Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

My whirlpool dishwasher is not draining completely. It runs through the entire cycle with no problems, except that after it has finished, there is a layer of water on the bottom of the diswasher.

Hi, there will always be some water in the bottom the tub. This is called the sump. When your pump stops draining, all the water that's up in the hose will drain back into the sump. You failed to tell me how much water is there. If a small amount then it's normal, however if it's a large amount that covers 1/2" or so then you indeed have a problem and snaking out the lateral should clear it up.

    There is more about an inch of water in the tub. How do I go about snaking out the lateral?

    Hi, remove the drain line going to the garbage disp. Take your shop vac and seal the drain line from the dishwasher into the shop vac hose with your hand amd **** off the water.

Whirlpool dishwasher, quiet partner 1. Does not drain, does not finish wash cycle.


ensure your dishwasher pump and drain hose are unobstructed. If your machine does not drain it will not refill with fresh rinse water and since it can't do that the cycle will never finish.

Many people don't completely rinse off food stuffs from their dishware, expecting the dishwasher to take care of it. To be honest, a dishwasher is more of a fine cleaning and disinfecting device than a pot scrubber. Because of this, grease, food debris, etc can clog the pump or drain line over time. be sure to use a good de-greasing agent regularly once the flow of water has been cleared (don't wash your dishes with it however)

I have a Fisher Paykel DD24 dishwasher and when using top drawer after wash cycle is complete there is always water in drawer. Top drawer is unable to drain water after wash cycle is complete...what can I...


If the cycle is complete and dishes are clean, then you need to worry. Try to pull the drain hose up a bit under the sink. Also buy a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit and run dishwasher as per instructions on the kit. That should clean any obsrtuctions in the drain side.

Dishwasher won't drain.Leaves several inches of water in bottom of unit after cycle is complete


Check for blockages in the base of the dishwasher under filter etc.
Also make sure the kitchen drain is clear and if you have garbage disposer run it prior to running the dishwasher.

Also need to confirm if the dishwasher pump is actually operating during the drain cycle. If the pump is faulty then it will not drain. Provide full model number of dishwasher if you need further assessment of the problem. Good luck.

The G638 finished its cycle but didn't completely


pump maybe on it's way out, though i doubt it, is the washing machine on the same drain out? if so you may have back wash, another could be lengh of drain hose, i had the same problem with my miele dishwasher because of the position in the kitchen i doubled up the drain hose and though it pumped out fine, with the volume of water left in the hose it came back in untill i repositioned the drain hose so it could't run back, hope this helps.

Doesn't drain after "normal cycle" is run


It does sound like you have a switch problem or like the knob is simply getting stuck. Try taking it off and cleaning it if possible. Most common hardware problems with draining you have water at the bottom and it will not drain no matter what untill you clean the drain hose or a valve. Good news is that it doesn't sound like an expensive fix. Good luck.

Kenmore dishwasher not draining when finished full cleaning cycle


sounds like a cycle timer problem. Look for a loose wire on the cycle timer. If yours is a digital timer, it is a board issue. Sorry.
