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.

SOURCE: dishwasher will not drain the water

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.

SOURCE: Water will not drain out of bottom of

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.

SOURCE: there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher

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.

Check float valve


pull out your bottom rack, in one of the bottom corners of your dishwasher there will be a circular plastic piece. it is probably stuck in the up position . Wiggle it around, it should sit loosely in place. It's a float, so when water fills in your washer, the float should raise up, when the water is draining, the float should lower with the water. That's why the float should be sitting loose in position.

Frigidaire FDP635RFR3 wont drain.


Theres a drain pump located at the bottom of the unit if you follow the hose from the pump then to the drain if your unit isnt draining you might have to call for service from a technician to have them change your drain pump. If the water is just sitting inside the unit and when u start the unit it should fill with water again.Also if you have a cancel function by pressing this you will make the unit drain if you dont hear anything when u press the cancel button you definetly need a pump

Dishwasher did not drain all the water - water sitting in bottom of dishwasher


start and cancel cycle to drain the water out and check the position of your drain hose.....water is probably backwashing into the d/w, hose should leave the drain and go up to the height of the d/w

Dishwasher doesnt drain on wash cycle,ok on rinse cycle


Change the circuit board, timer/progrsmer.
Take it out and clean contacts,
Look for burnt circuit line and solder a fine bead carefully on the circuit board, difficult. Use the pot and pan program.

The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working


My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely
