First if you have a disposal, make sure that it is working since many dishwashers
are connected to the disposal and will not drain if it is not working.
Second, with power off to unit at the breaker box take off lower cover and check
the triangle shaped plastic arm that is connected to the shiny rod
It is the drain valve. If It does not move freely or you see black stuff on
the metal shaft then the drain solenoid has failed.

Remove the plug and "C" shaped clip and the two phillips head screws and slide
it toward you to remove. The plastic arm is under spring tension so you
may want to remove the spring first. Reverse procedure to assemble.
This should cover most models of GE/Kenmore/ Hotpoint.
Hope this helps.

My dishwsher will not drain always tried a bit of CLR then it would drain for a little bit.

If the machine has an drain pump..remove it and check the impeller..can be broken if is a plastic made.
If the machine does not have a drain pump...the drain solenoid is bloked on close and the water is not draining.
You can check also the drain hose to see if is stoked somewhere.

Good luck

HI i have an electrolux dishlex dishwsher that is brand new and just installed. Ive used it a few times an dhave noticed that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher, thats not draining, I thin

there is always a little water in all dishwashers. Sounds like to me that you may have a kinked drain hose or maybe the way you have hooked the drain up. The drain hose should go to a vacuum break that is mounted on the sink flange and then another hose goes to the disposal. If you have the hose hooked directly to the disposal you may be getting water back from the sink to the dw. raise the hose up as high as possible and attach under the sink so there is a high loop in your hose so water cannot drain back from the sink

Pump won't stop draining

you will almost certainly have a build up of water in the base. remove the water and retry. check to see if limit switch is not sticking or has possibly gone faulty.failing this, your board is faulty.
