I have a pool of water left on the bottom of my dishwasher. During the last cycle, water came up through my garbage disposal into the sink. It drained out of the sink and I ran the garbage disposal, but water is still pooled at the bottom of the diswasher. Is this a clog? How and where do unclog it? Any advice would be appreciated and would save this hard working teacher some money. :)

Re: dishwasher did not drain all the water
Your sink drain is clogged and the back pressure is not allowing the dishwasher to drain competely. Do not use a liquide drain cleaner, it will damage your disposal. take apart p-trap hopefully the clog is there, otherwise the line will need to be snaked.

Possible that the drain pump /drain valve is not working . it can be struck or it could have failed. Best is to check the voltage during the program . If voltage is present then pump is faulty but if voltage is not present then the controller board is not working ,possible failure in the board.

Well first of all you can check the Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need replace it. After then you can check the Drain valve, that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged. Please post comments if you need more help or information..............
is there any way to run the cycle from the beginning and listen to hear if the machine is draining at all when the cycle starts do you hear the water spraying on the inside ? if not then you have several different possibilities....clogged drain line, pump impeller broken(sounds like running but no action), water just flowing back to washer the last one's an easy fix just loop the excess drain hose up like a reverse "p" trap on a kitchen sink drain this keeps the water from flowing back to the machine
My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely
First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.
I INSTALLED A NEW GARBAGE DISPOSER AND THEN FOUND THAT THE DISHWASHER WOULD NOT DRAIN. READ THAT THERE WAS A SEAL IN THE NOZZLE OF THE GARBAGE DISPOSER THAT HAS TO BE REMOVED IF IT IS ATTACHED TO A DISHWASHER. I DISCONNECTED THE HOSE,WITHOUT REMOVING THE GARBAGE DISPOSER, PLACED A SCREWDRIVER IN THE HOLE AND HIT IT WITH A HAMMER AND KNOCKED IT OUT. REPLACED THE HOSE AND TIGHTENED THE RING AROUND THE HOSE. TURNED THE DISWASHER TO DRAIN AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY. MY MISTAKE FOR NOT READING THE DIRECTIONS THOROUGHLY. ALL IS WORKING WELL; HOPE THE SAME FOR YOU.
