Dishwasher doesnt drain

After the cycle is complete water is left at the bottom of the dishwasher, I have to drain it twice before everything is cleared up

    I should have added more information. It is a new dishwasher.



    The dishwasher is connected to a separate drainage system (i.e. not through the kitchen sink). The plumber says that the drainage line is fine and the dishwasher technicians says that the dishwasher is operating correctly (he showed me that the dishwasher draining completely when not connected to the drainage). The builder has recommended we reroute the dishwasher drainage through the kitchen sink but that will leave a air hole on the side of the sink.



    Is it possible that the height of the drainage is more than what the pump can handle?

    yes it is possible but just buy a plug and my opinion.a hose clamp to block the hole or buy a new drain assembly but I still think it's the pump.

Water sits in bottom


If water does not drain at all then the drain pump could be blocked.
If only a little water is remaining but cycle is complete, then this is normal.
However, do check the kitchen drain is clear and you do not have a garbage disposer (insinkerator) in sink which is full. Normally empty it before you start the dishwasher.
Do you get any alarms (lights flashing etc)

Water is left in the bottom of the dishwasher after completing a cycle


When you find water left in the bottom of the dishwasher... most of the times there is an "Intake/Drain" flashing, or some other type of fault indication. The dishwasher has faulted out, in the middle of a selected program. The dishwasher won't even bother to drain the water out. If it's not a drain fault, then you can drain the water out by: switching the dishwasher off and on again; selecting a program; and closing the door. Open the door after 15 seconds and see if the water has drained out. If it didn't drain, there is a drain problem. If it did drain, then it can be several things. To better determine the problem, you will have to pay close attention to when the dishwasher faults out.

Water left in the bottom of dishwasher after cycle was complete


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.
