Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Is your unit connected to a garbage disposal? Was your old dishwasher connected to a garbage disposal? Is the disposal new?
OK is the disposal new?
OK and it worked with the old dishwasher correct?
OK I just wanted to make sure the knock out plug on the disposal was removed and it sounds like it was if it worked with the old dishwasher. But if you're not 100% sure then put the hose in a 5 gallon bucket instead of connected to the disposal and see if it'll drain. Other than that that, if the hose isn't kinked then either the wires to the drain pump became disconnected or the pump came faulty from the factory or possibly the black flow preventer flap where the drain hose connects under the dishwasher is stuck closed and won't open. It's a new unit so I'd call warranty to have them check it out but if you wanted to do it yourself you'd pull the dishwasher out and disconnect the drain hose and make sure the rubber backflow flap isn't stuck. Then make sure the pump has the power wires connected. If it's anything other than that it would require a part replacement so you'd need to call warranty anyways.
