The wash goes all the way thru and into the dry section, the when it is finished, I open the door and there is water in the bottom of the tub that has not drained out. No matter what mode it is put into it won't drain.
Even if I run it empty.My husband tried to suction out anything that would be stuck inside the pump area, with a vauum, took all the hoses off and cleaned them out. Nothing, still doing the same thing! Help.

Re: diswasher will not drain
Hi mikeorlana,it sound s like your DW unit is not draining ,opposed too filling up with water when not using?!the most common place for a blockage is under the sink at the air gap,or disposer.but could be any connection under the sink where small items[seeds,bits of plastic,tooth picks etc...]can collect and then block up the drain path.take a look, God bless ,tom

You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.
If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue
with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the
power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the
same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try
pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High
Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi
Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then
you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.
If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the
water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make
sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently.
You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read
between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is
fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more
Should not be any soap at all. If the soap has small shiny bubbles in it you have an oversuds problem which will cause the pump to cavitate during pump out. After setting for while the soap turns into water until the next wash. Easy fix is use 1/2 cup of liquid fabric softener and run thru complete cycle with heat dry off to dissipate all of the soap residue. Hope this helps.
first thing you need to do is purchase a bottle of dishwaser cleaner from your groc store in the diswasher detergent section red the instructions on the label add it to the cutlery tray in an empty dishwasher upside down remove the paper seal off the top of the lid do not remove the wax seal place the bottle upside down in your dishwasher turn on hot water tap and run till it is hot next turn on your washer set it to wasn and let it run a full cycle. when washer finishes open it up when it cools and fill rinse dispenser in door with a good quality rinse agent like jet dry close dispenser and when dishwaser is full of dirty dishes turn it on the jet dry will make your galsses come out crystal clear w no film and the dishwaher cleaner will help all your dishes come cleaner.Use the dishwasher cleaner aroun 4-6 wekks it cleans all the inside of the dishwasher and removes a lot of **** aND RESIDUE THAT ACCUMULATES IN DISHWASHERS OVER TIME
Sounds like you've diagnosed the solution on your own.. Most of the inlet valves are spring loaded so that if power is removed or disabled.. it defaults to a closed state and doesn't allow water int the wash basin. To open, they need to be energized by the control system so you may have one of two issues.. a faulty inlet valve that doesn't spring closed when it is not energized or a controller that is comanding that valve to open ( less likely of the two) For a quick test.. make sure the DW is dry inside and open the door. wait and watch for water to enter the basin.. If it does begin to fill up.. your inlet valve could be the root of your problem.. It is also possible that you are back-siphoning waste water in from the drain system. If the water looks dirty then that is more than likely the problem so you may have a clogged pump, kinked drain hose or your drain system itself is not draining as fast as the DW pump forces the water out.
You should routinely clean the pump filter so that the pump can remove all the wash water without having to draw it thru food debris caught in the filter.. Hope someof these ideas will help you solve your problem..
The portable dishwashers of the 70's and 80's often had one area of problem, and that was the pump getting jammed with debris and food.
To eleminate this problem, you will need to open up your dishwasher carefully, and drain all the water and gunk from your dishwashers rinse hose. I recommend taking the machine outside and use a low setting pressure hose (garden hose). With the hose off the rinse side, run the water through and see if it comes out of the pump's housing. Let it run for a few minutes.
The pump also has a switch that also goes with the run cycle. This switch thinks there is not enough water or it thinks it has done its job.
Sometimes replacing the timer helps, but first eliminate the lower hose situation first. If that doesn't help, you will need to then replace timer. If this doesn't help, most likely your pump is most likely jammed or malfunctioning.
