The strainer should have trapped all the big particles. Are you sure the drain is clogged? More than likely the evac. pump is shot.

Before you can replace your dishwasher's drain hose, you have to gain access to the hose. First remove the lower kickplate panel located below the door. This panel can be removed by removing a couple of screws that are located either above or below the panel. On some models, the dishwasher door has to be open to access and remove the screws, but then closed in order to remove the panel.
With the panel removed, locate the drain hose. It is connected to the pump located below the lower spray arm. The drain hose runs from the pump to the sink drain, or to the air gap on top of the sink.
Place a shallow pan below the hose to catch any spills. Disconnect the drain hose form the pump by pinching the wire clamp with pliers and then sliding the clamp up the hose. Remove the hose from the pump.
Reconnect on end of a new hose to the dishwasher's pump assembly and the other end of the new hose to the sink drain.
Replace the clamps, and replace the lower panel. Reconnect the dishwasher's power supply and run the dishwasher to make sure it is functioning proplerly.

    try this also

    Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged
    in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain
    line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You
    should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the
    hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the
    dishwasher again.
    Good luck!

Dishwasher doesn't drain properly


Hello,

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is normal. An excessive amount of water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up.

If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. (If you've recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made; see your disposer instructions.)
1) Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink), and, using a stiff wire, clean it out. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks or blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line.2) Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and-if your dishwasher is made to allow this-remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet (see illustration). dishwasher_er1.gifUnscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it.
3) Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged.
4) If the dishwasher still doesn't drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose or replacing it with a new hose.

The dishwasher will not drain all the way it is a DU810SWLQO


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Bosch SHU43CO2UC/22 will not drain


I had the same problem on Christmas Eve. It turned out that the impeller blade was blocked by a grain of uncooked rice which had found its way through the filters in the bottom of the dishwasher.

The impeller pumps the water out of the machine and is separate to the pump which sends water out of the spray arms.

If you have the user manual for the dishwasher, you will find instructions and a diagram of the parts in the troubleshooting section, but it is fairly straightforward.

To get to the impeller, remove the food filter from the bottom of the dishwasher (it simply lifts out) and then you will be able to lift out the metal filter grid and pull it out towards the front.

This will expose the plastic outlet where the impeller is housed. To reach the impeller, undo the cover which is held on with 2 torx screws, and you will be able to see the impeller blades. Try turning the blades, they should move without any resistance. If they are stuck, try using tweezers to find and remove the obstruction so that the blades move freely (there will be some slight resistance from the magnets around the impeller, but the blades should move easily).

That solved my problem, and I was able to spend Christmas Day without washing up by hand! I hope that it works for you.
