I just wanted to post my recent experience with our dishwasher not
draining at the end of the cycle. Initially it started with small
amount of water left at the bottom. Few days back there was more water.
After some poking around and web searches, I checked the air gap on the
sink, next to the faucet. The pipe end inside was completely clogged
with some lint like stuff. After I removed the clog, the dishwater
started draining properly. Cleaning up the air gap was was simple. I
pulled out the cover and then unscrewed the base.
Hopefully this will help others with similar problem.
When I had this problem it wasn't the air gap. There was some hard food
matter that had gotten stuck in the drain outlet. I had to disconnect
the drain hose and take off the drain outlet (located at the front of
the dishwasher on the bottom, right behind the cover plate at the
bottom). The clog was very small, but enough to cause the dishwasher
not to drain.
