What would cause my dishwasher to have standing water in it at the end of a cycle? I have already replaced one dishwasher because my plumber friend said the pump was gone. I now do not think that was the problem. Does anyone know what it could be. Thanks.
If the standing water was there immediately after the new dishwasher was ran the first time I would suspect a restriction in the discharge hose or a clog just past where it connects to the plumbing system. Start by checking the discharge hose for kinks. If there are no kinks provide more information about how it is connected and how it is routed so I can offer more suggestions.
If it develop over a few days or weeks after the install I suspect something is getting into the dishwasher and clogging the screen where the water drains. Remove the lower rack (it should just lift out) and check around the bottom center for junk that my be clogging the screen or grate.
If you have enough standing water in a modern DW that you notice it I think you have a problem. I understand what Yoyizit is saying and a small amount of water is not a problem. Can up post a picture of the standing water for us?
Have you contacted the manufacturer of the DW and described the problem? They could tell you what is normal for that particular machine.
Well it goes like this, your drain hose in connected to your disposal and that I found was the problem with what I have, So what I have done to correct this issue; Is I removed it from the disposal and re connected above the p-trap. if you can see the elevation for the drain is to high attached to the unit. And while you us your disposal, what ever you are disposing it go back into your drain hose that causes a blockage. And after doing so try your dishwasher again, rest to sure the problem is gone. remember to plug the disposal drain for the D/W .so try doing this your self and stop paying the high dollars when the problem as been justified. see ya.
