Question about Dishwashers
Dishwaser not draining dishwasher won't drain
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
It would appear that you posted twice.
Initially, might just need a drain system cleaning. This would include the filter, the impeller/pump and drain hose. Most dishwashers have a removable kickpanel specifically for this purpose. However, it is abit of a messy job.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually 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.
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.
