This is most likely your drain valve, which should be attached to the pump assembly. It has a solenoid that activates it. It is also possible that the drain hose is plugged.

Dishwasher holds water at bottom after wash is done and cycle ends


Some water at the bottom of your dishwasher is ok. However if the water more than covers the bottom then you have a problem.
  1. First thing to try and this may fix the whole issue. Check the air-gap to see if their is a clog in the line.
  2. If your hose is clear change out your drain line and drain pump parts #99002750 and #99002652
That will fix it for sure. Have a great day!

Have a rental property with F&P two draw dishwasher aprox five years old. Apparently bottom draw is holding water - what do you think?


Could be many reasons for the bottom drawer to hold water.

It could be leaky top drawer causing water to collect in the bottom drawer. Check if water collects when top drawer is running.

It could be blockage in the bottom drawer drainage which can be fixed by cleaning the filter plate and the drain sump. If the drain pump is not running during drain cycle then you will have to replace the drain pump motor.

Kenmore dishwasher water will not stay in there


It sounds like you have a drain hose problem. The drain hose needs to have a rise in it. If it is going down hill or to a drain that is lower than the tub it can drain as fast as it fills.

Water left in the bottom of a hobart (kit aid) dishwasher


Drain valve not opening, kinked or blocked drain hose. Remove the hose from the sink plumbing and look for debris. try running the drain hose into a bucket to eliminate a domestice plumbing issue, but hold onto it when it starts draining, or you will have a wet kitchen. Timer contacts may not be opening drain valve.

Will not pump water out of the bottom of dishwasher


UNPLUG THE DISHWASHER. Inside the dishwasher is a covered drain, usually covered with a plastic guard to prevent large objects from getting into the drain. Remove the blades in the bottom (careful but on my GE they come off with a firm pull) Remove the drain cover and see if the drain is plugged. If it does not appear to be plugged, you may have a bad drain pump. This usually requires you to remove the dishwasher but on some you can access it by removing the bottom plate. You then can disconnect it from the dishwasher drain by loosening a band that holds it firmly to the pump housing. Be ready with something to catch the water as it drains out. If the water inside drains out then your pump is bad. Because the water inside drained out, that tells you that the drain to the pump is clear. Your dishwasher has a drain pump that moves the water out. You will need to remove it, check it for obstructions and replace it. If it still does not work, you will need a new pump. There are two water connections to the pump, one for the flow from the dishwasher and another for the flow out. There are two electrical connections that you will have to remove.

Water keeps coming back into dishwasher after cycle is done


Hi, If the drain hose is attached under the sink, make sure that the drain hose is looped higher then the outlet it is attached to.
Most model will hold a small amount of water after draining to keep the seals moist.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Whirlpool dishwasher adp550


f4 is a drain error, machine is still sesing water has not pumped out after 4 minutes of draining
1st check and see if water is still in bottom of machine if so check for blockeges under sink where drain hose cnnects to drain pipe.
if water has drained out you may have an water sensor fault or worst case an electronic control board fault
to reset machine hold the start button in for at least 3 seconds and it should do a drain and stop
