1. Check drain pipe, air gap and drain for blockage.

2. Could be too much dishwasher liquid build up (i.e. too much Cascade used over time, clogging things inside the machine). Remove all standing water first then boil a big pot of water (3 to 4 quarts) and carefully pour in to bottom of dishwasher. Let stand until cool. Attempt to drain.

3. Turn off Circuit Breaker to dishwasher. Open kick plate at bottom and look around for the cooling fan for the motor and spin it free in both directions. Look for any solenoids and push them in to the other position. Attempt to drain on dishwasher.

4. If the above steps don't fix it and you are not handy, it's time to call in the repairman or consider getting a new one. If you are handy, do a web search on more detailed solutions for your model of dishwasher (typical failure points are valves, impellers, pump etc).

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


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
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

Water is freezing in the bottom drawer GEProfile bottom drawer freezer and leaking water on floor


Sounds like your drain tube is blocked in the freezer for the defrost water. The drain tube is in the back left or right corner and will have a drain trough under the cooling coils tilting towards it. That trough will probably have ice built up all over it. Once the ice is out you may need to force hot water down the drain tube. I use to use a turkey baster with a rubber hose on it to force the hot water down the drain tube. Its clear when you put water in the trough top and it goes down the tube freely to the drain pan under the refrigerator.

In the owners manual it decribes the yearly cleaning to the drain opening in the freezer compartment. My question is their a water collection pan with this refrigerator and where is it locate how do you...


The water drains into a drain pan that is usually located in the compressor compartmen on the back of the refrigerator. Most newer units you may not be able to remove it. But don't worry, the water in the drain pan will evaporate from the heat produced by the compressor and condenser coil. If you use too much water to clean the drain though, you van overfill it. So just use about two cups of really hot water and a flexible, snake like device ( I use 1/4 inch plastic water line or heavy weedwacker line ). Pour one cup into the drain and then use your snake device and gently run it down into the drain. If it is long enough and you can see where the drain tube drains into the pan, you want to be able to see the end of your snake device exit the drain. Try to break loose any debris and then remove your snake. Pour your second cup of hot water into the drain to flush out any debris and then you are all set.

I need to replace the drain valve at the bottom of the tank,can I buy a replacement valve? Are they all the same size?


There are 2 sizes; 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Remove the old one after draining the water heater and shutting off the water supply then take your old one to a plumbing supply outfit like George Morlan's. Make sure you wrap the new threads with teflon tape at least 3 wraps while holding the spigot in your left hand so the tape won't come off as you install the spigot. Good luck!!

I have standing water in my dishwasher. How do I unclog the drain?


It will be smelly water and if you have access to a shop vac that will help you remove the standing water if not use a bowl or turkey blaster listed below.
Use a small bowl to remove standing water from washer to access screen to remove and check for blockage. Once you have removed all the water that you can with a bowl or cup. You can use a turkey blaster to sucton remaining water from dishwasher.
Then you remove screen and clean out drain and also check drain line for blockage from dishwasher to under sink.

Clean out drain to unclog in bottom of dishwasher and you may have to remove drain line to clean it.

Ice builds up in bottom of freeze side by side


This is usually a plugged drain trough. Every time your refer defrosts itself, the melted frost drips off the evaporator behind the wall of your freezer and drains into a drain trough, through a hole and into a drain tube that ends above a condensate pan where the heat of the compressor-condensor evaporates the water. Food gets into this drain line and plugs up your line, causing it to freeze the melted water into a slab of ice that eventually drips onto your floor. Most units you have to remove the freezer back panel inside the freezer to get to this, although some models you can see the drain trough without removing the panel. You can use hot water to clear this. Flush it out until you hear water pouring into you condensate pan. I use a garden pump up sprayer to shoot pressurized hot water through the drain line to make sure it is cleared out. Needless to say dont use this if you have had any poisonous chemicals in your sprayer. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.

Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the drain pump needs to be replaced.

Per your notes, looks like you are a handy main, so you may want to remove the pump to determine if it is clogged. (Quite dirty job). The drain pump is easy to locate, just follow the drain hose.

Also, check the connection with the food disposer under the sink.
