Re: water will not drain
First, check for blockages.
Check the bottom of the washer for any broken glass, paper, plastic etc that can be blocking the drain.
Then check the hose and where it dumps into the homes main drain system.(Typically found under the sink attached to the garbage disposal or drain off the sink basin)
If the garbage disposal is bad or clogged, it can cause the DW to not drain as well.
If you have no blockages, then you likely have a bad pump.
If that's the case, check to see if the unit is under warranty.
If not, it is not uncommon for the cost of replacing a pump to approach the cost of buying a new washer. Especially if the washer is quite old or a near base model.
The parts alone typically cost 60 to 120 bucks. If you have to pay a tech to perform the labor, expect to pay between 175 to 275.
It is much easier to replace a DW than it is to replace the pump. So if you are unfortunate enough to have a bad pump, my advice would be to buy a new washer, and install it yourself.
I will be happy to help you with that as well.
(It's basically two hoses and three wires.)

Hello, After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone?? If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.
Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher, Gene
It sounds like the drain hose may have a break in it. Use a Phillips screwdriver or a 1/4" nut driver and remove the lower toe panel that sits back and low to the ground in front. With that panel off fill the dishwasher then push cancel and see where the water is coming from. Let me know which hose it is and I can get you a part number if you wish
your problem is most likely the front panel itself. can you see if the water is coming from the front? this is quite a simple machine and there isn't many places the water would come from other then the hoses or the front panel under the door.
I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!
