Are you sure your drain system is not clogged or restricting water flow ? When you say youtook off the hose off under the sink and it seemed to be lots of water running on the rise cycle .. that suggests that you may have a restriction after the drain hose in your house drain system. ...

Some other considerations..

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance.

  • Some water, usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. However, if water is covering the bottom of the tub, the dishwasher is not draining properly.

  • Check for paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub.

  • Make sure that the right type and amount of detergent is used: Using the wrong type or too much detergent can cause sudsing that can prevent the dishwasher from draining. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used
Hope this helps you...

Hello,
After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone??
If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.

Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher,
Gene

Fills arbitrarily not holding any water after a full cycle. All seems well and on any given day it will have filled without warning and floods floor


Check your drain hose to where it connects under the sink. If it is connected to the garbage disposer, and not looped upwards before it runs back to the dishwasher, it may just be drain water from the sink running back to the dishwasher. Even if it hooks up to a "t" spout under the sink, and the drains run a little slow, water can still run back to the dishwasher. The ideal set up is to have it connect to the drainage, run up behind the bowls of the sink, and then back to the dishwasher.
If this is not the answer, then you may have a defective fill valve that is allowing water to seep into the machine (very unusual in dishwashers). Also note that water valves require 23 psi of pressure to seat closed and if the incoming pressure is less than that, even a new valve may have the same issue.
Good luck and let me know how you make out, and if you have any other questions.

Yes water does stay in the sump all the time. This is normal.

Try running a cycle with a cup of Vinegar or Baking Soda in the dishwasher.

Also check to make sure that your drain line (under the sink) is higher than the sink drain and not allowing some sink drain seepage back into the dishwasher.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

There is water left in the dishwasher and the smell comes up through the drain


Look under the sink where the dishwasher drain line connects to the waste pipe outlet. The dishwasher connecting hose should be supported higher than the outlet connection. If the dw drain hose is too low the sink drain water is backing into the dishwasher.

Water does not drain from GE dishwasher.


Remove the drain hose from under the sink to verify that there is no clog. If the dishwasher runs in the "cleaning" cycle, but won't drain, you either have a clog or a bad solenoid. All the solenoid does is opens a little door to change from cleaning cycle to drain cycle. This part is VERY EASY to change. Definitely a project for DIY. The part runs around $60 from a parts place. Check ebay if you do not need it immediately and you can save abt $30.

Water is not draining from bottom of dishwasher any suggetions?


Hi,

IF I got the issue correct the water is not draining from your dishwasher. I would request you to verify few things as mentioned bellow.

Verify that there is not a clog in the drain hose or air gap. This is typically the reason that a dishwasher won't drain and the clog is usually where the drain hose attaches to the garbage disposal or sink drain pipe. Remove the hose and clear any clogs, then reinstall.

Verify that water from the sink drain is not making it's way into the dishwasher. I would recommend creating a high loop in the dishwasher drain pipe, which is attached to the sink drain, under the sink. The high loop can be fastened to underneath the countertop. This will prevent any water from entering the dishwasher from the sink; it also prevents the dishwasher drain water from making it's way back into the dishwasher.

Let us know if you need some more information.

God Bless.

My GE. quiet quiet power plus won't drain


This is normally a pump issue. check the following to combat this further..


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

My GE quiet power plus will not completely drain at the end of the cycle.


I took the drain hose off and found that the check valve (washer/rubber flaper) was bad.This part keeps the drain water from running back into the dishwasher after the pump shuts off.Called my local parts suppy and you can not by just the check valve, you have to get the entire assembly at over 40.00. Thanks G.E. great design.

Water still in the bottom of the dishwasher


If there is no air gap (silver cap) located on your sink next to your faucet, you could have a clog in the drain line or at the drain port at the motor/pump assembly. Also, check to see if the drain hose (under sink) has a loop in it before it goes to the disposal or pipe. If there is no loop, water could be backing up into the tub.
