Question about Dishwashers
We just moved into our apartment and we've noticed that there remains about an inch of water in the interior drain area. The landlord insists that this is normal for this model which "does not fully drain." The handy man did work on it a bit. During the first few days, whenever I put in the liquid soap, water and bubbles would pour out from under the door. So far it does not clog up, but I wonder if this unit is really fixed.
Switch immediately to a Brand Name Dishwasher powder (like Electrosol or Cascade.) Avoid gels, tablets and never use a dish soap that is meant for washing dishes in a sink. This will solve the "bubbles" problem.
Yes, dishwashers do maintain some level of water inside to keep the pump seals/gaskets from drying out or seizing. As long as the water down there is clear and has no odor, you and your apartment's dishwasher is fine.
OK? Post back with any more questions.
