Our 2008 Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher has stopped draining

Resolved Question:

Our 2008 Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher has stopped draining when using regular cycles. It will drain if I use the Cancel/drain button---otherwise it accumulates the water. The filter is clean.

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you can drain the cycle by pressing the cancel/drain button then the drain pump is still working. That means that your control board in the control console is just faulty and will need to be ordered and replaced because it's not sending power down the the drain pump to drain the dishwasher at the end of the cycle.
