Dish washer does not drain in the final cycle. Water stays in and covers the electric element. After washing is finished there is water left behind in dish washer. Pump works, drain hose is ok, then what is the problem and how to solve?
Answer Hi Sunli. Get a bucket. Unhook the drain hose at the sink connection. Put a screwdriver inside the sink drain and see if it is clear. Clean any debris there. Look at the drain hose end and clear any clogs there. Put the hose into the bucket. Advance the unit into a cancel-drain cylcle and does it drain well now ? Then the pump is clear. Make sure there is a loop into the drain hoe clamped up on the highest part of the back wall under the sink. This makes a P-trap so that the sink drain does not go back into the dishwasher. Unhook the hoses at the pump. Are they clogged there ? Clear if necessary. Feel the inside pump impeller and see if the impeller is spinning loose on the drain pump shaft. If so it is part # 154640201. Then remove the racks. Remove all from the top and carefully work yourself down to the bottom and see if there is a clog there. Use a wet shop vac and towels to help with the water pick up. Use dishwasher magic part # TJ104 monthly in the future to insure proper performance levels. Thank You.
Timer on frigidaire dishwasher sticks at 7 o'clock on heated cycles. Have replaced element and hi limit thermostat but hasn't help. What else could be defective?
Answer Johnny, You forgot to supply a model number, but, You want to check the water temperature in the bottom of the tub after the start of a cycle and the dishwasher starts to wash, the temperature needs to be at least 120 dgrs. F. for the timer to operate properly, then check the "tempboost" thermostat and wiring, it has to close the circuit at approximately 140 dgrs.F. in order to advance the timer in the heated wash option. Good Luck and Thanks.
