Question about GE Dishwashers
There is approx 1 inch of water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher after cycle complete. otherwise works well. checked the air gap it is clear. the dishwasher has its own drain separate from the garbage disp or sink. model GSD5400G00WW
the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.

There should be an overload button somewhere on the bottom of the disposal motor. This is to prevent the motor from trying to run if the chopping blades are jammed, otherwise the motor would burn up.
First, try to move the blades with something like a broom handle. Using a flashlight you should be able to see the blades. there's probably three of them. try to make sure each one can move even a little bit.
Next, with the disposal switch in the off position, find the overload button and push it in, Then turn on the disposal switch and see if it runs. If the overload button trips off again, repeat the above steps until the blades can turn.
Let me know how this goes. Loringh

It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.
