Question about GE 24 in. GSD6660GSS Built-in Dishwasher
At the end of a wash or rinse cycle, the tub remains half full of water. When I put it into service mode and activate the drain pump, it empties completely. All the drain hoses, pipes and the water inlet inside the tub are clear. When I let the drain hose empty into a bucket, it flows freely and forcefully.
SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't drain
Catriver: The dishwasher model is gsd5920do1bb. I probably posted the original problem in the wrong place. Does a similar fix apply? Sorry about the confusion. Greg

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.

SOURCE: dirty water is left in
First check the height of the drain hose at the back. If the drain hose is setting incorrectly, water from drain may flow back inside the machine causing siphoning and drain problems. Disconnect the drain hose, lay down the hose in a bucket and run a regular cycle. If the machine drains well, then the problem was the height of the drain hose elbow.
If that does not fix the problem, then the fault depends on the machine model. Many GE dishwashers use a pressure switch to detect water level. The water level switch can be responsible for drain problems of this kind.
