Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher
We have a built in GE dishwasher. It came with the house. No manual. It just says GE Max on the front. It won't always drain and the dishes come out with a gritty film stuck to them. I've tried running it through with just hot water and dishwasher soap/bleach and no dishes. It worked fine for a couple of runs, and now is back to doing what it did before. Any suggestions before I pitch this thing out the window?? ;)
I only chose the first product on the list as it won't let me go further without putting something in......
I had the same problem with my GE Max model gsd6260k. I could hear it trying to drain and some small amounts of water going into the sink drain pipes but it never emptied it all there was aprox 1/2 inch of water that's 1.25 cm aprox for the metric lovers... lol
What i did was...Clean out all debris that was there.
There is a small basket (aka screen) just behind the bottom arms just a tad to the right i lifed it up enough to get a turkey baster into the opening (drain?). I coudn't seem to find the screws without taking all the bottom apart to get the basket out, as the water line going up the back to the center arms is there. Then i used the baster to remove water and i kept squeezing the air forcefully from the baster into the hole. This help, i don't know if it was a clog or what but i let the tub start to fill with water and then hit the start button again which makes it drain out. It was definately draining faster. when it finished there was no more water in the bottom of dishwasher.

Open the door and look inside the dishwasher,at the bottom you should see a screen/screens.check for any clogs at them.also check the wash arm holes for obstructions.inspect the wash arms for cracks at the seams.run the unit and try to determine the water level on the initial fill,try to notice after a couple of cycles the level stays the same.let me know.

Tips for a great answer:
Apr 30, 2012 | GE Dishwashers
draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or
drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present.
If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove
the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then
the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain
filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump
Please note that
dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element
Hope this helps...
