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!

SOURCE: 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

I just posted the soloution that I found for this problem to another question. I found a bone stuck in the impeller of the discharge pump. Requires that you pull the unit out turn it on its side (rather messy and everything needs to get disconected as if you were going to remove the unit from the house and install a new one). Find the discharge pump and remove the cover (I pulled a 2.5" rib bone chip) remove the blockage, button everything back up, hook it all up slide it back in and now mine works.

I was having the same problem and downloaded a copy of the manual and found out it is normal for a couple of inches to remain in the tub! I can't remember where I downloaded the manual, but you can "Google" it like I did. Hope this helps :o)
