SOURCE: dishwashing machine not fully draining (2 inches of water remain)

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer instructions).

Your drain pump is out. Usually attached to your motor and operates when the drain cycle is engaged. It's usally a 20 dollar piece. good luck.

SOURCE: washing machine will not drain. water wont drain

If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

SOURCE: water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.

Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the drain pump needs to be replaced.

Per your notes, looks like you are a handy main, so you may want to remove the pump to determine if it is clogged. (Quite dirty job). The drain pump is easy to locate, just follow the drain hose.

Also, check the connection with the food disposer under the sink.

Washing machine will not drain or spin out the code is f21


On some Kenmore machines an f21 code indicates a "Long Drain". It is taking too long for the water to drain from the washer. This is normally caused by a clogged filter in the pump assembly. On the front loaders the filter is behind the bottom cover below the door. The filter cover unscrews from the pump, and if your washer is holding water, the water will run out on the floor when the filter cover is removed.

My wash machine tries to fill, but it sounds like the pump is pumping it out as fast as it fills.


The number one suspect reason for simultaneous fill and drain would be that your washing machine drain hose is inserted into your wall drain too far. The drain stack pipe in the home should be as high on the wall as the top of the washing machine main top/lid, and the hose from the washer inserted no deeper than 10" and properly secured to one of the adjacent water shut offs with a zip tie. If this is your issue, your drain system in the home is creating a siphon through the washer drain hose and literally sucking the water out of the washer. Pleazer Appliance...

Your drain system is clogged with debris. Remove the filter from the bottom left door and look straight back inside the drain system, you will see more debris inside. Do not use a sharp object to remove the debris or you will puncture the rubber bellows. From the back of the machine, remove the back cover. At the bottom of the tub you will find a rubber drain hose that leads from the bottom the tank to the drain filter. Using your hand, gently squeeze the rubber drain hose to "massage" the leftover debris inside. This should help clean out the debris. WARNING: This will cause a major rush of water to come out so be prepared. Good luck
