Question about Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD040 Stainless Steel (Premium) Built-in Dishwasher
Check the easy stuff first. My solution was to clear the Anti-Siphon valve that is easily accessible on the top of the sink. After I verified my filters were clean and the pump was working I found the clogged anti-siphon valve. Cleared that and my dishwasher worked just fine. Lift the decorative cover off and mine had two small tabs to remove a cap. I found peanuts and a match head inside. Who knows how they got there. To be sure I had everything I removed the hoses under the sink and then removed the whole valve and carefully cleaned it. I'm not sure that was necessary though. Hope this helps

You either have a faulty drain pump motor..Or there is some blockage at the pump to drain hose area....Remove the front bottom kick plate....Set the washer to drain...See if you can hear the pump humming ..If so you will need to remove the hose from the drain pump...Be careful o the amount of water that will come out...Best thing to do is use a shop vac to empty the inside drum...Then use again underneath once you carefully remove the hose. Pump is easily accessed once you take off the bottom panels, so do that and investigate as needed to see what is really wrong. There is no secret to taking off the bottom panels-all screws are clearly visible.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
