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.

If you are noticing problems such as sewer backups or suspect a leak, a pipe inspection is essential.
