SOURCE: dishwasher will not drain water out

if plumbed in under the sink, check the spigot the drain hose goes to is not blocked - a common problem. if on drain you should be able to hear the drain pump working. if you hear a faint humming noise instead, then there is probably a foreign object stuck in pump. also check for blockage in the drain hose

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher is not draining water

GE Prifile dishwashers have a valve called a "Piston" and an "O" -Ring under the screen that become degraded over time. The part is around $10 and it takes about an hour to do the repair. You can do this yourself if you are handy and have some simple tools. You can go to the GE website and get a free owners manual.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

SOURCE: ge quiet power 3 troubleshooting

I have a GE Quietpower 3 dishwasher and let me tell you it is the worst dishwasher, hands down that I have ever owned. It is not quiet and it certainly does not have any power to clean anything. Or so i thought. After reading a few of the posts on this site it dawned on me to check the drainage. I took the whole drain assembly apart. Cleaned all of the gunk out of it. Then went for the drain hose. It was just about a clean as it was brand new. Then i reexamined the drain and found that it did not drain into the Garbage disposal like I am use too. Instead it had to make an immediate 30" climb into a PVC drain that sat just below the underside of the countertop. I rerouted the hose to dump into a bucket and ran the dishwasher. Guess what??? All clean and no residue. I am off to Lowes now to get the clamps and such to drain the dishwasher into the disposal. I still think this dishwasher is the worst I have ever owned and think GE should give that Six Sigma save a few pennies on one DW and the company can save hundred of thousands, at the expense of a customer spending hours on fix-it sites to find out the company cheapened the pump, a rest! However, for all of you that just want to fix your dishwasher, try draining it into the Disposal now before you blow your pump out.

My dishwasher is not draining completely. There seems to be more water left than last time I used it. Also, I tried to used the cancel/drain feature, with no success. Please give me some suggestions!


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The drainage problems are caused by particulate in the drain.

There are 3 areas that cause restrictions with larger food particulate
1. The Air-Gap (if equipped) but the most common blockage point,
2. The sink connection. This is usually a garbage disposal connection. If the user is not properly rinsing long enough while the garbage disposal is in use the garbage disposal / dishwasher connection port is blocked with garbage disposal debris.
3. The bottom of the dishwasher sump area under the lower wash arm. If this area is blocked the user will complain of dirty dishes post cycle, It also causes drainage problems, If the user says dishes are not getting clean and it is not draining properly this will be the LAST area to check. Do 1 and 2 first.

I have had multiple call backs on some units... I have learned to call a brief moment before stopping by and inspect the DIRTY dishes in the dishwasher, the sump, air-gap and sink connection. Most of the time I find that the user is placing dishes with large food particulate in the dishwasher or... they are not letting the water run long enough when using the garbage disposal so the garbage disposal port clogs. These are the same folks that have things like pump impellers and pump housings that get broken due to their daily routine habits.

You wil have to clean all of the drain connections for the dishwasher pump outlet all the way to the sink connection. The Air-Gap is the most common area for blockages so pull off the cover.. unscrew the inner top nut NOTING the installed position BEFORE removal and clean out the Air-Gap (if you have one) Otherwise remove the drain hose at each connection and remove the debris. It is OK ot reconnect each connection after your done cleaning. This will solve about 85% of dishwasher drain problems. The last 15% the lower wash arm and support has to be removed to inspect for pump impeller damage or motor pump housing damage.

FYI the 2nd most common reason for drain problems is the actual sink port connection being clogged. Just clean the drain hose connection ports and the air-gap.

I think once you get all of your drain connections cleaned that your dishwasher will operate normally.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

The auto drainage isn't working properly


You will need to check the drain hose to make sure that you don't have a partial blockage. If you have an air gap check that to make sure it is not partially stopped up. If you don't have an air gap check to make sure your drain hose is not lower than your sink drain allowing water from the sink to drain back into the dishwasher.

GE Quiet Wash 3, top arm does not spin


It sounds like you don't have enough water. Your water inlet valve may be not letting in enough water or the plastic pump inlet screen located on the bottom of your dishwasher had something blocking it.
  1. Check to see if there is something blocking the plastic screen on the bottom of your dishwasher.
  2. When your dishwasher is in the final cycle add a pot of hot water to the dishwasher and see if your dishes come out cleaner.
If the dishes come out cleaner you may need a new water inlet valve.

Dishes just are not getting clean its seems like water is not getting distributed. It is a GE quiet power 3.


You may not have enough water entering the dishwasher and need to have the water valve replaced. Try adding a quart of water during the wash cycle to see if it makes a difference.
