Question about Dishwashers
during the extraction cycle their is a drain solonoid valve that is supposed to open and let the water out, and the extraction pump will pump it out, so knowing this first when the unit gets to the point where it is supposed to drain listen carfully and see if you hear any clicking and if so good the solonoid is getting power next listen and see if you can hear the pump starts to hum if it does i would have to suggest that the solonoid is probably bad solonoid valves normally fail in the closed position which will not let any water pass thru it ok ?

Check for a blockage or, kink in your discharge hose (make sure the knock out has been removed on your garbage disposal hose nipple where the discharge tube enters it) always happens

The issue is with the water not draining as something might
be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this
issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the
drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly
located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be
resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is
fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.
