I regularly clean my stainless steel and mesh dishwasher filters.  They’re maintained well as well as the rest of the unit. I treat it with white vinegar and commercial dishwasher cleaners every three months or so.  But there is a nagging problem- there is a pool of water under the mesh filter.  I’ve tried soaking it up with a rag, I’ve felt around to see if something is stuck, and anything else I can think of.  

Only recently has my dishwasher seemed to not be cleaning the dishes as well, and I wonder if the issues are related.  

Has anyone else had this issue?  Is it normal?  If not, is there a solution?

    Kobiejo, Water under the mesh filter would be normal. When starting a cycle, the dishwasher will drain for a few seconds to remove all excess water prior to starting. What is the model number to the dishwasher?

    Did this resolve your problem? Let everyone know by selecting "Helpful"!

    Thank you.  The model I have is LDF7774ST

    I ran a Cancel & Drain cycle and it does appear to leave clean water after cycling.
