Why Is The Dishwasher Not Draining?

    If your dishwasher has been in use for some time, and has not been moved, and there is excess water, the drain hose is probably clogged. If this is the case, your dishwasher needs service. Fill out an Online Service Request and begin the service process.    LEARN MORE

If water does not drain from the dishwasher, check the following:
  • Make sure the garbage disposal is not clogged.
  • Make sure food debris is not blocking the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Remove anything blocking the drain.

Note: The images below are from Waterwall models. Your dishwasher may be different, but the same principal applies.

  • Make sure the drain hose is not bent or kinked in a way that prevents water from draining. If it is, it needs to be straightened.

Note: A kinked drain hose usually occurs when the unit is first installed.
