After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone??
If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.

Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher,

Whirlpool DU915pwk80 not draining after cycle complete. I can run the cycle...and it doesn't overflow but it doesn't drain when its complete, i still have a couple inches of water in the bottom of the...

first thing that i would check is your drain line at disposer or sink.under sink. check to make sure its not clogged up. both the hose and were the hose hooks uo to look inside and see if blocked if so clean out with a flat blade srewdriver and test it, if drains better then that was the problem, also check for a kincked or pinched drain hose, if all that is good sounds like maybe your drain pump is bad. hope this helps

It doesn't drain completely

if ur unit is connected to an air gap,which is mounted rhs rear corner of ur kitchen sink,remove the air gap cover and look for any food debris stuck there.debris will restrict the free flow of water during and machine has fixed 2 min drain cycle. so some water can remain the unit after drain cycle is over.

There is a drain hose that runs from your dishwasher to underneath your sink. (usually connects in right below the drain spout)

It sounds like this may have become clogged, or the sink drain is clogged causing the water to back-up in to the dishwasher drain hose.

Our dishwasher was gushing water after a cycle

If you dish washer pumped or drained water up into you sink then you drain line from the sink or even further down is clugged up, Machine out drain line. A drip sized cable machine can be rented. I recomend a 1/4 inch line. You will only have to go frim the sink to the main line.

Water in the dishwasher after the the cycle is complete

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Water not fully draining during washing dishes. Stays approx 2 inches.

heres some few other simple checking & steps, that will guide you to the process...

Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink) and, using a wire, clean it. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks and blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line.

Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and--if your dishwasher is made to allow this-- remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet. Unscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it.

Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged

If it still doesn't drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. At this point, it's usually best to call a repair person. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose.

Let me know..
