First--Water enters the dishwasher through the water inlet valve which is the plastic electric valve that the house plumbing attaches to. On GE's its usually under the left front corner once you remove the small access panel. Power is applied by the the timer during the fill cycle. Second-- there is no other filter down in the area you are trying to clean. To remove that rubber boot/sump area you would need to un-install the dishwasher and remove the motor pump assembly from underneath. Here are a couple of things to check for poor cleaning. 1---internal water level---should be about 1/2 inch at door front edge. If not, that inlet valve may be partially blocked and need replaced. 2---water temp needs to be at least 120 minimum. If not hot enough it will not dissolve soap. 3--- look closely at all the little holes in the spray arms. Pay close attention to the end holes that are used to spray out water like a jet engine and spin the arms. Any blocked holes need to be cleaned with something like a toothpick. 4--- check dishwasher at cycle end. If tub has excessive amount of water left inside you may have a blocked drain hose from dishwasher to house drain system. Remove and clean. A small amount of water in sump area is normal but none u near door.

Asko d3121 dishwasher overfills with water inside the washing area then drips down to the lower tub about halfway through the cycle


This could be any number of problems, but the easiest place to start is to check the overflow cap. remove the lower dishrack and set it out of your way. now pull straight up on the center of the lower wash arm (thing made of metal with holes in it that spins and sprays water) It just clips into place so it should come odd easily. behind where that clipped in is a grey sort of squarish cap that covers the overflow. pull up on it and look inside it. if it has a lot of buildup in it, it can cause water to siphon down into the lower overflow tray. clean it out then go buy a couple bottles of a product called dishwasher magic. stuff works wonders for cleaning dishwashers. after you put the unit all back together, follow the directions on the dishwasher magic to let it clean out anything you cant get to and try it again. If this doesn't work, you've probably got a leaking part or a bad water level sensor or a clogged drain hose (usually in the copper or plastic extension someone added to stick down the standpipe because the factory hose wasn't long enough) Hope this helps!

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water


Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

Won't let water in.


If your pump is running, you probably have water in the overflow area so it won't let more come in. You need to pry off the plastic cover that is just below the door. We unscrewed it while following manual instructions, but found that it actually pops off without unscrewing anything. Under there you will find a rubber or plastic cover on the overflow area. Remove it, drain the water into a container and then put the covers back on. The dishwasher should work now.

Standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher


I had the same problem - a 10 minute fix. The issue tends to be that the trap gets clogged by debris (like broken glass etc.) and restricts the amount of water that can be evacuated by the tub.

1. Undo the trap cover (two hex headed screws)
2. Remove the trap cover
3. Remove the inner trap grate
4. BE CAREFUL NOW ! Gently remove debris - this can have broken glass in it !!! - You can use a wet vac if you have one. Ensure all debrs is removed and the trap is clear.
5. Clean trap cover and grate
6. Re-install cover and grate
7. Bingo !

Dishwasher won't drain


I rethought your problem and will provide a generic answer that is common to your brand of DW....

GE dishwashers will have a sump entrance screen ( #4 ) that should be removed and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which is behind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separate drain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the most common GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drain solenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stop the draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain port will not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. The solenoid can be ohmed with an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GE dishwashers have a self clean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back. The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body. This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow the draining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and the plunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstacle for the draining water in the back flush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twist or distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to be accessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the self clean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drain hose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked for restrictions.


Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....

During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled water falls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes through the filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( we hope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into the collection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump out mode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closes the piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collection chamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve is located in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the drain direction only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drain line check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve in the collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out is complete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into the tub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

Here is a link for you to check out...I have all this info in my data base but since it is in PDF format it does not translate well to this format...

Brand new dishwasher overflows all over counter during each rinse


It sounds like you have an Air Gap...a separate device that is used to prevent back flow into the DW. Take off the top of the air gap and see if it is gunked up and or clean it with a shop vac...as well disconnect the line to the drain evac it as well... also there is a reservoir in the back that is attached to the drain pump...take the screws out...see that it is clean and free of debris...be careful as glass or other particles can be in there. Also have you had a new dispoal installed if so the drain plug may not have been removed. As i read more I am certain you have an air gap...make sure it is cleaned and free from obstruction....if this does not solve the problem...here are some other GE specifc things and a link to help......


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

GE dishwasher GSD2200G00WW dishes not clean


Make sure the spray arm is actually rotating and the jets aren't clogged. You should be able to hear the arm rotating when the dishwasher is operating.

Otherwise, perhaps the pump is plugged or not working and the water isn't "jetting"
