We have an almost 10 year old Kenmore dishwasher that is not draining - the water is sitting in the bottom of the basin even after the cycle has supposedly run all the way through - do you know what would cause this?

I see this allot on these. usauly it this. Part 2844this is sticking out of the pump assembly and its the drain check valve. your drain hose that runs to your sink is connected to this , these get clogged, you will need to get the water out of the machine and take the front bottom kick plate off and you should see this on the right front comming off the pump and your drain hose is connected to this . remove the drain hose and this unscrews counter clockwise, check the for clogs and rinse it off in the sink , there is a very small hole the water goes through in drain. hope this helps, thanks Bryan
