\015\012First, be sure you know what type of dishwasher you have (not the brand name but the type - either direct drive or forward reversing).

Depending on the age of your dishwasher, it could be either a direct drive or forward reversing type. We've had both. Direct drive dishwashers simply keep going as the water drains but forward-reversing ones have motors which stop and then start (moving in the opposite direction) to drain water out of the dishwasher. It helps to know what type of machine you have. Obviously, if the motor isn't reversing properly, that could be the cause of a problem right there. But let's hope that is not the case.

Next, think about whether you've installed a garbage disposal recently and if the dishwasher stopped draining right after you installed the disposal.

Many dishwashers won't drain or seem clogged after a garbage disposal is added to the sink area. Happily, this is not only a common problem but one which is usually resolved quickly. You'll simply have to check a piece called the knock-out plug. You can see what that looks like here:www.applianceaid.com/food.html#plug
\015\012
\015\012If that doesn't work, you'll need to check some very specific parts on your dishwasher to try and fix the problem and get it to drain again.

To do this, it helps to find your particular model and get a mental image of each part. It isn't absolutely necessary but does help in picturing your specific model and the parts described in the rest of this article. Here's a good place to do that:www.partselect.com/Locate-Parts.aspx. At this site, you can find your particular brand of washer and each part.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the kitchen floor unless we press the drain button and then it drains completely. The water seems to be coming from the front of the washer, potentially from the door itself. The amount of leakage is barely discernible but will fill over the course of a 24 hour period.
