It would be helpful to know the manufacturer and model of the dishwasher and approximately how many years old it is. Also, how many inches deep is the water?

But generally, if the water is clear and there is no odor (and it isn't more than (approximately) one inch of water, that is normal.

Dishwashers use that water to keep the rubber parts from drying out and to lubricate/prime the pump at the base of the dishwasher.


Please post back with what you find, OK?

Water sits in bottom


If water does not drain at all then the drain pump could be blocked.
If only a little water is remaining but cycle is complete, then this is normal.
However, do check the kitchen drain is clear and you do not have a garbage disposer (insinkerator) in sink which is full. Normally empty it before you start the dishwasher.
Do you get any alarms (lights flashing etc)

Dishwasher is draining during the wash cycle, but leaves water in the bottom at the end of the wash. What could be the problem?


Hello Ellsaesser,

Dishwashers typically leave water in the drain system exitting the pan but not a lot of water. If yours does then make sure you clean the drain screen ( normally located in or around the drain tube exitting the pan of the dishwasher..) If after cleaning that and after a normal wash cycle you continue to have significant volumes of water in the pan, the pump, lines leading to and from that pump may be restricting flow or damaged.. Those are a few of the normal culprets for why there is a lot of water in the pan of dishwashers after a cycle.. Hope that helps you identify the problem and resolve it,..,
Regards

This is because you have a problem with the diswasher pump and/or pump motor. There should NO water standing at end of cycle.

Ran on normal cycle when done 2 inches of water on bottom


Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.

Whirlpool duet post washer 2006 model will not start any cycle and only hums and pumps odl water out


Sounds like your pump is clogged....first you need to remove the front cover below the loading door... (will be 3 Phillips screws on the very bottom). You will see a white cap in the very center bottom. You are going to need a bowl to catch some water and probably some debris when you remove it....Make sure you get all the debris (coins wrappers...ect... I made about $2.75) out before you put the cap back on the drain...Then try to run a normal cycle again. You can always run the diagnostic program that is found in the manual which is also located behind that front bottom cover if the normal cycle doesn’t go all the way through.....then you got me.....the pump is probably out but you will get more information if you run the diagnostics.....Good Luck.....

LG LDF6810 Drying Cycle?


This is normal and the amount of water can depend on how soon after the cycle has finished as to how much condensation is on the walls.
