Whirlpool Quiet Wash Dishwasher will not drain water
Upon completing the cycle, there is remaining water in the basin of the dishwasher. I have removed the star shaped screws holding down the spin arm but that's as far as I have gotten. We purchased the home with this model and of course, NO MANUAL... Any ideas will be helpful and appreciated. Even where to find a PDF manual on it. Model Number DU920PFGG0

Re: Whirlpool Quiet Wash Dishwasher will not drain water
You can get the manual from the Whirlpool website. Go to the Customer Support, Owner Information, Manuals link and enter your model number. Your exact model is not listed, but any of those listed will be close enough.
Check that the drain line is not kinked in any way, leading to the disposal, and make sure the line is routed up to the top of the cabinet, just underneath the counter top. Otherwise water can flow back into the dishwasher from the sink.
Make sure all filter screens are clean.

ensure your dishwasher pump and drain hose are unobstructed. If your machine does not drain it will not refill with fresh rinse water and since it can't do that the cycle will never finish.
Many people don't completely rinse off food stuffs from their dishware, expecting the dishwasher to take care of it. To be honest, a dishwasher is more of a fine cleaning and disinfecting device than a pot scrubber. Because of this, grease, food debris, etc can clog the pump or drain line over time. be sure to use a good de-greasing agent regularly once the flow of water has been cleared (don't wash your dishes with it however)
"F2 - A water leak, which if detected will stop water from entering the dishwasher via the inlet valve. You will probably experience the dishwasher not filling properly during a cycle. Possibly caused by a faulty water level indicator, you can also try cleaning the filters and drain if you notice a lot of standing water remaining in the dishwasher basin."
"Look in the bottom of the unit. Something has it stuck, like food."
sorry if this doens't solve your problem. This is what turned up with your keywords in a quick search engine query.
I had the same problem with my dishwasher. After hearing that the motherboard was the problem I decided to take a closer look. There were two capacitors (1000 microfarads, 6.3 volts) that looked a little suspect. The tops of capacitors should be flat...these looked like soda cans that had been left in the freezer. Got on eBay, located the capacitors for roughly $3 and $4 shipping, for approx total of $10. Soldered the two new capacitors into the motherboard and put it back together. As soon as I closed the door, the dishwasher started draining the water. When I ran a Normal cycle it completed successfully. Saved myself over $120!
Before loading into the machine you have to remove food particles. Washer will wash the greasy surface. If particles are left in the dishes, the same will find entry to the drain system. Check the drain filter in your machine. Clean them. Mostly problem will be solved!
I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know
Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
