Check for obstructions in the drain hose and where the drain hose drains under the sink. Check the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher. There is a filter there that can get clogged.

Runs full cycle but not draining


Your drain pump or drain line is most likely blocked. When you press "cancel/drain", listen for the humming of the drain pump--it can be hard to hear, especially on the newer "super quiet" models. If the motor is humming, 120v is getting to it and that means the main board is functioning. If you don't hear anything, you'll have to check at the drain motor for broken wires, or, using a meter on a low resistance setting(POWER TURNED OFF, WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR DISCONNECTED FROM PUMP, check across the coil of the motor for an open(break) in the coil which means the drain motor will have to be replaced. Also, CHECK THE FILTER FOR CLOGS! Dishwashers are notorious for getting broken glass, food pieces, etc stuck in the drain pumps or drain hoses leading to the sink or disposal. On certain makes/models, there is a "drain break" clipped to the side of the dishwasher(to prevent backwash of dirty water back into the tub) that can get clogged or have a nasty mold/mildew build-up which can clog it.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

Fills, doesn't pump to sprayer, drains on drain only cycle


Sounds like there is still something in the pump. I am 99% certain this unit has a reversable motor.

Kenmore dishwasher not draining when finished full cleaning cycle


sounds like a cycle timer problem. Look for a loose wire on the cycle timer. If yours is a digital timer, it is a board issue. Sorry.
