Question about Dishwashers
First check the drain hose, ensure that it is not kinked or blocked, and check that the hose is placed at the height specified in the user manual (generally 18-20 inches). If the drain hose is too low you may get siphoning, that means that at the end of the cycle (and during cycle) water is re-fluxing inside the washer tube.
Here a page explaining the problem.
Once you are sure that the drain hose is OK, replace the pressure switch. The pressure switch is the part that regulates the water level in filling and drain parts of the cycle.
If the drain pump does not empty water complely, then the pressure switch is likely the culprit.
The pressure switch is difficult to test, but the part is not expensive.
The PS is often replaced straight away.
