Water not draning
When a unit has an issue draining one of the first things to check on the unit would be to listen if you can hear the sound of the Drain pump activating. If the Drain pump were makeing sound and running then first your would go under the sink area and disconnect the drain line that goes to either the garbage disposal or sink. After disconnecting the drain line you would look inside where the drain line connects to to assure there is no blockage in the port hole area that the water flows. If you do not see a blockage here then you would have no choice but to pull the unit out from under your counter and check the oppisite end of the drain line as well as the drain pump itself. Also there is a float switch located near the water inlet valve that when activated signals the pump to start pumping out the water. It is also sugggested to remove the drain pump if you do not hear it running an take an old extension cord and cut off the female end. After you remove the female end of the extension you would then add two cclip electrical connectors to the extension cord this would make a powered jumper wire. You can then plug one side into the pump and the other side into a outlet which would activate the pump and allows you to visually assure that the impellar is spining.
