Most likely there is something in the drain pump blocking the normal draining procedure.

remove the lower panel on the front of the machine and you will see the pump and the drain hose attached. disconnect the hose and check it. then look in the little pump for a piece of glass or other debris.

please rate my answer as a fixya. thanks

HOW TO ADJUST BOTTOM BLADE OF MY GE PROFILE DISHWASER


What do you mean "bottom blade"? Do you mean the lower wash arm? There is no "adjustment" built into the dishwasher, but if it's hitting the heater element (or its supports), you might be able to bend it slightly. If it's hitting the lower rack, make sure your rack has all of its wheels attached, and that it's not bend down.

The pump on my GE Profile dishwasher is not draining.


If it is the last cycle only it is not the pump. It is a wiring or timer issue. Most likely the timer.

GE profile dishwasher won't drain


Common cause of this problem is a partially blocked drain line. Disconnect drain line and make sure entire path is clear, including where it connects to the sink drain or garbage disposal. Also, make sure all screens and the drain area at the bottom of the dishwasher are completely clear.

I have a GE PDW8060GSS dishwaser. The washer does not turn on. The "anti bacterail" swith keeps blinking. There is some water standing inside the washer. Tried draining, but water keeps coming back. Not...


If after draining water comes back then you need to check the waste water system for any cloughs. Problem might even be at the dwelling drainage system as any blockages would prevent water from going out from washer. Check the waste hose, filter and pump. clean them all if needed.

Best of luck

Food left in dishwaser


the dishwasher drain line must be elevated above the disposal.

if drain is in proper position check the "p" trap under the sink for a blockage.

Can you get the water to drain at all in any cycle? If you can, then its possibly the control module .

If you can't get it to drain in other cycles or when you cancel the cycle, then its a possible clog in the drain outlet hose, drain solenoid, or screens.

Here is a good detailed link to check out that explains about it:

Dishwaser Fills But Does Not Run


You may have a problem with the spray arm being blocked or the water valve may not be letting a sufficient amount of water through to get the spray arms activated. If the dishwasher is still in warranty schedule service before it runs out. GE customer service number is 800-626-2000 model and serial numbers and purchase dates are helpful. Ask specifically if any kits are available to fix these problems and if GE is willing to make any concession toward this repair. Good Luck.
