Clean out the air gap. Remove decorative cover by pulling up. Remove plastic dome by gripping and moving side to side while pulling it up. When you get the dome off you can see if the air gap is partially blocked.

Why doesn't the water draincompletely after the dishwasher cycles?


It drains as part of a cycle as does the wash and rinse cycles.
Most will drain through a hose into a garbage disposal connection. First I would check the grate inside the bottom of the dishwasher for debris them in the disposal. That issue will slow down the water from draining and timing out the cycle leaving water inside. The water when draining from the dishwasher into the disposal should be seen from above flowing out rather fast if correct. If not? The hose from dishwasher to disposal also might be clogged. This is fairly typical issue for dishwashers, when the dishes are not Cleaned beforehand.

Doesn't drain


If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.
HERE ARE SOME OTHER COMMON CAUSES:
H Drain impeller. The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.
Drain Solenoid Kit. The drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve. The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced.
Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer. If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug needs to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.
Check Valve. The check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.
Check Ball. The check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Bosch dishwasher does not drain


Here are some steps you can take when your dishwasher does not drain:

First, check the dishwasher filter and make sure it isn't clogged.Your owner's manual will have simple instructions on how to access and clean your dishwasher's filter.

Next, check the drain hose. Does it look flattened or kinked? Do you see any sharp bends? If so, straighten out the hose with your hands and manipulate it so that it regains its rounded shape.

If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal, try running the garbage disposal for a bit to process and clear any food. If that does not get the machine draining, you may have a deeper clog. However, most drain hoses clog either at the main household sink drain line connection or the garbage disposal connection.

Does your dishwasher spray your dishes, but it does not advance to the next stage and drain the dirty water? The timer controls the start of the draining process, so you may need an entirely new timer or a new motor for the timer. Repair service is recommended.

In some dishwashers, standing water is caused by a valve that fails to open and allow the water to drain out. This valve is controlled a solenoid that the timer controls. A malfunctioning solenoid could be the problem.

For more troubleshooting tips, see Diswasher not draining. I hope this helps!

After a wash there is water on the bottom of the unit


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
Water in the bottom of the unit is a sign of drain problems that are usually external to the dishwasher. You probably have noticed cloudy or spotted dishes post cycle lately also. Since I suspect a drain problem here is what you should do:
  • Start at the sink connection and remove the hose. Then clean out the port at the sink or garbage disposal connection. Reconnect the hose. (Clogged garbage disposal ports are the 2nd highest reason for dishwasher drainage problems.)
  • Next if you have an Air-Gap installed pull off the upper/outer cover and NOTE the position of the internal cap and nut. The cap with the inner inverted U will only install correctly in one position. Remove the nut and lift off the inner inverted U cap. (This is were most clogs are found.) Clean out any debris found. Use a flash light and inspect the lower outlet hose port for obstructions. Remove the lower outlet hose to the sink / garbage disposal connection if necessary to clean the outlet port.
  • Lastly... If after doing the above and you still have water in the dishwasher post drain cycle then TURN OFF POWER to the dishwasher and remove the lower kick panel. Then remove the drain hose from the pump and inspect the port for obstructions. Clean as necessary. Re-install the removed hoses. (Check all) Install the lower kick panel.
TURN ON POWER and test the drain cycle after filling with water. This should make it work properly again unless there is a problem with the pump impeller blades or something inside the sump housing blocking the drain port. If you have done all of the above and you still have the same water in the sump post drain cycle problem... Just respond here and I will explain what to do next.

NOTE: If you respond for any reason PLEASE include your model number so I can include any available diagrams to help you in my next response.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Disherwasher wont drain out water.


Will the dish washer spray water during the wash cycle? If no it could be the pump motor. The motor will run in the opposite direction to drain the washer. If it spays water it could be a clog in the drain hose or the connection to the drain (on newer units) or garbage disposal (on older units). Remove the hose from the drain and place it into a large bucket to see if it drains during unit operation (stop the washer if the bucket fills). if it does clean the connection to the drain or the garbage disposal hole. If not make sure the hose is free from obstructions. If the above checks out then check for voltage on the pump connection with a volt meter. You may be able to visually inspect the pump or listen for the vibration of the pump during the draining operation. If you have voltage the pump is defective or the internal garbage disposal (found on newer units only) is clogged or damaged.

Oe code on LG dishwasher following garbage disposal replacement


Hi. I just had the same trouble. Your garbage disposal comment there gave me an idea. The drain hose from your dishwasher likely goes to the garbage disposal and then out the drain. My hose had a little blockage at the joint where the hose goes into the disposal. I was able to clear it just by giving it a wiggle....all is well now.

Good luck.

Garbage Disposal backing up in dishwasher


Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck
