You should buy a dishwasher salt (don't put in cooking salt !!!!!) The dishwasher salt is a particular grade of crystalline sodium chloride intended for use in dishwashers.

If you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump. Good luck to you.

I had the exact same problem. When the service tech came to look, my husband watched him. There was a disconnected wire to the motherboard which my husband asked can't the tech just reconnect it. The tech stated no, we needed a new motherboard. My husband reconnected the wire using tape for now & the dishwasher is working perfect. My husband is going to get somekind of calk/glue that will work permanently. This should save us from replacing the motherboard for a while. The dishwasher is only about 5 years old! My previous dishwasher was over 20 years old with no repair problems the over 10 years that I owned & used it.
I am looking for the self check test, does anyone know where I can find the instructions how to do it myself? Thank you

This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
