Most likely a clog, either along the drain hose, or more likely, actually in the air gap vent. Disconnect the drain hose from the dishwasher and place a bucket under it. Run the drain cycle. This should clear any clog along the drain line. Remove the air gap vent from the top of the sink and disconnect the other hose. Remove the small cap at the top of the vent by pressing the small clips on opposite sides of each other and lift the cap out. Using either a strong flow of water, or, a thin, long-blade screwdriver, remove any debris from the two hose connectors. (Problem is most likely in the smaller hose connector which is preventing water from flowing over to the other connector to drain out). So, during operation, water goes up the small drain hose, but can't go any further and water remains in the dishwasher.
Clearing the air vent cap/filter should solve your problem.
I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.
I blew compressed air back through the drain line and let it bubble up in the standing water in the dishwasher. Then I put it through another cycle and everything was fine. Something must have gotten clogged and the air blew it out.
You may need to tip the dishwasher forward, use a towel as water will get every where otherwise. once drained put it through another cycle. this should reset the drainage level. hope this works as it has for ours, bye
It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
