Water not fully draining during washing dishes. Stays approx 2 inches.
Have followed these instructions. After hitting these keys the only lights that go on are from the previous setting. The machine then goes into that cycle (wash - rinse etc). The problem is that the indicator or timer to allow for the water to drain is not functioning is leaving 2 inches of soapy/dirty water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I see that during the rinse cycle, and probably the wash cycle, water is added to the maching and some drains out. I can see it. What sensor/indicator/timer determines that the tub is empty or needs to be emptied and stays on long enough to allow the water to pump out? Remember, the pump was replaced
Re: Water not fully draining during washing dishes. Stays...
I did check out the Drain Hose. It is not clogged. I also pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and replaced the Drain Pump. You mentioned the Drain Valve. How and Where can I check out the Drain Valve??? If I hit Start/Restart twice It drains a little at a time until all the water is drained out. The next and all other times leaves the 2 inches of water in the Dishwasher.Jack

Re: Water not fully draining during washing dishes. Stays...
Heres some few other simple checking & steps, that will guide you to the process...
1st Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink) and, using a wire, clean it. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks and blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line.
2nd Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and--if your dishwasher is made to allow this-- remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet. Unscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it.
3rd Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged
4th If it still doesn't drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. At this point, it's usually best to call a repair person. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose.

There is a drain screen on the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned out on a regular basis, especially if you put in dishes that haven't been rinsed off. Food waste will plug up the screen and not let the water drain out fast enough
If that screen gets blocked, the water doesn't have enough time to be drained from the washer during the timer sequence and the water will remain at the bottom.
Start the wash programme
1. Check that when the dishes and cutlery are loaded in the dishwasher
the spray arms are free to rotate.
2. Open the water tap fully.
3. Shut the door.
4. Press the ON/OFF button. ON/OFF button indicator comes on. 5. Press the button for the programme required (see "Programme Table"). The programme indicator lights up. One or two lights will flash in the multi-display. During this time it is possible to reselect the programme. The selected washing programme begins after approx. 6 seconds. The current wash programme stage will always be shown in the multi-display.
3 If the top light and/or the middle light in the multi-display flash after
the programme has started please read the section "What to do, if...".
Hello, I do not suspect the control is the problem,it could be a weak pump OR not enough water in tub to be circulated. The water level should be at or just above the level of the heat element if it is less..the water valve is bad and not fully opening or the water supply into that valve is restricted
Factory-supplied equipment There is a packet of accessory parts supplied with your washer. Check that all the accessory parts supplied for your model are there. If any parts are missing contact your dealer immediately.
Inside the drum Water supply hose for cold water (blue marking). Water supply hose for hot water (red marking). Water drain hose. A bag which contains Covers to be placed over the holes for the transport bolts (after removing them). Clamp for drain hose. Wrench for levelling. Elbow for attaching the drain hose, e.g. to a sink. Depending on the type of connection, the following may also be required
Y-connector (can be obtained from any hardware store) in case there is only a cold water connection available.
Any residual moisture inside the drum is due to the final testing which every washing machine undergoes before leaving the factory.
On the rear of the appliance Power cord with plug.
C = cold water connection
H = hot water connection
Useful tools The following tools are helpful
Box cutter. Flat head screwdriver. Closed wrench (1/2"/13mm). Bubble level.
Dimensions a = 27.0 inches (686 mm) b = 30.7 inches (780 mm) c = 37.0 inches (940 mm) d = 16.0 inches (407 mm) Door opening angle 180 Approx. weight = 220 lbs (100 kg) Installation area
Never ground the washer to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines or hot water pipes.
Appliance stability is important, otherwise the washing machine could "walk" during the spin cycles.
The installation area must be solid and even. Soft floor surfaces, such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing, are not suitable.
If the washing machine is to be installed on a weak wood floor consider the following
0 If possible, place the washing machine in a corner of the room. 0 Screw a water resistant wooden board (at least 3/4" thick) to the floor. 0 Secure the feet of the washing machine with holding brackets. Order the holding brackets (set) from Siemens Customer Service (WMZ 2200).
Pedestal Mounting If mounting the washer on the Siemens pedestal (accessory no. WZ20395) follow the instructions supplied with the pedestal.
if Install pedestal prior to removing transport bolts.
Closet If installing the washer in a closet, observe the minimum distances according to the following table
Minimum Installation Clearances Closet Sides 1/4" (6 mm) Top 12" (305 mm) Rear 2,5" (64 mm) Front 1/4" (6 mm) Ventilation Top 48 sq. in (310 sq. cm), Bottom 24 sq. in (155 sq. cm)
If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.
The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.
It sounds like the drain tube is partly clogged.
If you have a shop-vac you could try that. Try to set dishwasher back on discharge,see if water gose out the second time. if it still dont go out it is clogged. goodluck
Switch immediately to a Brand Name Dishwasher powder (like Electrosol or Cascade.) Avoid gels, tablets and never use a dish soap that is meant for washing dishes in a sink. This will solve the "bubbles" problem.
Yes, dishwashers do maintain some level of water inside to keep the pump seals/gaskets from drying out or seizing. As long as the water down there is clear and has no odor, you and your apartment's dishwasher is fine.
OK? Post back with any more questions.
If you have ever experienced the problem where you washer continually fills but never reaches the proper level (not an overflow). Or, the wash tub water level cannot be maintained, because the water level keeps dropping. You may be experiencing what is known as “siphoning”. This occurs when there is no air gap for the drain line at the standpipe. The standpipe is the drain pipe at the wall where the washer drain line is placed. With no air gap, a vacuum is created, and water will begin to drain from the wash tub prematurely. To prevent this from occurring, follow this advice:
* The standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter to allow a sufficient air gap between the top of the standpipe and the drain hose. * The standpipe should be a minimum of 34” from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height. * DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe. Many consumers seal the standpipe in the belief that this will prevent overflows, or get rid of drain odors. This often creates more problems than solutions. * DO NOT place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. Water stays in the drain trap area of the standpipe. If the end of the drain hose rests in this area, no air gap is created, and this can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient. * The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is
typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out
properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the
house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air
gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently
installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the
dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer
