do you have to empty your drywell?

If the dry well works as designed, water will percolate out of it and into the ground on its own. Does it stay for too long? How long? Or does it just not empty on its own at all.
Has it ever worked?

Yes. An awful lot more silt than you realize collects in there and it should be shoveled out regularly. A maximum of every 5-years for any parking area and every 10-years for any yard area, unless you really like digging. My little surface piped drain that has a sediment trap fills with 1 heaping shovel amount every 2-months and needs that constant attention to keep flowing.
