Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Two drawer dish washer ... Both drawers drain fine when operated individually but the top drawer will not drain fully if the bottom drawer is operated at the same time (bottom drawer drains fine in these conditions). I am guessing that this is a setting issue rather than a clog, but what is the mechanism that is tripped when both drawers are cleaning? Perhaps a mother board issue?

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDR24SEBLO does not drain 100%. I have removed the drain hose and chcked the sink P-Trap, [it drains thru the garbage disposer]. Unit is 10 years old, otherwise works fine. I am having difficulty removing the impeller and items above the pump to see if it is clogged. Do you think I have a partially clogged pump or a timer issue that prevents the pump from completely emptying the bottom of the dishwasher? We have run the dishwasher 20-30 times since observing the problem.

Dishwasher works fine except that after the drying cycle, water slowly builds up in the bottom of the dishwasher. It did this a few years ago for several months, but then it stopped doing it altogether. I did nothing to fix it. Now it's started doing it again. I run the dial around to a point where it drains, let the water drain and then turn it back to off before the drying cycle begins.
