Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

How to remove debris from the drain holes at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, which is preventing the tub from draining all of the water completely?


I had a similar problem when my dishwasher wouldn't drain and was causing the kitchen sink to back up. I poured a little drain cleaner in the bottom of the tub (where the drain holes are) and let it stand for about 15 minutes then ran a hot rinse cycle (don't put any dishes in the dishwasher while you're doing any of this). The water still hadn't all drained but after a day or two of not using the dishwasher it drained on it's own and hasn't had any problems since. I would recommend reading your manual to make sure that using drain cleaner doesn't void any warranty you may have. Also, it's a good idea to do an empty rinse cycle at least once so that there's no chemicals getting on your dishes.

After running a load in our new dishwasher (which we did not install), we noticed standing water. Any ideas????


Most dish washers have standing water. It should just be a little, say depth of your fingernail. The amount of water depends on the height of the drain hose mounted under the counter.
If there is enough to scoop out with a cup measure, perhaps a call to Frigidaire service is in order.

I ran a load of dishes and the soapy water leaked out on the floor. The dishes were done, but there was standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Do I need a repair man?


Someone put dish soap in your machine. Put some ... SOME ... salt in your machine and run it empty - turn off the heaters for this cycle.

If you are CERTAIN THIS IS NOT THE CASE, maybe you should call the repair guy in your area.

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.

Water draining is premature


In my case, I had the same problem until I realized the drain hose was not looped high enough. Once I looped the drain hose higher than the dishwasher, the problem went away and it washes dishes perfectly.

When the drain hose is installed too low, the water in the machine will only stay as high as the hose is installed because of the laws of physics.

The same applies to laundry machines - that is why the drain hose is set to drain from a higher point than the drum of the washer.

Good luck and Blessings!
