Does your dishwasher not drain or not drain completely? You might need to call a repairman, but try these three simple tests first.
The fix for a dishwasher not draining is often something simple you can do yourself. So before you call a pro, troubleshoot using the following steps.
One of the most common problems that occur with a dishwasher is that it will will Allow the water to drain into the bucket or container if any exists
- The dishwasher drain hose must contain a high drain loop for the dishwasher to be able to drain. The high drain loop must be attached to the underside of the counter and attached to the sink at a specific height. Measure the height from the floor to the highest point of the drain hose and make sure the height matches what is in the installation instructions
- Make sure there is not paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub. Clear out large pieces of food from the bottom of the dishwasher, like noodles, lettuce, bones, etc.
- If a disposer was recently installed make sure the drain plug inside the disposer was removed. Instructions for removing the drain plug are located in the disposer’s installation instructions.
- Turn off the power to the dishwasher at the main panel or unplug it under the sink. Also turn off the water to the dishwasher at the nearest shutoff valve, usually the hot water shutoff under the sink. Or shut it off at the water heater. Consider removing the cabinet doors from your sink base to make disconnecting the drain lines easier as you begin the how to hook up a dishwasher task.
