Maytag dishwasher not draining fully

\015 Maytag dishwasher, model MDB5600AWW. The dishwasher is not emptying fully, leaving dirty water in the bottom at the end of a cycle.If I start and immediately cancel a new cycle, triggering a drain cycle, I can hear the pump click on and the water is mostly removed. Sometimes it seems to take two cancels to really get rid of all the water. The dirty water is never being fully pumped out before the rinse, so my dishes aren't rinsing clean. I checked the drain hose and found no blockage, and I dismantled the interior as far as the filter and chopper blade and found no clogs. Any idea of what the problem might be? Thanks!\015

Answers :

Try cleaning out the air gap.  The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly.  Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter?  There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned.  To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover.\015\012Hope that one of these helps!

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful
