Hi Jpetford, If you go under the sink cabinet, you should see a small stem (metal rod) coming out of the back of the drain tube that is connected to the drain plug lever.

Unscrew the nut that is nearest the drain tube and that will allow you to pull out the drain plug lever and then the drain plug from the sink drain above. By doing this, both the drain plug and the stuck bottle brush should be able to be easily pulled out of the drain.

Once you've got them out, put the drain plug back in and rotate it to the back of the sink, so the little loop is lined up with the drain hole (under the sink) and then reinsert the drain lever stem/rod and check to see if you've "captured" the drain plug on the stem. If so, tighten the nut and check for leaks.

That should get you back in action quickly.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kitchenaid dishwasher wont drain


1
Allow the current cycle to complete. Draining will occur at the end of the cycle.
2
Close and latch the door. The dishwasher will not drain if the door is not properly secured.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button on the dishwasher to start a two-minute drain cycle.
4
Remove the knockout plug in the disposer outlet of the garbage disposal if the dishwasher drains into the disposal. Turn off the water supply and remove the drain hose from the disposal. Place the tip of a screwdriver on the plug and tap it lightly with a hammer to remove it. Replace the drain hose and turn the water supply on.
Clogged Drain
5
Run the garbage disposal to empty it and clear the drain if the dishwasher drains into the disposal.
6
Remove the cover on the air gap on the sink or countertop. Turn the plastic cap counterclockwise to remove it. Remove soil from the inside of the air gap. Replace the plastic cap and cover.
7
Check the sink. Dishwashers connected to a sink will not drain if the sink drain is clogged. Unclog the sink. Contact a plumber, if needed.
Issues With the Drain Hose
8
Check to see if there is a loop in the drain hose. The loop cannot be more than 20 inches above the floor. Disconnect the hose and loop it just above the floor. Reconnect the drain hose.
9
Remove kinks in the drain hose. Always use the new drain hose included with the dishwasher. Do not reuse old hoses.
10
Check the length of the drain hose. The hose should be less than 12 feet long. Replace with a shorter hose, if needed.

I have an American Standard bathroom faucet. The sink is plugged and I would like to remove the drain plug, how do I do this?


Assuming the drain plug is the pop-up type where you pull a small rod up behind the faucet, you can try the following:
In the cabinet below the sink you will see the rod come down that operates the sink drain plug. There is a horizontal rod connected to this that goes into the drain line with a small round cap. Unscrew this cap and pull the rod out. The drain plug should come up freely from the drain. After cleaning reinsert the drain plug and be sure the horizontal rod goes into the drain and through the hole at the bottom of the drain plug shaft. Seat the round ball from the horizontal shaft into the drain line and tighten the round cap to hold the horizontal rod in the drain.

Dishwasher does not drain and I have cycled it a couple of times to make sure. No line plugged and I've cleaned the filter.


After determining the pump was working in the unit I checked for a posible drain problem. I disconected the unit's drain hose from the drain vent in the sink and stuck it in a pan and then ran the unit again. It drained just fine. I then removed the drain vent at the sink and found it to be plugged. I cleaned it and all is working again.

Look underneath the sink and you will find the lever that moves the drain up and down. It is probably stuck.

Blockage Maintenance


# Regularly remove any hairs that get trapped in the waste plug hole. # Keep small objects such as combs, medicine bottles and toilet rolls away from places where they could accidentally fall into the toilet. # Regularly flush the wash basin and bath or shower pipe work with hot water and a disinfectant to clear soap residue and prevent build up over time. # Don’t flush away large and disposable items such as sanitary towels, nappies or product wrapping as they can become caught in the drainage pipe. # Do not dispose of waste food scraps and cuttings down the kitchen sink. These are much better composted. If any items do fall into the sink pull the vegetable material out of the plug hole, do not try to poke through as you could impact the blockage making it harder to remove. # Never dispose of cooking fats down the drain system. As they hit cold water they will solidify. If there is absolutely no alternative you should dilute and emulsify the fats by mixing them with hot water and of detergent. Keep the water running for a minute after you have done this to keep a clear water flow. # For complete peace of mind, particularly if you are running a business you can request a regular drain surveys and get your drainage system checked regularly by a CCTV drain inspection service. This will give early warning of any potential blockages and also enables you to keep an eye on the structural condition of the drainage pipe work.

No draining


Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently installed a garbage disposal, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposal instructions). 1) Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink) and, using a wire, clean it. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks and blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line. 2) Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and--if your dishwasher is made to allow this-- remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet (see illustration). Unscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it. 3) Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged. 4) If it still doesn't drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. At this point, it's usually best to call a repairperson. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose.
