Whirlpool DW wont drain...

2 posts in this topic

Whirlpool model # Du8150Xb-1 :  made in 1994

washer now has issue with standing water in bottom after every wash.

took off hose underneath,  also cleared the drain hole near bottom right below dishes.

drain hose from air gap to washer clear and new.

Any ideas?



already checked

new disposer installed but knockout plug is definitely gone. issue was before the disposer was isntalled.

Doesnt appear to have a check valve on this model???

Were getting tired of scooping out water with a cup after wash cycle....

disconnect drain hose from air gap and attempt to pump water out into bucket,if no go, disassemble top of pump and take a visual on pump housing,impeller condition.  check valve is probably inside the drain outlet of pump, could be just a rubber flap, need to have one though,and needs to be clear.
