GE diswasher GSD4020Z02BB doesn't completely drain

Dishwasher runs but doesn't drain completely. I have check the drain in the dishwasher (pumped out with wet vac) and no clogs. I have checked the line into and outof the garbage disposal (no clogs). This system doesn't have an air gap to check. I can see the water draining into the garbage disposal when it runs but the dishwasher doesn't drain completely. Could it be the timer? The float system? I am not sure what to replace but I know I can handle simple repairs.

    catdriver, I appreciate your prompt response. The part number you gave me, WD24X220 doesn't match the ge web-site, which has a part of WD24X10018. Is your part a sub-assembly number. Also you said it goes under the screen at the rear of the dishwasher but I am not sure where exactly you are referencing. For GE's web picture, I can see the assembly but not where it goes. And I have had the rear screen off for cleaning but don't remember seeing this part. However the water was dirty so maybe I missed it. Any clarification would be extremely appreciated.

    I have a GE Nautilus built in dishwasher that doesn't drain, either. I checked the drains for blockage, and didn't find any. I haven't checked the drain hoses yet, but I may try the solution posted on this page.

    i just hooked up a GE dishwasher that flows into a garbage disposal. i have no air gap. the water pools and does not drain. i unhooked the drain hose from disposal and turned on machine, then water will drain in a bucket. the directions say to remove the disposal drain plug, is this plug set in a couple inches because i can stick my finger in an inch or so and feel a plug unless it is a check vavle. any suggestions? thanks model is gld4450

This is exactly what happened to me and I paid the repair man. Learn from me. Open dishwasher, unscrew screen along back of dishwasher. Piston assembly should be right there. Part is WD24X10018. GE will charge you $17 plus labor. Can buy it on-line for around $12. Takes about two minutes to fix.

Rs, in the back under the screen is a piston nut assy. This is a common problem on these GE's. The seal on the assy. becomes warped or worn and when this happens we get water left in the tub after drain. It's an easy fix. The screen comes off and the pistion nut assy. simply unscrews. The part number is WD24X220. You can look it up on the net, inexpensive. Catriver..post back.

    rs, it's possible that the part numbr changed. but it will look like the one in the link that I sent you. In the tub area in back right hand side there is a filter screen. Remove the screen. In the sump area near the left side is the piston nut assy. This unscrews and lifts out. Replace it with the new piston nut assy. Catriver.

Catdriver is correct. For my GE model (GSD4020Z07BB) , there are two filter baskets. There is one in the middle (2 screws), and a long one in the back (4 screws). I removed the middle one and cleaned it out. The back one contains the piston nut assy (which I purchased on Amazon) part # WD24X10018. The piston nut was difficult to turn, so I had to use a screwdriver and hammer (placing the head of the screwdriver against one of the tabs, and hammering) counter-clockwise). This loosened the piston enough to remove, and replace with the new one. Everything is now working back to normal, thx to catdriver.

    Thanks for the tip. I was able to easily (no hammer, just fingers) remove my piston nut assembly, clean it and problem solved. But I did notice some wear on the assembly, probably causing it not to seal correctly, especially after a 2-3 week period without use. So I have kept the part number saved in Amazon for quick purchase if the problem re-occurs. Thanks for suggesting Amazon and providing updated part number. It was helpful to 'see' the part and go from there.

If you talk to your repairman, he will explain to you that it is suppose to not drain completely because it keeps the rubber and other parts wet so it will not deteriorate. It is supposed to keep a small amount in the bottom. We have had ours for 11 years.

My whirlpool quiet wash plus diswasher is not draining water. How do I fix it?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My diswasher does not drain.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
