Your filter or pump are clogged. Remove bottom filter and clean it out.
If that does not work you have to clean the pump

Dishwasher do not drain and do not wash properly


If there's a garbage disposal unit, that may be the problem .
Check the hose that runs from the dishwasher to the side of the disposal. If it's clogged with food stuff, the dishwasher might back up and not wash properly.

The last couple of months, taller glasses are not getting clean, have a food-like residue. No problems with other types of dishes. Tested water temperature, seems ok.


if your drain is connected to a disposal make sure the drain hose has an air break, the hose should be raised higher than the disposal drain connection, if not it will syphon food from disposal back into dishwasher, also if you have never ran cleaner through dishwasher that also may be your problem, the best thing that I have found to use is muratic acid, just a cap full with the unit empty

Water not draining after wash. Checked the troubleshooting guide and none apply to problem. It seems like the pump isn't running.


Have you purchased a new food waste disposer for the kitchen sink area? If so, make certain if you are draining the dishwasher directly into the food waste disposer, that you have removed the plug from the food disposer. Or you may be correct that the water pump is inoperable due to an obstruction or basic malfunction. Contact an appliance service company.

Dishwasher wont drain


Depending on the age of your dishwasher, it could be either a directdrive or forward reversing type. We've had both. Direct drive dishwasherssimply keep going as the water drains but forward-reversing ones havemotors which stop and then start (moving in the opposite direction) todrain water out of the dishwasher. It helps to know what type ofmachine you have. Obviously, if the motor isn't reversing properly,that could be the cause of a problem right there. But let's hope thatis not the case.

Next, think about whether you've installeda garbage disposal recently and if the dishwasher stopped drainingright after you installed the disposal.

Many dishwasherswon't drain or seem clogged after a garbage disposal is added to thesink area. Happily, this is not only a common problem but one which isusually resolved quickly. You'll simply have to check a piece calledthe knock-out plug. You can see what that looks like here: www.applianceaid.com/food.html#plug

Okay,so was your disposal installed without taking out the knockout plug?Oops! Simply remove it and you are good to go. Your dishwasher shouldnow drain smoothly. Simple.

The dishwasher doesn't seem to be draining. there is a pile of water on the bottom


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I installed a new bocsh dishwasher and garbage disposal. The water is not draining. I routed the drain hose on the floor rather than looping it up the back of the dishwasher, due the short lenght of drain...


If you did not remove the plug from the disposer drain where you made your drain connection will cause the dishwasher not to drain. This should have been mentioned in your installation instructions. Also, routing the drain hose other than what is specified in the instructions, will allow food waste to enter the dishwasher when you grind food in the disposer. Read your instructions and don't take shortcuts, you want to have your appliances work well for a long time, as you have made a considerable investment in some quality appliances.

Hope this helps!

My GE Dishwasher PDW8700N00BB has water standing in the pan over and above the normal 1 to 2 cups and I don't hear the same sound it used to make through the disposer when draining. Hose seems fine and no...


Drain line/air gap 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.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. 

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid 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.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. 

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.
