Re: Water accumulation in Dishwasher
If there is not an air gap (a little dome on or near the sink with a hole in the side), make sure the drain hose from the dishwasher is looped as high as possible. Fasten the hose to the underside of the counter or to the wall up against the counter.
If this does not solve the problem, then consider installing an air gap. It prevents siphoning back into the dishwasher.
If there is already an air gap, make sure the dishwasher connects into the smaller port, and the larger port goes to the drain. Remove the cover from the air gap, pull out the plastic insert on the top, and make sure that there is no gunk blocking it.
