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.
Hello. This condition is usually cause by a build up of organic matter or there is no drain trap on the waste line that the water discharge hose connects to.
First check for slime and gunk in the big rubber gasket on the front of the washer. If there is some it's an indicator that you have a build up of active bacteria. This is real common in warm damp areas. The best thing to do in prop the door open on the washer and let it dry out for a day or so. If the smell goes away then it's just bacteria. Run a full load of hot water without any clothes in it. Put the washer on the largest load with extra water, if you have that setting, and the hottest water setting, hot wash and rinse.
When it is finished open the door and let it dry overnight. You may have to do this once a month or so. also when you are finished washing leave the door to the washer open to keep it dry. Good luck.
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..
michele99, So when you put it on drain, do you here the machine trying to drain the water? After it finishes draining, (you have to wait a few minutes, it should then have a blinking light
on the Finished/Door locked light.
Are you waiting for it to finish?
Your door will not open if there is water still in the machine. Try "spin only". If this fails, get a bucket, remove your outlet tube from the wall drain, put into bucket. Wall plug off first. After all the water is drained try the door, do not force it.
Then check your outlet filter; the water does not go thru for there may be a block in your filter, or tube from the tub to drain area. Or finally in your pump. Dont forget to refix drain pipe in wall in exact position.
