Hi.
The filter basket in the bottom could be blocked, but it is more likely the outlet hose having become full of foul smelling gunge.

You could try filling the machine with very hot water and plenty of dishwashing detergent, running it without dishes for ten minutes and then pumping it out to get plenty of hot detergenty into the drain pipe.

If you want to be economical you could aim the drain pipe into a bucket on a chair to catch the emerging water and go through the process a few times to try to clean out the pipe without wasting water or detergent or energy.

The contents of the bucket after the first run will give you an idea if you are on the right track.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.
Cheers, D

    hi I have the same problem are you aware of where on the dial you need to set it to pump out?

  • Richard Raynor Apr 07, 2014

    If your dial doesn't have a "pump out" position you could just leave it running as a "service wash" and repeat as necessary until the machine is clear.

Most Dishwasher have a flote switch for the water level. You need to check it as well as the water inlet water valve.

At the end of the wash cycle my JennAir dishwasher has water left in the bottom of the machine.


If the depth of the water is less than one inch deep, there is no odor and the water is clean, your dishwasher is operating normally.

Almost all dishwashers keep some residual water to lubricate the pump gaskets, etc.

Water stays in the bottom of dishwasher after cylcling


If the water is clean and only about an inch deep or less, this is normal and almost every dishwasher keeps some water in the bottom to prevent the seals / gaskets from drying out.

If the water is not clean and there is an odor, please report back here and we can take the next step. Is so, please note approximately how full of left over water the dishwasher is. OK?

Water in bottom after cycle is this normal


It would be helpful to know the manufacturer and model of the dishwasher and approximately how many years old it is. Also, how many inches deep is the water?

But generally, if the water is clear and there is no odor (and it isn't more than (approximately) one inch of water, that is normal.

Dishwashers use that water to keep the rubber parts from drying out and to lubricate/prime the pump at the base of the dishwasher.


Please post back with what you find, OK?

Hotpoint Superplus 7822 dishwasher


At the beginning of the cycle the dishwasher is attempting to pump out any residue water in the waste pipe and sump. It could be that the motor is sticking but you would probably also suffer from it not draining properly.
It may just be noisy pump. I have a similar model and it is also quite noisy but nothing extraordinary.
When the dishwasher is pumping out at the end of the washing cycle it may be quieter when there is water in the pump/pipes but then gets noisy as it 'pumps air'.

Dishwasher leak


must need a new air tube or worse still the air chamber has a split in it
clean machine out in w/shop and with sides off check out with a light to see where the leak is realy comming from it may be leaking from the top wash feed pipe leaking around pipe to tub
these do fracture there and water running down to base
if so replace feed pipe

Hotpoint fdw20p dishwasher


You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me
