At the end of a wash cycle, when the door is opened, the spray arm continues to spray some water inside. Also, this sometimes coincides with water continuously draining out of the dishwasher which I...


at the end of the rinse cycle, it is normal to have some residual water spray from the jets. it is residual water pressure. If it sprays for more than a couple of seconds then it could be and obstruction in the fill valve or high water pressure. required pressure is 30 psi. Any water above the stand pipe will be drained out.
One last recommendation, this type of dishwasher needs to be fully drained (stand pipe removed) at least once a day.

good luck

For Miele Dishwasher G2470SCVI Need help with remaining water in the bottom. Model# G2470 SCV1 SF Type-HG03. Runs through the entire cycle,long,short ect..everything is clean and dishes look great but


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Drain Hose If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher
Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

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?

MY GE DISHWASHER IS CONNECTED AND RUNNING, UNIT HA...


hi just try this Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Was the selected cycle interrupted before completing?
The Clean light will come on when the cycle is complete. Wait until the Clean light comes on before trying to manually drain dishwasher. Press Cancel/Drain to try and drain the standing water.
Is the water level just covering the pump module?
This is normal. A small amount of water will be seen in the bottom of the sump area at the base of the pump. This is to ensure that the pump seal does not dry out.
Is the dishwasher drain hose connected to a garbage disposal?
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" (50.8 cm) above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped up so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.
Is the drain hose too long?
If the supplied drain hose was replaced with a longer one it must be shorter than 12' (3.7m).

My Dishwasher works but still leaves some standing water.


Check the filter unit located at the bottom (inside) rear for clogging. Sometimes food will accumulate in the filter and not allow the unit to completely drain.
