It's supposed to drain out the same drain pipe your sink uses. If it is overflowing into your sink, then your drain pipe is clogged. Your sink probably overflows when your disposal runs too, right? Unclog your pipe and you're good to go.

When my dish washer discharge water instead of the water going out the drain it come out the overflow valve.


The dishwasher usually drains into disposal, or directly into tailpiece, and water drains down to the p-trap.
Trap may be clogged or stopped up.
Clean out drain line, tighten connection where dishwasher attaches.
Clean out bottom of disposal under cutter blade.
Copy following link for clogged disposal, and drain line tips.

Kenmore Limited Edition 665 15899 draining incorrectly through overflow at top of sink. Is something plugged? How to fix?


Usually this type of setup (overflow) has a plugged or restricted hose going from it to the drain (or disposer).
If disposer, it is very common to have this port plug up over time.

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

hi just try this Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Was the selected cycle interrupted before completing?
The Clean light will come on when the cycle is complete. Wait until the Clean light comes on before trying to manually drain dishwasher. Press Cancel/Drain to try and drain the standing water.
Is the water level just covering the pump module?
This is normal. A small amount of water will be seen in the bottom of the sump area at the base of the pump. This is to ensure that the pump seal does not dry out.
Is the dishwasher drain hose connected to a garbage disposal?
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" (50.8 cm) above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped up so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.
Is the drain hose too long?
If the supplied drain hose was replaced with a longer one it must be shorter than 12' (3.7m).

Dishwasher Leaking From Overflow Valve at Sink


think you've already figured it out! clog could be in dw hose where it enters gd. check for kinks in hose. perhaps replace hose, if it looks funky! try running a sterilize cycle- the hot water may unclog the hose (if your machine has the option).
good luck!

first thing that i would check is your drain line at disposer or sink.under sink. check to make sure its not clogged up. both the hose and were the hose hooks uo to look inside and see if blocked if so clean out with a flat blade srewdriver and test it, if drains better then that was the problem, also check for a kincked or pinched drain hose, if all that is good sounds like maybe your drain pump is bad. hope this helps

How do you clean out a clogged drain hose from the garbage disposal to the dishwasher?


You may have to pull the dishwasher out and remove the clamp on the hose from the pump. run a snake or a coat hanger or anything else that you be long, flexible but stiff enough to move through the drain. You might be able to go from the disposal side back to the drain. This would be easier if you can. If you run water down the disposal side does it back up into the sink? If it does, then the clog is down below the disposal and not the dishwasher side.

How do you unclog the hose to a whirlpool gold dishwasher? It overflows into my sink. I have checked the hose and there doesn't appear to be a clog.


I had this same problem and solved it. The black rubber hose leading from my Disposal to the overflow vent on the sink corner was clogged. You will need to remove the hose via 2 hose clamps and scrape out the nasty gunk inside. Did I say Nasty???? I meant NASTY! I used a straight piece of 1/2" conduit to scrape the inside walls and then pushed a piece of rag through it again and again till it was clean. Don't forget to check the disposal nipple which leads into the grinding chamber. That thing was nastily clogged on mine. Had to use a knife or something (I don't recal) to scrape out the walls of this 2-3" deep opening. Works like a charm now.

I'll save you some trouble.....I took apart the vent and the dishwasher hose all for not! They were clean as a whistle. It was that dang disposal cauding all the problems.

Good luck! Hope this helps!
