If you have a fair amount of water in the bottom of most, if not all dishwashers then the problem solution involves one of several things to check.. First off.. is there a drain filter ( at the bottom of your dishwashere where the water gets drawn to the pump) that may be clogged up with waste material from the dishes? If that is clean... then the next thing I would check is for any kinks or clogs in the drain hose leading out to the drain system in your house.. ( many times the drain hose is attached to the side of the sink garbage disposal but it may have a direct attachement to the drain itself ( normally under the sink).. check that for obstructions.. and as a last resort.. if you do not see any kinks in that line.. you can detach it and cycle the dishwasher ( without dishes loaded) and run the dishwasher in a large bucket to see what kind of flow you get.. if you get a fairly good flow.. then you your pumping system is ok but your drain system in your home may be clogged ( improperly vented ) or restrictive to flow.. First things first.. check the drain screen, check the hose ... check the flow into a non restrictive bucket.. If the flow is weak.. then you may have a clogged or damaged pump.. Hope this helps you...

There are two possibilities here. First of all make sure the latch is adjusted to close the door tight. IF not, you can adjust it using a screw driver. next, you may have to replace the gasket as these do wear out.

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor

Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

I have a GE Triton Dishwasher Model #GSD5320D02BB, Serial #FA792902B in muy home which drains into a garbage disposal unit. The water doesn't drain out of the dishwasher after a wash cycle is done. I...

Two things, one of which you probably already have done:
(1) if the drain goes first to a vent or siphon breaker before entering teh sewer, make sure the siphon breaker is clear of debris - easy to do, it is usually on top of the sink
(2) there is a check valve in that allows water to circulate during wash but prevents back-flow during draining. It is accessible by removeing the strainers inside the tube (on the floor toward the back, attached by ~6 screws.) Mine eroded severely and need to be replaced - $5 part.

Water will not drain out of the tub all the way and behind the front door bottom in the insulation seems to be wet. and the cycle seems to take a long time to run...thanks

My dishwasher, Bosch Model No. SHU9922UC/U12, Serial No. 10 0202 80447 01 0040 goes through its wash, rinse and dry cycles but sometimes there is some water remaining on the items in the upper tray and one inch or so of water remaining in the bottom of the tub. Once water leaked out onto my kitchen floor. I found some broken glass and some plastic in the circular trap at the bottom and have removed the detritus.

GE Trition Dishwasher Leak

There should be a screw on the top center where the door latch engages. You can just loosen it with a screwdriver and slide it back and re-tighten. If this doesn't solve the problem, it may be a problem with the water level float assembly. Go to the GE website to look up your model.

You may be getting too much water in the tub. The float assembly signals the system to stop adding more water. If this gets obstructed, the valve will continue to add water. Start a cycle and wait to hear when the water valve closes. Carefully open the door to see how much water is in the tub. It should not be up to the door. If it is clean up the float. Let me know how you made out or if you need more help.

 I know how it is when a dishwasher breaks down. I've had my share of water damage. Not to mention the pain of washing dishes by hand.(We're so spoiled. I'm guilty as well.)

Water Leak at vent area in door...

On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. back.
