If the dishwasher is new and hasn't been used, the water is from testing at the factory. Each new dishwasher is tested before being shipped. It is also normal to have a small amount of water around the filter after wash cycle. This keeps the pump seals lubricated. 


If the bottom of the dishwasher is full of water:


  • Check the drain lines for blockages in the garbage disposal and/or sink air gap.
  • Make sure the drain hose is not kinked.
