Hello,

My dishwasher won't drain completely. I can see water coming through the drain tube to the disposal but it doesn't seem to be able to drain fast enough before the pump stops. I've cleaned the tub out of all food I can see but I'm not sure where else I can check for clogs. Thanks for any help.

Fixed the problem, there is a filter in the back of the tub that has a grated cap over it. I emptied the tub of water, removed the filter cap and cleaned it, cleaned out the tub under the cap and put it all back together. It's working now.

I found out that a toothpick got wedged in one of the 2 pumps underneath the dishwasher not allowing it to remove any water. I took about 15 minutes to remove the pumps and find the toothpick in the smaller of the two. If I can take them apart anybody can. I found this service paper underneath the dishwasher that had diagnostic information on how to test the pumps. Sure enough, one worked and one didn't. I hope this helps somebody else.
