Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
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?
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.
