Please check drain hose for a squees
Remove drain hose from garbage disposal (if you have one) and try to drain into a bucket. See the pressure and it helps to clean the garbage disposal pipe.

How much water are we talking about? If its say less than 2-3 cups, It may be the way it is plumbed to drain. The drain line is back washing a little after everything is finished.

Dishwasher wont completely drain and turns off

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher shuts off near the end of the cycle, leaving water in the bottom of the tub. I also see that the display is going black. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. When power is restored, run any cycle. If you are still noticing your dishwasher shutting off towards then end of the cycle and water being left in the tub, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to shut off and not drain. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Water standing in tub

If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle

If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

Water didn't drain, left in bottom of washer tub

I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water

Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle

As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

GE 24in. dishwasher GSD5630D00WW

Bill, I see this all the time in GE, that valve under the back strainer is called the piston nut assy. If it's not seating you will have water left in the tub at the end of the cycle. Part #wd24x220, can get it for around 13.95, You replace it from the top, it unscrews....Catriver.
