If you can hear the pump operating then possibility is that the filter is blocked. Wondering if you have cleaned the filter. It is also possible there is a kink in the drain hose.

If this is a new installation, ie, you are trying to operate first time after installing then check the installation instructions on where the drain pipe is going - is the discharge point at the recommended height.

Finally, if you can't hear the pump - then the pump or the pump drive is broken. I am assuming the motor is still ok if you hear the wash arm rotating.

good luck

It sounds like there are some faulty wiring connections to the motor.

You will have to check your wiring from the timer to the motor.

Does it do the same thing if you select a different cycle on the push buttons?

The wiring diagram should be in the bottom access panel of the dishwasher or in the control panel.

Dishwasher won't drain.Leaves several inches of water in bottom of unit after cycle is complete


Check for blockages in the base of the dishwasher under filter etc.
Also make sure the kitchen drain is clear and if you have garbage disposer run it prior to running the dishwasher.

Also need to confirm if the dishwasher pump is actually operating during the drain cycle. If the pump is faulty then it will not drain. Provide full model number of dishwasher if you need further assessment of the problem. Good luck.

Draining after completion of cycle


Hello,
Miele dishwashers are typical not to drain all of the water. It is the way the siphoning system is designed. You will always have a bit of standing water after cycle completion but should not be above the bottom filter. You can manually drain the dishwasher by selecting any cycle and letting it run for 30 seconds and then turn the dishwasher off. Hope this helps

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

Hotpoint dishwasher full of water after cycle complete


If the motor is running, the diverter solenoid valve is probably not functioning. It is attached to the pump. With the power off, take the solenoid apart and remove whatever is jamming it. Toothpicks are a favorite as are any large food particle. It may also be bad. Not the problem...you may have a defective timer or your outlet hose is clogged or kinked.
