Dishwasher Problems - Water will not drain out
Posted on May 15, 2010
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.
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.
