My GE dishwasher drains fine after wash cycles. However, After rinsing, about 2 inches of water is left in the tub. The drain runs for 30-35 seconds at the end of each wash cycle, but only 4-5 seconds...
for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues
can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to
kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain
hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump
isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s
check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked.
Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the
disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place.
Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the
disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer
and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and
hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test
the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate
the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.
accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further
