GE GSD 6200 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.

    I have a GE GSD 6200 Dishwasher that will not drain. Thought it clogged so applied liquid plumber - that didn't work so took it apart replaced 2 flapper valves and still wont drain. Since I had it apart I applied 110V to the drain pump and it works but even in service mode the drain pump will not run. I also suspect the soap dispensor as service mode 1 should run both but neither operate. I'd guess they're in series by the color of the wires but can be sure. I did check the resistance of the soap door motor/heat switch which is within range - any guesses?

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

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

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

Hi.

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.

Hello,
After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone??
If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.

Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher,
Gene

Asko dishwasher did not finish complete washing cycle and now has a very low humming sound. It will not start washing cycle. I have turned it on and off but after I turn it back on humming sound...


Some wash water may have gotten into the bottom pan area below the wash tub. If water has overflowed from the tub into the bottom pan, the drain pump will activate and remain active until water has been removed from the bottom pan. To check for this, the lower front panels will need to be removed. With power turned off at the breaker, a wet-vac can be used to remove water from the bottom pan. If there was water there, check the door seals, door closure and make sure the drain hose has a high-drain loop. If the drain is shared with the kitchen sink, it may simply have backed up into the dishwasher through the drain hose when a full sink was emptied. The best drain system is for the dishwasher to have its own separate drain.

WATER WILL NOT PUMP OUT OF MACHINE


Here are some solutions for GE built dishwasher when water will not pump out of machine:

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.

Water wont pump out at end of cycle


it would be helpful to have the full model number of the dishwasher.

do you get any lights flashing? how do you know it is end of cycle? could be still in wash and not got to rinse at all. Do you hear the drain motor running?

Try with a shorter cycle like simple rinse only and see if it drains the water.

I am assuming you have checked the filters are clean and there is no blockage in the kitchen drain.

I have a GE GSD 5130 Dishwasher that leaks about 12 oz of water when it is pumping out the wash water and the rinse water. Its fine during the wash and filling cycle. Is it a seal problem?


This is more likely the hose connection at the drain pump or the pump housing is leaking. You will need to remove the toe kick, place unit into a drain cycle and inspect for a leak. Here is a couple links that should help.

Dishwasher stopped draining after cycle


Some water always remains in the bottom of the DW (al least with most DW) but here is some help....

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.

Dishwasher doesn't drain


Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.
