I have a dishwasher that seems to drain properly until the final cycle. It goes into dry mode and drains at the same time. It does drain until the timer cuts out, but there is still a considerable amount of water left in the bottom after I open the door to unload the dishwasher. Any suggestions.

Re: dishwasher doesn't drain
Suspect not draining properly all the time. if plumbed into the trap under the sink, then check there is no blockage there. (quite common) . hold drain pump into a bucket so you can see the rate of flow. hold the bucket about 3ft off the floor. if poor flow, then you either have a blockage at the pump or the pump is faulty

To the lady who has water at the bottom of dishwasher. Guess what? It’s supposed to be there. At the end of last rinse cycle the water is at its hottest point. So. Instead of draining this vary hot water it saves it to dry your dishes. Wait about 10 or 15 minutes and water will drain. This is a vary efficient way of drying dishes. It uses no power for drying. Just steam
From the heated water. When it’s all complete the DW will beep 4 or 5 times. After that leave the door down to evaporate moisture. Good luck!!!
Some dishwashers will now wait before draining final rinse water. This helps the dishes dry. Instead of draining the hot water it will save it for a short time to dry dishes. Wait 20 minutes it should drain after that.
this will sound silly but the amount of times this has been the cause will justify the question, if the drain hose is conected to a spout off the sink trap, has the plug at the base of the spout been removed to allow water to drain?
disconect the power then tilt the dishwasher about 45 degrees to the front then back, hold it in each position for about 10 seconds, water will come out so be prepared for that. back to level and try it again,
see this causes and fix it. God bless you If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:Water-heating cycleTimerWater-heating cycleMany dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. TimerTimers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
most likely the dishwasher has a minor leak in the base under the wash sump. this could be tripping the flood switch which causes the pump to run continuously. when the leak dries up you are able to start normally until the leak trips the flood switch once again.
Check for leaky door seal or hose. see edgestar site for instructions on getting to the area under the sump. make sure dishwasher is disconnected from mains when working on it.
Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo
Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

I took the washer apart to find any obvious issues. The motor is functioning, the impeller is free from debris, the solenoid does engage and open flap to redirect water to the drain hose. I believe it drains part way through the wash but doesn't drain in the cycle just before the dry cycle.
Sounds like there is some debri in the drain line ...(usually you can flush it out by removing the lower loading rack and lift up and remove the spray bar ... flush the line with preferably a garden hose.
The drain line-otlet can vary in location. see if yours is under the sink? if it is you can back-flush the drain line from there.
Good luck be safe and stay dry... Joe_Rex
