Jenny, you did not list a brand so we are unable to help 100%

Most access is from the rear panel, but often easier to access by turning machine on its side and coming in from the bottom. Follow the hose from the outlet to the pump and undo the clamps on in and out as blockages occur on both sides. After removal of any matter in the pipes, flush hoses from both ends to ensure flow. Connect inlet hose to pump and run some water through pump with drain hose disconnected to ensure pump is also clean. replace outlet hose and make sure clamps are done up tight otherwise they will leak.
Stand machine back upright and test.

Water not draining


Set the controls to off then power off at the mains for 30 mins and then power mains back on and run a drain program or a full wash program. If the water won’t drain away then the most likely problems are the door interlock switch is faulty, the drain water motor is faulty, there is a blockage in the drain outlet pipe or filter – this will need unblocking, there is a blockage in the water pump – this will need to be unblocked, the controller board is faulty – but this generally shows an error code. First turn off the mains power to the dishwasher then check the internal filter and screen and clean it thoroughly. Then check the waste water hose and any outlet valve and make sure that it is unblocked and free of any obstruction or waste material. If you have access to the water pump you can check that it is free of obstruction and is able to turn and that none of the impeller vanes have been damaged. Then if all this is OK then try turning on the mains power and running a hot wash cleaning cycle to flush out any remaining sludge / debris.
