This machine has been in use only 2-3 months. Motor runs a few seconds after float hits bottom, but remaining water doesn't drain out fast enough, I guess. I've removed and cleaned the filter but after 2-3 cycles thereafter, it still wouldn't drain completely. Is there another float valve somewhere?

The draining during the wash cycle seems normal. Always drains to float stop but no further.

Well, just checked it and it drained completely. It knew I was telling on it. But since I've already written this, what do I look for if it happens again?

Thanks for the help!

Not that I'm aware of Lou.

Do you have a AIR GAP between the dishwasher drain hose and the garbage disposal where the dishwasher drain hose exit connects to?
