Water in dishwasher, will not pump out. Noise when machine is turned on


Dishwasher not 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 impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Why do my dishes no longer seem to get clean? The glasses are spotty and foggy, small bits of food left on the plates, etc. They not completely dirty as they were when I put in to wash, but they're...

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

White film and food particles on dishes

Did you check the incoming water quality, regarding hardness!

If your washing machine supports salt addition technique, fill the appropriate box and fill the salt that is meant for washing machines. Salt works as a softener.

Finally check your rinse aid also for it's fill in the dispenser meant for it

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Dishwasher not working (Model MDB5601A)

While I am not directly aware of the controls on the dishwasher I'd unplug it for a minute or two to see if the control reboots (for lack of a better term) I've seen many electroic devices that on occasion have this type of problem and simply taking the power from it may correct it.
I hope this helps,

GE Dishwasher Hot Start

Here's the current situation, as established in the two months since a new GE dishwasher was installed:
  1. Tow separate service calls established the the machine is supposedly working perfectly, but does not was dishes effectively.
  2. The not water heater now heats water to the highest safe level to avoid scalding people in sinks, bathtub or shower.
  3. The spec sheet for the unit says "HotStart option - Provides optimal water temperature for dependable performance".
  4. This is obviously a lie and a fraud of the public.
  5. It appears GE decided to remove or reduce water heating to lighten its energy consumption, but it does not do so when it requires adding 20 degrees to 30 gallons in a water heater 168 hours a week instead of 4.25 gallons per load on a machine used only a few hours per week.
  6. The fix should be easy...all GE has to do is to reset the HotStart temperature so it heats water enough to dissolve the detergent and clean the dishes.
As it is, the dishwasher is only a way of drying dishes completely washed in the sink. I would not suggest buying this dishwasher.

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

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.
