HI. check the following areas for fualts.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

GSD4020Z07BB won't drain. replaced pump and piston nut


When you replaced the pump I am assuming you replaced the whole assembly that pumps water for the wash and drain. See item 310 in this diagram.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-GSD4020Z07BB/0432/0130000/G0040034/00003?blt=15&prst=&shdMod=

If the dishwasher goes through the wash cycle then it was unlikely the thing that was faulty. The pump is shared by both the wash and drain cycle. It is likely the impeller (item 429) is not getting the pulse to change direction so that it draws water from the drain sump to the drain hose rather then to the wash arms as it does in wash cycle. The solenoid connection might be faulty or the controller output is not there.

GE Profile Dishwasher does not drain. model #


I had a similar problem with a GE GSD5811 model. The hoses were clear, and the auxiliary pump worked fine. It turns out that it was the "piston" assembly that had basically disintegrated over time. This part diverts water to the pump during the drain cycle.

To check it, remove the mesh filter at the rear of the inside of the machine, by carefully unclipping the heater element from the back of the machine and removing the 4 hex-head screws securing the filter panel.) Unscrew the piston assembly from the tub, and pull it out. If the sealing plunger has deteriorated or is jammed, replace it. The part number for the "piston and nut assembly" for my machine (and probably numerous others) is WD24X10018. It should cost anywhere between $10 and 16, depending on where you shop.

Another possibility is a bad drain solenoid. (This is what actually triggers the piston assembly during the drain cycles.)

Ge dishwasher model gsd6900jww


Yes, there is only one motor that controls both functions.Have you checked the drain hose??? It may be clogged to some degree or where it meets either the garbage disposal or t-tailpiece, whichever you have. Also, the impeller might look good but may be worn, and check for broken glass which is hard to see in the bottom drain area at the grate. Hope this helps.

GE Dishwasher is not draining water


GE Prifile dishwashers have a valve called a "Piston" and an "O" -Ring under the screen that become degraded over time. The part is around $10 and it takes about an hour to do the repair. You can do this yourself if you are handy and have some simple tools. You can go to the GE website and get a free owners manual.

GE diswasher GSD4020Z02BB doesn't completely drain


rs, in the back under the screen is a piston nut assy. This is a common problem on these GE's. The seal on the assy. becomes warped or worn and when this happens we get water left in the tub after drain. It's an easy fix. The screen comes off and the pistion nut assy. simply unscrews. The part number is WD24X220. You can look it up on the net, inexpensive. Catriver..post back.
