The fill valve is probably stuck in the full position. It's at the bottom of the tub and looks like a small tube with a cap on it. You should be able to move the cap up and down easily.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

SOURCE: Brand new dishwasher will not drain at end of cycle.

Check your manual. Some dishwashers actually do leave water in them after the final drain cycle. It has to do with the type of seals they use. Some will leak the very first time they are used but not after that. The seals in these types must remain wet. If this isn''t the issue, wait about 5 minutes fir the timer to finish. Sometimes there is quite a lag at the last cycle. If all else fails, call the customer service number in the manual.

Bosch 4000 dishwasher does not drain completely


I am not sure what "completely" means because none of them drain the sump area completely. If you mean water is visible above the filter, then cleaning the filter or checking for drain obstruction is in order.

My Kenmore dishwasher does not drain out, What could be the problem?


No drainage, or poor drainage issues are usually caused by either a failed drain pump, or the sump area under the sprayer is clogged with debris. The sump is the area at the bottom of the tub where water collects on the initial fill. A wash pump cycles the water throughout the wash cycle, followed by the same water being drained from the unit by means of a drain pump. This area is usually covered by a coarse screen and fine screen to prevent debris from accumulating. But, over time, some debris may still get past the screens and collect in the sump. This usually results in poor cleaning results due to restricted water flow through the spray arms, and poor draining.

I would recommend you remove the lower spray arm and screens and check the sump area for obstructions. If the unit still has standing water inside, use a wet/dry shop vac to drain. Remove the drain line from your sink and pull a vacuum on the end of the dishwasher drain hose. If the water drains freely from the unit, then you probably have a bad drain pump. If the water will not drain, you have a clog somewhere. Check your drain lines and pump for obstructions.

If you have any questions, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER. I hope this helps you.

Water in bottom of bosch dishwasher will not drain. How do I get this water to drain


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. To access the drain pump, please follow the procedure---
1. Drain pumps are mounted to sumps in the front of dishwashers --they're easily accessible from the front of dishwashers by removing toe kicks.
2. Tools needed: small flat blade screwdriver (for unlocking terminals).
3. Remove toe kick/base cover, pull up terminal cover and disconnect wires (using screwdriver to unlock locking terminals).
4. To remove pump, pull latch (on circular collar) & rotate pump clockwise (cw).
5. To install new pump, insert @ 2:00 position & rotate counterclockwise (ccw).
6. Clean water & debris from base, then check float operation.
7. Connect wires, then install base cover & toe kick.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Turn on dishwasher, goes to clean cycle right away.


My Bosch SHE4AM16UC was having the same problem of it going from active straight to clean, and there was water in the bottom making me think that there was either a clog or a pump issue. I took my shop vac sucked all the water out of the dishwasher including the down into the drain area for about 3 min until u think all the water is gone in the entire unit. Then I also took off the drain hose that was connected to either your sink or your disposal and held the shop vac over that area for about 5 min to get all the water and hopefully any clog that may be obstructing the drainage. Put the hose back on and hit start and it worked. So for me it was just a clog either deep in the hose or inside the unit. I hope this helps someone. TonyaB

When the dishwasher finishes runing complete cycle there is water in the bottom that will not drain out


if the amt of water exceeds 2-3 cups,you may have a drain restriction,usually plumbing related. if the water left over is no more than a cup or so this is normal to keep motor sump area saturized to prevent dry rotting of seals

Error code OE; dishwasher stops with error message 2 min into cycle, drainage seems OK, water doesn't appear to pump into machine - any advice?


Hi,
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD
Good Luck!!!

Yes, Asko dishwashers can leave a small amount of water in the sump after a cycle completes. At the beginning of most cycles the sump is pumped and new water added.
