Dishwasher not always draining

We just moved into a new house a few weeks ago. The appliances were left by the previous owners. The dishwasher is a GE brand model number gsd5610d00ww. The dishwasher doesn't always drain. Their is about an inch of water left . Also, we heard a beeping noise a few times but haven't heard that noise for a coule weeks now. Not sure if this is related somehow.

    dishwasher does not drain

  • sabdzine35 Feb 27, 2008

    We just installed the Triton and it won't drain either. I emptied the water and ran the normal cycle. While running I was running the sink and garbage disposal which begain to back up. The water would drain very slowly from the sink, but still wouldnt drain properly. Is there other suggestions I would hate to call service if its a drain issue

    Have the same problem with the dishwasher not draining. It is connected to the drain line in my sink. We always have an inch of water in the bottom of it. It still washes well, but I'm concerned that it is useing old water to clean our dishes. I thought that water was backing up from my sink so I retied the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink with an upward bow in it...still holdes water in the bottom!

If the dishwasher drains through the vent pipe on your sink it may be clogged. I had that problem as well. Unscrew the vent cap and look for junk. In my case of all things it was dog hair!!

I Have a Hotpoint BCI450 - it was conneccted by a previous owner and we do not have the instructions. A few nights ago the washer stopped washing 1/2 way through a progaram leaving a few inches of water...

The problem is associated with the main program controller unit and so it is needed to remove the panel and see if there is any moisture present that had caused the error.
Leaving if off overnight would have resetted the machine or made the panel OK.
So after cleaning if the panel does not work to trigger the inlet then the controller unit must be checked.
Please check on the links below for some tips:

Hi lilwing,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: you have a ge dishwasher you purchased two years ago. you have misplaced your owners manual. you can only tell you it is a ge quietpower 3. you don't even know the model since you've misplaced your owners manual. it started with the timer for speed cycle set itself between 50 and 60 minutes, and you knew that wasn't right. and then yesterday it did not drain all the water out. you know there is no food particles in it because you clean them before you put them in the washer and the drain line it is hooked up to is working proberly also. can i help?

First, the model and serial numbers are in the door jam. Open the door and look right and left.
The rest sounds like a bad control board, It will require a pro. If the d/w has a few years on it you may want to consider the price of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!
