Question about Dishwashers
HI i have an electrolux dishlex dishwsher that is brand new and just installed. Ive used it a few times an dhave noticed that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher, thats not draining, I think i have to check the spigot trap on the s bend under the sink , but not entirely sure how to do this. Ive got a diagram that ill follow. however any advised would be great. thanks
There is always a little water in all dishwashers. Sounds like to me that you may have a kinked drain hose or maybe the way you have hooked the drain up. The drain hose should go to a vacuum break that is mounted on the sink flange and then another hose goes to the disposal. If you have the hose hooked directly to the disposal you may be getting water back from the sink to the dw. raise the hose up as high as possible and attach under the sink so there is a high loop in your hose so water cannot drain back from the sink

I just posted the same problem with our new electrolux Dw last night, Today I pulled the dw out and sure enough the hose had a kink in it. I am running a test wash right now, I am confident the problem will be solved. I will post again if it doesn't do the trick. Thank you to the pros here for the info by the way!
