My 5 year old slimline dishwasher has completed its cycle

Resolved Question:

My 5 year old slimline dishwasher has completed its cycle but failed to empty. I have removed and cleaned the filters - which needed doing badly! - and scooped all the water out what is the best thing to do next? Customer service suggested setting it on hottest setting and holding it for 10 seconds - they also mentioned it might be the impellor? Many thanks Mrs Schultz
