    Check your drain under the sink for buildup of food etc. Make sure it is clean and your dishwasher should drain properly.

      I will check the pipe under the sink and hopefully that will fix the problem. Thanks.

    I had my disposal go bad and the dishwasher didn't drain properly since the disposal didn't drain properly. Another time I had a clog way down in my pipes so that my kitchen sink took forever to empty and the dishwasher didn't fully drain. Check to make sure that the disposal is always empty before you run the dishwasher. If you leave food on the dishes and pans you put in the dishwasher, you could have had some food or something lodged in the tubing that is stopping it from draining properly.

      New dishwashers are definitely different creatures. I replaced mine a couple of years ago when we replaced all the appliances in the house. Not sure if I like them, definitely hard to figure out and don't seem to have the choices you used to have. They are even harder to put bowls and smaller things in and not have them fall over. I have a hard time putting as much in their than I used to with the old one.

    the drain hose on your washer is not connected to your garbage disposal. You have to kno’clock out the hole in the garage disposal. It comes plugged up because some people don’t have dishwashers
