Kitchenaid dishwasher will not drain completely model kuds25shwh1

I have a dishwasher that seems to work well, but after the wash cycle is complete, I discover a small amount of water inside, above the circular drain filter. This has been happening in the last dozen or cycles, the water is cloudy and does not drain completely. I have tried an additional rinse cycle to see if it clears out, but to no avail, only the water gets clearer. I have checked the drain pipe and appears to be clean at the spot where it dumps into the garbage disposer. Any ideas before I start pulling the whole unit out to look under and beyond?

    If you push the cancel button, the problem seems to go away for a while. This is not a solution, but a quick fix to another anoying Kitchenaid problem. The help I got from KitchenAid was

    - new motor for my hood,

    - dishwasher - reconnect some drain pipe to get the machine going for the 1st time (1st week)

    - stove - change the door and glass (product came with a crooked door and the glass broke trying to refit the door.( 1st week)

    -fridge - changed the magnet lining (1st week)

    The solution - DO NOT SUGGEST TO ANYONE TO BUY AMERICAN. Nobody needs these anoying problems.

There is a plastic cover in the back over the drain under the dish tray,, pull out the tray and in th back of the dish washer there you will look down and see a small strainer that is plastic, you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the cover,, after you remove it there is a couple of pastice peices to take out that are just laying there, remove them and there is a small blade that is there to help cut up food that has been left behind on the dishes,, you can remove this and under it you will find the drain hole,, clean out any debris that is in there, if you have to you might want to take tha bottom cover off the lower front of the dish washer take off the drain hose and flush water thru,, adfter this and then reinstalling everything the way it was, run the dish washer if it still has water sitting in the bottom it is time to get a new pump, it is bad and not pumping,,, you may wish to have an appliance person out to tackle this job,, good luck

Check to see if the drain hose is excessively long. If it is, either trim it as short as possible and install a dishwasher air gap, or arrange the hose in such a way that it goes up as high as possible, and the majority of its length is sloping down towards the disposer. My guess is that the hose fills up, the drain pump cuts off, and the water runs backwards down the hose into the dishwasher. You may also be able to find a one-way check valve that will fit the hose at your local hardware store. Again, install this valve as close as possible to the dishwasher.

Dishwasher hums intermitantly and after the wash cycle is completed


Sounds like you have a bearing going out. It could be in the system pump or the rotating washing arms. I would suggest getting ahold of Kitchenaid's customer support and relay when during which cycle the noise occurs and they should be able to identify whats going wrong.

Dishwasher not draining completely-suds left


Dishwashers shouldn't have suds so somehow dishwasher liquid was introduced to the dishwasher. Vinegar, alcohol, or a small amount of cooking oil might help eliminate the sudsing.

Residue is left behind after cycle is complete. Dishes looks dirt


if dirt is not being washed away it is most likely you have a clogged screen before the waste tube. Depending on the model. Dismantling the dishwasher takes place inside it and under it where the motor is located.

Food particles are on dishes after washing


Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.

Not all of the soap dissolving, some left in dispenser and bottom


Kitchenaid lists 130 dishwashers with this model. Need the rest of the number
KUDSO1DLxxxx
Back in the day, when I worked on K Dishwashers, the drain valve was the problem typically.
It would get a piece of glass, from broken glass or other item, or a toothpick, whatever stuck in the drain valve. It would not completely close. During the wash cycle, water would be trickling down the drain and by the time the soap dispenser opens, the water would be gone or nearly gone.
Check this. When you hear the dispenser snap open, stop the dishwasher and open the door.
If you have little or no water, you are losing the water during the wash cycle.

Let me know.
