    we have the same problem. The drying cycle is complete. Lines are not clogged or kinked. How do you get to the filter to check it?

    after the complete cycle there is water standing in the bottom. How can I see if the drains or food traps are clogged?

Are you leaving it long enough to finish it's programme or are you opening it when the drying light is on as some dishwashers leave a bit of water in the bottom to help with the drying programme

Why is there water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher after it has completed the wash and dry cycles.......


If water remains in the dishwasher after the cycles end, check the kitchen sink drain to make sure it's not clogged. If there's no clog, try pressing the Cancel button; most dishwashers run the drain pump when the Cancel button is pressed.
Check the dishwasher drain line, drain path and drain pump.

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?

The dishwasher won't drain completely. Water is left standing in the bottom of the tub.


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My Dishwasher works but still leaves some standing water.


Check the filter unit located at the bottom (inside) rear for clogging. Sometimes food will accumulate in the filter and not allow the unit to completely drain.
