It worked for me .I have a danby countertop dishwasher.
I took off the metal top
I looked under on the left side to find the pump
I took both hoses off the pump and took off the little fan.
i took off the little metal bracket behing the little fan. and unscrewed the little pump to take it out.
the little metal piece that the fan was on wouldn't even move.So i sprayed it down with wd and it started moveing again then a screw fell out.so i found where it went(inside the motor which the fan and metal piece move) got the tweezers and replced it. oiled it some more and put it all back together. Perfect.

Sometimes the drain can clog with ice. If this is it - simple fix. Empty the freezer and find the drain. Put hot water in the drain with a turkey baster or try using a hair dryer to thaw the ice and let the water drain. A small amount of water drainage through this drain is normal. The water sits in a tray underneath and evaporates helped by heat from the compressor. If the drain plugs, the water will build up in the bottom of the freezer and become an ice block.

A small amount of water in the bottom is normal (it allows the pump to be pre-primed). Do not remove the water (as long as it is only a little in the center well).

My whirlpool dishwasher is not draining completely. It runs through the entire cycle with no problems, except that after it has finished, there is a layer of water on the bottom of the diswasher.


Hi, there will always be some water in the bottom the tub. This is called the sump. When your pump stops draining, all the water that's up in the hose will drain back into the sump. You failed to tell me how much water is there. If a small amount then it's normal, however if it's a large amount that covers 1/2" or so then you indeed have a problem and snaking out the lateral should clear it up.

Your drain line is frozen and not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. The drain hole is at the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer behind the metal rear panel. You may need to remove the panel to access it. You can use hot water to thaw it out and you should be in good shape.

Dishwasher is not getting dishes clean. Plus there is a small amount of water below the drain screen but still in drain pipe. Should all the water be pushed out.

My suggestion is to observe the VOLUME of water exiting the hose, on draining.

Standing water at drain in dishwasher after using.  Is this normal or should the water drain completely.


Most dishwashers leave a small amount of water in the bottom to keep the seals lubricated. If it is only a small amount of water it should be normal.

After a load water still remains in bottom


If it is a very small amount it may be normal. Check to see if the manual says anything about that. If it is a large amount, the drain hose may be partially blocked where it connects to the pump underneath. Something like a cherry pit caught at that connection could cause water to not drain fully.

Water and odor collecting in our empty dishwasher after 4-5 days


A small amount of water may be normal.  Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub.  Sprinkle some baking soda inside between washes.
