GE dishwashers will have a sumpentrance screen ( #4 ) that should beremoved and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which isbehind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separatedrain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the mostcommon GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drainsolenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stopthe draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain portwill not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. Thesolenoid can be ohmedwith an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GEdishwashers have a selfclean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back.The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body.This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow thedraining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and theplunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstaclefor the draining water in the backflush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twistor distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to beaccessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the selfclean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drainhose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked forrestrictions.

I bought a new one and installed it myself. hardest part of installing was taking the old unit out. I compared the cost of a second repair of a 10 year old dishwasher vs. purchasing a new one. We also checked the pump and solenoid to find problems that caused the water not to enter the unit. The new one we purchased is much better, quieter, and Energy Star.

The most possible problem is that the water inlet valve has failed ..

It is quite technical and please don't deny the credit to the expert by voting him low if the answer is valid and cannot be tried at home.
