    Is the drainage tube blocked? Is the machine actually performing the drain? If there are no pump sounds / can't hear running water, there may be a problem with the pump.

My Frigidaire dishwasher would not drain yet I could hear the pump working. So I disconnected the power, hot water supply, drain line, and two screws attaching the washer to the cabinet. Pulled the unit out from under the cabinet and inspected the drain line. It was clogged pretty good with grease build-up. There was no water getting through. The grease clog was about 3 inches long and solid. I attached one end of the drain line to a faucet, used the clamp to keep it on the faucet, ran hot water through the line and the clog was forced out. I put it all back together again and it worked just fine.

Have you checked the drain hose??? It may be clogged to some degree or where it meets either the garbage disposal or t-tailpiece, whichever you have, or where it comes out of the water pump. Also, the impeller inside the water pump might look good but may be worn, and check for broken glass which is hard to see in the bottom drain area at the grate. Hope this helps.

If you hear the drain pump running but water stays in the bottom then you have to check if the kitchen sink drain is clear. More particularly if you have a garbage disposal unit in kitchen sink then make sure it is working and has been cleared before running the dishwasher. In case you do not hear any drain pump or it is rough and not draining then it may need to be replaced. The drain pump is available from this site.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher

If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

Was draining slow, now not draining at all

Suggest if you hear motor running and no draining while in drain that you unhook the hose under the sink. The drain hose is the hose coming from the center bottom of the dishwasher to the drain stand under the sink or the side of the garbage disposal. Have a pail and see if it pumps it into the pail, you may have a plug or a kink, you will see what I mean when you try this..........

good luck

(also saw one plugged at check valve once where drain hose is connected to dishwasher, it is a small opening with a one way flap to prevent drain water from going backwards, but it is a small opening)

Hi, I installed LG dishwasher, control board is working, water is coming from the water line but when hooked up to the dishwasher and dishwasher is on, there is no water coming into the dishwasher....

it should drain a bit of water out before it fills when it first starts. if that water doesn't drain out then you may have a drain pump fault. You can test this by dumping a few glasses of water into the machine then starting it up ( you should hear it drain that water out)
if that worked... then you have a fill solenoid fault or a line filter fault.You can check power to the fill solenoid or give it a couple of taps when its suppose to be filling to see if its just stuck. the inline filter could be plugged where you hook up the water supply to the machine (clean it or take it right out)

Wont drain

Pull out the bottom rack and make sure strainer is clear. If the outer strainer is clear remove the few screws around it to get to the other strainer to make sure it is also clear.

Dishwasher does not drain

My dishwasher will not drain. The water stays in the bottom of the dishwasher. When it should drain, I do not hear anything happening where I used to hear the pump working. Is my pump bad?
