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.

I have a GE Triton XL Eterna Series dishwasher that is not draining. Can you help me diagnose the problem? Some people have told me that it is the pump, while others say it is the motor or drain hose.


Have you checked to see if there are food particles that might be obstructing the drain? Check the bottom center of the unit, there should be a filter, it might be clogged.

GE Triton 24


Hi

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 won't drain


Well, I haven't heard from anyone from this site yet, but I did talk to Mike Anderson of Anderson Appliance Repair in Clinton, Ten. He told me how to test the solenoid (should read 40 ohms at 1X on a multi tester). Check that the float at the bottom left corner is working and finally test the wires going into the motor (my motor shut down the moment the machine hit the drain cycle). Sure enough, I get 110 volts throughout and 0 at the drain cycle. He says it needs a new timer. If you try to clean it you'll have little springs and things shooting out. Good luck. and Thanks to Mike Anderson (865-945-3808)

Ge Triton XL Dishwasher Fill Problem


I would check your fill valve screen, where your water line connects to the dishwasher, lots of times i will see that screen clogged, especially on customers homes that have wells.

There is no way to change the fill time on these.
There is also the potential problem with the float sticking if it is gunked up it will not allow water in...see that it moves up and down freely and you should here a clicking noise.....If it is not one of these there could be a problem...with the timer...I am providing a link that will help walk you through this problem in a more technical...manner...if you are not comfortable performing these tests...i suggest you forego it and let a tech handle it....

this is one continuous link.....you can scroll down until you see the won't issue.
I hope this helps ..good luck, have a good day& please rate my effort......The Fang
