Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

The disk washer doesn't drain at the end of the rinse cycle. There is a humming sound but no water is forced through the hose to the sink/garbabe disposal. At the end of the wash, there is a large amount of dirty water in the bottom of the washer. I removed the spray arms, the spray arm holder and the screen and then removed the water, and found a couple of pieces of plastic. But I don't see how I can remove additional parts from the washer bottom. What could the problem be? Is there a filter that could be clogged, the salesman told us that the unit had a grinder in the bottom that ground up food before expelling it to the sink. Thank you. Weems

Is the dishwasher drain hooked to the garbage disposer? If so is it new? If so did you knockout the plug in the disposer? If so then you either have something clogging the drain or pump. Or the pump motor is bad.

    The dishwasher has been connected and working for 8 years.
    This problem just started in the past couple of days. We cannot see any obstruction in in the clear plastic hose to the garbage disposal connection.

    Thank you

SM 8525492A whirlpool washer rinse cycle no water comes out, just hums


when the washer goes into rinse cycle it only uses cold water so clothes don't rinkle,so most likey you have a problem with your cold water,do this,shut down the water to the washer,remove the water lines from the back of washer and mark them so you know how they came off,stick the hoses into the washer if they reach or a bucket,turn on the cold water to see if water is coming out of hose,if water does come out of hose good then stick the cold water hose back on the washer and run it only on cold,if it doesn't fill then you know you have a problem with the water valve on the washer and it's not the house water valve that's bad,and usually if you have a problem with the washer water valve it will just hum and no water will enter the washer so if you hear a humming sound it will be the water valve.tried looking up the model number you sent but it doesn't come up on the parts lookup

Washer stoped and did not finish rinse cycle now it makes a humming sound and code nd


Washer Error Codes ND IS -No Drain There could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken
  1. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  2. 3Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  3. 4If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  4. 5Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  5. 6Reassemble hose from step 3.
  6. 7Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  7. 8Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...

Washer does not spin for rinse cycle water does not drain


Check the end of your drain hose that attatches to the pipe under your sink to see if there is a block. The washer will not spin if it cannot empty the water before hand. Also check to see if your coin trap has any items in it as this will also stop the draining cycle. This is normally located at the base of the appliance just infront of the pump

Hope this helps

Machine didn't empty water after rinse cycle. Now


Check for power at socket using a lamp. If nothing, check the breaker for that circuit in the house electrical panel--push OFF, then ON. If now get light, try the washer again. If you get a loud hum from the machine, it may be a locked motor. Pull the plug again and check the motor. The tub can be drained by lowering the end of the drain hose below the interior water level.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Water not draining completely after cycle ends


First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.
