Hi

\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\012
\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.
\015\012\015\012

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.
