Normally it is the impeller which is stuck. Take out the dishes and the filters and empty it for water by hand. Yes it is a dirty job. Then at the bottom there is an opening in the steel where the water is collected. Empty this too. At the bottom left there is a torx20 screw that keeps the cover for the impeller. remove the cover and check that the impeller can move. The may be object stuck You canalso force the safety mechanism in the door with a screwdriver and try to see if the impeller moves when it is supposed to empty water. My problem is that I did all this but it still does not move. It may be the impeller motor which is broken. To replace that one is not easy.

Hi Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Most likely a blocked pump. You should be able to access the pump from the base of the unit under your filters. Remove the cover and rotate the pump impeller to free blockage then start any prog to check if pump is working,if OK reassemble, if not replace pump
for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues
can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to
kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain
hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump
isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's
drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the
line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air
gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it
is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution
if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
I ran into the SAME problem with my Bosch SHX46A06UC /21. The problem ultimately ended up being a clog in the air gap vent, (meaning, SOMEBODY ran the dishwasher without the bottom filter being in place or not in place properly). Remove the air gap cover and upper surface nut to drop the air gap vent into the area under the sink. Disconnect the hoses from the air gap vent filter (placing a bucket under the hose from the dishwasher). Run the drain cycle on the dishwasher. The washer should drain into the bucket and let you know that your pump works and that there are no clogs or kinks in the drain hose. (This will also remove the clog if so). The air gap vent's smaller hose connection is MOST LIKELY where your clog is. Look at the upper end of the air gap vent. You'll see a couple of clips on opposite sides of each other, that hold the air vent cap in place. Using a small screwdriver, (or your hands if you can), depress the clips (or one at a time) to get to the point where you can pull the vent cap off the filter. Either use water or a thin, long blade screwdriver to force any objects out of the filter. You should now have full flow through both branches of the filter. Using water and a rag, clean the vent cap and filter. Mount the air gap vent filter back onto the sink. Reconnect the hoses and remove the dishwasher's internal filter(s) and clean them as well while you're at it, making sure to remove any debris that might remain underneath the filter and has the chance of clogging the unit again.
Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
Check pump impeller for damage. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
I have a Bosch Dishwasher and the E-Nr is SGS4362EU/03. The machine is approximately 4 years old, in good condition and has been working very well. Suddenly, there is water remaining after it completes a 50 degrees C wash cycle. This is also evident with the pre wash cycle and the 65 degrees wash cycle.
I have checked and cleaned the filters. I have loosened the internal pump white cover (Torx T 20 screw) and checked for any physical blockage - none. I have also checked for any drainage hose kinks - none.
I have tried a series of empty washes and the machine drains the water during the wash cycles. The dishes are also have a dull colour and show show signs of not being properly rinsed during the wash cycle.
remove the bottom plate of the dishwasher and the bottom pan is revealed. reason the drain pump is running will be that this pan has water in it ie you have a leak. mop out the water and dishwasher will work - switch off mains when you do this
