Make sure the garbage disposal is working, if it is not then it will not allow
the dishwasher to drain. Also make sure there is not blockage in the intake port on
the disposal where the hose connects itself. If you installed a new disposal, there
is a knockout that must be struck out inside the connection port.

If you have an "air gap" installed (next to the faucet which looks like
a small cup upside down, it may be gunked up, remove and clean, or replace it)

If the hose came inside the dishwasher did you install it on the proper port on the
dishwasher pump, many have two and one is blocked off. (it is unlikely but depending
on the amount of water and the type of subflooring under the machine, it could have
pumped out unnoticed and drained through a wiring hole).
Hope this is helpful

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Recently there's been a white coating on dishes. Has to be scrubbed off manually or soaked in a vinegar/water solution. I flushed out the rotating arms to be sure water flows thru & it does. Checked...


use any brand of dishwasher cleaner from a local store and run your dishwasher with it.I would also recommend that a calcium lime and scale remover be ran through your dishwasher to clean it out.
this may have to be done a couple of times.

Model: DU1345XTVB Whirlpool Dishwasher recently installed will not drain?


If you have it hooked up to a garbage disposal you may have forgotten to remove the knockout plug in the disposal,It is made to use with or without a dishwasher so they plug the drain hole and you have to knock it out.

New Danby dishwasher - no water flowing into it


it sounds like the shut off valve has failed and not letting water into the unit, change the valve and it should work, even if it turns like it is working doesn't mean the washer isn't stuck keeping water from comming thru

My dishwasher won't drain


It is possible that it ran thru the entire cycle but was unable to drain teh waste water ( usually the result of a clogged filter screen in the bottom of your dishwasher).. I suggest you either hand bail the water out and look for the drain filter screen or check where the drain hose is hooked up under your sink and possibly into the side of a garbage disposal..That could be clogged up too... Hope that helps...

Jennair dishwasher timer stops halfway thru wash cycle.


Try using a cycle that doesn't boost the heat. Usually a quick or china/delicate cycle. Any cycle that heats the water pauses the timer until it is done. Some machines even select this with heated dry. The sensor that controls this can go bad and stop the timer completely. If it operates for the complete cycle , look for the sensor and replace it. There is usually a wiring diagram somewhere in the machine sometimes in an envelope inside the door, control panel or behind the front bottom panel

E3 code


Received from Danby customer support:
"The error code of E3 tells us that the unit is not getting the proper water temperature to continue thru the entire cycle. Before starting the dishwasher and attaching the quick connect assembly to the faucet, please make sure that the water from the faucet is warm to the touch; you can then attach the quick connect assembly with hose to the faucet and start the unit. If the water temperature does not reach 120 degrees F the dishwasher will not be able to run thru the entire cycle properly. If this is being done and the same code comes up, we will need a service tech in you area to diagnose the problem for us. For a warranty servicer in your area you can reach us at 800-263-2629 Mon-Thu 8:30-5 or Fri 8:30-4 EST."
