Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU900PCD Built-in Dishwasher
A glass broke (exploded) in the dishwasher and now it won't drain. I took everything out of the interior, including the filter (screen thing) on the bottom and vacuumed ALL the glass pieces out. Where do I go next?
If you take the bottom panel off the DW, there is a white plastic tube that is sticking out, but attached to the motor. Turn the tube counter clockwise ( Please be sure to have wet vac ready as this tube will let water out, even if you think you have all water out, still have wet vac and towels ready) Pieces of things get stuck in that tube and make it hard to drain.. replace tube to motor after cleaning and test unit

Hello Veronica Spellman - Have you recently cleaned the filter? This can be doing by a glass trap located in the center of the filter designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, pits, etc. You should simply be able to grasp handle, lift out, empty and place it back. Also is the unit making a grinding noise? If so, I personally recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately and assist with the repairs. The dishwasher could possibly have a faulty drain motor/pump.

for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues
can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to
kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain
hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump
isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's
drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the
line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air
gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it
is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution
if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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
