Question about GE GSD5620DBB Dishwasher
First check that there isn't anything blocking the drain area inside the bottom of the dishwasher. Sometimes plastic wrap, a small Tupperware, etc. top gets sucked against the drain and blocks discharge. If nothing is there, (look really good, by getting out as much water as possible!!!). If nothing there, see if you have an "air-break" installed at the kitchen sink, this prevents backflow from the sink drain back into the dishwasher, check it by removing the decorative cover and see if it is clean and has no obstructions blocking water flow.
Another thing to check, is if you recently had a new disposal installed, it's possible that the dishwasher inlet was never "punched out" all the way to allow for the dishwasher to properly drain thru the disposal. If none of those, continue with the investigation!
Check to see if some broken glass might have worked its' way into the drain area, beneath the drain discharge guard. You'll have to remove the cover, some are just clipped in place while others have a screw holding them in place.
If still nothing, it is possible that something has worked its' way all the way into the discharge pump section and you'll need to remove the dishwasher from under the counter to get at the pump section.
Normally when the dishwasher is in the pump out sequence, you can hear the pump motor and impeller spinning. It is possible that you have a partial obstruction and will have to remove the pump housing to get at the problem
Bucket and towels will be needed to soak up all any water that you couldn't remove before pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop.
If there is no obstruction in the discharge pump section check the discharge value (usually a simple rubber flap) is moving freely and has nothing obstructing it.
You should be able to cycle the dishwasher through a short cycle (wash & rinse) to see if everything is working OK again.

Hey friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
It is normal to have water in the tub after your Frigidaire washer has completed the final spin cycle. The water that is in the tub is there to help prime the pump. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt
