Hello tytsai2005
Welcome,


You said,At the end of a wash, some water still remains at the center of the bottom

You have a clogged dishwasher drain, or drain line.
Otherwise your Caloric's pump is pooping out on you!
Is the model # CDC550CL or CDC550CW ?

Here are 4 things that I believe can be the reason for your machine not pumping all the water out!

1. Defective Motor

How can we improve?
The water pump is driven by the drive motor. If the motor is defective, the pump will not operate and the water will remain in the tub.

2. Defective Pump
Most but not all dishwashers incorporate a reversible motor. By using a pump impeller and wash impeller, the action of washing and draining is accomplished by the reversing of the motor. If the drain impeller in the pump is defective, the water will not drain. Check the pump impeller for proper operation.

3.Drain Line
Check the drain line for kinks. If the line checks out visually, it could be an obstruction in the line

4.Garbage Disposal

If a garbage disposal has recently been installed, make sure the knock out for the dishwasher drain hose has been removed. You should also make sure that no items under the sink have been pushed into the drain hose. Any kink or crimp in the hose can cause it to stop draining.



How old is the dishwasher ?
Here is an interesting article I just read, that you may find interesting

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old dishwasher

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.


If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that dishwashers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of dishwashers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

Let me know how you do!

Since mine does the very same thing, it's my guess that is the sterilising cycle as by this point it has already washed, done a short fill to remove any remaining detergent, and two rinses. I'm also assuming the second short fill is just to cover the heating element and/or to to generate an amount of steam having being heated by the element (I'm basing that assumption on the heat of the dishes at the end of end of the cycle and the heat of the water when it drains)

Water is not draining completely from the dishwasher. About 1-2 inches remain in the bottom. Seems to drain most of the water during the wash cycle, but a bit remains. Thoughts on how to fix this?


either the check valve on the end of the drain hose that connects to the drainpump motor is closed shut or sometin is clogged inside the drain hose..... also maybe you pump motor assmbly is faulty... u prob need wet/dryshop vac and drain it out from inside then check that hose... hope this helps... possibly may need to replace that drain hose,,, prob not worth reparing if its a pump motor depending on which brand some had 5 yr part warranties on the pump motor assembly

Dishwasher leaving the remains of dish washing liquid all over dishes nothing is getting clean


Is water also standing in the bottom like it isn't getting pumped out? If so, probably the drain system is plugged and everything below the lower spray arm needs to disassembled to the deck--noting the position of each piece as they are removed. Look for food plugging holes in the deck and any obviously damaged parts. Clean the large screen in vinegar and hot water--let soak for a while to remove water and food deposits. Check the drain hose from end to end looking for kinks or other restrictions. Make sure the pump mechanism at the bottom turns freely. Check both spray arms for plugged spray holes or split seams. Reassemble in reverse order. Run a cycle without dishes to clean further--make sure the water drains out at the end. Listen for proper water movement while running. Open the door to inspect progress several times.

Dish Washer retains the water without draining....


the drain pump is fairly easy to replace. it locks into place beside the sump and motor. push tab in and rotate pump to pull out. you will lose water so have a towel handy. inspect drain hose for restrictions or kinks.
