Re: dishwasher

Check whether the drain line was assembled exactly as per Kenmore's instructions. Good luck!

My whirlpool dishwasher is not draining completely. It runs through the entire cycle with no problems, except that after it has finished, there is a layer of water on the bottom of the diswasher.

Hi, there will always be some water in the bottom the tub. This is called the sump. When your pump stops draining, all the water that's up in the hose will drain back into the sump. You failed to tell me how much water is there. If a small amount then it's normal, however if it's a large amount that covers 1/2" or so then you indeed have a problem and snaking out the lateral should clear it up.

Is there a drain or screen to remove and clean, have small amount of water in botton of dishwasher, always there

A small amount of water is normal and is needed to keep the rubber gaskets from drying and leaking. If it still cleans good don't worry about it.

I would like to know if you have water left behind in the area of the drain is that normal? Should this be completely drained away?

No, it's totally normal, The pump can't totally empty the washer and the hose because once it starts pumping air and water the air gives least resistance so the water remains in the hose. When the pump switches off gravity pulls a small amount of water back into the drain.

Your washer is 100% fine.

My Kenmore elite dishwasher 665.13793K600 has 2 problems: 1. won't drain water 2. won't even start working today Please help!

I have a Kenmore model # 665.13793K600 and it has been having a small puddle of water remaining in the bottom at the end of each cycle. I've taken it apart and cleaned it. I'm thinking I may have the drain hose incorrectly positioned or it could even be something unrelated. I can only think of the drain because I replaced the kitchen faucets a coupe of months ago and it could be since then that this has been happening.

We have water in the bottom of the diswasher we havegfot down to a part that we cant get off, i think there is food trapped and that is what is stopping it from draining any suggestions

DWs always have a residual amount of wtare left in them after every wash cycle as a means to prevent the heater buring out when it is switched on. With the power and water supply turned off you can either ladle out the water with a small cup or siphon it out with a piece of hose or plastic tube.

Our GE Dishwasher model GLD4500N00BB will only drain a small amount of water out of the dishwasher. there is water left standing after a wash. what is going on?

Look for restricted drain system. Screens and ports get plugged, also verify the drain hose is NOT kinked at all. Hot water draining relaxes hose and can cause restriction.

Standing water at drain in dishwasher after using.  Is this normal or should the water drain completely.

Most dishwashers leave a small amount of water in the bottom to keep the seals lubricated. If it is only a small amount of water it should be normal.

On another website, we found a reset code that works for our Kenmore, which I think is the same as yours. Hit Heated Dry, Normal Wash, Heated Dry, Normal Wash (one at a time, within six seconds).
