How much water are we talking about? If its say less than 2-3 cups, It may be the way it is plumbed to drain. The drain line is back washing a little after everything is finished.

If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

holding the center nut for lack of better word and unscrewing the wash arm, the next piece will require turning clockwise while pulling up on the plastic lock tab holding to up spout for water supply, gives you access ot 5 torx screws, after that theres 2 more torx screws giving you access to the chopper/ impeller area, thats as far as youll be able to go.

More than likely the filter is clogged,remove the spray arm(there is a threaded cap in the center of the arm twist it to the left,then remove the # 15 or 20 torx(star shaped) screws out of the filter cover(around the edges)The filter is round and runs around the outer edge of the pump housing it lifts right out,clean it and reverse the process.It's the most common issue with not draining on this model.

you can acess the impeller, by removing the lower spray arm, ther are 5 torx scrws holding the motor cover down, then from ther ther are 2 additional torx 15 screws covering the pump outlet and impeller housing, the impeller is spring loaded in place.

draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or
drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present.
If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove
the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then
the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain
filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump
Please note that
dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element
Hope this helps...
