Re: GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom
Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those. http://tclaundryrepair.com/

I am assuming leaking when it is running, not sitting idle. Leaking from the door? Fill and run unit for 1 minute with no detergent. Open door. Are suds present? Suds turn into water when they drop to the floor. Suds can flow over the lip of the tub and drip to the floor. Oversudsing, Sometimes old detergent breakdown. Rinse aid dispenser leaking will cause oversudsing. Combination of all in one products will cause many problems. If suds are present after running unit a minute, pour a cup of cooking oil in unit. Run and fill it a few times until suds are gone. Possible most common cause is dispenser latch grommet.
HI- Ah yes, the suds. Your flood switch has probably been tripped. Unplug the machine or flip the breaker. Remove the lower kick panel and you'll see the white plastic bottom of the dishwasher pan. This is designed to catch the water (or suds) if there is a leak or the water (or suds) over fill it. This will take awhile but get some pliable rag and carefully put it in the space between the bottom of the dishwasher and the pan. There is a styrofoam float on the left side about halfway back, this has to be down for the dishwasher to advance the cycle and get out of drain mode. Just keep soaking the water up (you kinda have to go over the plastic lip of the pan and down wherever there is an opening large enough to get the rag into. Once it is pretty dry it should run ok.
Regarding the suds. If you get the machine to run ok then start a rinse cycle and once the water is done filling open the door and add about 4 tablespoons of any cooking oil to the water. Shut the door and let the machine run for about 10 seconds, open the door check to see if there are still a lot of suds, if so cancel the cycle to drain the machine and repeat. Hope this helps, good luck.
ok, the machine flooded and the water has leaked into the bottom of the machine, 1st turn off the machine at the power point. 2nd- open the top drawer and remove the suds from it. 3rd. open the bottom drawer and look under it to the bottom of the cabinet . that is where the water will be. use a torch if you have to. now you need to dry the water up. you can do this with a hair dryer or a fan heater. the reason the machine is flashing F1 is because the water has triggered the flood switch and you need to dry up that water. please reply 4 more help.once dryed F1 will disappear. please make sure all the suds are removed from the top drawer. good luck
dishwasher soap does not suds up.you have a different type of soap in there.the only way to remove it is dumping cold water inside then running it. find where the soap came from so it wont happen again.possably the rinse aid?
Someone put the wrong detergent in this machine causing the suds problem. Manually fill the machine with COLD water. Set it to pump out. Refill with COLD water and pump out again. You may have to do this several times to clear the suds lock condition. Use only COLD water as HOT water will cause more suds.
