SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher does not drain

Some Kenmore DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage. Remove toe panel, look for a long, white, plastic fitting attached the front, right side of the sump. Remove the drain hose from the valve. Unscrew the valve from the sump and inspect for debris inside the valve.

SOURCE: DIshwasher doesn't drain or fill

Hello annie8866,
First off.. unplug power and then reapply power to it for a little while to see if a power reset will put it back in the proper sequence.. next, check inside the base for a drain inlet and a filter/screen and clean anything you see out of it.. Then try cycling it without dishes to see if it will run thru a cycle and drain properly.. Its ok to add a cup or two of white vinegar during the wash process to remove byproducts of the wash from the inner components.. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged or kinked up.. Try these things and get back to me if it is still misbehaving..

SOURCE: My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)

most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher cleans but will not drain.

Remove the drain hose where it attaches to the disposal. This area often clogs and will prevent any d/w from draining.

I have a Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher. I put it on but it hasn't worked, it filled with water which won't drain not will it even start now. I took out the filter but I couldn't find any blockages Help!


Reset the power at the breaker, but you may need a new pump and motor assembly. The same pump washes and drains on most Hotpoint models- a solenoid is used to open a drain flap and let the water out, but a bad pump will equal no wash or drain...

Whistling sound


Kind of hard to tell without hearing it. Also when does it occur? During the fill portion of the cycle? During the main wash period? Or during the drain portion of the cycle? Also how old is this dishwasher?
If I had to guess (and I do, since I don't have the answers to the above questions), I would think that the bearings of the main wash motor were going bad; especially if the dishwasher is more than 7 or 8 years of age.

My MDB5600AWW isn't cleaning the dishes. Even easy stuff like wet pasta sauce. I watched/listened and discovered the water is not staying in the tub during wash cycles. It fills, then slowly (1-2 mins)...


Hi,
Check the drain hose... it sounds like it has fallen down too low and is not looped high enough to keep the water in the tub....this will let the water drain right out as it fills like you are saying...

We have a Whirlpool ADG 6552 dishwasher.It fills and it drains but it does not spray or wash. Is it the solenoid? can it be fixed?


sounds as if the pump motor has gone out. This motor pumps the water from the bottom of the dishwasher throughout the unit. The solenoid that i think your refering to is the solenoid that activates the drain pump. I would think the pump motor is either stuck and if you can get6 to the back of it you may be able to use a screw driver to spin the fin on the back of the motor to unfreeze it. If this doesnt work then the motor has gone out and will need to be replaced

Dishwasher not spraying/pumping water in wash cycle


If your dishwasher is filling, draining and the heating element is working then the wash pump motor has probably failed.

You have not provided the manufacturer and model number, so I have no way of knowing if your dishwasher has a separate drain and wash pump motor.

Motor bad. If you are getting power to the motor then the motor is bad.
