GE: dishwasher isn't draining water and leaks foam during cycle

Model: gsd2000j01ww
I've opened the panel underneath, i don't see a sensor.  I've checked the plastic drain and nothing is blocking it.  I can't unscrew the plastic drain because there's a layer of foam from the wash and i can't see it.
The water just stays there and doesn't drain.  This has happened to me in the past, i switched powders and the problem was temporarily solved and it drained fine, but i guess i put in too much powder this time (with the same powder!) and for some reason it's over flowing again.  
This leads me to believe its not the powder, but something else sinister is happening behind the scenes.  I've been bucketing water out of the bottom as much as i could...   i hope someone has an easy solution.  Maybe there's a switch or simple sensor that isn't being triggered?

    I have the same problem. Awhile ago, I tried to remove the gasket in the drain. So far it drained the water and I am thinking of totall removing it but not quite sure if it is required.

Samsung dishwasher leaking from bottom


Whenever this happens to me, there is food/debris covering the plastic mesh screen that covers where the water exits underneath. It starts dripping because, with it clogged/impaired, the water inside rises slightly and starts leaking out of the bottom front door seal. After I clean up the debis (and sometimes there is debris near/in the drain itself - that's why the mesh pops off so that you can get to it), the leaking stops. I also put a new foam seal on the bottom of the door (just added self-sticking insulating foam strip like you would use on a front door of a house, right on top of the lame seal that was already there), worked great. Good luck.

Where is the draining hole in a ge profile model tbx25pa refrigerator with top freezer


Underneath the cooling coil (evaporator) located in the freezer, there is a drain pan with a heater to warm it during the defrost cycle. The drain opening is probably blocked by ice or debris.

GE PDW9280J00SS not draining. I have read other posts that say this is a "water level sensor problem" but that doesnt make sense since it FILLS to the proper level. After cleaning cycle, then it...


GE dishwashers use either a drain solenoid or a separate drain pump assembly. Sounds like your drain pump isn't getting power to it until you start other cycles, which sounds like control board issues.

The water isn't getting hot


If the water to your kitchen tap is above 120 to around 145 your machine is getting hot water. If not your need to adjust your hot water heater.
It is fine to open the DW door during the wash cycle. The unit will hold the wash cycle. Open the door during the start of the wash cycle (not rinse) and see it the dispenser door is open. If not it could be the timer is not sending the proper signal to the dispenser on when to open. This would be a timer issue and you would want to replace the timer. I doubt that this is it but it is possible.
Hope this helps.

GE GSD2000J01WW dishwasher , full of water at bottom of machine


The drain motor (pump out motor) in line with the outlet pipe could be faulty. This motor must spin (to pump out water) in the drain mode. If AC (mains)voltage is across motor in pumpout mode and the motor does not spin indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. Has one of the 2 motor push on electrical connections dislodged?
Is the outlet pipe obstructed?

DISHWASHER IS LEAKING A LOT OF WATER


I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!
