When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

The hose detached from the garbage disposal. I re-attached it and now the water can't pump out of the bottom of the dishwasher


You have a clogged drain, remove the sink trap and use a plumber's snake to unstop the clog. Reattach the trap under the sink and disposal should drain. The pressure from the dishwasher pump more than likely caused the drain to slip loose, it's a drain, and it should not have any backpressure.

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

WHEN I RUN MY SINK IT DRAINS INTO MY DISHWASHER BOTTOM. I HAVE SNAKED THE HOLE AND IT STILL FILLS THE BOTTOM THEN I RUN IT EMPTY THEN FILL AND RUN AGAIN. HELP


The dishwasher drain line that connects to the garbage disposal or pipe under the sink should be looped above the height of disposal or pipe to prevent
sink water from backflowing into dishwasher.

Most dishwashers have some form of internal backflow preventer inside the water sump assy..
Yours may be degraded or stuck open.

Seems you answered your own question here. You need to make an air gap in the drain hose - take as much slack as possible and make a curve (upside down U) under you sink as high as you can go. Make sure you clip ot to back of the cabinet to stabilize it. Good luck

Cycle finishes but water is not draining


Sounds like too much water leftover.

Give me a make and model number of the dishwasher.

Check that the drain hose isn't kinked, and that where the drain connects at the garbage disposal at the sink isn't partially clogged. And, is the garbage disposal clean/clear of food stuff's.
I had a similar thing happen to me a few weeks ago, and it turned out the kitchen sink drain line was clogged.

Dble sink, one with the garbage disp. won't drain standing water


It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.

Dishwasher did not drain all the water


Your sink drain is clogged and the back pressure is not allowing the dishwasher to drain competely. Do not use a liquide drain cleaner, it will damage your disposal. take apart p-trap hopefully the clog is there, otherwise the line will need to be snaked.
