Dishwasher would not fully drain

After researching for a few minutes on this site I was pretty confident that the problem I was having was a faulty check valve. I removed the 4 screws holding the cover in place at the back of the dishwasher tub, twisted out the check valve and saw it was obviously shot. I ordered the correct part and 2 days later I had the dishwasher working like new. Installation was a simple as could be....twist in the new valve and reinstall the 4 screws.

Water would not drain

Replaced the Piston and Nut Assembly, located inside the dishwasher under the screen at the back, by unscrewing the old one and replacing with the new - Works great now!!

Dishwasher didn't drain

Assistant helped me take apart unit, assumption on issue was correct, part was ordered and showed up 3days later. I installed and all seems fine. I do question what would have happened if the deduction was incorrect. The assistant was very patient and clear with his instructions. A good experience!

Dishwasher had would not drain completely at the end of a washing cycle

First I removed the four screws from the screen/cover located at the back of the dishwasher. You will notice a mesh screen in the center of this cover. The check valve is under this cover midway between the sides. The check valve is unscrewed counter clockwise. I had to use a pair of pliers to start turning the valve. There are two "ears" on the top of the valve. You will see a rubber cone shaped piece that should completely cover the opening when the plunger is depressed. In my case the rubber was almost completely gone allowing water in the drain hose to return to the dishwasher after the drain pump stopped. The new check valve threads back into the opening and should be finger tightened. Replace the cover/screen and you should be good to go.
