Ge nautilus dishwasher

Dishwasher is not pulling water into the unit in the wash cycle, but does in the rinse cycle. I could probably fix myself, but dont know what I am looking at. Thanks for your time.

Re: Ge nautilus dishwasher

Check inlet valves as if you have 2, it may fill using 2 inlets (hot & cold) but only rinse on using 1 ((cold only). So if the cold inlet is faulty, then you will only notice on the rinse. If thats not it then chances are it is the controller unit. regards

Soap stays on botton of dishwasher

  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, if you don't see any water at least once - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,

Check the pump, make sure it is working properly and pumping water out. If it is then check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged.

GE Nautilus Drain Problem

I had the same problem (water remaining in the bottom) after the rinse cycle. FYI my GE Nautilus is 7-years old.
(1) I disconnected the drain tube at the garbage disposal unit (in the sink) and, using a wire coat hangar freed a 'plug' of sludge located at the spot where the drain tube clamps onto the garbage disposal. I blew into the drainage tube to further clear other 'plugs' I observed but could not reach w/the coat hangar.
(2) I unscrewed the Filter/Strainer on the inside (bottom) of the dishwasher; and further removed the inner filter; cleaned both out.
(3) Re-ran the dishwasher thru complete wash/rinse cycles (to check for leaks. There were none.
Finally, upon completion of the w/r cycles there will always be a small pool of water (residing in the filter area). However my dishes are clean and (after 7-years) checking the drain tube and filters was a breeze.
Hope this helps

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

Help the water on my dishwasher is screwy.

The problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side on most models), in which case replace the water valve.
