Remove all components from the lower spray arm down to the deck noting the position and orientation of each part. At the bottom, remove a large screen--soak it in a hot water and white vinegar solution (5 to 1 ratio) for an hour or two. Scrub the screen to remove water and food deposits. Disconnect the drain hose under the sink and blow through it with either compressed air or a vacuum cleaner set to blow in order to remove any debris in the hose or pump. Reassemble the components in reverse order and test the repair with a trial run--no dishes.

If you can see a constant water pressure from the hot and cold, chances are the water solenoid valves are ok.

I would look towards resetting to factory and checking the main control unit.

Check that the cold water is turned on. The washing machine uses cold water to rinse, and if the cold water is not on, unit will end without completing cycle.

check the pipe leading from the dishwasher to the outlet, maybe under sink. this needs to be raise up as water will flow back into washer. Had this problem myself, felt foolish when the repair man just tied it up and left. !

Won't finish cycle


The water may not be getting hot enough in the rinse cycle. Usually it needs to heat to 140 to 160 degrees for rinsing. If the heating element is not working the water will not heat. If your DW has a Sanitary setting it will be calling for the water to be 160 degrees. If you have the option to override the Sanitary settin, try that to see if the rinse cycle will finish with cooler water.

Water left in bottom of dishwasher after cleaning


I suggest checking the drain and screen. There is most likely a little clog in there. If there is even the slightest amount of clog, the washer will not finish the drain cycle.

GE Nautilus Drain Problem


I had the same problem (water remaining in the bottom) after the rinse cycle. FYI my GE Nautilus is 7-years old.
(1) I disconnected the drain tube at the garbage disposal unit (in the sink) and, using a wire coat hangar freed a 'plug' of sludge located at the spot where the drain tube clamps onto the garbage disposal. I blew into the drainage tube to further clear other 'plugs' I observed but could not reach w/the coat hangar.
(2) I unscrewed the Filter/Strainer on the inside (bottom) of the dishwasher; and further removed the inner filter; cleaned both out.
(3) Re-ran the dishwasher thru complete wash/rinse cycles (to check for leaks. There were none.
Finally, upon completion of the w/r cycles there will always be a small pool of water (residing in the filter area). However my dishes are clean and (after 7-years) checking the drain tube and filters was a breeze.
Hope this helps

Rinse cycle


Is the unit new or used?, or does it wait and then go ahead and finish? This would be normal if it finishes on its own. Some units let things settle between cycles. If you have to nudge the control past a point then to make it finish then it is a problem which would require that the control be replaced. If it used to work different then it too would most likely be the control unit. There are numerous contacts and combinations that change from one setting to the next. Bottom line, does it get the clothes clean?? If it does the don't fix whats not broken...
