Plumbing Question

How do i drain the dishwasher

There was a smell in the flat when we bought it and someone suggested putting caustic soda underneath the strainer. This worked for the smell but now the dishwasher won't drain the water.

Thanks for any suggestions!

use a wet vac to suck it dry and try again or check hose for blockages with a plastic pipe poked down it and wet vac at same time to clear restrictions.
if neither work your pump has failed in dish washer and a new one would ne a good idea! good luck
