Not knowing what make or model you have I can only give you general advice. As a Maintenance Supervisor for an Apartment complex, I run into this all of the time.You will need to start by cleaning out the filter basket. it is under the plastic grate at the bottom of your dishwasher inside of the unit. There are a couple of things you will need to remove, but it is usually just a matter of a few screws. I find food, broken glass, (Be Careful), plastic wrappers and on and on. With this clogged or any impeded water flow the water will not drain. The other area to check is the airgap located on top of your sink. Pop the top off and carefully remove the plastic insert and see it that is clogged. Unless your pump is broken which is doubtful, these are the only two areas that will keep your dishwasher from draining.

Water stays in bottom drawer


Hello Joaquin Medeiros - Often when there is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher, it is because more than likely the control or drain pump assembly is faulty and possibly need replacing. However, if the unit is making a grinding noise then it is recommended for the drain motor to be diagnosed. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Doesn't drain out all the way water stays in


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water is staying in the bottom


Water staying in bottom is not a problem unless the dishwasher base is full of it and covers the wash arm.

This means the drain cycle is not working or dishwasher is shutting off before drain cycle.

Try to clean the filters at the base and check drain in kitchen sink side is clear.

Need the model number in case you want more specific instructions.

The water stays in the bottom of the dishwasher .


The drain pump is not working fully to discharge off all the water in the drain cycle. You must check the drain outlet for any blocks in the drain valve/pump. open and clean the unit. If ther pump is not effficiently pumping out in the ddrain cycle then the unit must be changed or serviced.

My bosch dishwasher will not fill with water. I have manually filled it but it just pumps it out when I switch it on.


the unit is going into drain mode. check your hose for leaks. when water leks in the base of the unit the float switch is activated and the unit will stay in drain mode until the water is removed. check float by removing side panel and look into bottom base for water.

Miele dishwasher g843 scvi water backed up on bottom of unit


When you drain the sink the water will go to the path of least resistance. Disconnect the dishwasher, cap the hole and see if water drains. If not then you have a plumbing issue.
Inside the dishwasher there is also a non return valve located in the sump. This should prevent water from entering the unit. Make sure it is in correctly.

Dishwasher does not drain


My dishwasher will not drain. The water stays in the bottom of the dishwasher. When it should drain, I do not hear anything happening where I used to hear the pump working. Is my pump bad?
