It washes dishes OK, but at the end of the cycle it does not completely pump out. And then I usually just keep resetting the machine until it does completely pump out.

You have a partial restriction in the drain. Start with the easiest first . If the drain goes to a garbage disposer - right at the disposer connector is a common place for a clog. See if you can stick a screwdriver in that hole. Next check the drain hose for a clog and finally at the drain pump of the dishwasher which requires pulling the dishwasher out to gain access there.
