Dishwashers are a useful part of any modern kitchen. Unfortunately, they’re not impervious to issues. One of the most common problems that occur with these appliances is water failing to drain. When this occurs, water pools at the bottom of the dishwasher and can lead to smells and further issues if not resolved.
Newer dishwasher models automatically stop the cleaning cycle to prevent leaking. Some even display a code to give owners a better understanding of the issue. Before you go out and call a repairman, try these steps to solve the problem yourself. Most drainage issues are easy to spot and fix in just a matter of minutes.
