Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

SOURCE: maytag dishwasher doesn't completely drain!

First check to see if anything has gotten into the sump drain inside the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Sometimes a piece of plastic wrap, or other small item can become lodged there, causing the DW to drain slowly.

If nothing there, check the air-gap device at the sink, as these can become clogged over time and that would also prevent proper draining. The air-gap is the round (usually silver chrome colored) cap mounted on the corner of the sink). Pull off the cap, it comes straight up with a little twist and polling motion. Clean out the screen filter and also look down the hose to see if there are any obstructions in the drain hose.

If that is OK, check the drain hose from the air-gap down to the connection at the sink drain, or if you have a disposal, where it is connected to the disposal. Sometimes small bits of stuff can get stuck in the hose at these various points and any build up over time, will make proper draining difficult.

You can also flush the drain lines with hot water to make sure the lines are clear. If none of this works, you could have something in the DW sump pump and that will require removing the DW from under the counter and checking the pump area for obstructions. Sometimes you can easily remove the flexible pump body and get at the drain valves. Just be sure to disconnect the power and turn off the water supply before removing the DW to attempt any repairs.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Dishwasher never cleans, glasses gritty dirty -- Bosch terrible s

you obviously need to check and make sure that you've cleaned your filter system. it needs to be cleaned every couple of months. and also make sure that your washing fans, the ones that spray water, aren't clogged. they need to be washed out and de-clogged regularly as well... i had this same problem.. but it worked fine once i cleaned the system.

Why will my dishwasher Electrolux model #EIDW5905JS0A, not drain completely at the end of its cycle.


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW5905JS, will not completely drain at the end of the cycle. It is not normal for water to remain in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle. If water remains in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle, the dishwasher may not be draining properly. Please follow these troubleshooting tips:

    1)If unit is hooked up to a garbage disposal, make sure the disposer is empty.

    2)If unit is hooked up to a new food waste disposer, check to see if the "knockout" plug located inside the disposal inlet has been removed.

    3)Check to see if drain hose is kinked.

    4)Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.


    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

My thermador dw44zs dishwasher: drain pump runs continuously when turned on even when the door is open. I can't seem to reset the cycle to allow for water to come into the dishwash


There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 0426 and 0424. You can also remove 0418 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removeds) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. If the d/w is connected via a sealed spigot to the sink, remove the grey hose and unscrew the spigot adaptor from the sink and ensure there are no blockages. There may be water in the base of the d/w (base as below the tank, not under the filter) this will activate the flood safety, so check valve, hoses etc for leaks. You will have to manually clear the water from the base pan to deactivate the safety device. Sit the front of the d/w on a large towel and tip the whole unit forward, the base water will then come out. Whilst you have the side panel off, check that the red rod connected to the pressure chamber is not activating the microswitch.

Profile dishwasher not draining at end of cycle.


It would have helped if you provided the model no.

Check this GE website for possible causes. If you do not have the user manual then you can also download it from here, But you will need the model number. (should be etched on the body of the dishwasher)

Dishwasher doesn't drain


Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.
