Hope this doesn't get confusing! We had a problem with our kitchen sink draining, slow at first then completely stopped. We tried everything, ultimately had to cut out 25 ft. of drain line in the basement and replace it! the whole run was completely clogged! At some point, while using a plunger on the sink, without realizing it, water backed up into the dishwasher. It was about a half bucket full. I got all the drain pipe replaced, we ran the dishwasher, thinking it was ok. Well, it drains all the water out but that half a bucket full! It ran fine before with no water left in the bottom. My wife seems to think the drain hose is clooge, but I say if it was clogged the water wouldn't drain at all. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
