Whirlpool dishwasher not draining


So I just installed a Whirlpool dishwasher, WDF510PAYS. Easy enough, what could go wrong, right?

Well, it doesn't drain all the way, I mean the water is to the bottom of the door. I followed the instructions. The drain goes directly out, not thru the disposal, and I looped the drain up high in the cabinet. Same as the unit before.

Any ideas on what to check first? It does drain most of the water, and otherwise seems fine.

new dishwasher I assume? Did you extend the drain line any? Where the drain line hooks to your plumbing, did you check to see if it may be partially plugged. If it isn't something like that you may need warranty service.

Thanks hardwareman. It is indeed new, it appears to drain for a little, then stops. Maybe drains during one cycle and not a later one? Anyway, the drain is the same as the one it replaced. I went ahead and scheduled a call for Monday, was hoping to solve before then, it it will be fine.
