Question about Dishwashers
Hi this sounds like either bad drain pump or the pump is clogged, does it make any noise when your trying to drain it? If it does its probably clogged if not its either bad or its not getting any power to the drain pump, the former being more likely, the pump is located on the side of the main sump assembly underneath the dishwasher.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

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. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it
is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution
if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
