Dishwasher Doesn't Drain? Common Cycle Problems | AJ Perri NJ Plumbing Skip to content

Why Doesn’t My Dishwasher Completely Drain At the End of the Cycle?

Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit at the end of each cycle in order to keep the heating element (for drying the dishes) from burning up. However, if a lot of water stays in the bottom you probably have a clogged drain. If you are experiencing this situation call your plumber.
