You posted under a model GLD5860LSS, so it that is correct fine, if not, this may be slightly off.
First, and easiest, is to disconnect the drain hose at the very end where it connects to the drain or disposer and make sure there is not a blockage there. That is one of the more restricted areas (size wise) in the drain system, and a nut shell or seed or other item can lodge there and obstruct water flow out the drain hose. Second, would be to remove the plastic rectangular raised grate just behind and to the right of the lower wash arm. Look for obstructions there, like wire ties, candy wrappers, and other items. It may be easier to **** the water out with a turkey baster so when you stick your head in the dishwasher you'll be able to see back there.

GE Triton dishwasher occasionally won't drain all the water..still in bottom of dishwasher or leaks into floor. Not every time!

make sure that a portion of the drain hose was hung higher than the connection to the garbage disposal. hose should not have kinks or twists. if that doesn't work, clean (no clog) or replace drain hose.

GE Triton 24


Please note that dishwashers don’t drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn’t overheat.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you’ll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Please post back for any further assistance.

GE Triton dishwasher will not drain and after cycle.

Look at the timer to see if the contacts have finally worn off. The circuit board may have failed too.

Ge Triton dishwasher will not drain and makes a funny noise.

Yes!! The crackling noise you hear is small pieces of food stuck spinning around the moter drain....All you have to do is find the drain hose (some are located under the sink of the kitchen) disconnect it from the draining source (not the back of the dishwasher) now run a long thin wire through the drain hose line poke around and pull in and out!! it may take a few tries but its better then a large Bill!! replace hose and hit drain button!!
