While running a drain cycle. Listen for a hum. If its humming and not draing, it could be a few things. Your motor may not be pushing the water fast enough( bad motor ), Filter in the tub. Take spray arm off, twist lower collar with tab to the left and clean filter. or the drain line maybe clogged. Good Luck.
Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?
The problem could be the pump, the drain hose or the timer. It will not drain if left to sit. The thing to try first is to put a cup of white vinegar in the machine and let it wash. This may remove sludge or scale blocking the strainer. 2nd take the hose loose at the sink drain and see if it is half clogged with grease or food. Check the hose and the nipple. Last, if it does not work take the bottom off the dishwasher. 4 screws and a plate. look for the pump and see if the hoses are clear. Sears will sell you a manual to repair and test this machine at its Parts Central on line
The white film problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system.It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee.You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
It sounds like you have something in the small water pump at the base of the dishwasher that pumps the dirty water through the hose into your sink drain. Remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, unscrew the hose clamp and pull off the hose, then unscrew the pump so u can inspect it. Usually you will find a chunk of glass, or bone or other debris which is blocking the pump partially.
Check your manual. Some dishwashers actually do leave water in them after the final drain cycle. It has to do with the type of seals they use. Some will leak the very first time they are used but not after that. The seals in these types must remain wet. If this isn''t the issue, wait about 5 minutes fir the timer to finish. Sometimes there is quite a lag at the last cycle. If all else fails, call the customer service number in the manual.
the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!
