Hello. Most likely you have a partial blockage in your dishwasher drain line between the floor of the machine where the drain pump may have debris in it and the trap under the kitchen sink. If you are handy you can remove the lower front panel of the machine, locate the small pump at the end of the drain hose, remove the pump to physically examine it and remove any glass or other debris in there and then check the rest of the drain line right to the trap under the sink.

Be sure to begin by turning off the breaker to the dishwasher to eliminate any shock hazard. J.

Should the inside of the elite dishwasher still be wet at the end of the cycle?

If you are talking about having a small amount of water down in the bottom of your dishwasher, that is normal. There is a sump down there that needs to have water in it. If you are talking about having water on the walls, that is probably just condensation from the cycle when you run the heater. Try cracking the door after the cycle is done to let the excess steam out of the dishwasher and that may eliminate the water on the walls. Hope this helps!

Check for food in the trap filter. There shouls always be a small amount of water to expand the seal to prevent this and if the dishwasher is used unfrequently this may be a cause. You might need a new gasket. Just gotta love working on your back with water leaks it just makes my day.You can change the whole sump assembly but that's a lot of $$$.

Should there be water left in the bottom of the dishwasher after a cycle?

Yes - there should be a small amount beneath the filter screen - the pump never gets 100 % of the water out - it cavitates and there is a small residule amount in the bottom - this water is exchanged with each wash

Since mine does the very same thing, it's my guess that is the sterilising cycle as by this point it has already washed, done a short fill to remove any remaining detergent, and two rinses. I'm also assuming the second short fill is just to cover the heating element and/or to to generate an amount of steam having being heated by the element (I'm basing that assumption on the heat of the dishes at the end of end of the cycle and the heat of the water when it drains)

We have water left in the dishwasher when cycle is done. Is this normal?

This depends on how much water. If it is only a few cups of water its not a big deal. If the entire bottom is full then you have a problem with the drain pump. That is something that can be fixed by an owner if you are fairly handy. But if you aren't it should not be too expensive to bring in a service company.

Water keeps coming back into dishwasher after cycle is done

Hi, If the drain hose is attached under the sink, make sure that the drain hose is looped higher then the outlet it is attached to.
Most model will hold a small amount of water after draining to keep the seals moist.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Door gasket or sealOver time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

GE dishwasher

If you have a fair amount of water in the bottom of most, if not all dishwashers then the problem solution involves one of several things to check.. First off.. is there a drain filter ( at the bottom of your dishwashere where the water gets drawn to the pump) that may be clogged up with waste material from the dishes? If that is clean... then the next thing I would check is for any kinks or clogs in the drain hose leading out to the drain system in your house.. ( many times the drain hose is attached to the side of the sink garbage disposal but it may have a direct attachement to the drain itself ( normally under the sink).. check that for obstructions.. and as a last resort.. if you do not see any kinks in that line.. you can detach it and cycle the dishwasher ( without dishes loaded) and run the dishwasher in a large bucket to see what kind of flow you get.. if you get a fairly good flow.. then you your pumping system is ok but your drain system in your home may be clogged ( improperly vented ) or restrictive to flow.. First things first.. check the drain screen, check the hose ... check the flow into a non restrictive bucket.. If the flow is weak.. then you may have a clogged or damaged pump.. Hope this helps you...
