Question about GE Profile PDW8400J Built-in Dishwasher
On the "rinse only" cycle, I get a "blocked drain" message on the display about 7 minutes into the 12 minute cycle. The diswasher continues to try to pump, but eventually the blocked drain message begins to flash. When I cancel the rinse cycle to abort, the dishwasher continues to try and complete the "drain" function, but doesn't, so I have to turn off the diswasher at the breaker box. I poured a whole bottle of drain cleaner in to try see if there was a blockage, but that didn't work, and my gut feeling tells me that is not the problem, because I would be getting blocked drain elsewhere if that were the case, I believe. Any ideas, anyone?
Pull the bottom tray out, in the back portion of the center of the dish washer there is a plastic screen looking thing, you will need to take a 1/4 inch nut driver and take out the screw pull off the cover and clean out the drain,, there is probly some food particals in there , it does havea small blade inside there to help sut up fine food that gets thru but it doesn't do it all the time ,, make sure you put the cover back on before runnig the unit

Try this, pull d.w. out and disconnect drain but lift it up and put in sink from out side then try to run and see if it drains this will tell you if pump or other mechanical issue is the cause. not all dishwashers are installed in common way.
