A combination of baking soda and white vinegar can dissolve minor drain clogs in your dishwasher. To use it, you will have to remove your drain hose. Then loosen the screws that hold the dishwasher in place, and then move the dishwasher itself. The drain hose is usually at the back towards the bottom of the machine.

The baking soda can cause clumping and clog the dispenser. Instead, sprinkle 1/2 cup baking soda into the empty washer tub before you load the clothes. If you have particularly smelly clothes, using a full cup of baking soda will not harm your washer.

Why will my washing machine not drain?

If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Why is my washing machine drain backing up?

A clogged drain causes water to back up into the standpipe and spill on the floor. Clearing the clogged drain will usually resolve the problem. The clog could either be in this trap area, or it could be further down the drain line. To determine where the clog is located, first, fill the washing machine with water.

Can Drano be used in a dishwasher?

If the sink fills up with water when the dishwasher empties, then that drain may be blocked and by all means pour Drano down the sink. But don't pour it in the dishwasher. It won't do any good and it may harm the pumps and seals. Drano (and probably other drain cleaners) are pretty caustic and corrosive.

Why is there water left in the bottom of my dishwasher?

A dishwasher filter/trap/drainage basket that is clogged with chunks of food is the leading reason water remains at the bottom of a dishwasher. Water should never be in the dishwasher at the end of the wash cycle. At the end of the cycle, the dirty water is pumped out during the drain cycle.
