This dishwasher was here when we moved in, but based on the model number I'm guessing it was new in 2008? The dishwasher will run a full cycle, but won't drain. If I don't bail out the water, it will initiate a cycle, but quickly move to "clean" without draining. If I bail out the water, it will run another full cycle, but won't drain. Here are the fixes I've already tried, with no luck:

1. Cleaned filter
2. Checked entire length of drain hose for blockage. We don't have an air gap. Once I drained the standing water from the hose, no water has traveled through the drain hose when I've run subsequent cycles
3. Replaced drain pump

Any ideas? Is the useful life of this thing really only 11 years (I hope not)?

Hi,

Most are 3-8 years any more.

but won't drain
Is the drain pump getting power when it should be draining?
