Suds and water staying in Whirlpool Quiet Partner III

I have noticed that suds have been staying in the bottom of the dishwasher the last 3 times it was used. Yesterday, I went into the kitchen and discovered that the dishwasher was leaking suds and water. I tried to running a rinse cycle and draining and the problem continues. The unit is only a year and a half old. Is this something we can fix ourselves?

I believe you may be over sudsing, Try a few cycles with vinegar and no soap. Do not use dishwashing soap at any time ever. See if the vinegar trick helps...helijm

Same problem. 2-3 inches of water left in the dishwasher at end.

Inspect for plugged drain screen. Sometimes you have to take apart the bottom area for access...

New Quiet Partner 2 doesn't drain at end of cycle.. how to fix?

May be that there was a little regular soap or something put in that made it suds up causing it not to drain. Vegetable oil poured into the dish washer tub will remove the suds. After running vegetable oil for about 5 minutes, pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel and No tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem.

common failures on that usually are the heating element. Look at the botton and see if it is broken anywhere.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom

Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.

Change the thermal fuse in the control and door switches. The thermal fuse is designed to fail if there is a problem with the switches.
