Hi Singh,

The first thing I would check is the air gap on top of the sink (if any).

Remove the cap and the top piece and check for any clog.

The second thing I would check is the check valve (#15 on the pump & motor break down diagram).

Remove all water from the dishwasher, remove the bottom panel, disconnect the drain hose from the check valve and unscrew it. Check for any clog.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool dishwasher Model DU940PWKQ1 (basic model DU940PWK)

Good luck.
Gene.

I appreciate your help, Gene. The Check Valve was clogged. I cleared it, and the draining is working now.

In order to provide the most accurate advise I need the complete model number of the dishwasher and the most specific description of the problem.

Default thanks for your help Gene...

if you have a minute to give me some tips, it would be very helpful to me.

my friend just called me and said her dishwasher sprayed the water out through the drain thing on top of the sink. I'm guessing her main drain line is clogged, i'm heading that way tomorrow, i was just trying to be prepared before i arrive because i have never worked one dishwashers before. she has Whirlpool model DU 8400 XB1. If you can give me any tips it would be great.

Thanks ahead!

Check the hose from the air gap to the garbage disposal for a clog. If the garbage disposal has been replaced recently then most likely it was installed improperly. The new garbage disposal comes with the plastic plug in the dishwasher drain connection which has to be removed at time of installation.

PlanoRick,

Open the pump as described in one of our previous posts: whirlpool dishwasher and check the check valve (#5 on the diagram). Check the drain pump.

Here are the break down diagrams and the parts list for the Whirlpool dishwasher Model GU1500XTLT3
