Question about GE Dishwashers
It's a model GLD4408R00WW. I replaced the drain screens (which were clogged with hard water deposits,) inspected the check valve, checked the drain loop + hose, removed both motors and tested by applying 110V, then ran it through a cycle with test lamps hooked to the motor leads to make sure they were getting power. BTW, the motor makes no noise at all when the cycle is ran with everything hooked up normally. I'm stumped on this. Everything apparently works, but it still doesn't drain.
Air Gap on the sink could be clogged.
Solenoid on the motor could be melted or overheated and it is not letting the check valve open.
Also the motor should make noise. It could be stuck so that it gets voltage but is not turning. You can hear it humming. Unplug the dishwasher and from the front underneath, you can see the fins of the motor. It should spin freely. If it is stuck, the you can force it free by turning the fins with a couple of screwdrivers.Sometime if you don't use the dishwasher weekly, the motor seals dry and gets stuck.

draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or
drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present.
If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove
the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then
the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain
filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump
Please note that
dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element
Hope this helps...
