1 Answer

Not Draining I pulled the filter cover off and found some glass and plastic in the filter area,cleaned it out and it still will not drain.I don't know if this plays into the problem or not,but I replaced the old garbage disposer with a new one.The first time I used the dishwasher after installing the garbage disposer is when I started having the draining problem.

Dishwasher will not drain. water stays on the bottom of the unit/

Not knowing what make or model you have I can only give you general advice. As a Maintenance Supervisor for an Apartment complex, I run into this all of the time.You will need to start by cleaning out the filter basket. it is under the plastic grate at the bottom of your dishwasher inside of the unit. There are a couple of things you will need to remove, but it is usually just a matter of a few screws. I find food, broken glass, (Be Careful), plastic wrappers and on and on. With this clogged or any impeded water flow the water will not drain. The other area to check is the airgap located on top of your sink. Pop the top off and carefully remove the plastic insert and see it that is clogged. Unless your pump is broken which is doubtful, these are the only two areas that will keep your dishwasher from draining.

My washing machine is not draining

You can try this: It's for the Kenmore/Whirlpool models..

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels, a good big plastic bag or a wet vac to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Viking dish washer won't drain

Try clearing the air gap (which is the seemingly pointless thing that is near your kitchen faucet.)

1.Take off the shiny metal cover, and you can sometimes twist off the plastic cap, or you may need to use needle nose pliers to push in the tabs that hold it in. You may or may not see debris in the tube that is in the air-gap.

2. Now what you need to do is take a clear glass and put it over the air-gap with part of the glass hanging over the edge of the sink, you may want to put a towel around the other side of the glass to keep the water from going all over the counter, turn the dishwasher off then on again and select "rinse and hold". If there is any thing in the line it will come out.

3.If not you may need to take out the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher and on the left hand side in the sump area there is a small, (usually yellow) cap that covers the drain motor impeller that can usually be pulled towards the center/right by hand, if not with needle nose pliers. You will need to vacuum out the water with a wet/dry vacuum or towels.

If none of this works, let me know and I will go over some more uncommon draining problems.

Standing water after cleaning dishes

Clean out the air gap. Remove decorative cover by pulling up. Remove plastic dome by gripping and moving side to side while pulling it up. When you get the dome off you can see if the air gap is partially blocked.
