Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many 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.


Timer Timers 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.

When the cycle finishes, there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher this begins to smell


there is some kind of clog in the drain system. clean the screen in the dishwasher, there gets a build up of food, or misc stuff in there. it is probably draining, but slowly.
the dishwasher usually has a pump that pumps the water out with force, but if clogged it will be slowed down and when the cycle stops there will be water left in bottom

hope this helps

There is water on the bottom after a full cycle.


Water at the bottom of your dishwasher after a wash cycle indicates a drain issue. Please check out my quick tip on how to fix this issue.

Hi, my dishwasher stopped heating the water so we have a replacement element fitted but the problem still persists, what could be the problem?


If the dishwasher completes the cycle but does not heat the water then it is likely the thermostat is the problem. (since you say you have fixed the heater).

If cycle is not completed and water remains at the bottom and the water is not heating then the controller may have had it.

If you can provide the full model no. of the kenmore dishwasher then I can help locate the parts and their location. Should be something like 665.17459 etc.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Otherwise post a comment will additional details and I will try to help you.

My whirlpool dishwasher just stopped working the middle of the cycle with water still in the bottom and now nothing lights up or comes on and the water is just sitting in the bottom. Any suggestions?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers 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 and required to be replaced. Many 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 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. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Water leaks into bottom tray when filling


dear batties,
Such water filling problems can be generally solved by checking the following
  • Inspect the seals for the main tub, float, heating element and blower diffuser
  • Check for overfilling
  • Inspect the water and drain hoses
  • Inspect the door gaskets
  • Check the water inlet valve
  • Check the pump
Also for the mid cycle problems check the following
hope u find this useful. thank you for using fixya.have a great day.

Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle


You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

Another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!


When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.
