    I manually drained as much water as possible before adding the liquid fabric softener and running the complete cycle. At the end of the cycle the reservoir was again full of water. The were no suds in the water. As the machine ran through the cycles, I listened for the sound of water draining through the sink drain but did not hear any water running down the drain.

    It is a Kenmore Model C110743700.
    It was installed in an older house we purchased about 7 years ago. We do not have a manual to go with it so we don't know how old it is. I suspect it is quite old.
    I did an internet search on the model number and came up with no results.

Should not be any soap at all. If the soap has small shiny bubbles in it you have an oversuds problem which will cause the pump to cavitate during pump out. After setting for while the soap turns into water until the next wash. Easy fix is use 1/2 cup of liquid fabric softener and run thru complete cycle with heat dry off to dissipate all of the soap residue. Hope this helps.

The water will not drain from the dish washer and there does not seem to be anything blocking the drain. I ran it through another cycle and now it is leaking water slowly. Is there anyway to drain this...


I would suggest removing and cleaning the filter sometimes debree and build up of small particals can stop it from draining. Clean the filter in hot soapy water and then replace it in the dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a cycle, this worked for me.

Water in bottom of dishwasher, how do i drain & reset?


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Doesn't drain; glasses have film; rinses with used, soapy water


The white film problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishwasher not draining after a power cut


I would run the heated dry cycle a few times to try and get rid of that residual water, then restart the cycle and see if it work now. If it still is a problem try cleaning out the drain line behind the dishwasher, this is a very common problem with draining. If not that then might need a valve or if you have a new garbage disposal you need to punch out a peice of the plastic or it wont drain. Hope this helped, good luck

Soapy water standing in bottom not rinsing soap off dishes


It sounds as if it is not draining. Try to trace the drain line under the sink. Usually it goes into a disposall. The port where it connects to the disposall may be clogged. Another thought. If you had the disposall replaced recently they may not have taken the knock out plug out which would give the drain water no where to go.

Dishwasher does not complete cycle


The solution i'm going to give you might sound weird but it should work. The drain hose should have a curve of about 36 inches up and then down to the drain. This avoids the water to drain on its own, the water has to be forced out by the washing machine. hope it helps.

HElp Dishes not coming clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
