I know your looking for an easy button on this but unfortunately these machines are just poor machines, the wash pumps are not strong and get weaker as the years go by. is there water left in the tub when its done draining?

No, once all the dishwasher has gone through all its cycles there is no water left in the tub.
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
well then thats good, the only thing you can do is to take the sump assembly apart and clean it real good, this is a pain though. is this leaving particles on you dishes?
