Not draining at the end of of the cycle

Dishwasher that is less than two years old does not drain at the end of the cycle. You can press the drain/cancel button and it will drain 50% of the time. I can hear the motor or pump running. We already replaced the control board, that was not the solution. No lines were clogged and the dishwasher does not run through the garbage disposal.

Chosen Solution

Why is it not plumbed via the disposal?

Cause 1

Drain Pump

The drain pump uses an impeller to force water through the drain hose. If the drain pump motor is not working, the dishwasher won’t drain. To determine if the drain pump is defective, check the pump motor for continuity using a multimeter. If the motor does not have continuity, or if is getting power but won’t run, replace the drain pump. Drain pumps are not repairable—if the drain pump is defective, you must replace it.

Cause 2

Drain Impeller

The drain impeller pushes water through the drain hose and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the impeller is broken, replace it.

Cause 3

Drain Solenoid Kit

The drain solenoid opens the drain valve to allow the water to exit the dishwasher. If the drain solenoid fails the valve will not open causing the dishwasher not to drain.
