I dont understand the statement," you will have to add water manually until the water is gone" Add water to what and why?
I have been hand dipping all the water out and then running it. It will run its cyle and fill with water but not drain. Are you saying that when the dishwasher is ready to run correctly then the pum will come on and drain the water out if I add a gallon to the dry dishwasher ?
ok, why do you have to do it this way. Is the drain cyle out of sink? Why wouldnt it it just run like normal without adding the gallon of water? Shouldnt it just fill like usual ?
I am hoping I have it fixed.I tipped the dw and drained the water in the pan then I ran a cycle without adding the water but when it was finished it had water in the bottom. Before I tipped the dw It woudnt run again unless I had dipped all the water out. This time I turned it off an on again and shut the door and it is running even though it was full of water to start. I hope this is like you are telling me and doing the same as adding the gallon of water, I hope when this cycle ends the dw will be empty of water as it should be. If not, I dont know what else to do. I have done exactly as you told me.
