Standing water in my kenmore dishwasher after complete cycle
The water does not completely drain after the dishwasher cycles, I am unsure of where and how to check to see whether the drain hose is clogged. The drain hose does not seem to go directly to the garbage disposal.

Does it have standing water after cycle? If so you can turn the knob until you hear the water kick into the sink. let it drain this way completely and stop the dishwasher before it starts to add more water. turn the dial or switch to its off location and the let the dishwasher cycle completely to ensure issue is solved. Your dish washer is "short cycling". This usually works 9 of 10 times
Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?

Here is a tip that I wrote that will help you with your dishwasher not draining
Hello, Miele dishwashers are typical not to drain all of the water. It is the way the siphoning system is designed. You will always have a bit of standing water after cycle completion but should not be above the bottom filter. You can manually drain the dishwasher by selecting any cycle and letting it run for 30 seconds and then turn the dishwasher off. Hope this helps
THE PROBLEM SOUNDS TO BE WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE DISHWASHER ITSELF. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR DRAIN HOSE IS NOT KINKED AND ALSO THAT THE DRAIN HOSE FORMS A LOOP. IN OTHER WORDS IT SHOULD GO STRAIGHT UP BEHIND THE UNIT AND THEN DOWN INTO THE SINK OR DISPOSAL.THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEM.
