Washing Machine and Dishwashers Questions & Answers

The water isn't draining out of my dishwasher?

One of the most common reasons for a dishwasher to have standing water in it is because food debris has clogged up the drainage system within the appliance itself. It is sometimes possible to fix the issue yourself. Some things you could try are cleaning out the strainer basket or any filters and giving them a good wash under the tap then place them back into the dishwasher. Try checking the pump seal dishwasher door electrical source drain hose and anything else that could be potentially causing a blockage or issue. If none of these work we recommend that you use our PlumbConnect Plumbers Registry to locate a licensed plumber.
