This is more of a tip than a solution as I am having a partial-draining problem and have discovered by accident how to have the Quiet Series 300 "drain only" (which is not an option on the control board and the manual doesn't seem to address this).
TIP 1: The "drain-only" function can be activated by selecting "Rinse Only", pushing the "Start" button, and then pushing the "Start" button again (which cancels the start). This activates the drain pump which will drain any remaining water.
I think I might have a partial clog below which I have been able to access so far as I removed the top drain cover (3 --I think the term is star screws) and used a screw driver to take debris out from between the drain blades. This improved things but didn't solve the problem. As of now, I just completely drain the machine by cancelling the "Rinse only" as described in TIP 1 above.
TIP 2: If you don't have a star or hex screwdriver, you can pick up one very cheaply at a discount store (e.g., Odd Lots, Marcs, or even some Dollar Stores). Check out their tool section. I've bought a bunch of stuff, sure it is not the highest qualilty, but how often do you use most of your tools? I bought the star-screwdriver set for about $1-2 and will probably use it 10-20 times in my lifetime. I bought it to change a bulb in out minivan and have now used it again. In my cynical opinion, more and more companies are NOT using straight or phillips-head screws as a way to force many to use their repair services. I'm not a professional, just a guy who's using the internet to feel his way around in the dark.

Sounds like you have a bad Control Board
But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews

SOURCE: Is there a reset button
Go to the electrical panel of the house or apartment and turn off the power to the dishwasher for two full minutes, then turn the power back on. This will reset it. J.
