    Default Non complete drain diswasher

    Model - TUD5700EQ4 ( Estate)

    Daughters dishwasher leaves water in the bottom. There is a garbage disposal connected to the sink next to it. I intend to check it if necessary. My problem right now is I do not know how to get to the pump and macerator on the thing. I thought I needed to remove the grill like piece in the back on the floor of the washer. it and the other parts do not seem to want to unsnap like I thought they might or have screws I could see.

    Suggestions?

    No macerator on this style...





    Since this inlet is located in an area that is relatively free of water turbulence, food particles washed
    from the dishes can collect in this area and fall through the funnel and accumulate in the collector. Food particles continue to collect as long as the dishwasher is in the Wash mode.
    When the Wash cycle is finished, the dishwasher will reverse the direction of the motor and enter the
    Drain mode. Water is pumped into the port at the bottom of the soil collector during the Drain cycle
    causing the ball in the collector to rise against the opening in the bottom of the funnel. Water flows
    through and out of the collector through the top port and into the drain line. Food particles
    collected during the Wash cycle are carried out with the drain water. When the Drain cycle ends and
    the pump stops running, the ball settles to the bottom of the collector.

    So do the pieces snap together? I thought I could pull up on the spray arm to remove it. Looks like I may have to take it outside to avoid the risk of the excess water getting on the floor?

    Would it be a waste of time to disconnect the drain at the garbage disposal, use a bucket and see if the dishwasher is trying to drain but can't because the disposal is clogged?

    As long as this thing has been used, I guess it is best to cover all bases while I am at it, if I can get it disassembled.

    Thanks for the diagram Jeff.

    #10 unscrews off with a large pipe wrench.

    A few well placed beach towels should help....or like you say take it outside.

    For sure.

    Sorry just now getting back to this. It would be a waste of time to see if the dispoal was clogged not letting the dishwasher drain? Hoping for something simple here.

    Can't seem to get much done lately, too many irons in the fire.

    Removed the disposal. The dishwasher seems to be doing fine now. I did notice the drain hose is going under the dishwasher. Shouldn't it be going over it?

    A copy from the install manual...

    Drain
    You must...

    ...use the new drain hose supplied with your dishwasher or a new drain hose that meets all current AHAM/IAPMO test
    standards and is resistant to heat and detergent. Maximum drain hose length is 12 feet (3.7 m).

    ...have a high drain loop 20 inches (50.8 cm) minimum above the subfloor or floor.

    ...connect drain hose to waste tee or disposer inlet above drain trap in house plumbing and 20 inches (50.8 cm) minimum above the floor.

    ...use an air gap if the drain hose is connected to house plumbing lower than 20 inches (50.8 cm) above subfloor or floor.

    ...use 1/2" minimum I.D. drain line fittings.

    *****

    Don't -have- to go over the d/w, but must have a loop at least 20" above the floor.....up and over the d/w is an easy way to accomplish this.
