Why is water in the dishwasher after it runs?

It’s normal to see some water in the bottom of your dishwasher after a wash cycle is completed. If you notice water covering the filter screen, try these tips:

Check that the drainage system is free and clear of debris.

If your dishwasher is hooked up to a garbage disposal, run the disposal to clear the drain system.

If you have a new garbage disposal, the ”knock-out” plug might need to be removed from the disposal. (This step can occasionally be overlooked during installation.)

For additional help, refer to your Owner’s Manual.
