Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher does not complete cycle

My dishwasher will start, "washing" light on, when draining to begin rinse cycle, the soap has not drained from the washing. The rinse cycle continues with soapy water. I have run it through the rinse cycle over and over (a wast of water) and it is still soapy. I tried placing a tiny amount of cascade in the dispenser, and it is still too much soap. Seems like it drains, but comes back in, or something. The drying time has diminished to 4 minutes. The time on the panel was 85 min to continue the entire cycle, now, it is 50 min. I have had two service techs here, neither of them could figure out the problem; one said just try vinegar in the water, which I did, and it did not help, the other said that he was not certain, but would order a new motor, which would take care of any problem. This does not make any sense to me, seems that since it is not draining to rinse good and not drying, it would be the pump and the heating element (if that is what dries).
What could be the problem?
Thank you.

The solution i'm going to give you might sound weird but it should work. The drain hose should have a curve of about 36 inches up and then down to the drain. This avoids the water to drain on its own, the water has to be forced out by the washing machine. hope it helps.

I have an older GE dishwasher Model # GMB921HB119. The machine operates normally till it reaches what I believe is the final rince cycle and stops. The timer continues to advance, reaching the drying cycle...


Is this machine new to you or have you had it long enough to see it work properly?

If it used to work as it should then you know that there is probably a problem other than your water or soap. If you have whopping lime in your water then the problem could be in a water treatment system (softener, RO system, etc) Is there a screen and is it not plugged when you clean it? Does the machine drain the wash water properly? Does it spray in the rinse cycle?

If the screen is not plugged then it should be able to drain the wash water. If it's draining the wash water then you should get a good rinse if you're not using too much soap. If it's not draining the wash or spraying the rinse then I'd suspect the timer. If it's not draining I'd suspect a plugged screen, a solenoid valve or the timer. If it's not spraying the rinse then it's just about got to be the timer.

Dishwasher doesnt drain on wash cycle,ok on rinse cycle


Change the circuit board, timer/progrsmer.
Take it out and clean contacts,
Look for burnt circuit line and solder a fine bead carefully on the circuit board, difficult. Use the pot and pan program.

Water won't go out of the dishwasher


Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Does not advance to drain cycle


I would bet that it is the timer switch assy.
Motor runs ? yes
washes? yes
drain tube clear ? yes

If there is no drain valve to deal with, the problem must be the contacts during the timer cycle, since the main obviously works or you wouldn't be able to wash anything.
you need a new timer switch assy.
