Question about GE 25 in. Nautilus GSC3400J Free-standing Dishwasher
Howdy! We have a 4 year old GE Nautilus dishwasher that's been a blessing...never had a problem until about 2 weeks ago. The machine washes fine, drains fine during the wash cycle, rinses fine...then AFTER the last rinse cycle ONLY, the drain pump will not fully engage and drain the tub before the heated dry comes on. The last rinse cycle starts normally - then, just when it's supposed to drain out the last cycle of water of the tub...the pump comes on for a second, stops, starts again for a second, stops and then the rinse cycle finishes and the heated dry comes on. The problem is...the tub is left FULL of water. It does not do this during any other part of the wash cycle. It drains fully and refills fine otherwise. If I fiddle with the knob and get it JUST RIGHT in the Rinse zone...then the drain during the rinse cycle will complete normally...but the next time the machine is run it will return to bad behavior and not do a complete drain after the final rinse.
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.
