Re: my dish washer does not drian completly

The water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.

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?

No reaction when start button is pushed on Kenmore UltraWash model 665 dishwasher. The clear /drain button works. No water filling

you have a bad water valve or bad user interface that's the long control in the front of the dish washer.

Water not completely drianed after running, is this normal?

Hello. There should be no water left in the bottom at the end of the wash cycle. There are a few possible causes, the most common one being debris in the small pump that pumps the water out of the machine and into your sink drain, or debris in the hose vrom the dish washer to the sink, or a blockage where the dishwasher empties into your food disposal [if you have one installed].
