the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.

The problem is most likely that there is a chunk of glass or bone etc. in the small drain pump. this is an easy fix. remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, you will see the drain line which goes through the cabinet wall into the sink drain and at the lower end is attached to a small pump. Disconnect the hose clamp and the hose by the pump then unscrew the little pump from the frame of the dishwasher so u can look in it. Remove the blockage. Now reassemble everything and u will be back up and running

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks
Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.
Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.
