Re: GE Nautilus 4800 Dishwasher/Shuts off/ No water...

It may be the motor start capacitor or the motor or the wiring to it. Some units have a built-in switch that shuts the unit off if the motor doesn't start turning after a short interval. However, if it drains it usually means the motor runs enough to pump it out. These units usually stop draining when the fill switch opens at the lower level.

The water will not drain from the dish washer and there does not seem to be anything blocking the drain. I ran it through another cycle and now it is leaking water slowly. Is there anyway to drain this...

I would suggest removing and cleaning the filter sometimes debree and build up of small particals can stop it from draining. Clean the filter in hot soapy water and then replace it in the dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a cycle, this worked for me.

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water

Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

Our ge nautilus dishwasher has the lock light and delay light on and we can't figure how to reset

Unplug or switch off the circuit breaker for a couple of minutes. Sometimes, these machines are sensitive to power blips and just like your computer need to be re-booted.

Pdw7800 rests before completeing rinse and dry cycles

It might be a glitch in the dishwasher's computer memory. Try turning off the power at the breaker box for ten seconds or so. This should clear the memory. After turning the power back on, restart the dishwasher.

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.
