Dishwasher (Kleenmaid DW361) not draining properly at the end of the cycle. Just a small amount of water remains in the bottom.


How much is a small amount? I presume this is something new, since a little water always remains to protect the lower seal.

Otherwise, use a flashlight to look into the sink drain and ensure there is strong flow from the DW when it is pumping out water. If not, there may be an obstruction in the discharge line.

On some units (my Samsung??) there is a float chamber on the side (entire unit must be pulled from enclosure) that gets clogged and discombobulates (technical term??) the water level reading, allowing water to remain in the tub. Cleaning required!

Debris may also accumulate under the cover on the bottom of the tub which effects proper draining. Fasteners are usually obvious and you may be surprised at the mess.

Be careful to note positions of all gaskets and screws!

Is it normal for 2 inches of water to remain in space where filter container is positioned...whenever filter is removed water is in the compartment where filter rests


In my experience the lowest section of the washer has always retained some water about a cup or two. If the one way valve(check valve) in the drain hose has failed or residue trapped in it more water will drain back at the end of cycle. You can see from the image the volume of additional water that would be trapped in the hose that if the one way valve leaks; the water in the hose would leak back into the tub.

the drain hose is required to go above the drain connection to prevent back flow into the washer. the one way valve in the drain hose is required to prevent back flow into the tub in the event of a blocked drain.

I hope that this helps.

Check Valve Replacement part 8268375 Whirlpool Dishwasher Repair

In some washers the check valve is critical because the pump reverses during the normal cycle. The attached video is an example of the check valve replacement in a Whirlpool. I have found all washers are similar.

You can usually hear when the pump has emptied the tub by a change of pitch from the motor. If you quickly open the door and observe the remaining water level that is as low as I would expect.

Dishwasher draw not emptying water at end of washing cycle


I am assuming you have a Fisher Paykel or similar double drawer dishwasher. Based on your symptoms it is very likely there is dirt or some blockage in the drain sump which needs to be cleared. If you have followed the normal procedure of cleaning filters etc, and there is no difference then you will have to take a thin rigid metal wire and run it through the channel between the rotor cavity and the drain sump. There could be a seed or a bone chip sitting there. I am assuming the pump rotor runs normal and you can hear water flow through the drain hose into outlet drain. Please provide make and model number of dishwasher for help with better diagnostic.

LG Dishwasher LD-1420T1 Tripping the main Power Board


Looks like the pump motor is drawing lot of current and tripping the circuit breaker. Need to check if there is any water inside it. Or simply the capacitor is leaky and causes motor to draw current.

See this part.

Residue has been remaining only in the glass glasses on the top rack


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

My maytag is about 2 years old, we recently can't get the residual water after the wash to drain, so there is always water sitting in the bottom of it, it runs, cleans but wont drain all the water. what...


WEll, look for restricted screens on all pump intakes, and look for kinked drain hose. Some water MUST remain in the bottom, but usually not enough to see.

Grit like residue after cycle finishes.


I had the same problem and it was fixed by switching dishwasher soap. We always used the same liquid soap for years and when this problem came out of the blue (about 8 months ago) I switched to Cascade action pacs with Dawn. It did the trick! No more residue since then. We now are having a problem with the dishwasher not draining (our unit is 8 years old), but the grit issue has been handled!
