Whirpool DU1055xts water does not drain after wash

After a wash there is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I took out the three alan wrench screws at the inside bottom sprayer to remove the filter to clean but I am having difficulty removing the filter. Need directions to remove filter to see if I need to clean the filter. OR is there any other reason why the water will not drain.

Hi,

There is a fourth screw under the spray arm. Here are some instructions I put together to clean out the pump. But I do not think this will help the drain. The drain hose or drain pump could be restricted.

The best way to find the restriction is work backwards. Start at the sink where the dishwasher drain hose connects, take that connection apart and try to drain into a bucket. If it does not drain the work your way back to the dishwasher checking at every connection point.

This link will be for the pump cleaning.

How to make dishwasher drain? Water stands in bottom after washing. Also has buzzing sound!


Most likely you have something hard that got past the filter and got stuck in the drain pump, keeping the impeller from turning. Unplug the dishwasher. Siphon or vacuum out the water from the dishwasher. Remove the toe-kick panel(s) to get to the drain pump. Look carefully for a realease tab to press, then rotate the drain pump 1/8th to 1/4th turn to release it. Check for and clean out any foreigh objects, then re-assemble.

Water will not drain after completion


Check the bottom of the dishwasher (where the water drains to) and check there's nothing blocking it? Maybe give the filter a rinse to clear it.

There is still water on the dishes and in the dishwasher after the heated drying cycle. Not a lot but enough to wet the kitchen floor. What can we do?


check the kitchen drain is clear - looks like the drain cycle is not working efficiently.

Also make sure the filters at the base of dishwasher are clear.

Try a short cycle (like rinse only) and see if water drains at the end. If problem is occuring only during the normal wash cycle, then drying fan may be the problem.

Ensure the outlet pipe is below the level of your floor and straight to a drain or plumbed into the waste pipe directly with no chance of syphoning from standing water in your drain/waste pipe.

It's most likely that the filters in your dishwasher are blocked, the best way to clean them is to remove the filters from the bottom of the dishwasher, place them in the racks and run through the hottest wash cycle. It also helps to have a dishwasher cleaner inside the machine at the same time, these are available from most places that sell the dishwasher powder.

I have standing water when the dishwasher cycle is finished.


1. Drain blockage or kinked hose would be a good starting point. Check the d/w's housing the drain hose and the connection that goes to the sink. 2. The pump itslef could be in the running. 3. I would check to see if your unit has a drain valve it could be partially clogged.
