Question about Dishwashers
Check for debris in two areas.
1 the air gap. That is the thingy that makes noise when the DW is working properly. It is usually mounted on the top of the sink. Pull off the pretty cover and unscrew just the top of the plastic lid. Is their rice and debris in there? Take it out. And put the air gap back together again.
2 The basin of your DW. Is the Screening on the bottom of your DW clogged with paper and stuff, anything that stops the flow of dirty dishwater from flowing to the pump? Clean that whole area away (this can be an advanced step but you can do it. I trust you. Some models you must unscrew the bottom spray head to get at the drain area. If you trust you, go ahead and disassemble to try to clear the screen). Does this do the trick and fix the drain?
If you still have problems, try to see if float is stuck. The float is inside your DW basin on the bottom. It looks like a mushroom. Gently pull it up and down. Does it seem to stick? If it does not move freely it will not work, and will not tell your dishwasher, "hey you still have water in here. Get it out."
Does the pump make a running sound? Is the pumped waste (from the bottom of the DW) kinked? Unkink it.
