GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!

It sounds like the drain pump has gone bad.
First, unplug the unit or turn of the breaker, then remove as much water as you can with a wet vac if possible.
Remove the panels from the bottom of the front of the dishwasher (removing the big door won't help you) Then, disconnect the drain hoses from the pump (squeeze the hose clamps with pliers), any remaining water will come out when you do this, so you might want to put a thick towel underneath.
Pull out the wires—use pliers so you don't yank the wires out of the plugs, and remove the pump. Look inside and make sure there is nothing stopping the propeller- you may need to unscrew the pump from the plastic housing check.
If there is no blockage, it has likely just "gone bad" but to do one last check: take an old, two wire extention cord and carefully connect each wire to one of the prongs on the pump (make sure no stray wires "dangle" by using electrical tape if you need to) and plug it into a wall outlet.
If the propeller spins, something else is wrong with the machine but if it doesn't, you need a new one.

I've had this problem too, and fixed it by cleaning the lower drain basket. But it could also be your pump or drain hose is clogged. To clean the drain basket, I removed the lower rack and spray arm. To remove the spray arm, turn it counter clockwise while gently lifting it up. There's a lock ring that will also need to be removed. (Remember how these parts come off and in what order.) There is a vertical tube that is attached to the upper and lower spray arms that is secured by a hex-screw that you will need to loosen and disengage from the lower spray arm. After this, you can remove the small protection grid then reach in and clean out the gunk from the basket. I ran a rinse cycle to see if it did the trick and sure enough, it now drains. By the way, I am NOT a professional.

The GE GSD5500 has a check valve in the rear of the unit under the FILTER FRAME that screws in. GE part WD24X10018.
The white rubber stopper wears out and lets water return to the tub!
Remove filter frame (4 screws) and unscrew the check valve to replace. Try appliancepartspros.com for part # AP2617344.
