Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

Hi,
the first things to look for, are the simplist faults.
1:) Check that the Outlet Hose-Pipe Isn,t Blocked-Kinked Or Bent.
2:) Check that the Pump, is not clogged/Blocked or not-functioning.

Hope this helps you start, your fault-finding successfully.

So it sounds to me like it is your "pump" I work for an appliance parts dealer and it looks to me like the pump you need is originally part# 99002750 but then it changes to #6-917641....It runs about $57.00 and you can find this product at www.allbrandonline.com
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher

I had the same problem - a 10 minute fix. The issue tends to be that the trap gets clogged by debris (like broken glass etc.) and restricts the amount of water that can be evacuated by the tub.

1. Undo the trap cover (two hex headed screws)
2. Remove the trap cover
3. Remove the inner trap grate
4. BE CAREFUL NOW ! Gently remove debris - this can have broken glass in it !!! - You can use a wet vac if you have one. Ensure all debrs is removed and the trap is clear.
5. Clean trap cover and grate
6. Re-install cover and grate
7. Bingo !

Water standing in bottom of dishwasher,after wash cycle is finished? This is a Kenmore model 665.1565591


My problem too recently.

I blew compressed air back through the drain line and let it bubble up in the standing water in the dishwasher. Then I put it through another cycle and everything was fine. Something must have gotten clogged and the air blew it out.

ASKO dishwasher won't drain and makes rattling sound.


I had tried several failed attempts to fix this problem. Finally I got on my knees and asked God to make the dishwasher run in Christ's name. The dishwasher just completed it's first cycle without any problems.
