    During cycle makes a clicking noise at times. At end of cycle, 2" of water remains in bottom.



    I've cleaned out the exit for the water and found some straws, but no other major objstructions.

    i have the same problem. At the end of the cycle (not always), infact it just started a couple of days back, 1-2'' of water stays at the bottom.

If your GE dishwasher is between 5-10 years old, you may try replacing the check valve piston & nut assy (about $14). It's located on the inside in the rear of the dishwasher behind a screen which is fastened by about 4 screws. Once the screen is off, you can easily unscrew the check valve assy by hand ... install the new check valve assy ... reinstall the screen with the 4 screws ... and save yourself $400 for a new dishwasher.

Apparently, the rubber cone in the check valve assy deteriorates over time and prevents the pump from fully draining all the water from the bottom of the d/w at the end of a cycle.

GOOD LUCK!!

My Dishwasher works but still leaves some standing water.


Check the filter unit located at the bottom (inside) rear for clogging. Sometimes food will accumulate in the filter and not allow the unit to completely drain.

Dishwasher drains but leaves behind about 1/2" of standing water


Water standing in the bottom of the tub is normal.
A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.

I have a GE PDW 8200 Dishwasher and there is standing water in the bottom of the tube. Why is there standing water after a complete cycle?


If it is older, the pump may not be draining the machine completely. The impellers, which is what acually moves the water could be clogged with yuck and could be cleaned if you can take the machine apart. If you call the repairman, he will likely replace the pump and motor.
