This would be better posted under the appliances section as it has nothing to do with home automation.

Somewhere under the sink drain lines there should be a rubber hose from the DW connected to the drain line. If there is a kink in the hose or something crushing it the DW can't drain. Is this a new installation?

Hi dishwasherdread,
- there are different methods for draining on dishwashers. The type and# is necessary to define a problem.
Having said that, there are some common problems, one of which is items caught in the pump intake. other more serious problems can be the impeller broken or the motor only turning one way.

Do it Right - Do it once.
