After I run the dishwasher there is an inch of dirty water left in the bottom of the tub.

I'm not sure where the "drain screen" is or what could be blocked to prevent the water from draining.

thanks anyone.

Hi,

Neither would we...no model# posted...Kenmore is made by several different companies.

It appears to be a Kenmore 587.

It's quite an old one.

587.??????? is part of a model#.

587. is a D&M built Kenmore. The motor runs in one direction to wash and the motor stops and runs in the other direction to drain.

Dishwasher will not drain:

[*]Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose.
[*]Check pump impeller for damage
[*]Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out
[*]Check timer
[*]If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.
*Most* of this style didn't have a screen or such to check.

Something Linked here may help.
