Hello Pat. Generally, when the dishwasher does not completely drain there is a partial blockage somewhere between the drain pump near the floor under the dishwasher and the trap in the kitchen sink. The only way to clear the partial blockage is to disassemble the drain. Begin by removing the lower panel on the front bottom of the machine. For that job you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver and a flash light.

Once the panel is off you will see the drain hose which goes through the side of the sink cabinet and heads down to the lower front of the dishwasher where it attaches to a small pump. Disconnect the drain line at that point, be prepared for the 2 cups of water that will flow out when the disconnection is done.

Unscrew the pump from the frame of the dishwasher so you can look inside of it where you may find the culprit, often a chunk of bone or glass. If the blockage is not in the pump, the next step is to disconnect the other end of the drain line so you can thoroughly check it by running water through it. Next, check inside of the garbage disposal if you have one, and then in the sink trap.

Once you have cleared the partial blockage reassemble everything. Problem solved. Joe

Doesn't drain fully model GU980SCGG2 serial FJ3936511


Hello,

Everyone expects their dishwasher will work correctly. They can become nonchalant about it until one day it does not function. Sometimes the dishwasher doesn't drain as expected. Most people immediately call the plumber when their dishwasher doesn't work. There are several things you can try at home before having to pay an expensive service fee.



Instructions
  • Basic Tools,Rags
  1. Check the basics. Make sure that the dishwasher has actually finish the cycle. Your dishwasher will not drain until the end of the cycle. Many things may have interrupted the cycle. Check circuit breaker and reset it if appropriate. Also check the fuse. It is possible that you could have tripped a circuit have way through the cycle. Make sure the door is properly closed. Ensure you have chosen a cycle on the dishwasher. It is amazing the problems children could accidentally cause, that are easy fixes.
  2. Remove any excess food at the bottom of the dishwasher. The best way to do this is with your hands. Large food particles can block from going into the drain.This is also another extremely easy fix to make your dishwasher to drain.
  3. Check to ensure that the hoses are still attached. Use your manual to find where the hoses are. If they are not attached the owner's manual will give you instructions on how the attach the hoses to your specific dishwasher.
  4. Attempt to declog the line. Disconnect the hose from under your sink and check to see if there are any clogs. Use a hanger or towels, remove the clog from the hose.
  5. Remove the dishwasher basket. Again refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions.Normally you will remove it with a screwdriver. Make sure to work slowly. As you take the basket apart, you will be able to see if it needs to be cleaned. If there is dirt or debris, you can clean the parts with a rag or paper towel. After cleaning these parts, you can replace the basket.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model 15752000 is not draining completely after cycle has finished


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

One the water in the bottom of the machine is more than likely becuase it is not draining properly reason?
Thenpump or drain pipe could be blocked or the filter or outlet at the bottom of the unit is clogged with food,Two are you useing dishwasher powder or blocks and not dishwashing liquide,three chech the wash arem holes are not clogged with food all holes must be open if two or so clogged it will spin the arm but will not wash properly and naturally will not rinse properly they must aslo be clean.Last make sure the machine is heating the water and not trying wash cold do this by stopping the machine mid cycle and open the door is there steam if so cool leave it to finnish the wash so clean filter ,wash arms,drain pipe blow into it and see if ant food particals appear in the machine,
