Dishwasher not draining water fully

I have a rarely used dishwasher MAYTAG "PERFORMA" Model PDB3600AWE, when I do a load at the end when it finishes I end up with the bottom of the washer full of water - about 4" deep or so.

Any idea what could cause it? A bad pump or something clogging up the discharge line or something else?

Does the unit drain during operation ? Usually you can hear it drain in the sink.
Does your machine have a manual drain button ? Does that work ?

A plugged or partially clogged drain line is a common problem.
Also make sure your discharge line is fastened up high under the counter to form a loop.
