    I run the dishwasher and at the end of the wash there is standing water in the bottom of it.

    We have the same problem. Trying to find something that we can unscrew so that we can get at what must be the stuff that's blocking the water from draining. Can't figure it out.

So it sounds to me like it is your "pump" I work for an appliance parts dealer and it looks to me like the pump you need is originally part# 99002750 but then it changes to #6-917641....It runs about $57.00 and you can find this product at www.allbrandonline.com
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: ge dishwasher

If your GE dishwasher is between 5-10 years old, you may try replacing the check valve piston & nut assy (about $14). It's located on the inside in the rear of the dishwasher behind a screen which is fastened by about 4 screws. Once the screen is off, you can easily unscrew the check valve assy by hand ... install the new check valve assy ... reinstall the screen with the 4 screws ... and save yourself $400 for a new dishwasher.

Apparently, the rubber cone in the check valve assy deteriorates over time and prevents the pump from fully draining all the water from the bottom of the d/w at the end of a cycle.

GOOD LUCK!!

Ge quietpower 3 wont turn on


HI. check the following areas for faults.

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 or Control Board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water


Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.

I have a GE PDW 8200 Dishwasher and there is standing water in the bottom of the tube. Why is there standing water after a complete cycle?


If it is older, the pump may not be draining the machine completely. The impellers, which is what acually moves the water could be clogged with yuck and could be cleaned if you can take the machine apart. If you call the repairman, he will likely replace the pump and motor.

QuietPower 3, water seeps into unit,fills the base once per week.


I need more info but I would check the drain connection under the sink to make sure that it goes up after leaving drain , to keep the sink from draining into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher----GE Nautilus


1. Check drain pipe, air gap and drain for blockage.

2. Could be too much dishwasher liquid build up (i.e. too much Cascade used over time, clogging things inside the machine). Remove all standing water first then boil a big pot of water (3 to 4 quarts) and carefully pour in to bottom of dishwasher. Let stand until cool. Attempt to drain.

3. Turn off Circuit Breaker to dishwasher. Open kick plate at bottom and look around for the cooling fan for the motor and spin it free in both directions. Look for any solenoids and push them in to the other position. Attempt to drain on dishwasher.

4. If the above steps don't fix it and you are not handy, it's time to call in the repairman or consider getting a new one. If you are handy, do a web search on more detailed solutions for your model of dishwasher (typical failure points are valves, impellers, pump etc).
