The Dishwasher is Not Working at All
This is most likely a power issue.
1. Check the circuit breaker. If it has been tripped, reset it and hopefully power will resume to your dishwasher.
2. You may have a tripped GFI outlet. This can happen if you’ve had an electrical surge or power outage. If this is the case there should be a small button popped out on the outlet. Push that button in and it will reset it. NOTE: It may not be the closest outlet to the dishwasher. When a GFI outlet is tripped, all outlets connected that GFI will stop working.
Water Remaining in Bottom of the Dishwasher after a Full Cycle
1. Remove the lower basket and check what looks like an upside down strainer in the bottom of your dishwasher for food particles and anything that may be clogging it. You can remove the filter basket by removing the screws holding it in place or by twisting and pulling the assembly upwards.
2. Clear any particles that are in there as well as any build up of grease or soap.
3. Resecure the filter.
4. If that does not resolve the issue, check the plastic tube that runs from your dishwasher into your drain line and make sure that line is clear.
5. Check to make sure the soap you are using is not old. Old soap creates suds that will not drain out. When suds dissipate they turn into water.
You See a Trickle of Water Coming from the Bottom of the Dishwasher
1. This usually means there is a stuck float cup switch. Remove the screw on the back of the float cup.
2. Lift the float cup off and clean off any soap residue build up that you find.
3. Resecure the float cup switch.
4. Check to make sure the soap you are using is not old. Old soap creates suds that can lead to what looks like a leak out of the corners of the door.
