Standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher

After my GE Nautilus dishwasher finishes its full cycle the is standing water on the bottom of the tub. The dishes are all covered with a cloudy film. This started today. I looked for a filter and found none.

    i removed trap cover and fished around but found no debris to remove

  • tmhighs May 21, 2009

    Just last night found about 3 inches of water in the bottom. Drained the water, took off the trap cover and the grate. All the connections are fine - no kinks in drain pipe, etc. Water just won't drain, it's almost as if the pump is bad. Is that possible?? (dishwasher is around 6 years old and only runs about 15 loads/year. I see several people with this problem - is everyone's dishwasher about 6-years-old too?)

I had the same problem - a 10 minute fix. The issue tends to be that the trap gets clogged by debris (like broken glass etc.) and restricts the amount of water that can be evacuated by the tub.

1. Undo the trap cover (two hex headed screws)
2. Remove the trap cover
3. Remove the inner trap grate
4. BE CAREFUL NOW ! Gently remove debris - this can have broken glass in it !!! - You can use a wet vac if you have one. Ensure all debrs is removed and the trap is clear.
5. Clean trap cover and grate
6. Re-install cover and grate
7. Bingo !

Try manually adding water to the dishwasher. If it works then the water valve is just clogged. Sometimes it gets full of gunk and the machine will take in water but not enough to run properly. It is in the upside down cup shaped thing on the bottom left front. The other possibility is the Cam/Timer. It is in the door right behind the dial. This is the part that triggers all the different actions.
If when you add water it doesn't work then the valve or the solenoid on the pump assembly is likely done.

Water didn't drain, left in bottom of washer tub


I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water


Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

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.
