I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwaher that isnt draining after it has completed the cycle

It will drain if you continue to push the drain button several times.

  1. From the description of the problem it takes more than one drain cycle to drain all the water out. A slow drain is often caused by debris in the sump. This can be cleaned out to fix this problem. A drain impeller that is stripped would drain poorly and this would be an economical repair to make. If you drain hose connects to a disposal then remove the hose and see if the nozzle of the disposal is partially clogged. I hope this helps and good luck.
