Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Maytag dishwasher, model MDB5600AWW. The dishwasher is not emptying fully, leaving dirty water in the bottom at the end of a cycle.If I start and immediately cancel a new cycle, triggering a drain cycle, I can hear the pump click on and the water is mostly removed. Sometimes it seems to take two cancels to really get rid of all the water. The dirty water is never being fully pumped out before the rinse, so my dishes aren't rinsing clean. I checked the drain hose and found no blockage, and I dismantled the interior as far as the filter and chopper blade and found no clogs. Any idea of what the problem might be? Thanks!
Try cleaning out the air gap. The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly. Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter? There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned. To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover. Hope that one of these helps!

When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.
