Sounds like the pump is running but clogged. You might want to 1-remove as much water as possible by cupping it out manually,2- turn the breaker off and ensure no power, 3- take off bottom cover, 4-locate drain line (it will go into cabinet under kitchen sink-hooked up to sink line more than likely) and take off pump on dishwasher end and take off sink. you can remove the hose and see if and where clog is located.Grease is sometimes a culprit or other bits and pieces of food build up. You should also investigate the area where the drain line hooks into the unit and ensure that is clear. reconnect hose under sink and fish thru hole in side of cabinet to back of dishwasher. someone else or you can then reach under dishwasher to reconnect line to dishwasher. make sure drain is hose is connected properly at both ends! You'll probably need a phillips head screwdriver, 1/4" nutdriver and a pair of pliers

SOURCE: How do I clean the water jets in the dish washer?

If you have the patience and time, you can use a toothpick to unclog all those little holes.

Most likely the clogging is a result of a combination of slightly hard water and food particles, etc.

I've found that you can use some readily available dishwasher cleaning solutions to help clean it out. You run an empty machine through a complete cycle with the solution (available at most big box and appliance stores, etc.) and it will help disolve the gunk in the sprayer arms, as well as help remove any stains on the top, sides, and bottom of the tub.

I've also used white vinegar added to the wash cycle, once the DW is full of water (I add in 2 cups of white vinegar to the wash water) without any dishwashing detergent, and is seems to helps disolve any deposits in places I can't get to by hand

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

First make sure all the filters on all faucets (kitchen, bathrooms and even the dish washer and washer) are clean and not clogged, sometimes on areas with hard water you will experience sand and minerals to accumulate and clogged all filters. If all filter are clean with no minerals, then your problem could be the culligan filter, ask your sales rep to perform an inspection for minerals on all ending lines.

Hope this clear up your water lines. It happened to me.

DISH WASHER WON'T DRAIN BOSCH SHE45M


Hi:
This maybe due to a clogged drain hose, sometimes food will clog the drain valve causing the unit not to drain the water. Check the drain plug for clogged debris in it.

Water doesn't come through during rinse cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the water inlet valve and main water line for any clogs or obstructions. If clogs or obstructions are there remove them. If still the issue is not resolved then it’s a bad float switch. Replace whichever has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

The dishwasher is not cleaning properly, glasses look like they have a film on them, plates also do not look clean & the dishwasher has a foul smell.. like rotting food in it.. we use the top quality...


Check the main drain system connected to the dish washer hose pipe. Clean the junction if clogged. This smell might orginate from the pipe.

Check incoming water quality. If hard water is noticed, use softener attachments to the inlet.

Fill dish washer salt in the dispenser. Refer user guide. The salt will help softening the water to certain extent. Finally check whether rinse aid dispenser filled with the rinse aid liquid.

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.
