Hi there customer, my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your question. Please keep in mind phone requests are often computer generated and not from me, if you do not want phone service simply ignore the request. With that being said let me see if I can find the dimensions for you.

Here are the normal and recessed positions of your dishwasher

You should be able to replace it with any dishwasher that’s labeled as “full size”
However concerning it not draining, this is often due to a clogged line, pump, trap etc, before you replace it you may want to see if we can fix the drainThere’s a good video about diagnosing drain issues here
