When are you noticing water in the dishwasher?

There are different reasons why you may notice water in your dishwasher. Determining when the water is remaining in the dishwasher is important to identifying what the issue is. If you notice water in the dishwasher immediately after the cycle is completed, select "at the end of the cycle" above. If you have emptied your dishwasher and now there is water in the tub, select "sometime later after the cycle has completed" above.

Is there standing water in the filter area?

It is normal for there to be a small amount of standing water in the dishwasher filter area. You may notice this water when your remove your dishwasher filters for regular cleaning. The water is there to keep the seals in that area from drying up. This small amount of water is drained when you start your next cycle and is replaced with fresh water. 

The picture below shows the normal amount of standing water in the dishwasher filter/sump area.
