Miele diamond dishwasher - standing water?

dani2013April 14, 2013

When I remove the drain thingy at the bottom of my dishwasher to clean out all the food scraps and guck I notice there is water in the drain area. Is this normal?
Apologies for the lack of technical language!

Surely. No dishwasher can drain 100% of the water. A small residual amount in the pump sump/filter area is normal.

it's normal, it's called a sump.
