Question about Dishwashers
It's normal for there to be about a hoseful of water left in the sump at the bottom of the machine after the cycle is over - it happens because the drain pump only works on water, so is never able to blow the last slug of water through the hose. Once the pump stops, this water runs back into the machine.
The sump is designed to be big enough to hold this amount of water without the level rising high enough to come back into the main cabinet, but in some machines you can see to the bottom if you look in the right place.
The installation instructions for the dishwasher will have had lots to say about size and position of the standpipe the drain hose goes into. Failure to follow these can increase the amount of water that runs back at the end of a cycle, so that might be worth a quick look if you think the quantities are excessive.
