Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem almost always indicate a faulty drainage system. Unless there are defective components, cleaning (although messy) would be corrective. Normally, there would be a filter/screen that could get clogged, a sump/bowl that may be filled, an impeller bot turning or a stuck pump motor. It is also possible that debris could be blocking the drain valve of the drain hose is kinked, blocked or for some reason not discharging. As earlier stated cleaning would normally address the issue.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

If it will drain in other cycles it's the control module... if it won't drain ... you have a clogged drain hose

How do I find and check the drain hose on my GE PDW8480 dishwasher?


The drain hose normally goes to the air gap located next to the sink faucet if it doesn't have that make sure the hose is higher in the middle than it is where it drains to the garbage disposal the dirty water is coming from ur sink from when u wash dishes then it goes back to the dishwasher you need to elevate the drain hose

The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Before loading into the machine you have to remove food particles. Washer will wash the greasy surface. If particles are left in the dishes, the same will find entry to the drain system. Check the drain filter in your machine. Clean them. Mostly problem will be solved!

Uncouple the drain hose connection under the sink and use a wet/dry vacuum to **** out the drain hose and the stub on the sink drain plumbing to clear any possible clogs. There may be a blocked check valve near the pump that might have to be cleaned or replaced. Check the hose itself for any kinks or collapsed section. There might be a damaged drain impeller on the pump. Hope this helps!

GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes


In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.
