Frigidare Ultra Quiet III Dishwasher won't drain

\015 I have had my mobile dishwasher for about 3 years now. It recently was having problems draining out all the water that collects in the bottom of the machine. I hook it up to the sink and plug in the power and attempt to run a normal cycle, but when I go back after the cycle is complete there is tons and tons of water in the bottom of the machine still. I have had to manually remove the water, cup by cup in order to remove it all. I used to be able to put it on another cycle and it would drain all the water out, but now it won't even drain during the drain cycle anymore. My B/F is a licensed plumber and he did some investigating into the problem and we found that the motor still runs and kicks on at the right time, but no water comes out of the hose. Please help me fix this problem so I can go back to using to wash dishes, rather than hold the clean ones I had to hand wash.\015\012Thanks,\015\012Bridget\015

To properly drain and clear out any clogs in a dishwasher:\015\0121.Take a wet/dry vacuum, remove the paper air filter (usually just a screw) from the inside of the vacuum body\015\0122. Empty out the vacuum body prior to using it. \015\0123. Then **** out all of the water from the inside basin/tub. \015\0124. Before you turn off the vac, lift the hose high into the air and make sure all of the water is sucked into the vacuum to prevent any water still in the tube from making a mess. \015\0125. Dump that water. This will provide you an opportunity to remove excess water before you get to work. \015\012
\015\012Next, under the sink there you will see your drain, just above your drain you will see a black or transparent tube about 1" in diameter. \015\0126. Unscrew the tube screw. \015\0127. Get your vacuum hose and hold it near the tube. When you take off the tube, there may be, though likely not, some excess water in the tube. **** this up if needed. \015\0128. Put the vac hose onto the tube and make an air tight seal with your hand over the hose and tube. \015\0129. Turn on the vacuum and such out any clogs. \015\01210. Turn on your dish washer and let it run for a minute or two to get water back into the tub. \015\01211. Open the door, there should be about 1-2" of water in the tub. \015\01212. Hit the cancel button and let the water pump out of your tub, be sure to hold the vacuum hose over the tube and **** out all the water with the asistance of your dishwashers pump. \015\01213. Repeat steps 8-12 2-3 times. You should notice water will no longer remain in the tube when you fill it up, & press the cancel button because the machine will pump everything out for you. Once you have done this and the water pumps out without a problem you have fixed your clog. \015\012
\015\01214. Reattach the tube to the drain using the tube screw.\015\01215. Dump the water from the vacuum down the drain.\015\01217. Clean up and put your vacuum away.\015\01216. Put the $95 into your savings account because you likely just fixed your clog in under 45 min. from start to finish. \015\012
\015\012I hope this helps!
Try cleaning the filters in the basin of the dishwasher. there are two of them a larger one with larger holes and a fine mesh one in the center.
