Hello,

\012Everyone\012expects their dishwasher will work correctly. They can become\012nonchalant about it until one day it does not function. Sometimes the\012dishwasher doesn't drain as expected. Most people immediately call the\012plumber when their dishwasher doesn't work. There are several things\012you can try at home before having to pay an expensive service fee.

Your dishwasher will not drain until the end of the cycle. Many\012things may have interrupted the cycle. Check circuit breaker and reset\012it if appropriate. Also check the fuse. It is possible that you could\012have tripped a circuit have way through the cycle. Make sure the door\012is properly closed. Ensure you have chosen a cycle on the dishwasher.\012It is amazing the problems children could accidentally cause, that are\012easy fixes.

We just installed a Fisher & Paykel DD603 dishwasher. Intially it would not drain correctly. And, proceeded to flood the bottom and set off the F1 error code.

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.
