Dishwasher drain may be clogged by food waste, grease and debris. If water stops draining from the dishwasher, then this fact may indicate a clogged drain pipe or drain filters. To unclog the drain in the dishwasher, you need to remove the blockage from the drain hose, clean the drain pipe and wash the filters. To prevent re-clogging, follow the proper dishwasher care instructions.
Removing a blockage from the drain hose
Disconnect the dishwasher from the power supply. Be sure to unplug the dishwasher before cleaning the blockage. To do this, simply remove the plug from the socket, pull out the fuse on the electrical panel or turn the corresponding switch.
Consult the user manual. Your dishwasher user manual should tell you how to find and disconnect the hose from the dishwasher.
Disconnect the hose. When you find the hose, grasp the terminal with pliers and pull it off the hose. Place a bowl under the hose to prevent spilling water from spilling out.
Use a wire hanger or pipe cleaner to remove the blockage from the hose. After disconnecting the hose, shake it to loosen the blockage. Then remove the blockage by inserting a straightened hanger or cable into the hose.
Put the hose back and start the dishwasher. Connect the cleaned hose to the dishwasher. Connect the dishwasher to the power supply by plugging in and start a normal wash cycle without dishes. The water should now drain completely and not collect at the bottom of the device. If you need help with high end dishwasher repair, call us right now!
