My GE 9200 profile dishwasher does not drain. My husband can do the repairs if he knew how to take it apart. mjoviak@aol.com


The filter is probably blocked.


It is inside the base of the machine.


Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

My Ge Dishwasher (bought less than a yr ago....has a terrible odor. Vinegar solves it for a few days but comes back....any way to remove the ''basket'' to see if food is trapped?


Couple things you can check. One is check the drain and where it is connected, Usually into the disposal. If so then remove the hose and give it a good cleaning or re plaice. Sometimes the hose can fill up with small food particles from the dishwasher and remain stuck in there and work its way back into your clean water.
Also try this, run some hot water in your faucet, and smell the water, if your detecting a odor, then you may want to flush out your water heater, may be filled up with excess tank contaminates etc.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps you out.

Does not always drain the tub. less than 1 yr old


make sure there are no obstructions in the drain area of the dishwasher. make sure where the drain hose comes out of the pump, it is routed high up. as high as the top of the dishwasher and then back down to where it attaches to the sink drain. most people secure it to the bottom of the countertop. disconnect the the dishwasher drain where it goes into the kitchen sink drain and look for obstructions. it is most likely in this area that the problem will be.

Water is puddeling on the bottom of my 18 yr. old GE dishwasher


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish


Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

Did you remove the knock-out in the disposer...if not that's why you are not draining.

GE profile Dishwasher less then 1 yr old


There is a drain hole in the side (probably) of the garbage disposal which must be manually "punched out" in order to attach the hose from the dishwasher to the garbage disposal and thereby allow for draining. Think of this as the dishwasher piggy-backing on the existing drain system for the sink/garbage disposal. I am certain this will solve your problem.
