Dishwasher wont drain

8 posts in this topic

I have a whirlpool DU912PFGB0 That does not drain, I cant tell if the pump is pumping, The hose was not clogged, no garbage disposal, not sure if there is a check valve in there somewhere?

Any Help, or even service manual would be greatly appriciated,

Thanks,

Dave

There is a check valve P/N 675238 located on the right hand side of the motor where the drain hose attaches.  You can remove the drain hose and unscrew the check valve (counterclockwise) and look for a restriction.  Make sure the rubber flapper is intact and not binding.

Have you tried 'suck starting' it with a Shop Vac? Sometimes that's all it takes... :thumbsup:

Thanks, that was it was a little bit of junk in the valve, didnt realize that came off when I first looked at it.  Also at first when taking the hose off you could see that draining, but i guess when the pump runs it was forcing it down and causing more of a blockage.

 

thanks a bunch for your help
