Question about Dishwashers
If you have a fair amount of water in the bottom of most, if not all dishwashers then the problem solution involves one of several things to check.. First off.. is there a drain filter ( at the bottom of your dishwashere where the water gets drawn to the pump) that may be clogged up with waste material from the dishes? If that is clean... then the next thing I would check is for any kinks or clogs in the drain hose leading out to the drain system in your house.. ( many times the drain hose is attached to the side of the sink garbage disposal but it may have a direct attachement to the drain itself ( normally under the sink).. check that for obstructions.. and as a last resort.. if you do not see any kinks in that line.. you can detach it and cycle the dishwasher ( without dishes loaded) and run the dishwasher in a large bucket to see what kind of flow you get.. if you get a fairly good flow.. then you your pumping system is ok but your drain system in your home may be clogged ( improperly vented ) or restrictive to flow.. First things first.. check the drain screen, check the hose ... check the flow into a non restrictive bucket.. If the flow is weak.. then you may have a clogged or damaged pump.. Hope this helps you...
