Whirlpool gold dishwasher not draining all the way


I have a whirlpool dishwasher model gu1500xtkq0, that is not draining out all the way. Once the cycle is over, there is still a good 2 inches of water left in the bottom. I first thought it was the check valve. Inspected it and it looked fine. So I'm thinking it is the drain pump that has gone out. I have found the pump on line for about $35. How involved is it to replace? Or could it be something else the matter with the washer?

Repair clinic has a link (click on link below) with the 5 most common drain problems for your dishwasher. Click on part replacement video under each problem for more information. Simple fix, pretty straight forward.

As Ben has suggested, could also be the drain hose.

I wouldn't replace the pump until you inspect the drain hose for an obstruction.
