MY AMANA DISHWASHER WON'T DRAIN AT THE END OF THE CYCLE.

Customer Question

MY AMANA DISHWASHER WON'T DRAIN AT THE END OF THE CYCLE. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN VERIFIED: THE PUMP WORKS, THERE'S NO CLOGING ANYWHERE ON THE LINE, ALL THE OTHER CYCLES WORK PERFECTLY. I TOOK ALL THE INSIDE PARTS APART, CLEAN THEM AND PUT THEM BACK TOGETHER, THERE WAS NO PROBLEM THERE. 1) IS THERE A RESET BUTTON INSIDE THE ELECTRONIC PORTION OF THE DOOR? 2) IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I SHOULD CHECK? THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE. PAUL B.

Hi, this model does not have a reset. The aux drain motors are known for overheating and shutting off before all the water is out. Also make sure the hose under the sink is creating an air gap so water does not run back into the dishwasher. Not sure if this model has a back flow preventer on it. I would need the model number from the sticker around the door jamb to tell for sure.
