No
the water will just run out if the hose is placed on the floor
mostly the problem is from items stuck in the pump impeller preventing the pump from spinning, blockage in the drain under the tub or motor not getting power
with the laundre saver ( suds saver) the pump rotation is reversed to draw water back from the washing tub so a reverse circuit is employed in the program board
it it is not sucking back and there is water in the laundry tub where the water was saved to, then call a technician to investigate the problem

Very slow to drain


Have a look inside the bend by removing the pipe. It could be clogged with food particles.

Fresh water and pump is on but no water is coming from taps


Does unit use water ONLY from pump? If so, make sure pump is actually running by feeling the pump. Is it emitting a small vibration? That is normal and probably means pump motor is running normally. If pump housing is excessively hot, pump may be locked up. If all appears normal and still no water, most likely culprit is broken impeller inside pump "Wet End" housing. Try disconnecting INLET hose to pump and check for presence of water. If none, pump is not your issue, your tank is dry. Also check pump OUTLET (pump off) for water. Disconnect hose, switch pump on momentarily. If pump discharges water here, you have a crimped or stopped up line or possibly a stopped up filter, if so equipped.

Washer will not drain even after changing water pump


There is a drain pump that is separate from the main pumps on most kenmore elites. There is also a check valve that could be stuck open. 8 of 10 times, however, if the machine was working fine and is now not fully draining, this is due to a drain hose pluggage or kink somewhere between the drain pump and the discharge into the sink. I've seen grease totally block the discharge into the sink trap and cause this problem. This should be thoroughly checked and must be 100% clear for the dw to drain properly.

Dishwasher would not drain


Your drain line some where is plugged or kinked. Try taking it off from under the sink where it is attached and blow should blow water or air into the dishwasher if not plugged

Discharge pump leaks


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

The pressure will not build up


Remove the air from the compressor using the drain valve.
Remove the discharge hose. The one that goes from the pump to the tank.
Remove the air filter (and check condition)
switch the compressor on an with your hand, partially cover the air intake where the air filter bolts on(be carfull not to fully cover it).
You should feel the pump drawing air in.
If it dosn't draw you have a broken/leaking valve or a blown cross-over gasket if it is of the type with a split valve plate.
You'd need to remove the head/valves/plate to confirm this.

If it did draw in air,
Stop the compressor & re-fit the discharge hose.
Now run for a few seconds and check the draw again.
If its suction reduces you also have a valve/plate/cross-over gasket problem.

If it draws fine.

stop the compressor and loosen the discharge hose at the tank end.
You may hear a short air leak at first, but you should not hear air contniously leaking.
If it continiously leaks air then the check valve in the tank is shot.
NOTE: NEVER remove this valve if the compressor has air in the tank/receiver.
This should locate your problem for you.

Whirlpool DUL200PKQ1 dishwasher won't drain. There is nothing blocking the drain and I've installed a new chopper-impeller kit. What's next?


Hello there
during the extraction cycle their is a drain solonoid valve that is supposed to open and let the water out, and the extraction pump will pump it out, so knowing this first when the unit gets to the point where it is supposed to drain listen carfully and see if you hear any clicking and if so good the solonoid is getting power next listen and see if you can hear the pump starts to hum if it does i would have to suggest that the solonoid is probably bad solonoid valves normally fail in the closed position which will not let any water pass thru it ok ?
