Turn off the circuit breaker that controls the dishwasher.
Open the dishwasher door. Locate the two small screws holding the bottom valance trim piece. Remove the screws and the valance, revealing the lower pump assembly and drain-hose connection.
Remove the hose clamp. Disconnect the drain line by pulling the hose.
Find the other end of the drain line under the sink; it is connected to the drain tail piece or the garbage disposal. Remove the hose clamp and disconnect the drain line. The dishwasher drain hose is now disconnected at both ends.
Pull the dishwasher drain hose into the sink base through the hole between the dishwasher and the sink base.
Take the dishwasher drain hose outside or to a wash sink. Run hot water through the line to clean and unclog it. When you see water running freely through the hose, then it is clean. If the hose cannot be cleaned, replace it with a new drain hose of the same size and length.
Feed the clean dishwasher drain hose back to its original configuration. Reconnect both hose clamps. Reinstall the valance, turn on the circuit breaker and test-run the dishwasher.
for using FixYa. OE is a drain error, it flashes when the washer won’t drain
within 10 minutes. TO resolve this issue you’ll have to check the drain pump
filter for any clogs, also check the drain hose for any kinks and clean the
drain pump filter. If still the issue is not resolved then you might have to
replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post
a comment for further assistance.
This sounds most likely to be a lower radiator hose leak (very common). It may be just as simple as tightening the hose clamp holding the hose to the radiator. If tightening the clamp does not work, replace the hose. When replacing the hose you must first drain all the coolant from the radiator and engine. Once its all drained, loosen the hose clamps on the hose thats leaking, pull the hose off and replace it with a new one. Tighten down the hose clamps and add coolant.
If this is the same leak I just fixed, it is worth fixing ($12 dollar part from repairclinic.com), but takes some skill at taking it apart and putting it back together.
My leak was from a black rubber hose that connect the drum to the filter area and recirculating and drain pumps. The repair can be done from the front of the machine.
1. Drain the machine - pry the panel at the front left lower corner to get access to a stoppered tube. drain as much water from here as possible.
2. Remove screw visible inside this area and remove the white molded plastic - also remove the screw behind that plastic.
3. Open the washer door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door gasket. Carefully pull the door gasket away from the panel push inside and then reclose the door.
4. Remove the detergent drawer and the two screws visible behind it.
5. Pull the top of the electronics panel away from the machine and lift up - place on top of machine or hook it out of the way
6 Remove the 4 screws that are visible holding the front panel to the machine. Left the entire front panel up about 2 inches and swing to the right (there is a wire connecting the door to the machine on the right)
7. You can now see inside the machine and hopefully see where your leak is comming from. The black rubber hose connecting the drum to the drain area is where my leak developed because this is designed to flex as the machine tumbles and spins but ultimately wears out. It is connected with two clams that can be removed with pliers and a third hose clamp that diconnects with a phillips head screw driver.
Hi Krazytech here,
You will have to remove the cabinet to get to the pump end of the drain hose. First you must remove the top insert a putty knife to open the top lift up then remove screws that hold on the top then remove the screws that hold on the bottom. then you can get to the pump I alway replace the factory spring clamps with a screw hose clamp they are much better.. let me know
