Water pooling at bottom, bad smell, and now doesnt appear to work

I get a pool of water at bottom of dishwasher. Water never dries and is above the mesh filter. I have already cleaned the mesh filter. The washer appears to not be filling up with water as detergent is dried up in block. is there anything i can check before having a repairman come out?

My guess is the diverter solenoid which either pumps water to the arms or drains the unit.  It is attached to the waste line on the bottom of the tup.  It can often be disassembled and cleaned.  If not, it must be replaced.

Plugged with a pool of water on the bottom.


You can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.
then you need to check the drain pump for any thing that may be blocking or stopping the flow of water if you do not find anything there then you may need to replace the drain pump

Water remains at the bottom of the dishwasher


some dishwashers have water left after the final rinse. it is important to keep the motor seals wet between loads. My filter is always immersed. If we go away for two weeks, I put 2 litres of water into the tub and let it soak 24 hr so that I never start it with dry seals.

My ge dishwasher will drain but after a few hours


Could be a crack in the tub, bad seal at the pump if water is leaking out onto the floor. If water is pooling inside the DW then a bad water control valve allowing water to leak back into the tub from the source.

The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working


My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely
