Question about GE 24 in. GLD5860LSS Stainless Still Built-in Dishwasher
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 instructions).

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
I see that you need assistance in draining the remaining water out of your Frigidaire dishwasher. It is normal for a little water to remain inside of your dishwasher. If it is more than two or three inches it could be a draining issue. I would check to make sure the drain hose is not clogged or restricted. You should also review the filter, which you can find under the bottom rack, to make sure that it is not clogged. If you have reviewed these steps and water still remains it could be a possible issue with your drain pump. I recommend having a professional technician out to perform repairs because this will require you to uninstall and disassemble your dishwasher. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a dishwashing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated.If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.
