Heool Isharpbailbo,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sounds like it may be one of a few problems,
1.The drain may be clogged going out to your kitchen sink
2.There may be some food or debris at the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher blocking the drain screen. BE CAREFUL RUNNING YOUR FINGERS DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF TH WATER!
There may be broken glass in there that you can not see through the water , holding back food causing the blockage!
I cut my finger once clearing this to quickly.
3- you may have a bad pump that may need to be replaced.
USUALLY its a blockage some where from the dishwasher to the drain.
I once saw a large piece of broken glass in the drain holding the food particles back.
That's the on that got me so move your fingers real slowly in there , if you must use your hands.
I recommend hands on service if it's a fairly new machine!

How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN O

First was a new garbage disposal also installed? There is a knockout on the garbage disposal where the drain hose connects to.
If that is not the problem make sure it has the correct high loop or also called air gap. If that is not right water can siphon back into the dishwasher. Both are common mistakes usually made by begginers. Here is a link for the correct High loop installation

After the wash, the water still remain in the basket.


IF you still have water standing in your dishwasher after it's done running you most likely have a damaged pump. This is quite common and is usually caused by a piece of a broken dish/glass or a small utensil getting down into the pump and breaking the fins on the empeller. This is a fairly envolved repair that requires taking apart the pump in order to repair it.

Remove the drain end. Keep it above little . Check whether the water is retained inside the washing machine. If water is retained- check your drain valve in the machine. it is parmenantly open or having improper closure.

Hi there

I have had this problem before. If your dishwasher is not level water collects at the front. Try tilting your machine forwards. Be carefull though as water will come out of the bottom. Once you have done this and reset your machine it should be ok.
