Default Whirlpool dishwasher wont drain
Model Number: DU810SWPQ3   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I could use some suggestions on this dishwasher..

It was not draining so I took out the hose and sump and check ball.. it was coated with grease and hardened cornbread powder?

I even turn the impeller and it does not appear to be stuck at all. I put everything back and ran the dishwasher..

it still would not drain!

I am curious to know how to check the check valve for this unit.. It is integraged with Manufacturer Number 8520839..

thanks in advance

Does it wash?

Did you clean the ball?

washes fine.. just does not drain..

I cleaned the ball and the sump area.. How do I determine if the check valve is good or bad?

I may have to take the pump assembly out to check (I hope not).. is there a trick to removing the sprayer assembly?

thanks in advance

How much water is left inside the dishwasher?

Where the drain hose is connected to? Do you have an air gap installed on top of the sink?

a lot of water.. 1 to 1.5 inch..

the drain hose is connected directly to the garbage disposal.. no air gap installed on top of sink.

thanks again

Disconnect the drain hose from the garbage disposal and put it in a large bucket. Check how it will drain.

Gene.
P.S. Did you replace the garbage disposal recently?

One more thing you may want to check: does the motor run when the control calls for drain?

The motor in this dishwasher is reversible what means it turns in opposite direction for drain. Slowly turn the knob. The motor should stop for a few seconds and switch from wash to drain.
