Question about Whirlpool GU1200XTLS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
At the end of the cycle, when I open the door, there is water in the bottom. During the other parts of the cycle, water does get cleared out of it into the disposal fine. I can see it and hear it. But between the rinse cycle and the finish, it fills up and never empties out. When I open the door, the water is filled up in the bottom.
won't drain and water leaks out onto floor. Only drains when you cancel the cycle
SOURCE: water isnt draining
Check your drain line and/or drain pump. The drain line should have a high loop at the point prior to where it connects to your drainage system in order to prevent drain water from the kitchen sink from back flowing into the dishwasher. In addition, most drain pumps have a small check valve that prevents this water from backing up as well. However, if you have something lodged in the drain pump (i.e., a toothpick) it can prevent the check valve from closing properly. This can cause water to back up into the dishwasher. You mentioned that the water will not drain. Is the drain pumping runnings at all? Please post back and let me know.

More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.

Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.

Try cleaning out the air gap. The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly. Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter? There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned. To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover. Hope that one of these helps!

I have the same model and had this issue twice in four years. What causes this is a water level switch inside the dishwasher, left at the bottom, almost touching the door. The switch has a cover that looks like a cup upside down. Remove that cover and give a perfect, thorough cleaning in and around the switch (including inside the cover) to make it look new again. The switch should start working freely again. You don't need to buy new parts to replace anything.
