Have you cleaned the drain filter ? If yes, then you may have an obstruction in the pump, the hoses to and from that pump or trhe drain hose exiting the dishwasher. Another consideration is the drain system of your house.. are you certain it is not restricting water flow? These are the basic areas of concern and each one ( if bad) can limit the dishwasher from fully draining. Hope this helps..

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

Kenmore Elite smartwash QuietPak9 F H error code


Press the Pause/Cancel button twice to clear the display then check if water is introduced into the machine. Drain the water from the machine by selecting Drain and Spin then pressing the Start button for one second. Empty the machine after the water is completely drained.

Start a new cycle with Hot/Cold water temperature and check how long before the error code appears after the cycle is started. When the code appears, press the Pause/Cancel button to clear the display then check again if water is introduced into the machine.

The pressure switch is not tripping and must be replaced if the error code appears about 8 minutes after the cycle is started and about 40 liters of water is introduced into the machine.

The flow meter is not working if the error code appears less than a minute after the cycle is started and about 3 liters of water is introduced into the machine.

The valve solenoids may not be working or the levers are stuck if the error code appears less than a minute after the cycle is started and no water is introduced into the machine.

Let us know which case above is observed for specific troubleshooting and repair guide.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

Water slowly filling cabinet when dishwasher is off.


either
leaking valve - to check, turn water off and see if it still happens
or
if appliance is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then when you empty sink, some of the water finds its way into the dishwasher via the drain hose. to cure, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck

Kenmore dishwasher not draining when finished full cleaning cycle


sounds like a cycle timer problem. Look for a loose wire on the cycle timer. If yours is a digital timer, it is a board issue. Sorry.
