Water is draining out of the washer continuously. If I manually pour water into the basin it just drains out. Is there a drain solenoid that may be stuck open?

Mike M. for Model Number 665.13152k701

ANSWER Hello Mike, If you read the installation instructions, it explains in there to elevate the drain line to counter top level. The purpose of this is to prevent sink water from filling the dishwasher. The other point it makes is the necessity of an air break or siphon break. This prevents the weight of the water going down the drain from pulling the water from the unit. Most dishwashers are drained into the sink drain because this provides an air break to prevent the siphoning effect from taking place. When a dishwasher has a valve, it is only to prevent the circulation pump from pushing the water from the unit during water distribution inside the unit during the wash cycle.
