GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

Whirlpool dishwasher: Model DU920PWKT0; 8 years old Lately, have noticed not full drainage of water at end of cycle... about 1 inch standing (thus 2 inches at the sump). Glasses have had noticeable film on them. Ran the rinse cycle a number of times to explore problem. When I interrupted the cycle, the water on the bottom was soapy, yet no new soap had been introduced. I even colored the water "left" in the tub to see if it was replaced by fresher water. Although it was going through t

Brand new dishwasher, installed last week. When it is done there is quite a lot of water standing in the bottom of the tub. It has only been run 2 times since installed and both times several inches of water were left standing. Is this something we could check or do I need to have the installer come back, which will probably take a week at least. Oh-KitchenAid #KUDC031VWH

The top drawer on our dishdrawers makes a clicking kind of noise for about the first 2 - 5 mins of being on. Then goes fine with the occassional clicking noise during the cycle. It is slightly noisier than the bottom drawer. When the cycle is finished there is a couple of inches of water left in the bottom, so the dishes don't dry properly. The bottom drawer works really well with no problems at all. What do you suggest?

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem? All the dishes were clean. Should I run it through another wash cycle? I've got water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher.


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and block ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel front- with buttons on the inside top( same as display, and the washing cycle won't start. Water seems to be running into the washer, as I can hear it, but the cycle never starts. Recently, I had clogged garbage disposer issue that has been resolved. The dish washer drains into the disposer, and I had free standing water left behind in the washer for 2days during this time.. Could this be the issue? Can you help me figure out this problem? Thanks!!

Model#lds5811bb--started making noise coming from the water inlet area(bottom left). 3/4's of the way through the cycle, noise became louder and then an error code "le" came on. We tried turning breaker off, then we tried in the rinse only cycle, but 5 minutes into it the "le" code error came on again. I'm fairly handy, so I'm not sure what part I can replace to maybe solve the problem. I can't afford to spend a couple of hundred dollars for a repair man to fix it. I'll appreciate any suggestion


The LE code is a locked motor code. Something may have gotten into the pump impeller. I would take the screens and filters off and clean the and check the pump for something stuck in it. It could also be the motor going bad but I would check the obvi ... LG Dishwashers

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash away, but not the soap that comes out once the trap door pops for the main wash. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be causing the problem?


Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking. ... GE 25 in. Nautilus GSC3400J Free-standing Dishwasher

My dishwasher won't drain. It runs through the whole wash and dry cycle...and when I open it to unload the dishes the bottom is filled with standing water. None of the lines that I can see appear to be kinked, and I'm not sure what else to check. I inistalled the dishwasher myself becasue my husband was working out of town...this was about a year ago. Haven't had any problems with it until now. Thanks for any help or suggestions you're able to offer. Christine Fitzpatrick


If you hear the drain pump run after wash and rinse cycles then it is likely the problem is in the kitchen drain end. Have you got a disposal unit in the kitchen sink. Sometime it is full and causing a block.\015\012\015\012If you don't h ... Dishwashers
