Hi Jim,

Yours doesn’t have the piston valve, which is what I believe you are talking about when you say the air gap. Look under the dishwasher and attached to the pump you should see a black solenoid. When the dishwasher goes into drain the solenoid will pull down. If it doesn’t the solenoid is bad.

If the solenoid isn’t the problem then check the drain hose to see if it clogged. Also check where the drain connects to the sink.

Thank you,
