Question about GE Dishwashers
Dishwasher GE GSD2100N00BB is not draining the water out even after changing the motor/pump kit and selenoid. The drain on the bottom of the dishwasher is clean and the hose is not cloged or has any kinks. Also plug from trash disposal has been removed.
There is a pump that pumps this water out of this unit have you tested the pump itself outside of the unit to see if its is pumping water at all? the motor pump kit you bought for this unit was it certified by the manufacture to be a actual replacement for this unt? Dishwashers are so inexpensive they can be baught for less then what the old one is repaired for. I seen a slew of information and you bee nthrought a lotf of experts for information i am jst wondering if there getting any benefit from trying to help you out with your issue?
1. check pumps outside of unit!
2. check hoses for clogs outside of unit!
Make sure these pumps are geting signal to pump water from unit. You need this part direct from them
Thanks and rate me please!

I will provide you with all the data on possible causes and their possible fixes.
If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.
Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.
Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.
Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.
Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

thank you for using fixya.
with regard to your issue, here is the possible cause. The check valve is worn and letting water back in the tub while it is draining there for not draining all the water out.
Can temporarily be repaired with a cork until i can get a new check valve.
You may also try to restart dishwasher with rinse only and as soon as it starts push reset and it will drain water out.
Going deeper into the appliance, the dishwasher has a rubber flapper style check valve located between the soil collection chamber and the drain line. These go bad and restrict the water from draining out. Also some models have a valve under screen in back called a piston valve if this has debris keeping it from opening and closing or is deteriorated you will need to change this also.Start washer let fill initiate pump out water should exit rapidy into drain if its slow check both items above
Hope this helps, if you have other question, please do not hesitate to let me know.
