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.

Dishwasher won't drain completely. Several inches of standing water left after last cycle


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?

First was a new garbage disposal also installed? There is a knockout on the garbage disposal where the drain hose connects to.
If that is not the problem make sure it has the correct high loop or also called air gap. If that is not right water can siphon back into the dishwasher. Both are common mistakes usually made by begginers. Here is a link for the correct High loop installation

DIshwasher doesn't drain. 3-4 inches of water sits in the bottom


A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

i would check to see if you are using the factory drain hose or if you have extended the hose to reach the sink drain.
the only other thing that might cause this would be a restriction in the hose at the drain pump outlet, but check the drain hose first.

Doesn't drain; glasses have film; rinses with used, soapy water


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.

Leaky Dishwasher


The dishwasher was installed with a defective fill valve or the valve was damaged during installation of the dishwasher.

Brand new dishwasher will not drain at end of cycle.


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.

have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished
