Try replacing the water inlet valve.

My dishwasher won't drain properly. The pump has been making a weird sound for a month or so and last night it couldn't drain. It starting beeping and the pump was running. I cleaned the drain filter

If the pump is running but noisy then that indicates a loose pump impeller (new pump I am afraid) if running (no noise) but failing to remove water, then I would be checking that drain hose is clear, or even that your machine is not syphoning water from waste disposal, a quick check would be to disconnect waste hose from waste disposal and see if it will then drain into a bucket, hope this is helpful.

'clean' light flashes

Press the normal wash then heated dry buttons in the same sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear any existing faults and makes the dishwasher to operate normally.

To prevent the issue from recurring, run your hot water faucet first to ensure that hot water is present in the entire supply line before starting the filling.

GE Dishwasher shows no power indicators

Lightening can damage the electronic components on the main control board, and they must be replaced. Most boards cost between $150 - $200 plus labor

Electricity went out last night. when i get up this morning, it is making a high pitch squeeling noise and now none of the buttons work????? its a ge profile dishwasher

The electricity probably "surged" when the power came back on. It sounds lke the conrol board may have "fried". Call the repairman and get an estimate.

The most likely cause of the unit is not getting water. If you can remove the kick plate at the bottom and have a voltohm meter you can check: a.the continuity of the solenoid valve at the left front, unplug wireconnector set meter to ohms, touch leads to the terminals if no reading replace complete inlet valve. If you have a reading, then B.Turn on machine, set meter to volts, connect leads to plug, you should have a reading of 120vac. If not, Then the control board needs replacing. If the unit is in warrenty you'll need to contact where you purchased it.

Dishwasher worked fine last night, this morning it is not working

In some supply systems, there is a safety valve ( commonly referred to as a shuttle valve) that has a small ball bearing that blocks the water from flowing if a water line bursts.. This is supposed to be a safety feature to prevent flooding but can be an annoyance if that ball moves and blocks water flow from coming in.
That, or your water inlet valve may be the prime suspects for this problem..
Hope this helps,

DIshwasher Cycle TIme INcreases by 20 minutes over two years

Try cutting the breaker off for 5 min, This will reset the control. The issue is in order for a dishwasher to clean the dishes properly the water in the dishwasher needs to be at least 120 deg f. If its not the dishwasher keeps adding more time with the heater on to try to achieve this temp. The dishwasher only uses about 1 gallon of water per fill so if the water heater is a ways away or the temp is not hot enough, the water temp in the dishwasher will not reach 120.
