If it gravity drains, but the pump does not push out the water.......replace the drain pump. I just repaired an 8-year-old  Frigidaire dishwasher with this very problem, and although it sounded like the pump was operating, it was was just vibrating. I replaced the drain pump and it now works perfectly. I am a service tech with 38 years experience.

Can you hear the pump trying to drain it? If you can then you have a blockage. Try blowing hard down the outlet hose, what happens? Have you checked all filters?

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

if there is still water in the dishwasher take the drain hose off from under the sink and use a large pot or mop bucket and but the unit into a drain mode usually by cancelling the wash cycle if the unit still does not drain.Then use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water
after the water is gone check the drain pump for any kind of obstructions you may need to replace the drain pump

Why water not draining?

sometimes its not the filter. look for the drain hose that connects to the drain pipe (normally under your sink inside your cupboards).
Disconnect the drain hose and look inside where it connects to, most of the tim it blocks up in this area.

Water does not drain after the wash/rinse/and dry cycle

You don't list the make and model of the dishwasher, but generally,when an older dishwasher is not fully draining and the remaining water is not clean, the wash pump motor is failing.

But first check the drain hose from the base of the dishwasher clear to the drain. Make sure the hose is not obstructed. If that hose connects to a disposal, check closely the drain pipe on the disposal.

Good Luck!

Tricity bendix dh101 wont empty trying to but only a trickle was working ok no kinks in extract pipe

Check the drain hose and the drain lines, if you find no obstructions, then you have a defective drain pump.

If you find no problem with the drain lines, you may need to replace the pump.

If you enter model number here , you can find parts and diagrams.

No drainage

You have an obstruction in either your rubber drain hose running from the machine to the drain pipe, or in your actual pipe itself. Make sure the hose has no kinks in it or hard turns to obstruct the flow of drain water when the machine is trying to drain it out. Good luck!
