Sorry! I’m not sure the DW is filling up with water, but the dishes have pooled water on them when the cycle is over.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

ok lets start the dishwasher ,let it run for 3 minutes and slowly open the door and tell me if the bottom sump area has standing water in it?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Sorry, I was at work. No water in the DW after three minutes.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Figured it out. My water wasn’t hot enough and I didn’t have the “hot water” button pressed.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

Ok there is a big difference in no water entering and the water not being hot.

So run it a couple of times and let me know if it is working ok for you or not !
