Question about GE Dishwashers
It would have helped if you provided the model no.
Check this GE website for possible causes. If you do not have the user manual then you can also download it from here, But you will need the model number. (should be etched on the body of the dishwasher)

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

Try running it through with just water and no dishes. It should drain then. and if that doesnt work, power it down and restart the dishwasher.
