Hi
\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or\015\012not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually,\015\012these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if\015\012connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump &\015\012filter.
\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a\015\012finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water\015\012in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you\015\012suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your\015\012dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that\015\012the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly,\015\012or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.

\015\012\015\012First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and\015\012the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the\015\012air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the\015\012knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and\015\012knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the\015\012drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of\015\012course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line.\015\012Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and\015\012the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain\015\012pump of the dishwasher.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model # 66513449K900 that will not stop running. I think it is stuck on the drain cycle.

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.
