Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
There are two inches of water left in the bottom of my dishwasher every time I run it. The filers are clean and I can hear the pump running. Only a trickle of water is moving through the hose to the garbage disposal.

Some Kenmore DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage. Remove toe panel, look for a long, white, plastic fitting attached the front, right side of the sump. Remove the drain hose from the valve. Unscrew the valve from the sump and inspect for debris inside the valve.

From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.

Fixerfailure, is the knock-out plug still inside if the garbage disposal inlet?
Stick a screwdriver in there to make sure.
spazmo1969, could be the rubber flapper is broken off in the pump discharge outlet.

check for a clogged discharge hose where it connects to the plumbing under the sink...this is the most common area for a clog. if no restriction is found, the discharge valve will need to be tested
