Question about Dishwashers
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.
