It could depend on the brand and model number of the dishwasher; for example, many older GE dishwashers would develop draining problems as they age. But regardless of the brand, a drain problem could be caused by an obstruction in the drain hose (most common), or in the air-break (if you have one), or at the check valve; or something may be blocking or stopping the drain pump impeller. If you got a new garbage disposal installed, make sure that you (or the installer) remembered to knock out the hard-plastic plug at the end of the dishwasher connector port. Also make sure you don't have a clog right there. If all that checks out okay, then you will probably want to call a professional because the next steps involve removing and dismantling the drain pump.
check your drain hose.if all is good most common with older ge dishwashers is the piston valve take the screen off the back end behind the heater and in the midle is the valve it unscrews from the base. look at it and if the rubber valve is detieriated replace it
either the check valve on the end of the drain hose that connects to the drainpump motor is closed shut or sometin is clogged inside the drain hose..... also maybe you pump motor assmbly is faulty... u prob need wet/dryshop vac and drain it out from inside then check that hose... hope this helps... possibly may need to replace that drain hose,,, prob not worth reparing if its a pump motor depending on which brand some had 5 yr part warranties on the pump motor assembly
Make sure you aren't selecting the eco setting to conserve power. Running a dishwasher in that mode disables the heating element that dries the dishes at the end of a cycle. Here a few ideas you can try,... with an empty dishwasher.. start a cycle and make sure you do not use that ECO mode if it has that feature.. then stop the dishwasher when it near the end of the cycle and open the door ./.. check to see if the water has been drained and that the heater element is on and hot. If there is a high volume of water in the bottom of the dishwasher, make sure the darin filter screen is clean and not restricting water flow... If that is clean.. and you have a lot of water in the bottom pan, you could have a problem with the pump, a hose in line with the pump or your house drain system is restrictive.. Good luck... and Hope this helps you..
make sure the drain line is clear ....when the dishwasher is going through the drain cycle there should be water running down your sink drain .....if you don't hear it or see it then your drain line is pluged ....un plug it and you should be fine
Hi Jay. Remove the lower front panel and you will see the drain hose. On the machine end of the drain hose is a small drain pump. Disconnect the hose and the pump and you will most likely find a partial blockage in the form of a piece of glass or something preventing a total drain.
make sure you are getting plenty of water. Start the D/W without putting soap in disp. run for about 1 minute, Make sure there are no suds inside. If there is, run full cycle to get excessive amount of soap out. If no suds check in pump resevoir to make sure its not clogged.
