Hi this sounds like either bad drain pump or the pump is clogged, does it make any noise when your trying to drain it? If it does its probably clogged if not its either bad or its not getting any power to the drain pump, the former being more likely, the pump is located on the side of the main sump assembly underneath the dishwasher.

E21 error is showing on my electrolux EWF14811 washing machine. What does this mean and how do I clear it?


E21 means a problem with the water draining.
Could be defective: drain pump, pressure switch, wiring, current leak between heating element and ground and finally main board.
Also could be drain filter or drain tube (kinked or clogged) and leaks from water circuit on pressure switch.

After dishwasher run through it's cycle, the water does not drain properly and remains in bottom of the dishwasher


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. 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.

Washer won't drain. Water remains in bottom of washer after cycled is complete.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Each year when we get back from vacation the Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUD J230YWH1 will run but the water won't drain out.


It is possible that while you are gone, debris may all float down to the drain and drain screen and settle there causing a buildup. I would check the drain and drain screen.

DISHES REMAIN WET AFTER DRY CYCLE. HEATER WORKS. IS THERE A VENT THAT COULD BE CLOGGED OR A PUMP FOR DRYING THAT DOESN'T WORK? THANKS


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the dishwasher is draining properly and is working perfectly fine then you'll need to open up the Dishwasher and check the heating element as that could have gone bad. You can get to the heating element from underneath by pulling the unit out and then tilting it backwards. If its not draining properly then check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
