Without a proper model number, it sounds like either the drain pump is defective or something is stuck in it or the drain tubing is clogged. Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Dishwasher (Kleenmaid DW361) not draining properly at the end of the cycle. Just a small amount of water remains in the bottom.


How much is a small amount? I presume this is something new, since a little water always remains to protect the lower seal.

Otherwise, use a flashlight to look into the sink drain and ensure there is strong flow from the DW when it is pumping out water. If not, there may be an obstruction in the discharge line.

On some units (my Samsung??) there is a float chamber on the side (entire unit must be pulled from enclosure) that gets clogged and discombobulates (technical term??) the water level reading, allowing water to remain in the tub. Cleaning required!

Debris may also accumulate under the cover on the bottom of the tub which effects proper draining. Fasteners are usually obvious and you may be surprised at the mess.

Be careful to note positions of all gaskets and screws!

Asko dishwasher did not finish complete washing cycle and now has a very low humming sound. It will not start washing cycle. I have turned it on and off but after I turn it back on humming sound...


Some wash water may have gotten into the bottom pan area below the wash tub. If water has overflowed from the tub into the bottom pan, the drain pump will activate and remain active until water has been removed from the bottom pan. To check for this, the lower front panels will need to be removed. With power turned off at the breaker, a wet-vac can be used to remove water from the bottom pan. If there was water there, check the door seals, door closure and make sure the drain hose has a high-drain loop. If the drain is shared with the kitchen sink, it may simply have backed up into the dishwasher through the drain hose when a full sink was emptied. The best drain system is for the dishwasher to have its own separate drain.

The water remains in the tub and will not pump out.


Had the same problem with a GE. Try bailing it out and checking the filters. When the water level gets low enough the dishwasher will work again.

Maytag DWC7602 drainage problem from tub bottom


OK. Try these steps.
-If hooked up to a food waste disposer, be sure the "knock out" is removed from the disposal inlet.
-Be sure the drain hose is ELEVATED at least 32" so water cannot siphon back in the tub.
-Check for a food obstruction in the drain or disposer.
-Check drain hose for a kink.
-Check your home's circuit breaker or fuse box.
-Check that the cycle is completed.
Hope this helps you!

Not draining


Are you sure your drain system is not clogged or restricting water flow ? When you say youtook off the hose off under the sink and it seemed to be lots of water running on the rise cycle .. that suggests that you may have a restriction after the drain hose in your house drain system. ...

Some other considerations..

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance.
  • Some water, usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. However, if water is covering the bottom of the tub, the dishwasher is not draining properly.

  • Check for paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub.

  • Make sure that the right type and amount of detergent is used: Using the wrong type or too much detergent can cause sudsing that can prevent the dishwasher from draining. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used
Hope this helps you...
