Question about KitchenAid KUDS01DJ - Multiple Color Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher smells after use

I've checked the drain hose and it "appears" that it's not blocked although I don't hear the water draining into the garbage disposal. I's alo taking 3 hours instead of the usual one hour to complete a full cycle.
Any ideas??

Whirlpool dishwasher WDF520PADM5 won't drain. It will run through a cycle, but leaves a few inches of water at the bottom.


If the garbage disposal is clogged, the water from the dishwasher cannot drain. Most of the time the dishwasher drain hose is connected into the garbage disposal. Check to be sure water flows freely into the garbage disposal. You should hear it running into the bottom of the disposal when the dishwasher drains. The line connects to the garbage disposal at the top of the disposal with a hose clamp. If you undo it take the hose off and make sure the punch out inside the disposal tube is all the way punched out and there are no restrictions in their..ie stuck food particles or something else. Unplug the disposal when working on it. Just to be safe.
Hope this helps.

How do i fix an SE error code on my Samsung dishwasher


The SE or 5E error code means "Draining Error", which coincides with what you observed. First check the drain hose for an obstruction, especially where it goes into the garbage disposer (and check the garbage disposer port to make sure it is clear too). If that's okay, then you will have to pull the dishwasher out to check the drain pump. Chances are, some foreigh object has gotten into the drain pump, and is blocking or partially blocking the water flow. If everything is OK, then you probably have a bad ECS sensor, and will have to replace it. If most of this is beyond what you want to do, at least check the hose at the garbage disposal end before you call a repairman.

Whirpool built-in puddle of water in bottom, food on drain


see this causes and proceed according. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

My dishwasher will not drain


Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, if it did not work then your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

If you are having problems getting the water to drain out of your dishwasher then there are a few things that you need to check out.

First check the drain hose that it has not gotten pinched anywhere. Then check it to see if it may be plugged with dirt and debris. If you have it hooked to a garbage disposal make sure that the hole into the garbage disposal is open.

If all of that checks out, then check the screen inside at the bottom of the dishwasher. Excessive food buildup will block the flow of the water into the pump.

If that is clear then you may need to remove the bottom rack, and the bottom spray arm. This will allow access into the pump. Some dishwashers have a diverter flap that opens to allow the water into the bottom impeller, which is the pump out impeller. Also check that the bottom impeller is in good shape and not deformed. The switch that operates the diverter flap can also go bad. You need to check that it can operate and that is does if power is applied to it.

By checking all of these things you should be able to find your problem. You may have to take the time to eliminate the problems one by one till you get to the cause of your problem.

Dishwasher won't drain properly


there are several possible causes for your trouble. begin by disconnecting the drain hose at both ends and checking to be sure it is not partially blocked. Then check the pump to be sure there is no chunk of glass or other debris partially blocking it.

Dishwasher (Kenmore 665 Ultra Wash) won't drain. Suggestions?


HI.This is a drain issue. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

Ok, if the hoses are ok and not clogged, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the drain assembly or pump impeller.

replace the pump(drain) if found to be faulty.

Dishwasher doesn't drain


how do you check to see if the pump is pumping? The drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. The garbage disposal is not clogged either.
