Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher goes through cycle and water doesnt drain
If water does not drain at all then the drain pump could be blocked.
If only a little water is remaining but cycle is complete, then this is normal.
However, do check the kitchen drain is clear and you do not have a garbage disposer (insinkerator) in sink which is full. Normally empty it before you start the dishwasher.
Do you get any alarms (lights flashing etc)

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining
I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

Chances are that something is plugging up your little waste water pump. Easy fix. Just open up the bottom panel on the lower front of the machine. You will see the drain hose with a little pump attached at one end and the other end heading out of the space and into your sink space. Just disconnect the hose and then unscrew the little pump. you are looking to remove a piece of glass, or bone or some other obstruction and remove it.

Check the input to the drain hose to make sure it is not blocked by something like a cherry pit. That could cause the water to not drain fully.

Hello. Most likely you have a partial blockage in your dishwasher drain line between the floor of the machine where the drain pump may have debris in it and the trap under the kitchen sink. If you are handy you can remove the lower front panel of the machine, locate the small pump at the end of the drain hose, remove the pump to physically examine it and remove any glass or other debris in there and then check the rest of the drain line right to the trap under the sink.
Be sure to begin by turning off the breaker to the dishwasher to eliminate any shock hazard. J.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
