    The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.









    To access the drain hose remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

    The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.

    checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.
    Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through

    Dishwashers either have a single direction motor or a reversing motor. Only those with a single direction motor have a drain valve. Models with a reversing motor, pump the water out of the dishwasher when the motor runs in the reverse direction. If your motor has two or three wires, it is a single direction motor. If the motor has four wires, it is a reversing motor and you can skip this

    The drain valve is typically near the motor although it can be located elsewhere. Look for a water hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose should lead to the drain valve. The valve consists of the the gate arm mechanism and a solenoid (also called a coil). The gate arm allows the water to flow out of the dishwasher's tub through the drain valve. You should be able to move the gate arm up and down easily and smoothly. The gate arm also has two springs attached to it. If either of the springs is missing or damaged, they should be replaced.

    Dishwashers either have a single
    direction motor or a reversing motor. Only those with a single
    direction motor have a drain valve. Models with a reversing motor,
    pump the water out of the dishwasher when the motor runs in the
    reverse direction. If your motor has two or three wires, it is
    a single direction motor. If the motor has four wires, it is a
    reversing motor and you can skip this article.
















    To access the drain valve remove
    the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually
    held in place with two screws either above or below the panel.
    It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to
    reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove
    the panel.

    The drain valve is typically near
    the motor although it can be located elsewhere. Look for a water
    hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose
    should lead to the drain valve. The valve consists of the the

    down easily and smoothly. The gate arm also has two springs attached
    to it. If either of the springs is missing or damaged, they should
    be replaced.

    The gate arm mechanism is engaged
    by the drain valve solenoid. The solenoid is connected by two
    wires. Label the wire placement on the solenoid before disconnecting
    the wires. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly
    pull the connector off of the solenoid's terminals (do not pull
    on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers
    to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals
    for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

    Test the solenoid for resistance
    using a multitester.
    Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each
    terminal. The multitester should change from a reading of infinity
    to roughly 40 ohms when the probes touch the terminals. If the
    reading is infinity or substantially different from 40 ohms, the
    solenoid should be replaced.

HI,

f the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Is it normal for 2 inches of water to remain in space where filter container is positioned...whenever filter is removed water is in the compartment where filter rests


In my experience the lowest section of the washer has always retained some water about a cup or two. If the one way valve(check valve) in the drain hose has failed or residue trapped in it more water will drain back at the end of cycle. You can see from the image the volume of additional water that would be trapped in the hose that if the one way valve leaks; the water in the hose would leak back into the tub.

the drain hose is required to go above the drain connection to prevent back flow into the washer. the one way valve in the drain hose is required to prevent back flow into the tub in the event of a blocked drain.

I hope that this helps.

Check Valve Replacement part 8268375 Whirlpool Dishwasher Repair

In some washers the check valve is critical because the pump reverses during the normal cycle. The attached video is an example of the check valve replacement in a Whirlpool. I have found all washers are similar.

You can usually hear when the pump has emptied the tub by a change of pitch from the motor. If you quickly open the door and observe the remaining water level that is as low as I would expect.

After dishwaher cycle complted water still remains


There is possibly a partial blockage in the outlet, preventing the water from draining out in the preset time. Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.

Dishwater odor


Lots of ideas,,, Try cycling the dishwasher without dishes on the hottest setting and about 10 miutes into that cycle..stop it and add 2 ups of white vinegar to the water.. let it complete the cycle..

The problem is that standing water with food byproducts will begin to smell as they break down. Like all dishwahers, there is always a small amount of water that remains in the drain system at all times so it is important to clean the filter trap and to periodically air it out or use the white vinegar method..
Hope this helps you...

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer instructions).

Dishwaher


Generally, you need only hot water. It is advisable that the drain line be a little lower than used by a washer. Drains usually go into a modified portion of the sink's j bend in the drain. This sits at about 18 inches off the floor. You should fuse your electric line for 20 amps at 120 volts or 15 amps at 240, depending on your location. North American units are at 120.
