Re: we have a SR 24 H and water sits on the bottom it
Sounds like your drain valve needs replacing. The drain valve is located just inside the front lower service panel. You can also locate it by following your drain hose back to it. The part is often white with a red solenoid on it. You can check the valve by putting a volt meter on the two leads going to this part and checking for power when the machine is in drain mode. If the valve gets power and still doesn't drain then it need replacing.

You already mentioned the reason for the excess water. When the freezer automatically defrosts itself once every 24 hours the melted water drains down through a tube down to a water pan at the bottom of the refrigerator where it sits and supposedly evaporated by the fan back into the atmosphere. However in your case the excessive dust is preventing the evaporation phase to occur by the fan. You need to vacuum as much of the dust as possible and your problem will disappear.
If water does not drain at all then the drain pump could be blocked. If only a little water is remaining but cycle is complete, then this is normal. However, do check the kitchen drain is clear and you do not have a garbage disposer (insinkerator) in sink which is full. Normally empty it before you start the dishwasher. Do you get any alarms (lights flashing etc)
I know this may sound very silly but i had the same problem with mine and all i had to do was pull it out a bit as the drainage pipe at the back was only slightly sqashed against the cupboard but it does matter
Check the entire length of the drain hose from the washer bottom to the connection at the sink drain for kinks--you may need to pull the machine out of the cabinet part way to check. Make sure the hose passes over a point higher than the drain connection at the sink. If you have access to a wet/dry shop vacuum, remove the sink end and **** the water out. If nothing comes out, then there is an obstruction somewhere. Use the vacuum to **** the drain opening inside the washer.
It is possible the check valve is sticking causing sour water to come back into the washer. The check valve is located where the drain line connects to the back of the dishwasher. Also make sure the drain line is higher than where the line connects to the drain under the sink. Most washing machines have a loop built into the line but it helps it to drain better when the line is higher. Try hooking the line to the top of the cabinet under the sink if possible.
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
disconnect it from you drain and put it into a bucket. Then start a program and then cancel it, the begining should start with a drain anyway. Then you will see if any water comes out. You can also take a shop vac after to get the water out to see if there is any stuck there.
