It could be a firm clog in the exit hose but you should be able to hear the pump running during the last portion of the wash & rinse cycles.
If you don't, then the pump has likely failed.

Ken more Dishwasher won't drain on final cycle. It will drain if the Start/cancel button is pressed


I'm not familiar with this exact model number..... Is this an older dishwasher with a dial control? If so, then the timer is probably bad, and is not allowing enough time for the drain pump to fully drain out the water.

Have older kenmore dishwasher that goes through cycle but won't drain. Is there a filter somewhere?


No, there is no filter, but there is a check valve at the drain pump end of the dishwasher. Sometimes something gets stuck right there. The other place to check is where the drain hose goes into the garbage disposal - make sure it is clear there.

Check to see if it is filling with water and not draining it right back out. Give model number so I can look for a diagram to repair. Just fixed mine as it was doing the same thing.

My dishwasher wont drain out? any ideas?


Start checking drain hose first.
Check water level switch.
If water level is ok check drain pump lines , and test drain pump.
If everything else is ok, test the control board (uncommon).
