Check the filters (triclean you have to remove the 2 screws on both upper and lower filters inside the machine). Remember how they came apart because you will have to reassemble them 8)
Check both ends of the flex tube from the dishwasher to the drain, and the drain port for blockages.

Water is staying in the bottom


Water staying in bottom is not a problem unless the dishwasher base is full of it and covers the wash arm.

This means the drain cycle is not working or dishwasher is shutting off before drain cycle.

Try to clean the filters at the base and check drain in kitchen sink side is clear.

Need the model number in case you want more specific instructions.

I have standing water in my dishwasher. How do I unclog the drain?


It will be smelly water and if you have access to a shop vac that will help you remove the standing water if not use a bowl or turkey blaster listed below.
Use a small bowl to remove standing water from washer to access screen to remove and check for blockage. Once you have removed all the water that you can with a bowl or cup. You can use a turkey blaster to sucton remaining water from dishwasher.
Then you remove screen and clean out drain and also check drain line for blockage from dishwasher to under sink.

Clean out drain to unclog in bottom of dishwasher and you may have to remove drain line to clean it.

Has a bad oder


There are a few ways that people use to clean a smelly dishwasher .. First check the strainer at the bottom of the dishwasher for any food residue .. remove that before treating the washer .. then you can do some or one or all of these to see what works for you
If the strainer is messy, pour a good layer of baking soda in the strainer , then pour in some vinegar, it will foam and clean the strainer .. periodically adding vinegar until the foaming stops.
Put a cup or two of vinegar in the washer and run an empty cycle , use it on hot water cycle.
Put in some bleach and run an empty cycle
Put some lemonaide mix in the washer and run it ..

Good luck

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 left in bottom of dishwasher after cleaning


I suggest checking the drain and screen. There is most likely a little clog in there. If there is even the slightest amount of clog, the washer will not finish the drain cycle.

Won't drain


Make sure the garbage disposal is clear so the water can exit. After that, you may have something caught in the drain hose or check valve. It would require removing the bottom kick plate to gain access to check.

Water draining is premature


In my case, I had the same problem until I realized the drain hose was not looped high enough. Once I looped the drain hose higher than the dishwasher, the problem went away and it washes dishes perfectly.

When the drain hose is installed too low, the water in the machine will only stay as high as the hose is installed because of the laws of physics.

The same applies to laundry machines - that is why the drain hose is set to drain from a higher point than the drum of the washer.

Good luck and Blessings!
