Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose-filter assembly or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter located inside the front bottom panel for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. Take off the bottom access panel to clean the drain pump filter and hose. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
Hello & Welcome to FixYa As the water did not drain completely then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for any clogs/obstructions, to clean it you have to take off the bottom front panel and then clean the drain pump assembly. If you have already cleaned these parts and the unit will not work then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin

f 02 is a drain issue
check the drain hose make sure not plugged or kinked
check electrical connection at drain pump itself
on this unit there is a cleanout at bottom behind kick plate remove the 2 or 3 screws from bottom and you will see a a plastic clean out have a few towels ready or a wet vac works great...make sure you unplug unit during this as electricity and water do not mix well...
pull cover on clean out and check for any foreign material and while in there check pump impeller for coins also move hoses sometimes objects in hoses right before pump ....if all this does not correct you have a bad pump assembly most likely...
good luck and please vote...
completing the cycle if the dishwasher still has water in the bottom that means
that it is unable to drain. This problem occurs when either the drain hose is
blocked or the drain pump itself has gone bad. To solve this problem you can
check the drain hose and try to clean it before replacing the pump. Please get
back to me if you have any other questions.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn
hi just try this
Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Was the selected cycle interrupted before completing?
The Clean light will come on when the cycle is complete. Wait until the Clean light comes on before trying to manually drain dishwasher. Press Cancel/Drain to try and drain the standing water.
Is the water level just covering the pump module?
This is normal. A small amount of water will be seen in the bottom of the sump area at the base of the pump. This is to ensure that the pump seal does not dry out.
Is the dishwasher drain hose connected to a garbage disposal?
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" (50.8 cm) above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped up so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.
Is the drain hose too long?
If the supplied drain hose was replaced with a longer one it must be shorter than 12' (3.7m).
Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
Check pump impeller for damage. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
Can you give me a model and brand name. Does the washer drain at any time during the wash cycle?
Will it go into a spin at all in any setting? heavy duty, normal and delicate cycle? is water not draining?
