Yes tyhere is a pump that pumps the water out. Sounds like the pump has failed. Make sure to have the model number and serial number of the machine when you call to have it serviced. Since you have taken it apart already, this might be a repair you can do. Remember, unplug the unit before attempting any repairs

Water does not empty from dishwasher


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 do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

WHICH BUTTONS DO I PRESS TO FORCE THE DISH DRAWER TO DRAIN EXCESS WATER?


Just run the shortest wash cycle and check if it empties in the end. If not, then you have some blockage in the filter sump.

Go to the part of the user guide which explains how to clean drain filter and filter plate.

Hope this solves the problem.

Found lots of fluff from a previous wash. Next wash the machine failed to empty. Did persist & a trickle of water arrived, machine is now almost empty of water, least enough open the door. Possible...


To clean pump you will need to unplug machine, at rear using screwdriver remove the panel at bottom of machine. depending on fitting of clip holding pipe onto your pump, use suitable tool to remove the clip. You can now remove the pipe from the pump. check inside the pump also.If you need to remove the tub end of this pipe there is what is like a ping pong ball within the pipe. Make sure you refit this as it acts as a non return for the water.

Washing machine will not empty out not a year old yet tecnik 9909 no filters to clean in the front of machine. Any answers?


Hi
Before examining the fault, it is usually worth trying to empty the machine manually, this can be done by removing the outlet pipe and lowering it into a bucket, when gravity should allow the water to empty from the machine. This method will not work with certain German made machines where the mounting for the outlet hose is too high to allow a gravity discharge.
Often the reason for non-emptying is a blockage. This usually involves removing the pipe connecting the bottom of the tub to the pump, but be careful because dirty water will gush out. The blockage could be due to a lost item of underwear or a broken-up soap ball. The soap ball is a supposed to make the machine more efficient by keeping the soap in the tub, but it frequently jams and causes machine emptying problems. If there is no obvious blockage then you need to check the pump, which you can do by putting the machine on an empty cycle and listening to see if the pump is turning. However, even if the pump is rotating it is possible that the rotor has come loose or has broken vanes, so you really need to check that it can generate water flow. If the pump is not turning then check for an obstruction directly in the pump, such as a coin or bra-wire. If the pump is working fine, then the trickiest problem of all could be a coin in the outlet pipe. This is a hard one to diagnose because this kind of item is very difficult to find. The best cure for this is to have a pole which is close to the internal diameter of the pipe and shove it from one end to another.

Dishwasher clogs, water wont empty


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. 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.

Bosch washing m/c wf2000 pump not working


it may be as simple as a blocked pipe. Check the outlet under the sink it may be full of hair/fluff etc. If you can disconnect the outflow pipe from the u-bend under the sink, first check that the end of the outflow pipe is not blocked, then check the u-bend for blockages. If these are both clear then the pump itself may have a blockage. If you know how to get to the pump, then ask someone to help you take the outflow pipe away from the pump so you can check the pump and pipe for blockages. Be prepared for plenty of gushing water if you remove the pipe away from the pump, and have a pot or something ready under the sink for when you check the pipe at that end. I hope this helps.

Water will not empty


Hello
you either have a blockage in the filter or you pump is not working.
how to check is diconnect the waste pipe and lower it to ground level if the water does not empty then its a blockage. if it empties then its the pump.
other things it can be is a blockage where the waste pipe is connected or a loose wire to the pump..

I can confirm Solution #2.

This usually happens whe you have a blockage in the waste pipe. For some reason, once you've cleared the blockage, the dishwasher doesn't detect that water has now passed through the system, even if you send through more water via filling the base (I did this about 4 times totalling 24litres of water and it still didn't reset).

Tilt the dishwasher back (I only had to tilt it about 30 degrees), this resets whatever switch it is that turns the pump off and allows it to fill with water.
