Question about Dishwashers
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.

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.
