October 6, 2006, Newsletter Issue #12: My Dishwasher Won't Drain

Tip of the Week

A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged. You won't need to call your Frigidaire certified parts specialist or other name brand repair specialist to fix that particular problem, just clear the blockage and snake out the pipe if necessary. If you still have drainage problems after doing this, check your drain hose to make sure there are no kinks or bends. If you find that the hose is too worn out, you can replace it. This dishwasher part is inexpensive and you can use any brand that fits. This is one instance where it won't matter whether you use Frigidaire dishwasher parts, a General Electric part or any other brand. You may find that the hose or the drain valve is clogged, in which case you can pull the dishwasher out, remove the hose and clear the blockage.
