cloudy film on your glassware after the cycle completes.

If the above is true, then replacing the element would be your next step.

No water coming in after sink blockage


Sounds simple , but the plumber may have shut the dishwasher water off. Valve is probably under the sink or near the machine in the basement or crawl space. Good luck.

Top Arm does not spin so glasses are not cleaned and detergent is not rinsed out of holder very well.


Make sure the water level is just at or below the heating element. Low water level will cause the pump to "run out of water" before all wash arms and connecting tubing are filled. A pulsing sound during the wash cycle will verify. Low water pressure or a bad water inlet valve are one cause. Water siphoning ou the drain line is another. Look under your sink and verify the drain line goes from the garbage disposal or sink tailpiece all the way up to the bottom side of the coutertop enroute to the dishwasher.

I have a kenmore elite and none of my dishes are coming out clean


Well, if the motor is moving, try adding a half gallon of /hot/ water before you start the cycle (just pour a saucepan full directly into the dishwasher). If that sounds like it is doing a lot more "blasting" than it was before- you probably need a new water inlet valve, or perhaps to take your water inlet valve off and try to clean out the screen. Problem being, you arent getting enough water into the washer before it starts washing.

It is located at the front of the machine behind the panel under the door.. but as a check, make sure that the valve under the sink that sends water to the dishwasher is all the way open, as this can cause the same problem.

If you do decide to remove the valve, be sure to cut the power at the breaker, or unplug the dishwasher, and turn off the water valve under the sink.

Water doesn't run in to clean dishes


if the water line not blocked or pinched... then I would your fill valve.. it may not open all the way...before replaceing the water valve...check that the water is come into the dishwasher but maybe going out the drain..If the drain hose is too low water will run out before the dishwasher can run a cycle... to check it it must raise above the bottom of the sink ... this keeps water from running out and sink water from going into the dishwasher... let me know if it helps

Miele dishwasher g843 scvi water backed up on bottom of unit


When you drain the sink the water will go to the path of least resistance. Disconnect the dishwasher, cap the hole and see if water drains. If not then you have a plumbing issue.
Inside the dishwasher there is also a non return valve located in the sump. This should prevent water from entering the unit. Make sure it is in correctly.

I would disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and drain the water out into a pot -- just to make sure there's nothing in the hose that can't get out. Check the sink trap too to make sure it's not holding something. Run an empty dishwasher using TANG instead of dishwasher detegerent.
