Dishwasher Troubleshooting

If your dishwasher runs but won’t drain, there are several things that could be going wrong. If it sounds like a motor is running during the drain cycle, it could be a broken impeller, which pushes water into the drain line.

The impeller is fairly easily replaced with the right tools. If you do not hear a motor, the pump might be broken and needs to be replaced. Finally, if you have recently had a garbage disposal installed, it’s possible the technician forgot to remove the plug allowing water to enter the disposal from the water drain line.

Proper drain line installation prevents back-ups which can lead to odors and contamination
